Old American Golf Club: A Dallas Fort Worth Must Play

So on the fourth day of our 2016 Dallas Invitational we got to play the Old American Golf Club. This golf course I was intrigue to play because it's a throwback to those old American claasic golf courses created during a period from about 1910 to about 1937. Having never played any courses like Shinnecock, National Golf Links, Maidstone, Pinehurst, and Prairie Dunes, I was excited so be able to play the Old American as it was top on my list for our Dallas Golf Invitational.

 

First off the customer service at the Old American is second to none from the warm greeting our group got from GM Mike McCabe to Ben who who went over the subtle intricacies of the course with us. He took his time with us answering our questions and even met us later to greet us on the first tee. Alex at the comfort station between the 4th and 8th hole was not only attentive to our questions but also poured a mean Bloody Mary. Defintely 5 star service for our group.

 

 

Visually right away you feel like you're playing an Old Classic designed course, trust the yardages from the GPS enable carts. It's best to be short of the flag on your approach.

 

Strategic shots are rewarded at Old American Golf Club.

 

Waste bunkers are strategically placed in areas that challenge any level of golfer. Designers Justin Leonard and Tripp Davis created an amazing golf experience along the shoreline of Lake Lewisville.

 

The more natural bunkers are beautiful to the eye but can be punishing for the golfers depending on the depth of the bunker as well as the grass around them.

 

If your planning a buddies golf trip to the Dallas/Fort Worth area Old American must be one of the golf courses on your list. Spectacular scenery and amazing layout, design and conditions. Customer service see below.

 

 

Alex was kind enough to take our foursome's picture at the comfort station at the 4th/8th hole. Phenomenal customer service and great adult beverages. Top notch customer service.
