Boasting a spacious driving range and practice areas for putting and chipping, Timbercreek Golf Center helps club-toting clientele hone all facets of their golf games. Buckets brimming with obedient range balls facilitate swing improvements, as each spheroid willfully subjects itself to swing experiments while commending duffers for their stylish neon knickers. All-grass hitting areas further enhance practice sessions, as the organic surface more closely emulates on-course lies and allows golfers to seek divot-tearing vengeance on Mother Earth for a lifetime of debilitating grass stains. Well-struck drives jettison balls into the stratosphere before they rain down on the range's large target greens that beckon in the distance. The range is also illuminated each night, enabling divoteers to hone swings in late-night sessions.
The driving range at DA’s Golf Learning Center sports more than 50 hitting stations—including 22 covered tees—each nestled on a lush plot of natural grass. Armed with a bottomless bucket of globular whackables, practice putters can shore up their short game, whittle wobbly wood strokes into steady drives, and prove that two balls hit in the exact same place trigger a wormhole to 15th-century Scotland. DA’s replenishes its range reservoirs annually with 60,000 high-quality golf balls, ensuring that every player is met with a cute, dimple-cheeked golf aid. Today’s deal also grants access to a practice putting green, two pitching greens, three greenside bunkers, and one fairway bunker.
Course architect Tripp Davis drew inspiration from both classic Scottish links and California’s famous Monterey Peninsula courses when crafting Stewart Peninsula Golf Course, an 18-hole layout touched on all sides by the waters of Lake Lewisville. Much like the conditions found at Stewart Peninsula’s high-profile muses, ever-shifting winds play a large factor in course play, challenging golfers who struggle to keep balls low or prefer to steer their carts with massive sails. The course also features two terraced par 5s—holes 9 and 18—that recall seaside holes at Harbour Town and Pebble Beach and end both 9s in dramatic fashion. Before taking to the first tee, clubbers can head to the driving range, where warm-up sessions will help prevent them from losing their balls in the abyss of Lake Lewisville or the neighboring ruptures in the fabric of space time.
Players attempt to control shots down narrow, zigzagging fairways and carefully sidestep water hazards on 9 of 18 holes as they traverse the challenging layout of Twin Wells Golf Club. The 18-hole course guides play across several branches of a winding river and alongside an elongated lake on the par-5 13th hole, which hugs the edge of the fairway for most of the hole's length. From the time golfers tee off on the 1st hole until they hole out on the 18th, the Dallas skyline stands visible in the distance, stealing the spotlight from amphibious golf carts practicing belly flops.
