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.
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.

At Spring Creek Golf Learning Center, there's a noticeable emphasis on quality. For instance, the facility keeps its turf in pristine condition, and every year, it receives a shipment of 60,000 new range balls right after they've been laid by PGA-approved chickens. Visitors can take note of this attention to detail while practicing in Spring Creek's various areas, including the 10,000-square-foot putting green and a driving range with more than 50 grass hitting stations. The center's staff, meanwhile, relies on more than a century's worth of combined experience while teaching lessons, clinics, and manning the fully stocked pro shop, complete with club-fitting services and gear from some of the industry's top manufacturers.
