While the Stevens Park Golf Course was a secret to many for years, its great views and close proximity to downtown Dallas have become a real draw to lots of local duffers. A public golf course located in Oak Cliff’s Kessler Park, the recent re-opening boasts a redesign that was finished in 2011 and has been drawing accolades since. All eighteen holes were restored and there are 38 new sand bunkers snatching up balls now, as well as new putting surfaces and refined fairways with almost 3,000 new trees and rosebushes. The results is a leafier, more challenging and ultimately more fun course that is still open to the public. There are men, ladies, junior and senior tees as well, plus a full-service pro shop to keep hackers up to date with the latest tips, techniques and tools to make it around the course.
