Situated four miles south west of downtown Dallas, Stevens Park Golf Course was originally designed in 1924 by Jack Burke Senior, club professional at River Oaks Country Club in Houston and runner-up at the 1920 U.S. Open.
Colligan Golf Design breathed new life into Stevens Park in 2011, when twelve holes were rerouted, extra yardage added, tees, fairways, bunkers and greens were renovated and 900 new trees were planted.
A feature hole at Stevens Park is the 413-yard par four 15th which, from an elevated tee, there is perhaps the best view of “Big D” to be found in the city.
Color me surprised, this course is FUN! Sure its a little short but from the back tees you will have more than your fair share of carries over creeks, the greens are square (but in great shape, which isn't often said about munis) and the course has enough strategically placed trees to make you start wondering whether the devil exists.
If I lived in Dallas, this would be a course I played a lot and you should too if you are in DFW.
