Featured Golf Course Review:
Stevens Park Golf Course -- Short, Scenic Muny
Review by: Denzil Brinley This municipal golf course is located in a beautiful neighborhood just across the river from downtown Dallas. The holes are very short so most people play from the back tees. The course is completely tree lined with numerous creeks/drainage ditches so it is very easy to lose balls. It is best to play with someone with local knowledge; otherwise, you will over/under drive a lot of holes. For example, the #3 is a short dog-leg up a very steap hill. Your drive should only be about 170 yards with a 9-PW to a narrrow, elevated (60-80' above your head) green. Or take the #4 par-3. The green is at least 60' below the tee box. Depending on the wind and temperature, you will play a PW to 7 iron. There are two holes on the back-9 where you can drive the par-4 greens. However, you can easily put yourself in trouble if you aren't dead-on with your drives. I really like this unusual, scenic target-golf course.

Stevens Park Golf Course -- Classic Muny
Review by: John Meiners Stevens is only a few minutes from downtown. It's in a beautiful area and has some scenic views of Dallas. It's a classic muny and a good course to walk. There are many challenging holes and there are some very easy holes. Number 2 is a very short par 4 and is reachable from all of the tees. Number 12 is a short par 5 dog leg that is reachable in 2 but there are many well placed trees and an elevated green with a mean slope and you'll be happy if you get your 5. There are a few holes where you can hit your drive as far as you can but most take some strategy off the tee. On 17 you can hit 220 yards straight away or 140 yards to the right side of the fairway and both will leave an open short iron shot to the green... if you avoid two beautiful oaks and a wide creek on that tee shot. The par 3's are gorgeous and the two on the back are included in the 3 hardest on the back nine handicap chart. Stevens Park is a favorite, great taquitos in the snack bar too.
