We understand that Z Boaz Golf Course was closed and converted into a 138 acre community park!!!
Z Boaz is a municipal course owned by the city of Ft Worth and was built in 1930. When we played in May 2007 the course had been recently aerated and it was hard to really judge the true condition of the greens and fairways. Based on what we saw fairways would normally be in below average condition.
Z Boaz is pretty open and there are not a lot of hazards to cause you much trouble. The only traps were on each side of the greens and easy to avoid. The greens were of average size with minor slope and not that difficult to read.
Fairways are tree-lined, somewhat tight and the majority of the holes are straight. In most cases you can see the flag from the tee box. So if you can hit it straight you will have no problem scoring well on this short par 70 course. The clubhouse, course and equipment are showing signs of age and all could use an upgrade.
Rates: $25.00 to $31.00
Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
