Keeton Park is a City of Dallas owned course located in southeast Dallas. Keeton is a somewhat challenging layout with some beautiful pecan tree-lined fairways, plenty of water hazards which comes into play on 12 holes, and it's in pretty good conditions. The front nine is tree lined for the first 6 holes, some of which are a little tight, and the back nine is very open. Both sides are flat, include a number of dog legs, and a couple fun and challenging holes.
The greens and fairways are in good but not great condition. The front nine greens are medium sized with minor undulation and the back nine are huge with some pretty big slope which can cause problems putting. The greens seemed a little fast and were somewhat difficult to read.
Certain holes put a premium on accuracy and Keeton can be as enjoyable for beginners as it is for low handicap players. Keeton is a good course for the value. For seniors, they offer an outstanding rate all week.
Rates: $0.00 to $0.00
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.
