Sherrill Park #2 was redone around 2000 and from my perspective they took some of the challenge and fun out of the course. For a city owned course Sherrill Park is usually in pretty good condition, a very good value, and well worth playing. The fairways are in above average condition, have some water running along the side, a couple criss-crossing creeks, and some are narrow and tree lined. The few bunkers are strategically placed -- try to avoid them because the sand is not the softest. I have always liked this side more that #1 because it seems to be more challenging and has more variety. However, most people seem to prefer #1 and it always gets good ratings. You should have a good time playing either course.
Rates: $14.00 to $28.00
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.
