GRAPEVINE BUNKER PROJECT

Grapevine GC  has completed its Bunker project of all 47 Bunkers. Come and experience the best bunkers in the DFW area. Better Billy Bunker liner was used along with Premier White Sand (“Arkansas White”). This is the same liner and sand used at Augusta National. Come have a Master’s Bunker experience.

“This is a superior public course in terms of its facility and personnel. The City of Grapevine should be exceedingly proud of the way this facility is maintained and managed. The staff from pro shop to Mulligans to the groundspeople are the friendliest and most professional of any place I have experienced. I drive from Plano twice a week to play here. One fellow golfer quit Brookhaven CC… preferring this course and the great treatment and quality of golf he receives here. It really is a jewel. The 27 hole layout breaks up the monotony of playing the same track over and over. I hope the spirit here never changes and if Byron Nelson’s portrait and artifacts in the lobby signify his presence or prior involvement, then that explains why the experience here is so special. Cannot say enough about the superior attitudes of everyone on staff. Been playing here weekly now for 6 years. This is the first place I would bring friends from out of town to play golf in DFW, because I am certain they would be treated well and the golfing experience is the best value for the money.” Sterling F. 6/27/2016
