Wolfdancer gets ranked among the top public courses in Texas and it was easy to see why! The name “Wolfdancer” stems from the Native Americans who occupied the land years ago. And, I thought the land was the course’s defining feature.

There is a mix of open and wooded holes, elevation changes and nice views of the area. Plus, there aren’t any homes in sight. Arthur Hills designed the course.

The Review

The front nine is highlighted by the 556 yard par-5 3rd (603 yards from the tips). It plays downhill from an elevated tee box and offers an endless view, where the sky just falls into the terrain. The sea of bunkers contrasted nicely against the green grass too! Like many holes at Wolfdancer the 3rd has a great look to it.

The back nine seemed to have a bit of everything, including a split fairway on the 18th. Much of the back nine plays on some flat land near the river – the 13th through the 18th holes. These holes are lined by pecan trees and are a relaxing way to end the round, after some difficult holes early. For reference, the white tees are 71.3/132/6314.

Before you reach that river stretch of holes, you get to play the 12th, which was my favorite hole at Wolfdancer! The 12th is a short par-3, which is 115 yards from the whites. It is a transition hole on the river bluff and it plays about a club downhill. The green is small and trust me you don’t want to miss over the back edge, as things drop off severely.

The conditions were very nice. The course was well watered and it was comforting to see plenty of green turf, compared to the burnt out look of many courses in this region during the summer! I had good lies and putts rolled well.

Final Thoughts

Wolfdancer can be a bit pricey but there are a few deals out there to be found if you are so inclined.
