Gentle Creek Golf Club – Live Where You Play

Gentle Creek – “For those who truly enjoy golf in a private and friendly environment…” This is the brand name of the Gentle Creek Golf Club in Prosper and it lives up to its motto.

The course

Designed by DA Weibring, this 7,300-yard, 18-hole course meanders through 236 acres of varied scenery that includes manicured fairways, tree-lined edges, elevation variations, and water hazards provided by a 20-acre lake. It can be enjoyed by both intermediate and expert golfers, although beginners should take advantage of the white tees to get the most out of their game. There’s a reason Gentle Creek was voted number 13 out of all 1,100 courses in the state of Texas.

Gentle Creek is especially known for the 9th hole. It may only be a par 3, but you’ll remember shooting over the big pond, waterfall and rock wall to get to the green. There are eight sets of jerseys for this one.

Another challenging par 3 faces you on the 15th hole. At 139 yards, you’ll be fighting for every one of them. Start by shooting over a huge pond, but don’t go too far or you’ll end up in the sand bunker directly behind the green. Add to this a Pecan tree lined fairway that creates a kind of wind tunnel, and it makes club selection more important. Don’t worry, the green is larger than most and will allow for some inaccuracy to the right or left.

The stately clubhouse features the Lakeside Grill restaurant with covered terrace, full-service pro shop, fitness center, men’s and women’s locker rooms, card room, and steam room. Practice facilities include putting green, chipping green with bunkers, and over an acre of grass practice tees.

Gentle Creek is a member course and offers different levels of membership:
