  • This is one of my favorite facilities to practice my golf game and then take it to the course. I really enjoy going to the practice facility to work on my irons, and short game. The practice facility ...  read more »
  • This is a great tract. If you want to experience what it may be like to play the old courses across the pond but without all the expenses, play this course. You'll have to wind off of Lake Lewisville....  read more »
  • The Tribute is a nice layout on Lake Lewisville that takes advantage of the strong winds off of the lake to simulate the feel of true Scottish Links. The holes pay tribute to holes like St. Andrews, R...  read more »
  • This was about our 4th year in a row playing this course in August, it has been part of our fantasy football draft day ritual. This course has always been in impeccable shape with the best greens (bent grass) in the area. Complete disappointment is the only way I can describe this course today. I'm not sure how a course can go downhill so fast in one year, but it did. The green on hole #1 is a complete disaster. It has divots all over it, mixed with sand, dirt and is just a complete mess. Forget trying to make a read, just pick up your ball and call it good. Some of the greens on the later holes were not as bad, but the greens are the worst that I have ever seen. I should have known, that when I received a coupon e-mail to play for $49.99, that something was amiss. They used to always play the bag pipes when we pulled up to the course. Totally a unique thing that only The Tribute did, well those are gone now too. I felt it was part of an experience when you played that course, but not anymore. A couple of changes inside, which did absolutely nothing for the clubhouse, they switched where the restaurant and pro shop used to be and took away the breakfast menu. They do however have crappy breakfast tacos now that they give away. We will be now looking for a new course to play next year, so sad.
  • I have wanted to play this course for a long time. I guess the British Open got me wanting to play the links style course. Greens and fairways were immaculate. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Club house knew it was my first time there and gave some very helpful tips. Played on a Sunday, the only real complaint was it was packed. But it was the weekend and a popular course. Will definitely be back.
  • I am dearly sorry to have to post this review, because I have never had to post a bad review for a previous company that I was associated with. The Tribute golf course should not be holding any golf tournaments if they are unable to fulfill their duties by properly paying their employees. This is the first company that I have worked for where I have had to fight for my pay every single pay period. I have never had an issue with being paid properly at any other place of service I worked at. It has been three months since I was supposed to receive my final pay check, which I was ignored by management several times. When I finally had to bring up contacting the DOL Wage and Hour Division, I was told my check was lost. What company doesn't have enough courtesy or enough money to pay their employees a check which is probably for less then a $100? This goes against all my morals by posting this review, but I do not want a future employee to go through the same thing I had to. When you are being paid less then minimum wage, you shouldn't have to be asking your manager several times for credit card tips that you earned. I also had to send all documentation of when I worked and how many hours, to even get my credit card tips. There were no pay stubs or printed off hours sheets, so luckily I had wrote them down. I was also told every day that the general manager thought I couldn't preform my job correctly. I was a bartender here, but I had no previous experience in being a bartender. The bartenders are not trained to make any drinks, but criticized by management for not being fully confident in preforming their job.I paid $600 out of pocket to go to bartending school for this company, but was left fighting every time for my earned pay. I not only quit because of having to fight for pay, but it is a hostile environment. Not only did the general manager not have any faith in me doing my job, but he didn't want me there to begin with. When I quit I ended up getting multiple calls from the general manager and my manager, which tells me I was able to do my job correctly. The employees are very hostile, especially on of the chefs, who yelled at me for every little thing I did wrong. All of the tips are shared between some of the employees, which leaves a lot of arguing and bitterness. When I mad $300 in tips in five hours I wasn't complaining about having to share my tips, but a lot of the girls are not happy to share. Besides what I had went through here are some things customers have complained to me about. If you plan to have an event at The Tribute, you might never find your event coordinator. The beer on tap has been said by customers that it tastes dirty. If you come in the morning to the bar you will probably have trouble finding your bartender. There are coyotes that will pop out on the field, which is a safety concern. The prices for the food and beverages are outrageously expensive. There is not enough service on the golf course, so be ready to be dehydrated. You will be rushed out on the golf course, because the time frame for golfers is not adequately timed correctly. If you have free beer tickets, you can only get two types of beer; coors light or bud light. There is a lot wrong here.
  • Our HS held a sports banquet at The Tribute. The food was fantastic (especially the chicken), the views were breathtaking, and the service was spot on. We had a buffet which made space a little tight. Great experience, looking forward to another event there!
  • Great place for events with nice view of greens. The buffet had great choices if good, but refilling and busing service was slow. Decor and atmosphere is cozy.
