it's THAT good
Where is manor and what's the story on it? I lived down in Dallas for a while and pass through TX a couple of times a year. I try to check out a new course or two every time I'm down there.
I've actually enjoyed Rockwall the few times I've played it, but I haven't played it in the summer months yet. What pisses me off about Rockwall is the lousy, lousy (read non-existent) marking of the arbitrary OB line on hole 17. There are 30 freakin' trees in the field, all of which look the same, and you are supposed to guess which ones define the OB line as depicted on the teesign. I am fine with the OB being there, just mark the OB trees with orange tape or something and tell us which ones we are supposed to play. I've played through there with several groups of people and no one seemed to have a clear idea what the intent was on that hole.
But if you want a clear winner for worst course in D/FW, I think Denton should win without contest. Of ~200 courses I've played across the country, it stands out for abysmal design, zero maintenance, miserable conditions, lack of obstacles, stagnant filth and being out in BFE to boot. Utterly despicable... I'm trying to think of any course that I hold in similar contempt, and nothing is coming to mind that competes with it.
