As a visitor myself, the only course I played around there was Chase Oaks, which used to be private but now is city-owned. Green fees were around 50-60 bucks as I recall for the 18-hole Blackjack, and I thought it was a very nice course.

Definitely going to try Chase Oaks as it's close. I don't mind driving a fair bit though. I thought I might play Bear Creek in the morning and go to DFW with my camera gear in the afternoon. I googled a bunch of courses and Tenison Park looks promising as well as Firewheel. Was just looking to hear from some who actually played some of them.

I would also recommend Riverside Golf Club. It's a few miles south of Bear Creek off of 360. The course seemed to be in decent shape and was a good difficulty level for someone like me. It was pretty inexpensive, too, IIRC.
You don't get the greatest view of airplanes, but if DFW is on north flow the traffic obviously comes over your head lower than during south flow. It seems to be right around the location where some traffic intercepts the localizer for the 36s.
Do you have anything to get you on private/semi private or looking for public only courses?
Westdale Hills Golf Courses is ranked annually in the top 5 courses in Texas and has also appeared on national rankings. It's a nine hole course and not far outside Dallas in the city of Euless. If your working late and only have time for nine it's an option.
Tierra Verde Golf Course in Arlington is also a great play. Golf Digest ranks it #2 nicest public courses in Texas year to year. Green fees are affordable and it's an enjoyable walking design. With your handicap you should enjoy this golf course.
Split Rail Links and Golf Club is also a top five of mine for public play. It's about 20 miles outside Ft. Worth in Aledo, Texas.
It's a par 72 from the tips playing 7,353. If you crush a driver you will enjoy this course. It's about an hour drive from Allen, Texas. PGA of America has this course rank #1 for public play in Texas.
