I'm assuming this has been discussed plenty, but I wanted to see if any of y'all have any experience jumping on any local to Dallas golf course ponds.
Any tips? Thank you!

Thats the problem. Chances are if youre not golfing your likely not welcomed there and likely are trespassing. Just ask maybe after hours they will allow it?

I know I have carried a rod with me when golfing and made a few casts and no one minds that but just walking on over and getting your fish on is not probably a good idea.

I snuck into golf courses to fish back in the 80's, always at night. We also actually golfed there, occasionally. I guess they were onto us, because one day one of the greens keeps whispered to us, "I hope y'all aren't eating the fish out of those ponds.". We hadn't been, even though it was mostly nice sized catfish. Whatever they used to keep the greens so green we knew made it's way into the water hazards. It was against the rules of course, but just the three of us and we never left anything behind, so I guess they kinda' "turned a blind eye". Again, though, this was some 30+ years ago.

with all the liability risk anymore they don't want you on the property unless you are playing golf . if they wanted folks to come fishing on any private property there would be signs up welcoming fishermen.

Exactly on the liability issue. I was at a pond about 4-5 years ago in the am with my fly rod. Had just landed a 4 pound bass when the first group came around on number 10. They saw me and next thing I know, here comes a golf cart. I was so far away from being in play not even the worst golfer could hit me. Pro drove up and made me leave. Told him I was a Arlington resident and he said it was 100% a liability issue since the course was owned by the city. If it was his call, I could keep on fishing.

It is what it is.
