Forest Creek Home Sales - Round Rock - Market Analysis - First Quarter 2008
Forest Creek is a lovely master-planned golf course community located in east Round Rock, just minutes from Dell Computer. Having played the course a number of times with my friends, I can attest to both its beauty and its difficulty. Granted, I am not really a stellar golfer, but it is among the more challenging courses in this part of town.
