Spread across 200 scenic acres of rolling meadows and steep hillsides, Hill Country Golf Club offers 27 scenic holes of championship golf. Designed by renowned architectural firm Arthur Hills & Associates, Golf Digest considers it one of Texas’ best places to play. Each course covers a beautiful landscape of native oak, wildflowers, and cactus. The Lakes Nine is obviously characterized by the clear blue lakes that come into play throughout the course. There are also wooded ravines and strategically placed bunkers throughout the course for even more challenges. The Creeks Nine, named after the creeks that meander through the layout, this course demands accuracy with water coming into play on several holes and numerous strategically placed bunkers. In addition to the three nines, Hill Country Golf Club also offers a putting green and driving range.

Unfortunate

Unbelievable. Pace of play was horrible. Granted we’re experienced golfers with decent HC. After waiting behind a slow group of men on the lakes course for five holes they finally waved us through and we completed that nine. Looking forward to playing the next nine on Creek’s we were told by the starter we had a group two holes ahead. Relief. Well that didn’t last long. We caught them very quickly. Well looking in front of that group was a party of “ 6 “ !!! I couldn’t believe it. First and foremost 6 period is a huge No! On a Saturday?? Really!! It was just absolutely miserable.

Lost prestige

I’ve been to this course many times over the years. This time it really just completely lost it’s prestige of being a “resort” course. The course has not changed, the routings are the same, however; the greens are slow and rough and the fairways are not as lush as used to be. Bunkers are hard packed and not raked and smoothed out. The range is no longer provided with unlimited range ball. One would get a tiny bag of beat up range ball and that’s it.
Since I used TeeOff app and got a hot deal that saved me some money otherwise, it would be even more disappointing. The staffs are cordial but not very friendly nor helpful. The starter is more interested in chatting with friends than to inform players of their approaching tee time and get players in position to tee off.
Like I said, this place no longer has the prestige of being a “resort” course yet it continues to demand the resort course fees. This course is just a regular public course that over charges anymore.

Fun course, great layout.

Course has a great layout which makes it somewhat challenging. Elevation changes demand solid chip shots are you're going to struggle a little bit in saving par. Nice course that's well kept.

Good day but slow play

Marshall’s should really patrol the course and get slow groups to let faster players through or get a slow twosome to speed up especially when a foursome is waiting before every shot.

The greens were rolling nice, the fairways could have been maintained better and the rough was inconsistent on every hole no matter how far from the fairway we were. Sand was well maintained. Cart girl skipped us twice by going a different route, that was bad on a hot day.

Water areas are poorly maintained. These areas used to be very well kept and highlighted the beauty of this course but now the grass is overgrown near water, algae everywhere, way too muddy anywhere near those areas. There was also excessive trash right off the fairways on the lakes course.

Good course

Played here for the first time. I've been told this course its not in top notch currently. There are definitely some obstacles which make it interesting. Our golf cart was not working properly which returned at turn.
Will play again as time permits.

First/Last Time

Played this course after hearing fantastic things... course itself was beautiful and well-kept. Pretty challenging, and you will lose balls for no apparent reason.
However, they had a tournament in the morning and left the course an absolute mess. Beer cans and trash everywhere with leftover signs blocking access to the tee box on several holes. Not one employee to be found on the course to regulate play and we had a 12-year old playing at a snails pace in front of us. Also, the cart GPS had corporate sponsors ads every few minutes that wouldn’t go away and let us see our approach shots.
Having a tournament is awesome... but clean up the mess when you have afternoon tee times! And, keep the 19th hole open after 5pm if you have tee times after 3pm.
Beautiful course, but expect to be frustrated with service, availability of water/drinks or any employees.

Course in great shape

Practically had the whole course to ourselves. Friendly staff. Cart was clean, but GPS was intermittent. We played in 3 1/2 hours. Wifey bought MORE blouses because they were on sale.
