Not worth playing, play Kizer instead

Course in bad shape, fairways had hardly any grass, even used a tee in some places because i was sick of hitting off tin pan lies. Lots of muddy areas, annoying and hole 13 was shut done due to irrigation work. Only thing good about the course was the greens but the rest was not good.

I recommend playing Kizer instead, night and day difference between the 2 courses which is odd since i assume they use the same maintenance crew.

Make sure irrigation construction is complete

greens were in great shape. Fairways were in descent shape for this time of year. Was unable to play two holes due to ongoing construction/replacement of pipes for irrigation system. Would recommend asking if they have completed the construction before playing. Hopefully it will make the course better/greener later during the summer months.

Nice hidden Jem

The course was very well kept. Greens were slow. Hole #9 was in repair and could not play it. Fairways were in great shape except for hole #1. The golf pro was not friendly and acted like he was doing you a favor by letting you play. I'll pay this one again in spite of unfriendly staff.

Rain Delay

Hi,

I had a tee time for noon with 3 members. We paid on Golfnow and it unfortunately was storming during our tee time. We only got thru 5 holes. I talked to Tim at jimmy Clay Golf Course and he said GolfNow could provide a refund or rain check on my account. Please let me know if you need any other information. Thank you.

Jimmy Clay - Pleasantly Surprised

Since I live in Round Rock, I rarely get out south to play, and when I do I usually play Roy Kizer. However, I saw a good deal on GolfNow, and decided to play Jimmy Clay. It has been about 4 years since I last played Clay, and was impressed with the overall course conditions. Fairways were decent, and greens were in good condition (although a little slow). Not many people out on a Thursday, so the pace of play was fine. Will definitely go back.

Solid value

Been playing this course and its next door neighbor (KIzer) for years. Masks required in and around the clubhouse, you know the drill. Course was in great shape due to recent heavy rains. Fairways very good. Greens rolled true albeit a bit slow. Finished my round in about 4 hours. No drinking water on the course so be ready to bring your own. I prefer to walk and this course definitely fits the bill.

In great shape after lockdown

I haven’t played Jimmy Clay in a couple years, but it is in great shape right now. The fairways are beautiful. Some of the tee boxes are a little hard, and the greens roll pretty slow, but true. Definitely a good golfing experience for the relatively low price.
