First Time Playing

No Broccoli-Good, No Water - Bad.

I had a fun first time playing here. I had read the comments about the "broccoli" grass on the greens, but thankfully that appears to be gone. Ran into a party of 8 bachelor party gus on the 2nd par 3, but I think they were done after 9 at least. Bring your own water supply to wet your towel or drink or whatever. No water coolers on the whole course. Staff was friendly.

Course is in good shape. Greens were good. We played in 4 hours.
I would recommend to anyone that you should take your own water with you. There aren’t any water coolers on the course. You have to get it at the clubhouse or from the cart girl. We saw her twice on the front nine but didn’t see her at all on the back nine.

Horrible greens, horrible staff

This course has lost their greens, horrible shape, basically pointless to put on. Super bumpy and missing grass, bad news. Also the staff inside is not friendly at all.

Avoid playing this course unless you like to put on horrible greens and watching your ball bounce all over the place while attempting to roll.

Helping greens

The greens are in bad condition with “broccoli “patches. All can help by using divot repair tools and remove 1-2 patches per green. Then level area where broccoli was uprooted. If all help we can get the course in top shape.

A Favorite, But It's Been a Tough Winter

Love to play Mo Willy, but it's been a harsh dry winter and the course has been beat down with traffic. The greens unfortunately are also suffering from outbreaks of some non-favorable "broccoli" looking stuff that impact the roll of the ball. Still, with Roy Kizer out of commission with repair work, if I'm going to play a Muni Morris Williams is my first choice!

Greens

The greens need to be improved. My putting has been sound but the bumps and damages is throwing off my game.

Not in good shape

I haven't played here since Fall of last year and this course is not in great shape compared to other courses. Tee boxes are bad due to no overseeding for winter and greens are slow and bumpy. No grass around the greens to chip, lots of muddy areas.

Great Track, Go Play It

Winds picked up as the day went along. No fault of anyone, it just made three or four holes on the back nine a lot more challenging to get through.

Back at Mo' Willy, After a Decade Away!

So, after not playing Morris Williams, a City of Austin municipal course, for just over ten years, I found a reasonable price and a convenient tee time, and decided to enjoy a nostalgic trip back into my golfing past. I made an early morning tee time on a weekday through GolfNow, and expected to be paired with others. But, when I arrived at the course, I learned that I was playing solo, which suited me. The weather was perfect, and the greens and fairways seemed to be in much better condition than I remembered from my distant past. I only encountered one foursome during the entire round, and they quickly waved me through - I finished 18 holes in 3 hours and 7 minutes, which was ideal. Why did I stay away for ten years? I'll be back soon....
