Cool course terrible management

Could be a really really nice course if they kept it in shape. The views are awesome but there is barely a fairway on most holes because they don’t cut or maintain the grass

Great value- friendly staff

Our group played here twice within 7 days. The first time we played the course was very dry aligned with an obvious drought in the area. Our second trip through on Friday had saturated conditions making the play very different. The greens need chemical intervention to stem crab grass intrusion. Rugged course. Friendly staff. Good food at the turn. No beverage cart. Overall good value both times.

So much potential

This course has a very cool layout but is a total goat track. They were the worst greens I've ever played on and most of the Fairway grass isn't even Golf Course grass. Once I got done with the front nine three people that live out there jumped in front of me and I had to wait 15 minutes to tee off on the 10th tee. I don't blame the golf course so much for that but it was still poor golf etiquette from people that live on a golf course.

Course conditions

This course is currently in terrible shape. The greens are awful and the fairways are pretty poor. I used to play this course years ago and it was great, but those days are in the past.

Could Be a Gem

I played this course 15 years ago and it was immaculate. Since then the property has really gone downhill. The greens are a combination of mud, ant mounds, dead spots, and dead grass. It is virtually impossible to put on 14 of the 18 greens.

We were told the new owner is going to spend a lot of money fixing it up and that would be wonderful because this could be a gem of Central Texas. The holes wind through the forest with the Colorado river on about six or seven of the holes and it’s just beautiful. It just needs some tender loving care and money to bring it back up to playable conditions.

They could charge double what they are currently charging if they would just fix it up.

The course has a great lay out. They just need to put money into the course. The fairways were muddy, with standing water. The greens, were like putting in the rough. The course could be a great one, with the lay out. The course has elevations, which are fun, and challenging.

Not worth it

The greens had ant hills and weeds throughout. The fairways had puddles and mud everywhere. Do I need to go any further?

Need lots of work

Most greens were in terrible shape. Lots of bare spots, raised dirt piles (ants?), and where there was grass areas putts were slow.
Some fairways had lots of bare spots or holes

Terrible greens

The greens are in terrible Condition. Crab grass, bare spots, uncut greens, and not well maintained.
Fairways are decent and the course layout is great but something has to be done about the greens.

Great layout, slow greens

This course is on a wonderful piece of property - nice variety of holes and a friendly, helpful staff. However, the green quality was irregular and they were very slow.. There is no greens staff on the weekends, so they had not been mowed (I played on Sunday afternoon). I enjoyed the layout enough that I would go back during the week to give the course another try.
