Friendly course and friendly staff!

With all the rain the course was in great shape. Greens were very nice and rolled true.
Micheal (manager, course pro) was very helpful and is always knowledgeable about the course and greens.
The course layout is challenging but yet score worthy if your striking the ball well.
Thumbs up for a good day out with friends.

Soggy but playable

With all the rain, course was wet and cart path only rules. Lost a few balls just off fairway because they can't mow at the moment. But enough dry (less wet) areas to move your ball and have descent shots.
Once it dries, course should be pretty good condition.
And greens were in nice shape overall even with all the rain.

Muddy and needs Attention

My wife and I were excited to play this course based on previous reviews and the posted pictures from the website and Facebook. First I’d like to say I liked the layout and it was challenging. Unfortunately it had rained hard the day before and there was standing water on many of the holes and soft ground and the rest of it. Because of the conditions it was cart path only, some of the hole had water so high alternate routes were made so you could get to each hole. The greens were not in great shape and needs attention, many bald spots which made putting accurately difficult. Over all not the best experience.

Decent course for the price

Course does not have a very difficult layout. Very straight and very short. Not a bad course for the price however. Would definitely give it a shot if you are local to the Austin area and are somewhat new to golf. Give the white tees a go and enjoy your round.

Nice course

This course is a nice layout. It’s a bit more challenging after rain. The course lies in low areas of rain runoff. It takes at least three to four days to dry all of the way out. Small areas of standing water on a few of the holes still.
