Overall good, fairways could use work

The greens were in really good shape, but a few fairways had very little grass which made approach shots tough. Overall would recommend playing though.

Avery

The course is one of the best in the area. The pace of play was terrible. Even though we had an early morning tee time, there were some beginners in the groups in front of us. 2 hours and 45 minutes to play the front 9 is not acceptable. Not blaming the course but they need to marshall it a little better. The course is always in good shape and enjoyable.

Frost Delay

We didn't get to play... .Club said they tried to notify us about a frost delay that caused a 1.5-2 hour delay but contact us because there was not a phone number available due to using the GolfNow app to reserve the time. There is a spot in the app for a phone number, so they either didn't try or the GolfNow app doesn't work right. Can't blame them for a frost delay, but it would've been nice not driving all the way out there only to be told this....and lose the $40 fee for reserving on the GolfNow app. The golf shop folks offered use range balls for practice to at least help the situation.

Slow & Overpriced

Having now played it a couple times recently, the biggest problem with the experience is the pace of play & availability of the practice facilities.

I’ve never had a round under 4hr 45mins and unless you’re early to the course in the morning, getting a range spot can be difficult.

The course is in good condition and a fun one to play but the pace of play really brings down the experience. I’d expect this from a municipal course with a super low price but for the premium they charge, it’s a little ridiculous.

Poor Pace of Play

As usual, another slow round of golf. Good luck finding a spot on the range and putting green. I'm still trying to figure out how they convinced PGA of America to put this course on the top 5 list for austin. They rob you on the green fees.

Aside from all that, the course conditions were good. I'm sure it's a good value if you can play during the week.

Lot of cart path only

Even though it has not rained in a few days, 6 or 7 holes were cart path only for seemingly no reason. Course was beautiful but pace of pay was extremely slow

Be prepared for a 5 hour round

Nothing said here isn’t said below in other comments but the pace of play is one of the worst of all golf course. Teravista, a sister course isn’t great but I play these two course monthly and Teravista is always 30-1hr faster.

The marshalls just drive around but don’t actually target the source of the problem, otherwise, you’d not see countless reviews of slow play.

The conditions are generally pretty good. The cost is insane but people keep paying it so I guess it’s simple supply and demand…although, I wish they’d charge even more and space the tee times out for a better experience. 8 minute tee time spacing is absurd. When the economy pulls back if it hasn’t already, the demand will fall and they will have cut off their noses to spite their faces. Staff is friendly, the putting green is always packed, they’ve had a small putting green closed for what seems like over a year or more. The range is fine except there’s people who will get 200-300 balls under their membership benefits if free balls and literally stay in bays for hours. They bring snacks and make a whole afternoon out of it…really respectful stuff for the game and just, life in general. Like many reading this, I’ve played 100s of courses, this has to be one of the worst run in the business. Maybe someone should write a letter or tweet or make a video of their experience and send to the PGA of America as this is surely not a top 5 course for all of Austin. But, there’s only so many course around so all is containers keep playing. For the money, star ranch or forest creek or even shadow glen is a much better value…or Teravista

Greens immaculate condition

Greens are best I’ve seen all season. Fairways are good. Tee boxes good. Greens exceptional. Recommend getting in a round before Mother Nature has her say.

But deer population is out of control. 9th Hole trampled and rutted up bad. Bring a crossbow and have fun!

Pace of play is a HUGE problem

I played on 11/11/2023. I played 12 holes in 3 hours and 40 minutes. Started at 1:39 pm but didn’t get to finish because pace was very slow and it got dark. Don’t play after noon and expect to finish before sunset.

Back in good shape

The course is in very good shape. They still need a little more time for all the greens to be perfect, but they are still very good

GREAT Course

Conditions were fantastic. You could see that a handful of greens had recently healed but they were all in great shape when I played. Very challenging course for this mid-handicapper — the front nine was especially unforgiving to missed fairways — but I appreciated the test. I will absolutely be back!

Great course…but

We teed off at 9:15 on a Sunday. Admittedly, a risky time to start. We were behind a foursome that each could give Patrick Cantlay a run (a slow one) for slowest play. After taking just under 3 hours to play the front 9, we happened upon a Marshall. I asked if he thought we could get a rain check for the back nine because we couldn’t take 6 hours to play. He asked, I paraphrase “if play was so slow, why didn’t we say something?” I thought that was his job!! Didn’t he notice the empty holes in front of the foursome ahead of us? 🤦‍♂️ Fortunately, we were given rain checks. The course is in good condition and very interesting. Will definitely try again, but hope the pace of play will be better.

He also said a couple of things my wife and daughter thought a little creepy, but as I didn’t hear 5em, can’t report on them.

Treasure turned to trash

they have lost parts if not all of most greens some putting thru Sahara desert so much sand Great layout .. staff sucks... always has... as management use the " use and abuse" mentality for all employees...carts are rinky dink cheapest you can buy.... what used to be great course is now an overpriced albatross relying on past prestige to keep people coming ... a real Jewell if they invested the $$$ and changed management to more congenial attitude true shame
