Lago vista golf course

Friendly staff and a good value. The layout was challenging but not extremely hard. The greens are in very bad shape and that is the reason I would not recommend this course at this time. We’ll try again in the spring.

Wonderful Course and Excellent Staff

I have not been met by friendlier and more accommodating staff at a golf course in my entire life. The staff here at Lago Vista Country Club are simply the best. The course if coming to a place of being fantastic. It is better every time I play. Lago Vista has truly become my favorite golf course of all time.

Gone down hill

I’ve played this course for 15 years. It is in the worst condition I’ve seen in the entire 15 years. I understand the challenge of the record freeze in Feb., but all of the area experienced these same weather conditions, and most currently have much better green conditions.

The grounds keeping management has gone down hill irregardless of the weather conditions. I played with a group in July after heavy rains two weeks previous, but no rain in the last seven days. The fairways were dry but un-mowed with , 4-6” deep grass approaching the greens. Besides staying in the fairway
, each in our party lost 8-12 balls in the middle of the fairway often a wedge shot from the greens.

We had planned on playing 3 days in a row but cancelled and went to Cedar Park, where we found a well groomed course with minimal green damage.

It’s so sad to see such a lovely and fun course go downhill so significantly.

Extremely Overpriced for Condition

Layout decent. If it’s your first time playing, have pro shop write out the directions for the turn, as you will get lost. Course as a whole was in awful shape. Many greens seem to have bunkers, some fairways not mowed, maintenance crew was seen just cruising around instead of taking care of the course. Members don’t seem to care about pace of play, nor do the rangers. The carts were also in extremely rough shape. Our cart’s front wheels were so bowed we thought one of the wheels was going to pop off. Beers are cold, hot dogs were good from the cart girl, but A’s seems to be the case with this course, extremely overpriced. Buyer beware.

greens

I have lived here for 15 years and the amount of money this course has dropped into repairing the greens I don't know where it went. It is a joke and the greens keeper has no clue on how to maintain a course nor does he need to be working for a golf course . The greens that were repaired ae already destroyed. The city paid for nothing because they are the same as before if not worse. The staff are wonderful and always professional but please hire someone who can maintain it because it is a beautiful course

Sad bu true, almost all greens had a bunker on them.

All tee boxes where good. Most fairways were good. But almost all greens had some patch or areas with no grass and had sand. So I call it bunkers on the the greens. If the greens where maintained this could be a great golf course.

The course is poorly maintained

I have never played on a worse course. Definitely over priced. Every green has major damage. No fringe, chopped up with weeds and sand. Tee boxes are very chopped up. Hard to tell the difference from the fairways and rough. If you want to waste your money like I did, go ahead and get a tee time. If you can get a tee time somewhere else, it would be money and time well spent! Good luck!!!

Lago vista golf

This is great course layout in the hill country of Austin area. Has a great potential to be a very busy and profitable golf course. Looks like they need money. Mowing was behind. Fire ants mounds were everywhere and the greens need a lot of work. Lost my ball in the middle of the fairway more than once.. there were three of us and enjoyed the day here but the best time was in the clubhouse with some good beer and some great sandwiches served by a lovely young lady..

Terrible

I played at Lago on 9/18/21 and the course was horrible. There were 3 holes with temporary greens in the fairways, all the greens are trashed, everything else is brown and the worst part is they still charged $46 with no mention of a discount.. The course wasn’t even worth a dollar a hole in that condition. I hope they can turn it around, I I like the layout of the course and have played there a bunch over the years. But in the current condition, I won’t even consider going back for at least a year.

WAIT! DON'T GO PLAY IT, YET!!!!

The course is in terrible shape. The fairways grass in some areas are up to 3" long making it difficult to find your ball in the fairway, never mind the ones that are off the fairways in "rough". I love this course, and have played it many times, but will not be doing so until they put real efforts into making the course playable. The 3 temp greens are a joke; don't bother to putt, use a wedge. The other greens are in terrible shape; mud spots, sand pits and missing parts on the putting surface.

I do not recommend playing it until the course is playable, again.

Staff was very friendly and the cost was reasonable. The course conditions were poor. They had 3 temp holes that you couldn't putt on. Had to use my wedge instead of putter. The other greens weren't much better. The course was pretty open so I was hitting in the fairway most 9f the day but lost several balls because the need to cut their grass. Pace of play was pretty good for a Saturday with no Marshall.
