The greens are in horrible shape now but the track itself is challenging. The drought hasnt helped the course conditions. Three temporary greens and two others that need immediate repair. My wife and I played at 11:30 yesterday and were the only ones on the course- a combination of hot weather and rough course conditions. Overall, it it is good value and the staff there is incredible. We hope it survives because it is a great place to play.

Horrible greens

I understand this time of year in Texas it is difficult to keep up course conditions, but the greens were some of the worst I’ve played. There was maybe one or two greens that were actually up to par with other courses.

Please Invest in Your Greena

This place has a ton of potential but the quality/complete disregard for the greens was extremely disappointing and a deal killer for any future rounds. Told me “4-5 greens are temporary”. But failed to mention the other 14 are in complete disarray. The tee boxes weren’t even cut. The course should have more integrity to at least let guests know what they are paying for. Extremely extremely disappointing.

It’s the little things that make a huge impact on golfers and I wish someone would help LVGC realize that. I’d suggest taking the money spent on fancy new golf carts and reinvesting that into your greens.

You can’t even put on any of the 18 greens. Layout is nice and carts are brand new. Should of put that $ into the course. I’ll never be back.

Still want to love it but needs a ton of work

I have been playing this course for years. The layout is fine and can be a bit challenging on some holes. The greens are an absolute wreck. Several unplayable/temporary greens. Fairways are either a wet mess or a dry dessert. Tee boxes are uneven and overgrown or dead. There is so much potential but they have been struggling with the greens for years now. I don’t understand why they cant grow grass.

Pluses are it was only $24.50 with hot deal and juniors are free. I have.a 16 year old who plays and there is no other course that offers that kind of deal. No beer cart and no just plain hot dog so plan on bringing your own.

I really want to love this course again but it is only for the rec golfer who wants to have some fun at a cheap price.

Terrible

I’m not a great golfer but when I spend my off days to pay to golf I like when there at least appears to be effort in maintaining the course. Stood there waiting to check in for 10 minutes with no one around, the course was absolutely atrocious. The greens were worse than the dessert rough. Literally not a good patch of green grass on the “greens”.

Awful, awful condition

We couldn't believe how poor a condition this course was in. The fairways are baked and patchy, the 'greens' are even worse and completely unplayable: full of sand, dead grass and ruts.

The sad thing is, this course has great views and is really well laid out. Lots of elevation change, big uphill/downhill shots into greens and some challenging tee shots that require accuracy, not distance.

Unfortunately, this is not worth any money they're charging (not even the Groupon we got). As someone who mostly plays municipal courses, this just feels like the city of Lago Vista has given up on it. A real shame.

Would not recommend

This course is in very rough shape. The starter is also not quite the friendliest person. The greens are completely gone and have large craters in them and sand is also very prevalent on them. Some of the fairways are not mowed and some holes are bare in areas. For $45 this course is not worth the money. Save yourself the frustration and find another course to play.

Disappointed

I played this course for the first time in January of 2021. I liked the scenery. I booked the round with 3 other buddies who had never played here. I was so embarrassed with the conditions. The greens were inexcusable. Heard excuse after excuse from the pro shop, Marshall’s etc. $45 for this joke of a course . Will not be back.
