Could be a bit cheaper.

The greens were more dirt than grass. Tons of super thick grass which can hide your ball. Overall an okay course for beginners but need to be taken care of some more.

Sad how far down this course has fallwn

I hate to actually say this because I use to play this course a lot with my father when he was alive. This course has severely deteriorated . This course isn’t with almost 40 dollars to play. The staff is excellent it would be nice to see this course come back to how it use to be. I live in pflugerville so it’s close and that’s the only reason I still play it

Poor maintenance

There were fairways and greens without grass, overall the course was very dry and hard.

Nice wide open course, good for a hacker. Greens in decent shape. Paid $25 bucks with cart on Golf Now app. Definitely worth it.

Sad

I have played this course sporadically over the course of 29 years. It was never a premier course, but it was fun to play. Sadly, the course has declined to a point where I will never return. Obviously, they don't have much financial backing but there are some fundamentals that they could take care of. Such as rolling the greens. They are sparse and bumpy to the point where putting is a best guess. Lots of wash out points on the fairways and sprigs of weed grass very near to the green. Obviously there are some locals which play here and I suppose that generates enough money to keep them open. My message to the management is to have a little pride and improve your course or give it up.

Improved bunkers

Many (all?) of the sand traps have been converted to grassy bunkers, which is an improvement from what I remember. The sand traps didn’t drain well. But I wonder if at least a few sand traps could be restored.

Good Value

Bottomline, it was a great outing for a fun group of golfers. We just enjoy getting out and competing. That includes a great deal of ribbing each other and a few choice brews from the grill. The course was in decent shape, greens good but a little bumpy. You had to take note of the grain and play for it. A few holes were challenging and balls were sacrificed. Like any course, the more you play it the better you score by avoiding the hazards.

Not bad could of been better

Golf shop wasn’t very helpful when I checked in. Asked my name then said I was good to go and that was it. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out where the carts are but some more info when checking in would be cool. They could atleast act like they care that you are there. The course was alright and the greens werent terrible but this is the type of place that puts bandages on stuff instead of actually taking time and money to make the place look better. If you aren’t using a discount it’s not worth the price per round.

Fun easy course, wide open with occasional trees

Friendly staff, tees and fairways in great condition. Greens mostly all in great condition, a couple could use some work, but overall really enjoyed the round.

Lack of etiquette

Why have tee times if your just going to let people tee off wherever they want?? When you have the first tee time of the day and are a single and come to 10 with 2 foursomes in front of you it s ridiculous . Now understand was Wednesday so wasn’t crowded just a bunch of old members that the clubhouse let’s do as the please worse part Marshall on 3 different occasions was watching on the tee box as the foursome and myself were all on the tee box at the same time and not a word and no offer to allow me to play through won’t. Be back

Somewhat disappointed

Course is in an upscale neighborhood so you would expect it to be in better condition and for the price per round. Very disappointed in the condition of the course. Not well maintained with bunkers all overgrown with weeds. No rest rooms on the course and restroom in the clubhouse is just like a gas station. Carts are not washed after use, posing a health risk. Will not be playing there again anytime soon unless there are drastic changes.
