Hill Country Golf Club offers three nines, all of which sprawl across 200 scenic acres of Texas Hill Country. The terrain is provided with rolling meadows and steep hillsides dotted with tranquil lakes and ponds that come into play throughout the 27 holes. The Lakes Nine is obviously characterized by the clear blue lakes that come into play throughout the course. There are also wooded ravines and strategically placed bunkers throughout the course for even more challenges. The Oaks Nine is named for the towering oaks that blanket the course. From wooded ravines to tree-lined fairways, this nine is a demanding test of accuracy. There are strategically placed bunkers and water comes into play on a few holes. The courses, which were designed by well-known architectural firm Arthur Hill & Associates, have received praise from both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine.

Lost prestige

I’ve been to this course many times over the years. This time it really just completely lost it’s prestige of being a “resort” course. The course has not changed, the routings are the same, however; the greens are slow and rough and the fairways are not as lush as used to be. Bunkers are hard packed and not raked and smoothed out. The range is no longer provided with unlimited range ball. One would get a tiny bag of beat up range ball and that’s it.
Since I used TeeOff app and got a hot deal that saved me some money otherwise, it would be even more disappointing. The staffs are cordial but not very friendly nor helpful. The starter is more interested in chatting with friends than to inform players of their approaching tee time and get players in position to tee off.
Like I said, this place no longer has the prestige of being a “resort” course yet it continues to demand the resort course fees. This course is just a regular public course that over charges anymore.

Fun course, great layout.

Course has a great layout which makes it somewhat challenging. Elevation changes demand solid chip shots are you're going to struggle a little bit in saving par. Nice course that's well kept.

Good day but slow play

Marshall’s should really patrol the course and get slow groups to let faster players through or get a slow twosome to speed up especially when a foursome is waiting before every shot.

The greens were rolling nice, the fairways could have been maintained better and the rough was inconsistent on every hole no matter how far from the fairway we were. Sand was well maintained. Cart girl skipped us twice by going a different route, that was bad on a hot day.

Water areas are poorly maintained. These areas used to be very well kept and highlighted the beauty of this course but now the grass is overgrown near water, algae everywhere, way too muddy anywhere near those areas. There was also excessive trash right off the fairways on the lakes course.

Good course

Played here for the first time. I've been told this course its not in top notch currently. There are definitely some obstacles which make it interesting. Our golf cart was not working properly which returned at turn.
Will play again as time permits.

First/Last Time

Played this course after hearing fantastic things... course itself was beautiful and well-kept. Pretty challenging, and you will lose balls for no apparent reason.
However, they had a tournament in the morning and left the course an absolute mess. Beer cans and trash everywhere with leftover signs blocking access to the tee box on several holes. Not one employee to be found on the course to regulate play and we had a 12-year old playing at a snails pace in front of us. Also, the cart GPS had corporate sponsors ads every few minutes that wouldn’t go away and let us see our approach shots.
Having a tournament is awesome... but clean up the mess when you have afternoon tee times! And, keep the 19th hole open after 5pm if you have tee times after 3pm.
Beautiful course, but expect to be frustrated with service, availability of water/drinks or any employees.
