Located west of Austin near Lake Travis and the Pedernales River, LakeCiff Country Club features an 18-hole golf course designed by Arnold Palmer. The course opened in 2003 and is located near another Palmer-designed club, Lakeside at Barton Creek. LakeCliff winds up and down rocky Hill Country terrain and plays over 6,700 yards from the championship tees. One of the most notable aspects of the course is that it is features bent grass greens, a rarity in the Hill Country.

Under construction

This was one of my favorite courses outside of Austin in central Texas. It is an hour drive from the city and it is not cheap. I was not told the course is under construction, but still was charged the normal rate.
It was a week ago and I am still sorely dissatisfied.

Coarse under repair

I called the coarse the day before to ask how the conditions were. I was told the coarse was in excellent shape and snow issues. When we arrived we were told holes 1 and 4 were closed and to just pick any other two holes to play twice. Once we started playing we realized every bunker on the front nine were recently re dug and under repair, the greens were also recently punched and sanded. We would have never paid $150 for a coarse in this condition. And should have been told when I called the day before. We asked for a discount from the $150 and were told no. Worst catfish ever...

Thank you for the response. This course should not be on golfnow for $150 without any indication of the current condition its in. I would not expect the course to be under repair and 2 holes closed for that amount. Also, I called the day before to ask and there was no mention of the conditions.

One of the BEST tracks in central Texas!

Living in the Austin area for 11 years I had yet to venture out to Lake Cliff CC. Being semi private might have kept me from having the opportunity to play this wonderful course. After finally recovering from my 3rd back surgery this was quite the treat!
My wife joined me as a non golfer, they did not charge me for her to ride. Arriving 40 whole minutes (not my norm) my tee time was at 3:20 (twilight) but the gentleman in the pro shop welcomed me to tee off whenever I was ready! Very welcoming, beautiful layout, and BENT GRASS GREENS!!
Wonderful & serene experience!!

Great experience

Wonderful experience for my dad, my son and myself. It was my son's first round of golf and he loved it. My dad is from out of town and loved the course and said we will definitely be back. I thought the course was challenging but a lot of fun and a great time. Wonderful conditions and very friendly staff. We will definitely be back.

First time playing the course and it was a great overall experience. Fairways and Tee Boxes could use some TLC but the greens were the best I've played in Texas so far. I'll definitely be back

Be Careful booking this course on golf now

Booked with golfnow and showed up I had made a reservation a week in advance for myself and 3 customers of mine. When we showed up 8:50 in the morning the tee time was non existent as there was a member’s tournament that I can only assume had been scheduled for a month at least. The course telling me I should have gotten an email about the cancellation because they did. I received nothing in my email about the reservation not being fulfilled. The course looked great. But you want to double confirm with the course that golfnow actually has a tee time for you.

Great Shape, great Sunday.

First time I’ve played here and loved it. Greens were in great shape and fast. Not highly trafficked today at twilight. I’m a high handicap golfer so low to mid handicapper might see this different but I loved the day.

Nice layout, but lousy condition. Fairway. Bunkers not maintained. Green traps were somewhat maintained. -not great but ok. Greens were bumpy. We were expecting much better for the money. At $120 this is Extremely overpriced.

Not good

This course was disappointing for the money. Not enough grass on the fairways and greens had spots with no grass. Hard to chip because no grass around the greens in places.

great track!

Great layout and fun course, especially when the wind is up 20mph. My complaint isn't with the course but with the jerks who are either too stupid or too lazy, etc to fix their ball marks. The greens are a true gift to us in central texas but leave it to the general public to not fix their pitch marks. They are ruining the bentgrass greens and will ultimately cause Lakecliff to put in lame bermuda. PLEASE FIX YOUR BALL MARKS.
