Rating 73.1

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.

Hill Country Gem in Spicewood

Brought my clubs to Austin while visiting friends On Lake Travis in Spicewood. Lake cliff had good reviews, and the course did not disappoint. Very helpful pro on-site, the course was in excellent shape, and the greens fast. A lot of roll on drives due to dry conditions, same on approach to greens. Hard to back the ball up on these, or get a hard check. Great course challenges your shot making abilities, but you can score low if you are on your game. Great value, pretty course, lots of fun.

Found this .course from a Golfnow review. I would play it again in a heartbeat. Staff was professional and friendly. Course in great shape and the greens were super. Bent grass greens which I suspect is not normal for Texas. A little difficult to find but all good in the end. Play this course

Hill country golf

Found Lakecliff on GolfNow. Kind of hard to find. My gps got confused in the rural hill country but once I found it had a great time. Course originally intended to be private but now semi-private. Arnold Palmer design. This place has some great par 3’s. Greens are very good. Quick. Starting to see some condition issues, ball marks not repaired etc., that is probably due to public play. All in all a great experience. Highly recommend.

Hidden Gem!

Played Lakecliff for the first time and it will definitely won't be the last. It's a little out of the way, but well worth the effort. While not inexpensive, I found that the course earns it's premium fee with amazingly smooth and fast greens (bentgrass) and lush fairways and beautiful views. The bunkers were the only disappointment and even they were not that bad considering the amount of rain received in the last couple of weeks.
Overall, I'm somewhat shocked I'd never heard of such a nice course. I play all over the central Texas area and wish I had known about Lakecliff long ago!
