Solid

Having played all the muni, premium public and a large number of the private courses around the Austin area, Shadowglen initially held a love hate relationship with me. It's tough and when the wind is blowing in Manor it's even harder. I have played this course extensively over the last 2 years and can quite happily say I think it's one of the best values for money in Austin for a round of golf. 15 minutes from downtown and they are always trying to improve the experience there. Great selection of draft beers

Good Course

Course is challenging and in decent condition.
Pace of play was slower than expected for an early morning start.
Enjoyable round!

Solid, all around

All in all a solid track. Layout was fun and challenging, and I definitely want to play it again. Greens better and roll more consistent than any in area I've played

Forgot to mow

Love this course the greens were perfect. The rough and tee boxes didn't match the quality of the greens. most of the tee boxes were trash either not mowed or divots and clumps of grass. The rough around the greens and in the fairway needs immediate attention. it's way overgrown and it wasn't wet at all, so it should be mowed.
I still love the course I hope next time the conditions are better.

Steppin it up

Moved back to Austin after a few years away and was absolutely stunned by the changes they've made here.. ShadowGlen is legit a premium public golf course again, The pro shop is hardly recognizable from last time I was there, they've tastefully updated the bar and patio and I think maybe new flooring inside? Had pleasant interactions with all the staff, and the golf course was just stunning this morning. Amazing to see this place start to reach its potential

SHADOWGLEN

I think by this point it’s widely known that this is a top public course in Austin and one of my favorite courses in Austin: the layout is fun, conditions are good, the range is great, very affordable if you play at right times - but staff really sets them apart I love the girls they have working there so sweet and friendly. Would get a membership in a heartbeat if I lived closer
