Hidden gem on east side of Austin

Forget about Terrorvista or Forrest Creek . If you want to practice golf and live in east Austin, this is where you want to go. Great range, great pro shop, great pros. But the point is that there are 18 real holes. The fairways are treelined (some) and challenging, some reachable par 4's and 5's, the elevation changes and the water everywhere make it quite difficult. It’s 7200+ yards and you go around it in an 3 and a half hours as a solo in a buggy when its not busy during week.. It’s the best place to practice in Austin. Half hour at the range and then a quick 9 holes. For me was the best find ever!

Quality

I'll tell you what this is a fire golf course. Grass is grade A deluxe. Fairways, tee boxes, range all covered in lush green grass which is pretty great playing off of. I heard another person in my group remark it looks like the WM phoenix open the way the green fairways contrast with dormant surroundings and that's pretty accurate. Its a challenging course as advertised, you think you can outsmart it at first look but you need to be a shotmaker to break par here as in you need to miss in correct spots and drive it in correct side of fairway. It is a very fair course though I will give it that. Overall great outing hope to make it out here again soon

Nice well maintained course

I can not say enough great things about the course, staff. My interaction from the online scheduling to the friendly attitudes of the staff made the day and event memoriable. My son and his friendscould not stop talking after the 18th hole and shared with me the entire round and how beautiful and challenging it was. I would highly recoomend this course to everyone, unless it gets too popular and then I can't get the times I want--sort of selfish of me , I know.

Exciting layout

I took the advice from online review of top 10 best course to play in Austin.
Indeed, it was worth it. The fairway had green grass in this cold weather plus the excellent green w a good speed.

Awesome!

I've been playing golf for 25 years and have played more than 100 courses including Pebble Beach, Spyglass, Olympic, Pinehurst #2, PGA West, Doral. Champions, and many more extraordinary tracks.

ShadowGlen is a championship course in every way. It is a difficult course and requires a lot of shotmaking to go low but there are 5 sets of tees so anyone can enjoy this course. It's in pretty great shape all year, fairways and greens are always superb.

Staff out there works hard to provide a great experience for guests. There's a great feel out there, the staff seems happy to be there. There isn't a daily fee facility that's a better value in Austin

Foggy wet and the best training for Scotland I could get in Central Texas.

Course was good. Pace of play was slow given the conditions. Even our group was a little slower than usual. 90 degree turns. This course is very challenging because of the unknown hazards, dog legs, sharp down slope fairway sides, uneven sloping greens and unusual pin placements makes this the toughest public course I play regularly. Overall a great day in rainy weather.

Tough Course

This is a most challenging course. The tee boxes were well kept but the fairways were way to wet and it hadn't rained in weeks! there are multiple hazards with water and sand traps all over. Greens were well kept for a December day and they are situated in a number of hills and valleys. Prepare to do some climbing and walking even if you ride. Not for the weak.
