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

Pace of play

I stopped after 9 holes because the pace of play was really bad. They really need marshals out there moving things along.

First Time Playing

Fun course for all levels

The course had a good pace of play and it was a great layout with some fun holes. I played the tips and my wife played the whites. We were able to “play together” because of the large difference in tee box lengths. Most of the tee boxes need work and the greens were a bit fluffy. Also there are quite a few weeds growing in the course/fairway, but there was a worker spraying the weeds as we played. I think they were letting the greens grow in after aeration. It was my first time playing this course. It seemed like a long course with quite a few longer par 4s. There were iguanas and other wildlife throughout the course. The squirrels are eating well and living their best life. There were a few blind greens which was nice and overall the bunkers were in decent shape. There was no cart service and food in the clubhouse was sparse. You had a typical choice of hamburger and hotdog that were already cooked and sitting in a food warmer. There was also no marshal, so I could see how pace of play could be affected, but we have a single play through and it was all working out well. I got a good hot deal price and for that it was worth the money. Lots of fun.

Greens condition

It would have been nice to know ahead of time that the greens where aerated and near impossible to have a smooth straight putt.

Dear Omar9594065,

Who did you book through? There is an aerification alert that pops up when booking through either our website or GolfNow, and we currently have 8 signs up in the clubhouse informing golfers of recent aerification and the discounted rates for this week.
We are sorry that you were not notified, and we hope you give us another shot in a few weeks when the course has recovered

Challenging course, yet rewarding

Had a good time playing course. First time. Friendly staff. Nice layout. Convenient driving range and putting green. Since carts don’t have screens and course yardage markers were hard to find, was impossible to know distance and layout (water, bunkers, OB, etc. Have a better idea for next time, but would have been helpful to have info provided.
