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.

Amazing what they've done with the place. I've always loved the layout but now that the course is in great condition, and they've made a lot of other improvements as well its a regular in my groups rotation

Word of advice: book as far in advance as possible. Its mid afternoon on Monday and they are already booked up until 11AM on Saturday

Dear BIGRANDYXXL,

Thanks for your review, and for noticing all of the improvements that we have made. And yes, weekend morning do fill up absurdly fast, but even if we're full early in the week and you can't find a tee time, give us a call; because we do get groups that cancel

ShadowGlen is a great course if you're looking for something on the east side of Austin.The staff does a great job keeping the course well maintained and it has a really nice layout, especially for the price.

Fun, but kicked my butt

This course was definitely more of a challenge than I expected teeing off the first hole. Moisture on the grass and greens for the first few holes made it more difficult. The rough is moderately tall grass, but it was irons only getting out of it. Shot placement is very important on this course with all of the water, OB, and a few long shots to reach the fairway off the tee.

The tee boxes were pretty terrible across the course, with one barely having any grass at all. Other than that, the course was in pretty good shape maintenance-wise.

u314161805215, due to the strange weather we have had this year, the winter ryegrass died out almost overnight, before the bermuda could grow in. The teeboxes look the way they do because we are significantly increasing the size of them so that in the future there is never any shortage of grass to tee off from

If they really took care of the grass - tee box, fairway and edges of the greens this would be a great track

$80 green fee for what?

Every tee box was a mud puddle, casual water on every hole. I kept wondering why I paid $80 to play this course. Never coming back.

Solid track

Really nice course, honestly had no idea this place existed. Great twilight rates too, well worth the slightly longer drive out when the greens roll this well. Tough but fair. We had group hit into us on back 9 which was annoying because they never asked to play through but we saw them after the round loading their clubs into a Dodge charger so can’t be too surprised at their antics.

Overall Solid Course

Me and three of my buddies played this course on a Sunday, and overall were very pleased with the course as a whole. It was sporadically raining throughout the day but was still playable, a few greens need repair (either with big bald spots around the fringes or grass that was just repaired but not fully meshed with the existing green), but the fairways, tee boxes, and bunkers were all in good condition. Would certainly play again, but was a tad expensive considering the location and quality, Avery Ranch is an equally nice course for $15 cheaper

Would like to see yardage markers on the sidewalk.

And, a black/white 150 yard pole in the fairway.

Great day @ SG. Greens rolled true, great layout. When T-boxes grow in, & if they would cut more of the wild fringes, it would be 5-Star.

Better than expected

After reading sour reviews by some persnickety players about the greens, I was skeptical. With only two greens affected, they had weathered the February freeze very well compared to all the courses I usually play at East and South of Manor. Those greens were ALL Destroyed by the freeze so hats off to the greens keepers at Shadowglen for a great job. Yes, they were slow but in a recovery phase, at least they were green. Fairways were in great shape and the areas around the greens were lush.

Great course but drop the trash booking service

Had a lovely time out at ShadowGlen. Course is a bit rough around edges in places after the crazy snowstorm and month of rain we've had but greens are rolling great! just a bit slower than normal.

Word of advice: BOOK OVER THE PHONE. Watched this online discount golf site for 15 years deteriorate and now become corrupt. Reserved for a few sundays ago only to discover the site changed the date to two days later. Spent the next two days calling, and online chat to cancel to no avail... numerous disconnections, phone messages to call during work hours only to discover they no longer service cancellations on the phone and when you try to use chat, they want information you cannot access while mobile... all purposeful to keep your money corruptly
