Course needs work and is being worked on.

I love this course usually. Unfortunately it’s in really bad shape right now , it’s never been this bad. It’s always in very food shape anytime I go , I’ve been about 20 times in the last 12 months. Great course but I’m staying away until they fix it.

Dear rwhitton9891, we completely understand your frustration with the course conditions. Its been a freak year of weather between the 100 year freeze, the recent course flooding, and now the returning drought conditions. Additionally, this is the time of the year where the course is transitioning from ryegrass to Bermuda, and due to the inconsistent weather this spring, the ryegrass has died off before the Bermuda has had a chance to grow in. Combine that with recent affects of aerification; we'll be the first to admit the course isn't in peak shape right now. Our greens however are recovering from aerification much faster than last year, which has us all very excited! We hope to see you out again before the summers over

Bad conditions

Greens were ruined and extremely slow. Horrible maintenance work all around. For $40 sure, but at $80+ on the weekends you’re far better off taking your money elsewhere

Dear NSCHIP94, we understand your frustration with the course conditions. The course is transitioning from ryegrass to Bermuda right now, and due to the strange weather circumstances this year the rye has died out before the Bermuda has had a chance to grow in making the course appear in much worse shape than it actually is. Part of the course and range flooded a few weeks ago, and we recently aerated the greens which does not help in the short run. We hope you give us another chance when the course has had a chance to recover

Shadow glen, the best course this side of 290 in Manor

I really like this course. It is tough and not forgivable on some holes. Back 9 has elevation and blind shots; front 9 is links style with water…more or less. The greens are still recovering from the snowpocalypse, but so are most of the courses in the area. The club house is fully open. I think this is the closest thing to an open country club along with falcon head (I don’t include wolfdancer). Price point is amazing with hot deals. It was just hot, Jesus it’s hot in Austin in the summer. However, they had water jugs on the course and sand in repair jugs unlike some of the other peasant courses around.

Wonderful morning, will be back!

Had an excellent Monday morning out at ShadowGlen. The two young ladies working that morning were so friendly and welcoming, had a breakfast taco before I teed off which was well worth it! Course was green and lush, felt like I was somewhere other than Austin. Very serene on the back 9 with lovely views all throughout. Recently aerated greens were MUCH better than I expected. Overall a well kept well run course in my humble opinion

Fun course

Even though there were wet areas and some tees were slippery from the rain, I really enjoyed playing the course. The people were friendly and the price was attractive.

Thanks!!

I wanted to switch out the grip on my driver to a Golf Pride multi-compound because it was raining, and the staff had a new grip on my club in just a few minutes. Thirty minutes later, I could use the driver with the new grip and it made all the difference in the rain! I'm amazed how few courses offer this basic service anymore

Wet weather
Used cart

Wet but worth it

A little interesting with the flooding and a few of the holes being closed, but they made the best of it and were nice enough to give us a good discount on our rounds and the staff was very helpful and friendly with everything. Looking forward to seeing what this course is like when its had some time to dry out. Fairways were in surprisingly good shape though - not muddy. Greens were a bit slow obviously but course overall looks pretty quality

GREAT customer service

I love this course and the layout but it is the customer service that has me loyal. They aren't perfect, but they don't act super pompous and pretend like they are, they will ALWAYS acknowledge your issue and hear you out when pace of play gets really bad or it starts downpouring they are always good about offering rainchecks or refunds. None of that Falconhead bs.

Used every club in the bag

My friend and I played this beautiful course on Friday May 28th. We arrived early and were greated by a very friendly staff member who showed us to our buggy was able to get us out early, in fact some junior members were held back in order to let us tee off, thanks to them for kindly waiting. The course it self played very well considering the amount of rain that had fallen in the previous week and we will not hesitate to book again. Very nice bar area with outside seating overlooking the course.

All around very solid

Place is the best. My friends and I have been coming here all year, course is one of best in town in all categories, great range especially. Also they don’t require masks which seems to keep out a lot of the nervous negative and rude people . Every member or person ive met or played with here has been nice and genuine. Same thing with staff, and nothing is ever too much for them they’ll bend over backwards for you.
