The pace of play was atrocious!!! The round took close to 5 hours and we had to wait 10 plus minutes on each tee box. Didn't see one marshal during our 5 hour round. Shadow Glen is becoming teravista with the pace of play. I was playing Shadow Glen around 2 times a month but after the last two rounds taking this long i will probably start looking elsewhere to play. Such a shame because this was one of the better courses around Austin.

Simple math tells me that if you did wait 10 minutes on each tee box then it only took you 2 hours to play golf.

Price does not match course conditions. I would come back here, but only if conditions significantly improve

Great layout. Greens and fairways need some love

Amazing layout. I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed the way this course played from a layout perspective.

But, it took 3 hours to play the back 9. That’s not my biggest frustration though

The fairways looked like rough. They were LONG. Like, your ball wouldn’t roll if you hit a good drive long. And the greens weren’t in great shape.

I’m definitely coming back, but I hope they mow the fairways next time

A little pricey

Played here for 8 years, love the staff and the course layout. Will return, but for beginning of season golf with the greens having weeds, $80 seems steep. Good news is the course and greens aren’t dried out.

More perks for the money

For the high fee they charge they need more perks. There are no restrooms on course, no GPS in carts and serious lack of yardage markers, and course could be in better shape.

OVERGROWN

Tee box's are over grown with grass ans so are the fairway's. This is a problem as the grass is very sticky and grabs the clubs. It's been like this for at least 2 weeks now if not longer.
Greens are in great condition and roll very nicely.

Course Conditions, Windy.

Course Conditions were great. Holes challenging with tricky green speeds (not as fast as they look). I got to practice my low, straight punch shots through the wind from the tee box and longer irons on approach shots.

Shadust Glen

Way way overhyped. I feel taken advantage of after paying $125 for a round, large bucket, two beers and a hot dog. Tee boxes are torn up there are weeds and trash everywhere once you get off the fairways, no yardage markers, and No marshalls. If I was having my bachelor party this place would be Perfect

Drew, sorry that you did not have a great experience. We had a couple of events that day which slowed down things down and pulled some employees away from their normal positions. The weeds have been treated and we expect a smooth transition into Spring. I would love to have you out again in a couple weeks. Please email me at kirk@shadowglengolf.com

Bad golfers

Played on a Friday week of SXSW course was in great shape. Had no problem with the price simply because all the fairways and tee boxes had real green grass. The course had some groups playing in front of me that simply shouldn’t of been on the course. The staff handled it pretty well. It’s a shame that this group throws a fit and complains about unprofessional staff members when that group does not respect the course and their policy’s. I had to hop on and defend this great course and staff.
