Wolfie!

My fav in town. With that said..price is too high right now. For the money I expect the bunkers to be top notch and I expect a good Marshall to keep play moving. The course is so pristine so to see such horrible bunkers makes no sense. As one the most expensive courses in the Austin area (public) the bunkers are unacceptable for the price. No Marshall on a busy Sunday. As a single I was stuck behind a 4 some with kids coming out of 3 carts. The 3 adults played several shots a piece with no consideration for how long they took. The kids came out randomly to hit balls too further delaying play. Never kind enough to let me through after waiting behind them for 4 holes each and every single shot. Each shot was a 10-15 mins wait as they could care less that I was behind them. At one point, one of the guys at a tee box said he would let me through but because there was a group in front of them he wouldn’t let us through. But by the following hole the group in front of them was a hole ahead! Been playing for 30 years and never had a group play so slow without an ounce of consideration. Wolfie for as much as y’all charge I expect a Marshall. Love you guys but you’re not cheap. No wiggle room for loss of value .

Best Tough Course in Town

It’s gorgeous, But akin to that “fem fatale”, just when you think you’re in, heart break awaits. Fair for sure. Well kept. I don’t want to say too many great things, then I’ll NEVER get a tee time. It’s a must play. A bit pricey, but you won’t regret the treat to yourselves.

Pace of Play

First I would like to say this course looks great.It has just rained and the fairways were niceI and the greens were in pretty good shape. On the other hand, I know it is a resort style golf course, but the pace of play was not pleasant. The group in front of my group were not keeping up and there was no Marshall to help move them along. If you book a late afternoon tee time you will be there for a while.

Back open and poa problems are gone

Wolfdancer was one of the local Austin-area courses most affected by COVID-19. Because of its association with the Hyatt Regency Hotel, they closed thru June 1 while other area courses had a busy May. The closure however appears to have allowed them to clean up some of the poa outbreaks they've had around some greens. The conditions were about as good as I've seen it there, save for some neglected traps. Greens rolled really nicely and fairways were plush. You could take your own cart if you wanted and pace was good despite being pretty busy. Appreciated the bottles of water and the water jugs had cold water as well, which was surprising. Wolfdancer is always a great place to measure your game in the Austin area.

Accessible Golden Gem

Just a beautiful course and always a pleasure to play. Was in the best shape I have seen it and incredibly lush and pure fairways. Not overly crowded and just a beauty set in the hills. Highly recommend if you haven’t made the trip out from Austin.

Lone Wolf(dancer)

I've played Wolfdancer several times, most recently just a few days ago. The last time I was out there the greens were in pretty rough shape, but I am happy to report they are looking good now. The whole course was in top shape.

This course is a beast. Choose your tee box carefully or you'll struggle to reach a few of the par 4s in two (looking at you 16...).

As you'd expect for Hill Country golf, there are several elevation changes and lots of undulation. I think Wolfdancer uses that to enhance the experience better than most courses. The terrain is used as often to make a shot easier as it is to punish a bad shot... and sometimes both. For example on the dowhill tee shot of #3, any relatively straight drive has a chance to catch the hill and roll out quite a bit, but drift too far right and you fall off the cliff into trouble. On #9, you have to hit a right to left tee shot (which isn't easy for a lot of people) and the terrain helps shape your drive that way even if you miss a little right.

Still, this course is not easy off the tee or anywhere really. Shotmaking is at a premium because the trees get pretty cozy on several shots.

One of my favorite things about this course is that there is a lot of variety. You don't have to hit driver off every tee. Your approach shots will cover a large portion of your bag.

My only negative comment would be the pace of play has not been great most times I've played. This weekend my round was 4hr 45minutes! Several holes had 4 groups on them. The routing doesn't help here as you have multiple combos of par 3/short par 4/par 5 where people are waiting to reach the green (often optimistically).

It appears COVID has had some impact on the practice facilities as the short game area was overgrown, but in general, there are good practice areas. If you factor in the rest of the resort, you really can't lose. Few things are better than a sweaty afternoon of awesome Hill Country golf followed by a beer and a few hours in the lazy river.

Definitely recommend the whole Lost Pines experience if you can, but Wolfdancer alone is worth the drive.

Beautiful get away course

Challenging course hidden in beautiful hill country...greens were fast and tricky to read. I didn't notice a single home while on the course...I'm so used to seeing homes on courses that I was really impressed that we were playing "in the woods". This course demands that pay attention to course management. Had a great time playing it. I did not avail myself of any local ammenties due to covid crap.

Love Playing the Wolf

I understand the course has been down due to Covid-19,. But it is now back open with water coolers on course and sand on the carts. The halfway house is still down, So load up before you go out. The course is in excellent condition except the greens (which are good) are a little slow for my taste. Still some bunker work could be done but I am being picky here. Staff was friendly and pace for a Thursday afternoon was a four hr round. Thx Wolfdancer staff for an enjoyable day.

Interesting and somewhat challenging course a short drive from Austin

First time playing Wolfdancer golf club. Very professionally run and could only praise the efficiency of the staff whom were also very polite. Course was a lot of fun to play and certainly had its challenges. Course was in relatively good shape considering it was still early in the season.

Only negative which is not acceptable was the slow pace of golf. It took and 2 hours to plan the front side on a relatively quit day starting at 11:40 am but slowed to a SNAILS PACE on the backside taking 2 hours and 40 minutes. Mentioned the slow pace of play at the turn which was reported to the pro shop and nothing was done. Not having a Marshall to speed up play or have someone to step in for him is a major flaw and really disappointing.

Great layout.

Course was in pretty good shape for this time of year but there are definitely greens around the Austin area which are in plenty better shape for around the same price tag. Not one cart girl all day on the course which was surprising. Fairways are probably a 7 outta 10 right now with some uneven tee-boxes.

Wolfdancer

Great course with very fast greens. Range balls provided, along with bottled water. The course also gave players a Wolfdancer bag tag which they engraved with my name for free. First class facility.
My only concern was the "course ambassador" allowed a 6some in front of my twosome which did slow play up a bit.

Slow, Slow, Slow!!!

4 hours 58 minutes to complete 18 holes. It is simply absurd. The group in front of us had two holes (at least) open in front of them for the entire back nine. No marshal? Really?
Also - this is a resort course. There were at least three pin placements that were just ridiculous. What's the point of placing a pin 8 paces on at the bottom of a downgrain slope? You could read the ProV-1 on my playing partner's ball as it trickled along the edge on the cup only to roll out all the way past the flag and off the green. Silly.
