Not common of course, but this happened one round when the cows from the neighboring field decided the grass was greener on the other side. Photo submitted by GordonATX on 07/03/2013
This course is very nice. we played on a very windy day.
I booked for 2 and we started around 12:50 pm, slightly ahead of schedule. The course is defined by sand traps and water. The course was busy and as a twosome it was a relaxing round. I enjoyed the course and the play and will go there again.
The only negatives were players were not sanding on the fairway and not cleaning divots on the green.
Open fairways, beware of bunkers
It was a very rainy day, not sure if we would be able to play. Course drains fairly well, and not that many wet areas for amount of rain falling. Greens very nice and generally open fairways, but enough bunkers to require somewhat accurate drives. Easier than Forest Creek, but I like to play various courses for change of pace.
Links style layout was fun, greens were in great shape. Great practice facilities with range, short game area and a few practice greens.
I always have a good time at Star Ranch. Just a fun track. People I got matched up with were very friendly, which helped to make the round even that much more enjoyable. Keep up the good work, the course is in really good shape,
Course is always in great shape. Love the greens. Best driving range in the area.
4 not five stars
Been playing this course for years. Always immaculate. More dry/dead spots then I have seen in last. Still a Gem.
Played here for the first time on a weekend getaway to Austin. We played three courses and this one was the best, and that includes Wolfdancer. Tee to green the conditions were near perfect, and the layout is pretty good. Only negative would be all the new construction happening on parts of it, so if hitting a tee shot on a par 3 with nail guns popping and dump trucks beeping doesn’t bother you, it’s great. For the money, you can’t beat this place! I will definitely play this course again when I go back to Austin.
Star Ranch is Fantastic !!
As always this coarse is in excellent condition. I try to play here twice weekly . Greens are perfect, Fairways , always in great shape. If you want to play a great coarse, this is the place to come.
Worth your time if the price sounds good
As always, the range, chipping green, and putting green are all very adequate. Funny, I never see anyone on the flat chipping green. It's tucked off to the side wherein you just kind of forget about it until you're coming up to tee off on #1.
Overall, the course was in great shape. We've had another (normal) dry summer but they've done well at keeping everything looking good. Even with the high number of players coming out during the pandemic (because folks are 'working' from home), I found no evidence of it being over-played etc. Water -- wet -- found it once. The bunkers had nice dry, fine sand in all of them; I unfortunately found way too many of these on this particular round. If I'm being picky, I do prefer a little moisture in the sand as that's just what I seem to find elsewhere. Today, I hit one straight into the wind only to be showered with a wall of fine sand.
I'm still left wanting more yardage markings. I personally use an app for yardage and scoring. But the guys I'm playing with don't so they're always asking me for yardage as if I'm their personal caddie. This kind of interrupts my game, my concentration, and runs down my battery quicker. It would just be nice if the course had more visual clues. The 150 yard pole isn't enough. Again, I'm a fan of big yellow/blue/white/red painted stripes on the cart path. That or get GPS on the carts. Pretty sure paint would be a lot cheaper though. :)
We did have an issue while playing #2 and #3. It appears some jackhole lives in the apartments next to the #3 tee box. They think it's funny to use one of those baby bullhorns that has little siren chirps etc. They opted to do it while we putted, teed off, and hit second shots. They're going to tick off the wrong golfer someday and that wrought iron fence won't keep anyone from jumping over it for an in-your-face 'conversation.' I hope it doesn't come to that. But karma just shouldn't be tested sometimes. Anyway, I called the pro shop from the #4 tee box to report the harassment because a) I want it stopped if possible, b) I don't want other players to have to deal with it, and c) I don't want someone ending up hurt and on the news because of such jackholery. The pro shop said they'd send someone out to do what they could. Who decides to live in a decent apartment complex way out in this neck of the woods, gets a unit facing the golf course (for scenery) etc, and then decides to mess with the players? Really!? REALLY!?
Oh, and the housing construction continues .. mostly along #12 & #13. I'm sure it'll all be filled in by the next round I play here. And of course you can hear the traffic on the SH130 toll road. Sorry, just feeling slightly bummed that one of my local 'country' courses is now urban. Still, I do enjoy the layout of this course and the amenities they offer. Hopefully the all-Inclusive package (golf with buffet breakfast/lunch) comes back soon. Go away COVID-19!
