Very Nice Condition

Overall course in nice shape and overall very open compared to many courses I play. Traps are the major hazard and they are putting nice sand and building them up. Greens are a little thin this time of year but still run very true. Variety of tee selections make it playable for any caliber of player.

Stupid Rules regarding Carts in Parking loty

No carts permitted in parking lot is totally stupid and causes older player to carry clubs long distances. No one is their to assist and staff is useless. Stupid, and no other course in Austin would consider such BS!!!!!!

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.

Wet weather

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.

Enjoyable experience

Links style layout was fun, greens were in great shape. Great practice facilities with range, short game area and a few practice greens.

Amazing Course

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.
