Don’t play here if it’s been raining

Lately the greens have been terrible; almost unreadable. I paid $35 on a hot deal and it wasn’t even worth $20. I understand it’s a 9-hole and normally in decent shape, but it seems like it’s only gotten worse the last few times I’ve played here. Wouldn’t pay more than $20 to play here if it’s like this.

Worse course I’ve ever played.

The greens were like oil slicks, there was a big instructional group in front of us that was holding a clinic on each green, and the grass was horrible. Do not waste your time here.

Terrible Track and greens

Friendly staff. However, I wouldn’t pay more than 20 dollars to play this course again. Rough and muddy greens, the fairways play more like rough and VERY short holes. I had to play from the tips just to make the round interesting. Also cart fees? Really....?

Don't expect much

Don't expect much and it'll be all good. Waited a long time for a cart and we were late for our tee time. Greens are rough. Rest of the course is greening up. Played a quick 9.

Slow

It took 4 hours to play 9 holes, I played there because it’s usually a quick play. But per usual all the hipsters in Austin have ruined that too with their dumb foot golf. Please whoever invented that. Kill yourself. Overall the greens are trash and sandy dirt not grass. If someone took care of this place, and kicked off all the hipsters it might be fine.

The worst

Greens were like putting on a stone parking lot. No signage at any hole, except for stupid foot golf. Fairways were weedways. Charged $30 with a cart for nine holes. I expected a nice course and got crap.

Course in terrible condition

This course is a mess unfortunately. The layout is confusing (there are flags everywhere thanks to the “foot golf” holes all over the place) the greens are more like browns and have grass tufts everywhere. Really short holes as well, mostly par 3s. Decent value for 30 bucks for 9 holes, but you’ll be getting what you pay for.

Friendly Staff, Poor Course

The staff is the best thing going for this course. The driving range looked pretty decent, but when it comes to the course....it’s not a golf course. Understandable it’s late March and the grass isn’t thriving as much as it should be. But in and around the tee boxes is a ton of large broad leaf weeds. The fairways on the par 4 are poorly maintained. The tee boxes had a lot of rocks in them because the cart paths are mainly all gravel. The greens are not golf greens. Extremely disappointed as the putting greens are mainly sand that is dyed green or hard compacted dirt. There is only about 5% living bentgrass/Bermuda on the greens. It doesn’t seem like this course has much of a budget, which is unfortunate. It could be a great short course to work on iron shots. But it is so poorly maintained. The foot golf is intermingled with the actual golf which can turn dangerous, although our group did not encounter any foot golfers. I don’t live in the Austin area, but I just cannot recommend it to others.

Confusing

Greens were horrible and the disk golf course overlaying the golf holes was confusing. The property has great potential but was like playing in your yard with over rolled compressed greens but if you only have time for nine it is still golf.
