Terrible

The course was terrible shape, they just over seeded and there was no warning from the club house or the website. The staff are all dicks.

One of my favorites in Austin

I've loved this course for years, it's a great layout and always in good or excellent condition. It's a great value for the money. The course has enough challenge for me as an 85-to-95 range golfer. The pace of play can be a little slow on weekends but the last two times I was there on a weekend we wrapped up in 4.5 hours or better, so fine in my book. The beverage service on the course is not great, we only saw the beverage cart once per round the last two times, on warm weekend days, so pack some fluids in your golf bag so you don't dehydrate out there.

Great for beginners

This course is still a favorite of mine. Besides water on a few holes, it’s a great course to tee it high and let it fly. If you miss the fairway, there’s a good chance you’ll be in another fairway. Great course to shoot low and or work on your swing. My only two gripes: the price and the greens. A couple years ago you could get a tee time for $40, now it’s $60 and the greens are bad. Bald spots, the greens are too long and not well maintained. The greens can be much better.

Meh, What did you expect?

Average day at the golf course. Tee to green was in pretty good shape, but the greens were in lousy shape. The greens had as much sand as the bunkers. Pace of play was surprisingly quick for a muni on Sunday afternoon, but I'm sure it was because most people already knew about the problem with the greens. We were warned before our round that our cart might not make the full round. Sure enough, it quit on us after 11 holes. The good news is we have learned to lower our expectations at Clay/Kizer.

Greens are in poor condition

Other than the greens, the course is in excellent conditions. The greens have a lot of dead spots.

Roy Kizer was fun but challenging for us duffers.

Enjoyed this short course despite its many water traps. They need to stick the water on the course or send out a drinks cart!

Greens were in terrible shape

Normally love the course but the greens were awful. I would of appreciated a heads up before I paid $50 to play on nonputtable greens.

Greens are in HORRIBLE shape

Staff has managed to lose the greens for the foreseeable future. The green at Kiizer have been great in the past, but they are a little patchy grass and mostly just sand. This isn’t simply that they have been aerated as indicated on the ap. Sadly, they are in the worst shape I have ever seen on Kizer.
