Beautiful day!

First 9 was slow going....2 small kids (6 & 10ish) with their father & another adult just learning to play & only 1 set of clubs between them really slowed things up in front of us. They dropped out after 9 which really sped things up. They were very nice but could have picked a less busy day to teach their kids. The course is starting to green up after the snow and ice. Management did a nice job of cleaning up tree debris after the storms. Everyone in clubhouse always sooo nice. It’s a great little course.

Point Venture

It’s always fun to play this little course. The staff is always sooo nice & helpful. The greens are fast, the fairway a bit bare this time of year, & pace of play is pretty good. It’s a good value for the money.

This course was okay for the price

Greens and fairways need to be grown out some more. A couple of the greens need replaced . Wildlife was abundant around the course,

My experience

It was a great day to play golf and I loved seeing all the deer on the course , I invited two other buddies to play with me and they had to pay twice as much because they didn’t do it online . And I was ok with that UNTIL we found out AFTER getting there that there was a tournament and we had to follow the last people in the tournament playing two balls a piece . It took us 5 hours to play 18 holes. Other then that it was awesome. I would very much like to play again but this time a heads up if anything surprising. Very friendly Janice in the pro shop Thank you guys so much!

Point Venture comes through as usual

I hadn’t been out to play here in a couple years, but I knew from experience what to expect from this gem of a facility. The greens are what separate Point Venture from other affordable, open to the public venues in and around Austin. Despite it ‘only’ being a 9 hole course (personally I’d rather have 9 thoughtfully, well laid out holes to play than 18 indifferent ones), and an hours drive from my house, I still love making the beautiful drive out to Point Venture, knowing that I’m about to enjoy as an ‘away from it all’ peaceful and leisurely round of golf one can hope to find in the greater Austin area.

And the greens are ALWAYS challenging and fair, and occasional LIGHTNING FAST

Enjoyable round of golf

We hadn’t played Point Venture in a couple of years, and was very pleased to see all the updates with the clubhouse. Staff and members we talked to were all very friendly!
