Great layout but course is tired

This course has a great layout and a lot of potential, but like a number of other reviewers, the resort needs to let the course take 6 months off while they re-seed the tees, fairways and greens. A number of bare spots around the course, including on the greens (it looked like the resort had just put down some new seed on those areas). Bunkers were bare and we played as GUR. The price we paid for the conditions was fair -- not much different than a so-so or worse muni. Pace of play was great - the family teed off at 2 pm and finished 18 holes by 5:40.

If the resort would spend the money to redo the tees, fairways, bunkers, and greens, this could be a top-50 public course in Texas. The resort could then raise the rack rate by 40-50%. Otherwise, this course is only worth playing on a twilight or hot deal rate at best.

Very good value for your money

Even though the greens are in rough shape due to winter the layout is worth the visit. Bunkers are not being kept due to Covid so no rakes are available , the player has the option to play it as it lies or deem it GUR and play it from the nearest point of relief.

It’s ok I guess

The course lay out was okay, the course conditions were also average. Some greens needed some work and the cart paths are rugged. I don’t think I would ever pay full price to play here I’d have to catch it on hot deals.

Very disappointed

Farways had very little grass, bunkers were mud and more dirt than sand, first two greens were very sad some of the others had weed growth.
I expected a very nice course based on playing there several years ago.

I am not saying people are lying but there is no way you could ever rate this course in excellent condition

This course needs to be put to bed it is tired. Greens are horrible and that is being nice. Fairways are over grown need to be trimmed way back to let some grass grow. The people describing it as narrow are technical correct but they are narrow because of lack a maintenance. Tee boxes are ugly and hard you can break a tee trying to put it in the ground. Nothing is good looking about this course at all. I really wanted to like it and have a cool place to play on the lake. If any money was put into this course when it was purchased I don’t see where they spent it. The price to play this course is laughable really. Green overrun with crab grass, I am glad I played during the winter the mud puddles they use for water hazards look like a haven for snakes. Beware

Cancellation

We were unable to play the course as the tee time was scheduled for Thursday instead of Saturday as I had selected on the app. When we showed up they would not honor our previously paid tee times since it was through GolfNow. Tried to call GolfNow but couldn’t get in touch with a person so we had to drive all the way home. Very disappointed in GolfNow and hope that at the least we can be refunded our money since we had driven over an hour to get to the course.

Don’t waste time or money to go to this course.

This course is in horrible shape! Greens are terrible they have crab grass and in bad repair. Fairways are hard with limited grass. The course is not maintained needs a major renovation. The price they want to play is way over what this course is worth you would be better off playing a muni in the middle of no where. There really is nothing beautiful about it. The driving range is about 20 yards wide with balls to n a grey trash can but it is free. Margaritaville missed the mark with the shark fin tee markers cut out of wood that are faded and chipped it really adds to the unkept look. I could go on but I think everyone gets the picture. I drove an hour to ply because of pics and reviews don’t do it!
