Great day

Course was in great shape, the best shape I’ve seen of any public course since the freeze! Fairways great. No dirt or mud on the greens. They rolled nice, but were slower than normal. But at least it was a green! People complain about slow play? Make an earlier tee time. This not a beginners course. It plays long and the greens are difficult. We played in less than 3 1/2 hours. Staff was great.
I would play here all the time but it’s pricey, but worth it.
***The range/practice facilities are not open from Tues 4pm until Wed 10am for weekly maintenance. I like to hit a bucket and putt but couldn’t as I had an early AM Wednesday tee time. A little disappointed because it doesn’t say on Golfnow, but it does say on their website. Will be back!

Excellent course with plenty of challenges in great condition. Careful with how you read the greens on this course as some proved to be an optical illusion. The ball would roll in ways that seemed to defy gravity!

Great course, painfully long round, cart fee issue

I was told that I had to share a cart, or pay a $20 fee on top of the cost of my 18 (which includes a half-cart) - this not reasonable. Course was in great shape, except the sand traps continue to be in unacceptable condition. The layout is great. There were no marshals driving the course, so it took us 4:40 to play 18 behind multiple unacceptably slow foursomes - way too long. The starter was outstanding. Inside staff was less than friendly. Cart person was great.

Need marshals

As with most public courses these days, playing on a nice weekend is likely going to take a while. I can understand 4.5 hours, but a 5 hour round is unacceptable. As well, there was not a marshal in sight who could have helped matters. There's always that one group is that is over a hole behind and they were in front of us. They were clearly unaware on how to keep a pace of play which is reasonable (poor cart placement, tons of practice swings, etc.) Had there been a marshal ANYWHERE, they could have at least tried to keep the pace of play reasonable.

Also, it's time to put rakes back in the bunkers. Sister courses like Avery Ranch, now have them. What's the hold up with Falconhead?

Range is also poorly kept. Mats are old and it feels like you are on top of the person next to you.

This course used to be one of the premier public courses in Austin. It's now middle of the pack.

Great course

The course was in great condition considering the winter in TX this year. Greens were a bit slow. Biggest complaint was that there was no sand in the bunkers, just some gravel to tear up your wedges.

Falconhead Review

Course is still under diress since Polar Vortex in mid-Feb. Practice range was a little disappointing with worn mats stacked so closely together. Practice area for chipping & putting were both nicely maintained. Course itself was in satisfactory shape - lot of bear lies, poor tee boxes and inconsistent greens. Again, I attribute this to the weather in February. Staff was very friendly.

First time playing here and will def be back... finally decided to splurge a little bit and was worth every penny. I started golf last year and def a bogey / double bogey player. Managed to leave with one par, even for someone of my skill level it was def forgiving and playable for all skill levels...fairways were amazing and green all around. Got paired up with 3 older guys and we had a ball. 5 stars great time, go you won’t regret it!

Great experience.

We tees off early and completed our round in 3 hours and 15 minutes. The greens were in fantastic shape, as were the traps and most of the tee boxes. We filled a number of fairway divots that others had overlooked. The snack bar wasn’t open when teed off, but opened by the time we made the turn. Excellent breakfast tacos.
We will be back soon.

Course was in immaculate condition

I’ve played here a lot in the last 13 years and the course conditions are as good as ever. Pace of play could’ve been better, our round took almost 5 hours and we saw Marshall once. But besides that it was a wonderful day and great round of golf.
