Terrible Day - 5+ hour round

Five hours and twenty minutes in 105 degrees with Rangers that tell you there is nothing they can do. WHAT? That is exactly you job, to make sure a 10:30 tee time does not have a 10 min wait on every hole.

Tee boxes were terrible, hard to find grass on many. Greens were good shape, fairways for the most part were good, but did have quite a few barren areas.

For $100 per round you would think they would take better care of the course and have Rangers that actually know the job description

@Falconhead Golf Club - My suggestions are to pay closer attention to where the tee markers are placed on the tees. Looked like they were hardly ever moved and if they were moved, only moved a few feet. Meant there were quite a few tee boxes that were torn up where the markers were, but the rest of the tee looked good. Also, pace of play was really slow. Would suggest marshalls do a better job of keeping groups within a hole of the group ahead. Those two things would have given it a 5 star review.

Great Hill Country style golf course!

Course was challenging enough for more experienced golfers and easy enough for average golfers. The greens were in great shape, but tricky due to the hill side shape of some of them. Still, the greens were fun to navigate once you got a good feel for the speed. I will definitely return. The staff is super friendly and very accomodating.

Austin semi private gem

Pleasantly surprised after playing many of the municipal courses around town because Falconhead has a great course layout with some very interesting holes and even a little water. A decent chipping area with bunker and a full driving range is always a plus.

Sloooooow Sunday

We showed up for our twilight tee time at 5 pm and there were no less than 3 other groups on the tee in front of us. It took just about 3 hours to play our 9 holes just before sunset. The tee boxes were mostly dirt but the course was nice otherwise, strange that the tees wernt in better condition. I would love to come back on a less busy day. Staff was very friendly.

Nice but slow green

The greens are well maintained but slow to me.I played the course for the first time during my trip to Austin. Played with a few locals and they don’t seem to think those are slow. My feeling is it’s ~9.

Some good looking drives were penalized due to the terrain. When it happened more than once, I got annoyed a little. I appreciate fairness of courses.

Overall, the course is relatively well maintained.

After checking in 40 minutes were left. I purchased small bucket of balls but ended up not being able to use it. It took so long to deliver carts to the customers before me that there wasn’t enough time left for me to go to driving range which is far away and requires a cart riding.

Starter was very busy delivering carts to customers and sending out players to the 1st tee. Sprinkler heads popped up and wetting people waiting for their carts. Overall, the starting of a round looked hectic and unorganized.

Over priced for pace of play and amenities

I’ve played this course a few dozen times and this time was one of the worst. This is based on the quality of the tee boxes, pace of play, and access to water.

For $100 round on a Sunday, I found it frustrating that the tee boxes were sand traps and there where others that looked much more playable. We did tee off on time, but the round took five hours and ten minutes. Lastly, for $100 round and playing in 100 degree weather, the club did not do enough to keep golfers hydrated. There were 3 water coolers on the course and one was empty in the middle of the day. There was one cart girl that we saw twice. Both times I asked her for ice in the cooler and was told to get it at the clubhouse.

Some of this is picky, but if I’m paying $100 a round, I feel these pieces are table stakes. At lease put bottle water in the coolers of your on course water supply is low.

4.5 hr round

To the staff - you got to kick people off or actively manange a group if they are holding up the entire corse. Worst round ever due to mats on the driving range, no woods allowed to be hit on range, no known distances on range, pace of play. Played Randolf oaks the day after, pace was wonderful play was great. The range actually has signs with distance. The course had paint markings for range.

Really disappointed that i brought my family from Colorado to this course. Would not play this course again even if it were free.

[The pic is from randolf oaks range....."how a driving range should look."]
