Winter golf

Have always enjoyed playing here. Very challenging coarse. Coarse only gets a 3 star for today but simply because all the pecan trees are loosing their leaves which are everywhere and you often loose your ball in them. They will soon be all gone and coarse will be great again.

A Hidden Gem, in a small town!

The front 9 greens are still in a recovery process, but surprisingly chipped and putted pretty well overall. The back 9 greens are in great shape. We (2 some) usually play pretty fast and we’re pleased with a 3 hrs and 10 min. The course offers plenty of shade here and there, but also open enough to get a breeze to make it very manageable in the summer heat. Despite the front 9 greens, the rest of the course was in great shape! A hidden gem in a small town! Great Layout and fun course with still more potential!

I have loved this course layout over the years. A few new challenges with trees getting older/larger, bunkers are now grass bunkers which is a nice new challenge. Overall a balanced course of easy holes to attack and difficult holes to survive. I plan to be back more often for the price, and rest of the course conditions! Very friendly people as well!!

San Saba

Fun, challenging course. Played first out on a Saturday by myself. Got around the course in barely over 2 hrs. Although I did run into a sixsome and seven pack of locals on the back nine, they were really gracious to let me tee off with them and play thru right away, with no wait. Greens were a little burned out, and a 2 or 3 were worse off than others, but they were playable, except for one. There was a temporary green on the par 5 6th hole, which was kind of a bummer to see. Tees and fairways were in decent shape. Front nine is pretty wide open, while the back nine is very tight, with alot of trees that come in to play on approach shots. Overall, well worth the $40 price on a Saturday morning, but maybe not worth the 1.5 hr drive from Georgetown.

Hidden Gem

A hidden gem in Central Texas. New greens on front 9 are maturing and nice. Fairways have good bermuda grass. No sand - grass bunkers. Built along river so lots of variety in holes including water, trees, doglegs, etc. Truly a fun place to play with enough to challenge all skill levels.

Perfect Find

It is a small town course, I did get lost for a second but overall a great course. Needs some work but for a small town I loved it. If you like Hancock Golf Course in Lampasas you will love this course.

Maybe in spring?

The course was flat, pretty straight forward with a lot of tree lined fairways that will cause you problems if you aren’t right down the middle. Until you get to 18, which is the worst par 5 layout I’ve ever seen. An island green that after you hit a 200 yard drive from the reds you now have a 180 yard 2nd over the water which most players couldn’t hit because the trees are in the way. It ruined the round. Apparently nobody waters the courses or winter seeds in Texas, the grass was brown, dead spots, dusty and dirty and the greens were horrible. That being said, maybe it’s better in spring and summer and I was relieved I got the round for so cheap or I would have been very upset. The best part of the course was the staff at the small clubhouse. So friendly and helpful they were awesome but not sure I would go back in spring based on the course condition overall. Green grass doesn’t fix hard pan dirt areas or torn up greens.

Very nice course

Lots of trees, most all of the greens were in very good shape. Course will make you think about not only your first shot, but how to make sure you have a second shot to work with. Friendly staff and good value for the money.

golf at San Saba

A river runs through the tree lined course and is visible on a number of holes. Most holes force you to decide if your stock shot is going to work or risk hitting next shot from jail. I found jail a few times but there is not dense underbrush so escape is possible. The greens were in decent shape even though its August and hot. The last hole is a par five with an interesting forced water carry to the edge of the green. Staff were super friendly. Course has a range and practice green. Excellent value and fungus had by all
