Very decent

Course is in good shape. Very decently designed track for a "real estate" layout. Not crowded and pace of play good. Toughness is kind of deceiving ... not really difficult, but the bogeys can add up in a hurry.

Wide open fairways

The course is in great condition. Fairways and greens were both well kept. Not very many obstacles on the course, or around the greens. Very open terrain, you won't loose many balls, if any.

okay

Been playing the course for years and enjoy trying to go and shoot my lowest round every summer. Not many choices out here, but the course has always been well kept. It does tend to get a little burned out in the dog days of summer, but greens have always been good.

Always in good shape!

Very consistent and always a good experience. The facilities are always clean, the staff is always helpful and friendly and the course is usually in great shape considering the severity of the South Texas summers!

Hill Country fun

Played in a little over 3 hrs. Always enjoy the pace at Flyihg L. Greens were lightly sanded but had been notified earlier. Pro shop guys always friendly unlike other area courses and they get you off the tee promptly.

Can't see why it was highly rated.

What was not disclosed online when I booked was they just punched the back nine and the front nine was closed so "play the punched back nine twice". Also it was Cart Path only! I saw a lot of weeds and other grasses in the "Fairways" I am not a great golfer but for a 15 handicap to shoot 42, 41 for the 2 nines with 2 3 putts per side tells me it had to be a very easy course. Not many Bunkers, not much water. Best thing was I shot 83 and finished 18 holes in 2 hours and 5 minutes.

Entirely satisfactory...

Entirely satisfactory round of golf. Reasonable green fees and above average friendly staff. Drawbacks: no course Marshall to regulate pace of play. Also, keep it in the fairway or risk gouging your irons on the many rocks just under the turf surface.

Awesome Coarse

The only complaint I have is when you book it on Golfnow. You might want to call in to make sure there are no scrambles or tournament 's starting at the time you tee off. 1st time I played, normal pace, great game. Next time, we were put in behind a 6 person scramble, with 2 people playing it was slow play all the way. And there were more 4 some's ahead of them. Terrible day. Bad game.

Fun course

Always enjoy playing here. Would like to see a Marshall at times but never just log jammed. Greens are a little behind other area courses but hopefully recent rains will help get it caught up. Good course.

Over rated

I played the course based on its ratings. I was a bit surprised it received such high ratings. Fairways were shoddy at best, and some of the holes were poorly laid out. The couple redeeming qualities was the location/scenery and the greens were decent, when there wasn't too much crab grass affecting the roll.
