Played on Sunday and it was probably my 30th time playing. I enjoyed the course and for the most part it was in great condition. The only hiccup was the previous heavy rains and two fairways were still a little muddy. Other than that, it was excellent.

Greens are better look like a different blade of grass. Greens were aerated so we didn't get the full measure of them. they are playing slower than before i noticed all the courses in austin went to this blade or class of grass (Bermuda). Oh yea the green before were like the greens at Grey Rock but they also had there greens turning dark. you can see it's a smaller blade of Bermuda. oh i am a senior and i played off the Black tees and still shot a 85 not bad for me i'll take it any day. I gave up golf several times and many years apart so to play like I am playing i like it.

This is about the sixth time I've played here and it seems every time I play here, my scores keeps going down. The course was in really good shape considering the sweltering heat we have here in Texas. I only saw a few areas that needed some attention and one of the water dispensers was almost bone dry (it was in the back nine). On a side note, I found interesting that one could play at Morris Williams from 12 -3pm for $25 but if you booked online it was $27 plus all the other fees.

This course actually wasn't bad. The price was right. But I teed off at 830 ish on s Monday and it was awful as far as pace. I was with another golfer as a two some and we backec up to a group who wouldn't let us play through .. this is why golf is struggling ..

MW is a reasonably challenging course due to its layout, but it is also fairly wide open. A little long especially with some hills, and trouble is definitely around for wayward shots. Very few blind shots but some hidden hazards if not familiar with course. Good location on the eastern part of town across from the former airport. Driving range adequate but not fancy. Pace of play was better than one might expect for a public course on the weekend, but we did not play particularly fast either. Definitely worth a return visit, although i doubt i can match my score again - i drove particularly well and mostly in the short grass - which helps.

Course was in good shape only complaint is the greens could have been better. Everything else was excellent. Price was the best part. This course is better than Clay and Kizer only problem is trying to get home at 5Pm from this course.

The greens are in horrendous shape. The tee boxes and fairways are pretty bad, but not as bad as the greens. Every single green has tons of patches with zero grass, just what seemed like roots of dying grass that'll seem never to grow again. As a result, the greens were super bumpy and impossible to read. One of the guys in our foursome, got a 74, no idea how he putted so well in those things. Also they aerated some of the fairways and tee boxes, but it looks like Freddy Krooger did the job. It's a shame that a course that used to be my favorite muni a year ago, it's gotten in such bad shape over a year, that I'll probably never return to it again. My recommendation, close this course for a few months, until its greens take good shape again.

I have played this course numerous times and it is one of my favorite places to play. The tract meets my eye well, the staff are exceptional and the price affordable. The greens are struggling with transitioning from winter to summer, hence my "fair" rating for course conditions. I know this is a temporary condition so plan on continuing to play this course at every opportunity. if you want an enjoyable round, I highly recommend Morris Williams Golf Course.
