I would rate Avery as one of the very top place to play in the whole Austin area. It is challenging without be to hard, and I don't think it is tricked up like some area courses, and by using Golf Now I always get a price that fits my budget. The just got brand new carts that are fast, quite, and have a USB charger!!

I used GolfNow to book through Avery Ranch. I played in the afternoon and it was half off.

After playing the round, I am not sure if I feel comfortable playing at $80 with the shape that the greens are in. However, playing at $40 is a great deal, so I will probably do that in the future.

Also, they gave me a free drink ticket for the bar when I checked in; I thought that was a great gesture.

Our group saw the cart girl about 3-4 times which is awesome as well. Its a great way for the course to make extra money!

Overall, I will be back!

Range balls are terrible- old and cut up

Range itself is terrible - muddy with very little grass

Staff is barely courteous

We waited 30 minutes for a golf cart as they didn't have enough and had overbooked tee times

One worker said "This isn't my job" regarding golf carts

Some greens already burned up and not even hot yet.

Pace of Play is a joke and always has been - Avery Ranch "Home of the 5 hour round of golf" and on 06/10/2017 it was 5 hours and 10 minutes. Ridiculous! Never play there again!!

Why I quit both courses they own have horrible pace of play. The owners could care less about you golf experience. I live around the corner from Avery . As hot as it was Sunday I drove to cowan creek 14 miles away to hit balls. That should tell you the extent they have alienated golfers. Their canned response tells it all.

Hi Madison,

We would like to apologize for your experience at Avery Ranch. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make it up to you.

This round was a great value, and is now vying for my favorite daily fee course in Austin. We played in the heat of the summer here in Texas, and the course conditions were immaculate, well as immaculate as they generally can be here in Austin. The greens or well-kept, the fairways were extremely playable and green, and even the roughs were in excellent condition, well-maintained. It was Friday afternoon, and we saw the cart lady five different times, which is great when you need an extra drink in this heat. Reminded me of being at a private club. Will definitely be going back.

My friend and I got a hot deal from GolfNow. Unfortunately the weather turned on us and started raining (with thunder & lightening) after the 8th hole. We decided to take a rain check and when we chatted with the service clerk he informed us rain checks cannot be granted to online purchases like hot deal offers. We we're both disappointed and decided to sit out the rain cell (30 minutes). We were soaked by the time we finished playing 18 holes and I was left with a disappointed feeling from the entire experience. We weren't interested in a refund but just an opportunity to play 9 holes another time.

As the for the greens, the grass was in good shape, there were some odd looking half-finished construction areas/"garbage" or unsightly corners, and the signature hole (#5?) was unimpressive as toted.

As for the service, the staff and service were excellent (minus the hot deals/online purchase rule they have).

Hi!

We apologize for the mix up with the rain check. We are always offering great specials when you book a tee time through our website, so next time make sure to check that out! We hope you will be back to play at Avery Ranch soon!

I thought the course was in great shape for all the rain we have had. Thought we were going to be cart paths only, but was pleasantly surprised for 90 degree rule. And even though a holiday, we finished in just over 4 hours. Front desk, cart and bartender and starter were all friendly and courteous.

Had a wonderful day.
