Love this course. Starting on 10 tee today which throws 2 of the tougher holes at you up front. Prefer to start on 1 tee but does not take away from the course. Variety of holes offers many challenges to the average or experienced golfer. Greens are true with a lot of undulation which makes for tricky putt ( short and long). Would definitely recommend his course to my friends

Excellent course located in the hill country. Staff was friendly and courteous. The course was in terrific shape and well maintained. Nice facilities to grab a quick bite to eat and purchase drinks. In addition, there are bathrooms located at good locations on the course. The course is challenging but not at all difficult to play so for an average golfer you do not get frustrated. The only drawback to course is that occasionally large groups play slowly and wait times between holes can add up. However, marshals are on top of things and keep golfers moving and do so in an efficient manner. Overall, this course is a good value for the money and well worth your time.

One of my favorite courses in Hill Country....absolutely Love this course!

The conditions are always great, well maintained.

Course layout is challenging but still fun.

Tucked away in the Texas Hill Country.

Have not played this gem in a long time. Last time was when it opened in the 90s. The layout and conditions were fantastic! Lovely yellow wildflowers were painted all over the course. Playing pace was a bit slow due to Sunday afternoon (weekend) which is understandable. Plays like a private cc due to great maintenance. I enjoyed the 17th hole! Shot 73 from the blue tees.

I play this course about 4-5 times a year, nice layout. I like the fact I can book a round as a Single golfer, and the pricing is reasonable. It has some interesting holes and a couple of tough holes.

The biggest challenge on this course is the greens. They're in good shape, but you really have to play here a lot to understand them. I hit a number of good approach shots just to find the ball had run by the cup 10-15' or even off of the Green. I'm and old guy and my current Handicap Idex is 9.7. My short game and putting are usually the strength of my game and where I can save a lot of strokes, but this course just can chew me up.

Pro Shop customer service is outstanding and the Grill makes a good breakfast taco.. They have a nice pavilion area for groups,, the pace of play can be slow depending on the day of the week. Play here if you get a chance.

I had difficulty with golf cart #70. I had to walk back to the clubhouse from the driving range to tell them that I couldn't move the golf cart. One of the attendants gave me a temporary cart and we drove to the driving range. He flipped a switch under the seat and the golf cart worked. I was offered to keep golf cart 70 or the temp golf cart. I kept #70.

Unfortunately I had to switch the switch 3 or 4 more times to complete my 18 holes. If this cart was defective it should not have been put to use on your golf course.

I used to play this course a lot, but I have switched to other courses primarily because of the ridiculously unfair pin positions they choose. Almost all of the pins are about 6' from the edge of some of the largest greens around. If a pin is not hanging off the edge, it is placed right next to a ridge. There is no reason for this and it really detracts from play.

We play here at least once per month. Not a long course but errant shots find trouble pretty easily. Many greens slope away from incoming shots from the fairway so approach shots need to be conservative. Traps are not overly punishing and can be navigated around easily on most holes. Greens are OK for this time of winter.
