My first time playing this great course was during a scramble tournament on a very hot day. We played in 104 degree heat index and I would play it again whether it is in the same condition or only 50 degrees. This course is owned by the City of Burnet making it a municipal. This is by far one of the best munis I have every played. Every hole is pleasing to the eye. The layout features few straight fairways. Doglegs rule here. Fairways are wide and the the woods along them are full of wildlife. I must have heard no less than four times, "Aim over the deer". Hole 17 is listed in Jeff Barr's ‘1001 Golf Holes You Must Play Before You Die’. From the tee box, I didn't see it. Play a mid-iron off the tee to the middle and aim for the middle of the green. Speaking of greens, the superintendent has done a marvelous job on the greens. We played two weeks after aerification and the greens played a little slow. It didn't hide how good they are. This is a $100 green fee course for less than $50 and worth every cent. If I wasn't a member of another club, I would be here all of the time.

Great track - very challenging with all the trees, cacti, and rough. Was a bit disappointed with the greens - had definitely been aerated recently and were very bumpy. Would like to play it again but would recommend that marshals make sure the locals are patient and not hitting into us during play.

The fairways were in great shape for a public fee (for that matter - any fee) course. The greens had been punched 2 weeks prior and still need another week or two, but they rolled nicely! This out of the way course was in great shape, and has a nice little cafe as well.

Very nice setup. Course has plush fairways that are well watered everywhere and beautiful large greens which are usually faster but have been airated maybe two weeks ago and are almost done coming back ! Greens were well watered with perfect fringe and tucked slyly in to the guarding trees and undulation. Dang nice out there.

Very challenging and interesting course. It was in great shape, friendly staff, and a place you always want to come back to. Price was very reasonable.

Only bad part is that it is too hard to walk because of the distances from greens to the next teebox. All in all, it is a must play!

Delaware Springs is a fantastic public facility. Pristine condition, super nice staff and a very interesting course with beautiful views of Texas hill country.

Most holes open enough to forgive a stray drive if you are playing from the correct t box. If you think you have "game" but really don't I would strongly advise moving up a t box. You'll enjoy it more and the folks behind won't have the pain of seeing u hack out of the trees or drop a ball.

Greens moderately fast and most are small. On wrong side of hole on a few of them = 3 putt city.

Go play this track.

Delaware Springs is a spectacular public course, located in Burnet, TX, part of the scenic Texas Hill Country. We have played many of the local courses in the Austin/Central Texas area, and Delaware Springs is by far the best public course around -- including course layout and difficulty, course conditions (fairways, greens and sand traps), and overall value. It's a must-play GEM! Don't miss it.

This Hill Country gem is pleasing to the eye, while at the same time being more of a challenge than meets the eye. Always worth the trip, you will probably come away from the course feeling like it likes YOU almost as much as you like IT. The biggest downer about the course these days is that it's long since past becoming a well-kept secret. There's a growing crowd of regulars and locals; along with golfing refugees from the Austin area looking for a good deal, pace of play can be an issue. Know this up front -- the regulars and locals don't seem to be real keen on letting the city folk play through. I've been going out there 20+ years, and it's getting pretty noticeable.

The first time my husband and I played the round was really slow as there were large groups with walkers in front of us that didn't offer play through. The Marshall was nowhere to be found to help but the course was in good condition so we decided to give it another try. This time the front nine moved okay with a twosome in front of us but on making the turn we found a five some with walkers had started on #10 in front of us. We called pro shop and Marshall came out but basically did nothing - think it's the good old boy system in play. Waited on every hole with a near 5 hour round - won't play there again!
