Pleasantly surprised with this course. It is very well-maintained and you can't beat the price booking through GolfNow.com.

I live in Austin and traveling through this part of Hill Country, through Marble Falls is a nice drive.

The course is not long, no really difficult holes and hazards... the place is set in some beautiful natural surroundings.

One of the best munis in central TX. My only pet peeve is the fivesomes they let play... slow play, of course sometimes you get the guys playing from the tip that can't reach the junior tee boxes...

I played there 10 to 15 years ago. Irrigation and cart paths were poor, in particular. The upgrades they have made have changed the course from just a little better than a cow pasture to a course that I look forward to replaying!!!

It's summer and it's been hotter then normal here in Central TX but the course was in excellent condition. I love some of the holes on this course, a few you need to have played before to get a sense of how to attack the green. Greens run true, but they are hard and even after a good shot the ball may run thru. Some holes you may want to try more of bump & run shot. Great muni, better then most. It's an drive for me, but I like to play it 3-4 times a year.

Be careful what days & time you pick to play, they get a lot of play from the local men's and women's clubs. Pace of play can be slow. I played on a Sunday, 3rd group off, and it took 3 hrs total. But it only took an hour & 15 mins to play the F9. Behind a local couple that were struggling. They had a single player in front of them that left them in the dust.

Overall just expect to play at 4..5 hrs but it's worth it. Oh, great customer service & the snack bar serves up some good eats. !

I'm a 12 handicap, so I played the whites. Not long. Scored well. 9 over Par 71. I noticed the back tees were significantly longer.

Greens roll good, kinda fast.

No water,. very fair, not hard course, pretty basic.

Overall a very nice layout with good scenic quality.

Do not walk unless you are in good shape and walk fast, because you will slow play. the holes are often very far apart from green to next tee.

It's a good time

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.

I like this course and try to play it each time we are in the area. It is a fun track with some great views. This time however, the greens were in bad condition and the pace of play was terrible. We quit after 15 holes. I will go back but I am going to wait awhile to see if the greens recover.

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.
