A Nicklaus-designed course in the hills near Lake Travis. Challenging layout. There are several holes that you need to see to figure out (when you're done, you say "I would have played that different if I knew"). They have a 'cheat sheet' available in the pro shop with hints for each course. Some of it was helpful, some not so much. We very much enjoyed the round and would definitely play again (and would probably play better,, having seen the holes). Note - NO DRIVING RANGE. They have some hitting bays with mats and nets, but that's it. They 'share' a driving range with the other course - of course, the driving range is at the other course :-( Also, this is one of two courses at the Hills CC. They are NOT located together. Don't follow instructions to Hills CC. You have to specifically search for Flintrock Falls.

Flintrock Falls has always been one of my favorite courses for some reason. Being private and part of the country club lifestyle, they have more funds and likely better staff for keeping it in such great shape. But I also really like the layout and challenges therein. There are a handful of obstacles -- fairway crossing creek beds, water hazards, well placed bunkers, etc. And they certainly have some nicely rolled, undulating greens. The one negative -- they do not have a driving range at this course. They have a couple of outdoor hitting bays to warm up your swing. But if you want a range, then you have to go over to The Hills course.

This course is nice -- especially during the spring and early summer. You should play it given the opportunity. I do like how they have you tee off and/or hit over the creek/pond a few times. It adds a little something extra into your swing thought. There are several opportunities to find water on this course with the creek winding through it. They also pump the water around to keep it going year round.

On the waterfall hole, take an extra half to full club. See all those balls in the water below the hole? Don't be that guy. Make sure you get over the deal with whatever presents itself.

And I believe it's #18 that has an elevated green. I can't say I like this hole. Nothing like basically hitting blind to a green -- especially your last one for the day. First off, make sure you get it up there. And avoid the left side where your ball can find jail, etc.

While the driving range is fine, I do not care for their putting green. It has such extreme undulation for part of it that it kind of defeats the purpose of warming up and getting ready for your round. Nothing like frustrating players right before they tee off for a round.
