Hill Country Gem

Course in great shape. Greens are fast, which I'm not use to. Beautiful layout, deer are a common sight. Played from senior tees and, for a non long ball hitter, was VERY enjoyable. Plan on returning for the other two courses at this resort.

Cliffside Continues to Represent a "Must Play"

I first played this course about 15 years ago when I was first learning the game and finally made a trip back out there in December to see if it had changed. This course continues to have the best playing conditions of any of the courses on property and it possesses a simple, yet challenging golf experience.

I played from the tips and still felt the course plays a little short, but the narrowness of some of the fairways certainly factors in. I hit more irons off the tee than drivers, but when I needed to pull driver because of the hole length, I found a much wider fairway. Really well designed course, lots of ups and downs, doglegs both left and right, and a great mix of par 3s. I found myself hitting 4, 7, 8, 9 and GW on the par 3s which presented a good variety for a player.

Will certainly come back and I consider this and the Palmer Course to be tied for the best "value" yet "quality" courses when it comes to the Austin area.

Conditions

This was a very beautiful golf course. The greens are large and have a lot of undulation. There was a lot of sand on the greens that had to be swept out of the way before putting. This occurred on several of the greens and slowed pace of play. Overall, I would recommend this course to everyone.
