A rough layout.

Cart paths are mostly dirt with big potholes. Some potholes had chunks of cinder blocks thrown in them. One green had two big gopher holes and a live gopher on it. Tons of fire ants. Lots of bare spots on farewaysand greens. Avoid.

Thanks.

Thanks for the kind words. We are trying to recover from winter kill on a few greens. Our main irrigation pump motor failed the week before Memorial Day and we were unable to water the course from May 24th through June 4th. The pump motor has been replaced and we have been watering and fertilizing like crazy to catch up. Golf courses are like a farm... There's always something! Thanks for the support!

Not my first time to play here and I'm planning a stay and play soon. The course wasn't the best that i have seen it but it coming around. Bobby is discounting the green fees due to the conditions. Had a blast and I will come back

This course was a blast to play!

Great layout , challenging holes, beautiful scenery and all around blast to play! The negatives were few but big!! The greens were impossible to read/putt on. Sand, dirt, and grass clumps would take a 4 foot putt and turn it into an excursion into the twilight zone That being said the overall experience was a blast ! The pace of play was awesome ! I will return soon and with more friends!

Thanks for the journey Bobby!

Franko.

Colovista Day Trip

Played Colovista over the past weekend 07/09-10 and enjoyed the course layout, the staff was very friendly, and so were the other players on the course. In fact we played through 3 groups and finished the round in about 3.25 hours. We were however a bit disappointed in the conditions of the greens with many having large dead spots. Overall enjoyed the round and for the $20K green fee would play again.

I apologize for your experience. Unfortunately our irrigation pump motor quit two weeks ago and we were unable to water the course. We installed as new motor last week ($8400.00) and now can water the course. The greens are transitioning from winter Poa Trivialis grass to summer Ultra Dwarf grass and due to the colder than normal temps in April and early May the Ultra Dwarf grass has been slow coming. We sanded and punched greens Monday I went out yesterday and the greens are better. The bare spots in some fairways are the of the fires and irrigation system . The irrigation issues have been corrected and our goal this summer is to float and sod the bare spots in the fairways. Hopefully you received a reduced rate when you played as I am charging what I consider to be a fair price for our product. In the future please feel free to contact me directly at 979-885-8485 to discuss course conditions or other issues. Happy Golfing!

Needs a lot of work

Not sure what has happened to this course, greens, boxes, bunkers and fairways all need a lot of attention. Such a fun layout, seems like a waste to let it go down like it has.

Needs a ton of work

The back 9 are a good layout but the awful conditions of the cart path, greens, bunkers, and fairways are really embarrassing. I know it was closed for several years but it needs an awful lot of work to be playable.

Colovista Review

This was my first time. The layout of the course is great however most greens were bare, several fairways had bare spots and the sand traps were not maintained. For the GolfNow same day purchase price, I would definitely go back.

Average Now, but Improving Quickly

The current condition of the course is not great but - the layout is exceptional, staff is very friendly and it is on its way back to its former glory. Mother Nature will help immensely in the coming months with some warmer weather and continued intermittent rainfall. The greens are 8/10, fairways 5/10 and tee boxes 7/10. If you require perfection, this is not your place but, if you’re a golfer...shut up and go get your game on. I wish the ownership and operators continued success and thank you for your efforts.

Needs Work, but there are some benefits

Played for the first time.

The greens were pretty challenging.

The fairways and teeboxes were hard. In general the course suffered from not being watered.

I would prefer to play Jimmy Clay or Kizer since they are closer to my home. If they improved the fairways and tee boxes charged a bit more, I'd be happy to play the course more frequently.

Thanks.

Live in CA but get to the Austin area frequently. ColoVista course is always a mandatory stop. Beautiful layout, challenging holes and very professional staff. Best golfing value I have found. Friends that I bring out to the course can't wait for another invitation!

Good course for the money

Enjoyed our round at Colovista GC. The views were fantastic and it felt like we were surrounded by nature. Pretty flat layout on the front with just few memorable holes, but the back nine is great. Got there early for a just past noon tee time. We wanted to hit a few balls to warm up, but they informed us a tournament would starting soon and if got out right then we could stay ahead of the tournament. We did for the most part but got slowed on the back as they had a few groups go off the back which slowed us down. Last few holes drug on as the players were extremely slow. No Marshall in sight but didn't expect one either given the locals on the course. Could have used a cart girl for drinks or something because we got parched on the back waiting to play. 16th hole is shortened due to some course damage I guess as I didn't see any repairs being made so go figure. All in all a goid round of golf in a very fair course.
