Struggling Course

I also played this course prior to Covid; so, I don't believe the level of disrepair is solely due to the pandemic. While the course layout is nice, most of the holes had obvious signs of neglect. Not worth the $50 I paid in my opinion. Staff was great, though.

Nice layout... working to upgrade fairways

Longtime fan of Colovista... 2 totally different 9s
Front 9 is flat but challenging; back 9 is fun and beautifully wooded and more challenging with several doglegs and fabulous signature par 3 15th hole overlooking the Colorado river!!

Great pace to play!

The greens have improved significantly over the summer due a lot of hard work, maintenance and a little rain! We enjoyed our game!

Great place to play golf in Central Texas

We always have a great time at colovista. front 9 is a wide open links style course and the back 9 has all kinds of terrain changes including their signature hole #15 - with a 150 ft elevation change to the green. Great views of the Colorado river and lots of pine trees. People are friendly and they manage to keep the greens in great shape even with the hot Texas sun.

ColoVista Course Review

ColoVista has every golf shot a golfer would want. It demands all facets of your game with the elevation changes and dog legs. Greens were rolling true as gold and very soft to fly into. Bunkers were maintained and playable. Fairways have plenty of green grass with a few bare spots here and there but one can tell that they are working hard to get the course back into Mint condition. We will be back with a big group at the end of the month and looking forward to seeing the continued comeback ColoVista is making. I would recommend this course to anybody as it is a beautiful layout.

Fairways Rough

Overall the course was good. A lot of the fairways had dirt patches but played around the dirt patches. Tee boxes were hard to get a tee in without it breaking. The greens had some areas that were damaged, maybe the heat got to them? Overall for the price it was a good day.

Cart Path?

Great course layout. Greens need a lot of help and for some reason they forgot to overlay the cart paths with asphalt. With some good money invested this could be a great place.

Good value on improving course

$40 for a Sunday morning is a good deal around Austin. The course has always had a good layout. Conditions continue to improve. The greens rolled very well and had a good speed. The fairways had a few isolated bare spots, but nothing drastic. The newly sodded areas on 16 and 17 continue to grow in. Worth the drive from Austin to play a fun layout at a good cost.

Golf in the Heat

Greens are absolutely great...roll so true. They are a bit hard as we played mid afternoon in record breaking heat. Fairways and tee boxes need rain. Cart paths are pretty non existent. All that said....loved the course and so excited for Colovista’s rebirth. Looking forward to spring time 2021 after we get some rain and fairways get right!

Possibly self-boosting reviews?

I’m not sure who is giving these reviews or where they usually play, but there’s no shot this is a 3+ star course. Cart paths were nowhere to be seen, fairways had huge dirt spots which were essentially concrete, greens weren’t in that great of shape, half the fairways were blocked off by rope so you couldn’t even access them, it was just a mess. The front nine was so bad I legitimately wanted to leave after about hole 7. However, I figured since I paid $40 for the twilight round & a small bag of balls (which is ridiculous in itself), I might as well stay.

The back nine is the sole reason I gave this course 2 stars, because there were actually some nice holes on that half. Hole 15 has one of the most beautiful views I’ve ever gotten the chance to play. The guy in the pro shop was extremely nice & helpful as well.

It seems like they’re either in the middle of a huge reconstruction of the front nine, or they just don’t really care about it. I would not recommend playing here until the course is fixed (or only play the back nine), which who knows will even happen.

Good Time

There are a lot of really bad reviews on this course. But i saw a couple recent reviews that said the course was looking much better. This is True. there are rough spots here and there, and the cart paths are a joke, but most tee boxes were good, the grass is good in most places, and the greens are fine.

There is a Par 3 on the back 9, that looks down and out over a stunning vista with the Colorado river in the distance, hence the name ColoVista. beautiful hole. There is no better scenic hole in all of the Austin area.

We will be back
