The course is wonderfully designed. Every shot must be thought out, even the layups which, unless hit on the correct line and the correct distance will leave you in a position where par is an unlikely score. For the “Golf Now” price it was a very good value. I will definitely play there again.

If your visiting Hill Country, play this course. I e played at 3:30 pm the past two days and finished both rounds in 3.5 hrs. The staff is great and all 27 holes are fun and very playable for all skill levels. The greens are sneaky fast and the bunkers are all consistent and well manicured. Overall the value for the money is awesome.

Besides the little incident with the fine print policy in my previous posting the course is still my favorite course in the area. The greens run true (if you can read the line) and the fairway is free of debris. The bunkers are looking great. Love the sand texture, easy to play out of.

I've played this course many times through the years and never had I noticed the fine print on GolfNow website for this particular course. I went to the course about two hours before my tee time and was told that I can not check in till an hour before my tee time. Also, I can not hit the range balls till that time but I may chip and putt while I wait. For some one who spent thousands dollars to come to the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch Resort over the years and had payed various prices for the golf at this course THIS IS DEMORALIZING. However, it is in the FINE PRINT. So, the man had done nothing wrong. It just hard for a sixty years old man to walk a couple of hundred yards between chipping green and clubhouse just to check in. (So I won't hit their precious RANGE BALLS before too soon). Folks read the fine print, don't come too early, you may be disappointed. Other than that THIS IS A GREAT COURSE.

Thank you for the review. We include rang balls in all of our tee times, therefore we have notes in the online tee times stating the practice areas are available one hour before tee off. We do not offer unlimited range balls before your tee time. We also have notes so that tee times are are on-time, and avoided groups teeing off earlier than scheduled. Thank you for coming out and we hope to see you again in the near future.

Fairways are tighter than most area courses, so straight drives are needed to score well. Course was a little soggy from rain the previous day which added to the challenge by eliminating some of the roll. Lots of contour on the greens and still pretty fast even with the rain. Course amenities and facilities are first class.
