This review is for this one time, although I have played this coarse several times. I know that this is the time of year the greens get punched but the condition of the greens were less than average, the greens appear to have rows in them as if it was a garden and the ball did not roll it bounced across the green. Since I had booked this round on GolfNow I had no way of knowing the greens were in bad condition until I walked up to the first green.

In all fairness Hyatt Resort is a great place but I would wait a couple of months before I play their Golf Course

The course (Lakes & Creeks) was in rough shape. Just about all of the tee boxes were poor, mostly sand- definitely not much grass nor much green. The greens were aerated two weeks ago and they were not good. The ball hopped all over the place and just didn't roll true. It was hot and only one cooler had water in it.

This course is not usually like this, I hope it is not a trend. Pro shop, starter and cart ladies were all very nice.

Great course in great condition. Aaron the starter is a landmark there. I think on really hot days, they could add more... like small towels in the carts, perhaps cold wash clothes with the beverage cart. I know. Getting spoiled. But the course was exceptional. Greens were fast and true

First time playing at Hyatt hill country and was very impressed. Course is in great shape, greens roll true, and price was right with GolfNow. My only complaint was slow pace of play, we were a 2some and ran into a slow 4some on 7. They never let us through despite still sitting on the tee box most holes when we pulled up and on 2 holes the 3some behind us was pulling up as they were driving away. Didn’t see a marshal the entire round, would have been nice to cut 30 mins or more off the round. Frustrating but still a great round.

This course was beautiful, and is really a fantastic depiction of the Texas Hill Country meeting golf. This course, however, is extremely challenging. just when you think you have a great drive, bam, you're behind an oak tree in the center of the fairway. the rough was pretty difficult to locate golf balls in, and the greens were sanded, so they were a little speedy. Oaks and Lakes were the courses played that day, and the layouts were great. For the price, i'd absolutely play the courses again, i just know now to play smarter, and really consider my golf shots.

I took advantage of a Hot Deal and the cost was reasonable. The pace of play was excellent--a Saturday morning and we rarely even saw the group ahead of us, and no one was nipping at our heels. The course conditions were very good. The greens were a mystery--lots of subtle breaks I couldn't see. NOT a course for walking. The layout of the three nines means long distances between a green and the next tee. I would play here again, but only on a discounted rate. If I had paid the full-freight I would have been disappointed in the experience.
