Good Course but VERY Crowded

I like this course and have played here before, but today it was so so crowded. They started us almost 30 minutes late and we waited between 5 and 10 minutes every hole for the folks in front of us. They had people in front of them and we had at least two groups right behind us.

Great municipal course

This was my first time playing this course and I really enjoyed it. The conditions were good and the pace of play was good for a Saturday. I would definitely play again.

Nice course, over the top staff

I enjoyed the golf course and the two gentlemen we were paired up with that day. We finished 18 in four hours which is very good time. Though the way we were treated by the course rangers was ridiculous. The two gentlemen were older and could only hit the ball about 150 yds max. They had a handicap cart due the the one gentlemen playing the first time he’s been allowed to due to hip replacement. You could tell by watching him he was doing the best he could. But the rangers followed us and kept on us to speed it up, which I’ve played golf for forty year and we were moving at a good pace. Four hours from first ball hit to finished is very standard anywhere. I think there Problem was we didn’t keep up with the twosome in front of us. I felt really bad for this two 75+ years old gentlemen. Almighty dollar overrides understanding and common sense again.

Texas municipal golf

Golf course is ok. Price is very good and easy access. Practice facility is A+. Staff is just ok. Greens are slow and fuzzy. Municipal golf

One of my Favorite Muni’s

For a municipal course Jimmy Clay is fantastic. The fairways and greens are in really great shape. It’s a really fun course. It’s got some challenges to it but nothing that the average golfer wouldn’t love. I love playing Jimmy Clay. Most importantly it’s fun. For me a course that challenges you but also doesn’t leave you frustrated is great and Jimmy has it for sure. Go have fun.

Too much money for poor condition

All the greens are fuzzy and slow , they have serious damage on them and speeds are inconsistent. The 2 pairs in front of use took15-20 minutes per hole due to them stopping and looking for extra golf balls in the OB. Very obnoxious.

Great value

Couple of huge fairways made driving exciting. Course had some rough spots, but it looks like they were working on them. Got a good price on the app. Can’t complain

The course was terrible

The greens are in very poor shape. The first two holes was even worse cause they add sod on the green. Then as we was playing the greens didn’t get any better. So we quit that was a waste of time and money. Played other city course they look better. Will not play here again.

A definite must play course

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was running late for my tee times and they assured me my round of golf and preferred I travel safely than unsafely due to road conditions. I rate the staff 5 stars and will play this course again soon.. The course was very good and was impressed with the conditions of the course for the low price I paid for the round of golf

Lost half the greens

On the front nine most greens had 20-30% loss. Might as well have putted in the parking lot. Back nine was better, but with less than 10% loss average, but all ran slow. Rest of course was in decent shape, few bare tee boxes.
