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.

Poor Greens

Course in good shape, but greens were poor. Browned out, very dry. Had fertilizer on them, so hope they will bounce back with some water.

Likely a good course at one time, greens were below average, pace of play slow, four hours and forty five minutes. The greens need to improve before I return.

Best value muni in Austin

Course is in more consistently great shape than other munis in the area and for no more than $40 for a round most days it’s hard to beat. Fun layout with some challenging holes depending on what tees you play from.

Great morning

Got in an impromptu 18 during the work week and managed to walk 18 holes in a three-ball in about 3 hours flat. Felt like stealing.

Clay is my favorite layout among the Austin munis and that includes Grey Rock. I just don't play here enough because Mo and Muny are closer. I think it has nearly the perfect amount of trees on it (okay, maybe 3 and 18 have a few too many) and the roll to the land is gentle but interesting. Holes require you to shape it both ways. Some you must be cautious. On others you can let it rip. One thing I noticed on this round was all these little pockets of native grasses that are well off playing corridors that add a nice aesthetic. The course really is looking good, even if I caught it about a week after aerification. (That said, I had just 30 putts). The fairways were about as carpet-like as munis get in Texas.

I'm especially cheesing because I parred 3 and 18. I never par those holes. Cheers y'all.

Just under 4 hours on Memorial Day

Nice pace if play even though lots of people were out. Greens were just so-so. Not too bad but some bumpy rides. You can see in the photo. Bunker sand was pretty good. Bev cart and ranger made it around a few times. Plenty of water coolers.

Great Munny Course

Overall, the course was in really good condition, probably the best shape I have ever seen. I can't put my finger on it, but the greens were missing something. That's the only reason I didn't give it five stars.

Okay was slow due to too many players booked at each tee time. We quit after 9 holes.
