Fun despite social distancing

The course did a great job maintaining required social distancing and provided a nice round of golf. I was pleasantly surprised that pace of play was good given that I played on a perfect Saturday afternoon. The tee boxes and fairways were in good condition. Some of the greens were in rough shape, but the person I played with said that they were improving. I will certainly play the course again.

Take into consideration that this is an old course

The staff is cool and when they get the new practice facility in the course will be really good. The greens just need a little work and they need to know the rough and will be good to go!

Lost their greens, in bad shape

Tee boxes are a little rough, fairways in decent shape but they lost their greens, seems to have a disease now with hardly any grass. Basically feels like you are putting on dirt with weeds.

Save your money and stay away from this course until they get the greens back.

First Time Playing

Woman working on 3/1/2020 is nuts

First my scheduled tee time got moved back 45min due to a tournament, granted with a 48h notice, but still not chill on a Sunday afternoon, with no fee difference.

The head lady in the pro shop called me to the tee box 20min ahead of my scheduled tee time trying to sneak me onto a different threesome than I was scheduled to go off with (?)

Only got to hit half my range balls.

Then, she called my scheduled group to the tee box *ten minutes* before our tee time..... and 3min before our time, was yelling over the intercom for us to hurry up - it was truly stunning..

After 1, we got to the #2 tee - and there were TWO groups waiting to tee off.

5 hour round.

Good muni

As with other Austin municipal courses Morris Williams is something local golfers should be proud to call their own. Pace of play was not bad considering it was a late February 64^ Saturday. It’s very well maintained.

Great course for learning

Having just taken up golf this year, I have enjoyed each and every visit to Morris Williams. Play can be slowed because of other players learning the rules and the game. Greens are in great shape and the course itself is well maintained and staffed with helpful and knowledgeable folks.

Greens were terrible... muddy or sandy

Greens had very little grass. Mud spots everywhere along with dry patches of sandy dead grass. There was crab grass growing on the greens making it pinball around as well. If you play here it’s best to do an auto 2 putt rule.

Great Value

Recently played Morris Williams and it was a verity pleasant surprise. I have a soft spot for a great muni and this one didn’t disappoint. Green fee was less than $30 to walk 18 and our 4 some made it around in just under 4 hours after only occasionally waiting on an early Sunday morning. The layout had some nice variety in topography the course conditioning was as expected for November. Some great views of downtown highlight the course on the front 9. Staff was friendly and you can sense the passion from players that frequent the facilities. One of the very best values in all of Austin for the price, location and solid course.

Course in good shape, pace of play was horrible

Course in good shape for this time of year but the pace was brutal. Played the first 2 holes in 40 minutes, no Marshall going around on the course to control pace, had to call in to complain, get a Marshall to come out which the pace got somewhat better but still every tee box, the group in front of us was always waiting to hit on the their tee shot.

Won't be playing hear again due to pace of play. Basically I paid to hang out in a golf cart all day instead of playing a round a golf.

Great course

As usual. Fantastic course. Pace of play was a little slow. But it was a Sunday in the low 80’s. It was a golfers perfect day.

Will be back again

Mo-Town is back!

What a great place to play. I have NEVER seen the course at this level of overall condition. It is amazing what water, fertilizer and proper maintenance will do for a golf course in Texas in the Summer. Kudos to the entire staff, especially the course superintendent. Keep it up!
