This is one of Austin's premier public courses, always in very playable condition with really good greens. They have an excellent maintenance crew who keep the course prime. GolfNow has some really good tee times and prices for this course almost every week making it a very manageable financially course to play on a regular basis. One of my most favorite courses to play in Austin.

We enjoyed the course layout a lot. Some very interesting holes. Course knowledge is a premium. Conditions were dry but nice. Greens held a shot well. The pace seems to be a problem here. We expected it as it was Sunday afternoon. Over 5 hours waiting every shot.

I am new to Austin and have been trying to play as many courses in the area as possible to get a feel for the options. Having played five different courses so far, this is definitely my favorite. There are some challenging holes, elevation changes, and some are just really nice to look at golf holes. Course knowledge is a definite plus. The greens were in good shape, but still a bit slow from the maintenance two weeks prior. there were a few tee boxes that were pretty torn up. One thing that should be on the website regarding course alerts, but is not, is that on Tuesday the range is not open until noon. This is despite having mats. So, if you plan to play on a Tuesday morning and you need to warm up, you're out of luck. You have to go the first tee cold.

Course is one of the nicer courses in the area but 5hrs pace of play was excruciating. People that think they are “on the tour” and take 4or 5 practice swings on each shot and not understanding the idea of ready golf make playing here difficult. Even bad players can get a round in under 4hrs. I would not recommend playing here on weekends, but hopefully weekdays are better.

Pretty course, always a pleasure to play. Marked weather as "wet" due to wet fairways and bunkers and played cart path only (at least some of us did). Played longer than the yardage said. Pace was right at 4 hours even with cart path only, although it felt like we waited on every fairway. Pretty course - lots of ravines to hit over!

Very small rain night before, range closed and cart path only. Bunkers had no sand and half full of water. This course should be more the $30 range not the $90 they think it's worth. Pro was a very rude, I won't return and Im a member at Terra that reciprocal with them. No thanks.

This is the 3rd time this has happened to me. The "deal" is a deal on Golfnow because the members know not to play on the backend of a tournament. The result is super slow play and I blame it on Avery. They sent off 8 people per group and when we arrived they were teeing people off every 7 minutes. We only ended up playing 9 holes in three (3) hours. We spent more time waiting than playing. We did not see a marshall the entire time on the course.

I've played a lot of golf in my life and am an 8 index, so my standards for courses are fairly high. This is my go-to public course in Austin. I'm surprised that it isn't rated even higher than most other courses in the area. The course is well laid out with memorable holes that have character. The course condition has always been great, and I'm always finding a great deal on GolfNow (consistently better than the deals for other equally-rated courses in the area). The practice facility is excellent, as is the starter experience. I highly recommend Avery Ranch.

The course is in fantastic shape. Tee box to green is lush and smooth. Greens ran quick. We did have rain the day before and the bunkers showed, but it's expected.

The only downside was the pace of play. We teed off at12:54 and finished at 6:30. We waited on every hole, every shot. Seems to be a trend.

I would rate Avery as one of the very top place to play in the whole Austin area. It is challenging without be to hard, and I don't think it is tricked up like some area courses, and by using Golf Now I always get a price that fits my budget. The just got brand new carts that are fast, quite, and have a USB charger!!
