Grey Rock

hadn't played rock since the city took it over. Course was in great shape. Around 12 or 13 we started to experience a slow down where we waited on several holes shots. There was no marshal that we saw. Turns out 2 groups had gotten together and played the last 4 holes as an 8 some. Course worth $42 to play.

No one controls !!

I LIKE THIS GOLF COURSE BUT IF YOU GO IN THE LATE AFTERNOON (I never done before)
NOBODY IS CONTROLLED WITH SLOW PEOPLE OR OVER PACKED PLYERS like SIX PEOPLE WITH TWO GOLF CLUBS AND KIDS RUNNING EVERYWHERE. I call pro shop But NOBODY DID ANYTHING ABOUT IT. .
WE LEFT AT 11th HOLE .
. WAISTED MONEY!!

Disappointed

For a course I genuinely like my foursome had a very disappointing experience. The ranger approached us on the ninth hole telling us to speed up play because they needed carts. We played the front 9 in 2 hrs 3 minutes. I’m not going to run. Second, we had two older gentleman in our foursome who were very concerned about Covid and we were all in separate carts. We started the round this way and checked in with the starter. At the turn a Grey Rock employees stopped our group and insisted we give up two carts because they needed them for other players. You have to wear a mask in the clubhouse for Covid but they wanted to force these older gentleman to ride with strangers so they could have more carts. When we tried to explain why they needed the carts due to covid the Grey Rock Employee said it was necessary for other players. Until we gave him $40.00 cash then suddenly the cart shortage was no longer a problem. It was never about carts, $40.00 cash and suddenly the other people that needed carts where not important. Dear Grey Rock please remember you are now a public golf course. You are a muni. You act like you are a private club but you are not. You are a city course. You are over priced for what you are and you act like your patrons are beneath you. When I brought my concerns about the day to the pro shop they could Not have cared less and basics said so what. I wonder what the city will say when I contact them Monday and explain they are forcing elderly players to ride with strangers so they will have more carts (unless you give them $40.00cash) then Suddenly the cart shortage is fixed. In the covid world we live in, if you can’t provide enough carts for the safety of the players then are are overbooking your rounds. You have a great course, but it’s over priced and you need to treat your patrons with respect. You are not a private club anymore, you are a public city course. You are a muni. Please act accordingly. I will be contacting the city and letting them know of my ruined day off and what should have been an enjoyable day turned into stress and unfortunately no fun. You took over $200.00 from my group to play and additional $40.00 to magically fix the cart shortage and ruined our entire groups experience and you couldn’t have cared less. Be better, our money pays yours bills.

Best Austin Public Course

I have my favorites, each for different reasons, but if I had to pick 1....I'm going with grey Rock

One thing
Beware
While standing on the tee box of the last hole today, #9....we were hit by not 1 ball, but 2. the first ball hit my friend in the leg, then another ball came bouncing by a minute later......BEWARE....the driving range is in the range....not cool

Grey Rock is Back Open

Played it Sunday evening just after reopening. Course was in very good shape after it's layoff. Greens rolled fast and true, albeit a touch hard BUT this was at the end of a 104 day. I suspect the greens are much softer in the AM. Fairways were lush and no significant dead spots anywhere. I'd put it on par with Falconhead in terms of conditions, maybe a touch better due to the closure.

Grey Rock is premium Austin Golf

This course has come such a long way. It is in plush condition, the practice facilities are unbeatable and the greens are quicker than you'd think for not being a CC. Huge fan.

Good shape, no carts

Enjoyed the layout and opportunity to work shots both ways on this many moguls course. The greens were in good condition and the fairways were cut well. The OBs were clearly marked and grass cut right up to the lines---which is appreciated during milkweed and other weeds growing season upon us. Be ready to walk a 1/2 mile--truly--from the clubhouse to the 1st tee.

Samaritan Saved Me From Heat Exhaustion!!

The course is in great condition. The staff was very nice and friendly. I teed off in the afternoon and the day hot. The worst part of it was the walk to the first hole after playing nine. Note: We started on hole 10. It was long and tiring. I would recommend the course take players in a cart to the first tee. I played the first hole,10th overall and couldn’t go any longer. A good Samaritan saw my distress and gave me ice and a Gatorade. Thank goodness

Slow Greens

Course was in reasonable shape but the greens were super super slow. These greens are almost to the point of being redone. Also a lot of the tee boxes have a raised ridge right down the middle of the box, so the ball is either above your feet or below your feet on every tee shot. Not good, the tee boxes should be flat, at least give us a chance to start the hole on level ground.

Punched greens

Played today and the pro didn’t say anything about the back 9 greens just being punched. They were not top dressed or rolled so they were not puttable. I would have thought for the price we paid that they would have at lease told us!

Great Fun!

1st time playing. Nice layout with only complaint that greens need a roll and cutting....very slow and bumpy. Good conditions for “winter”. Staff is super friendly and very helpful.
