Nice layout. Horrible greens

I picked this course because it looked beautiful online and it was. I would say the greens were in bad shape but calling them "green" would be misleading. They are mostly devoid of grass and have some sort of green chemical on them. I'll be washing all of my clubs as soon as I get home. If the greens weren't such a disappointment i would be giving it four stars and highly recommending it to others. Our twosome finished in just under three hours.

WORST GREENS IN TEXAS

This title is not hyperbole. There is NOTHING WORSE then paying a good deal of money, $75 in this case, and having the greens be UNPLAYABLE. The worst part is the Starter, the Golf Shop Folks, literally no one gave anyone playing a head's up. The season pass holders at the course advised us to complain, saying "Yep, there are absolutely horrible" as we made the turn, but who wants to deal with that? Every single green was horribly diseased and covered with with sand/fertilizer. Shame on this course for not communicating to golfers and charging such an obscene price for a terrible experience.

Greens need time to grow in

Greens are horrible, many bare spots and heavily sanded. Tees and fairways in great shape.

I saw a review from a few weeks ago that mentioned the greens and I called a couple days before playing and was told the front was spotty & sanded on Tuesday, back was in good shape. Upon arrival, our fees were dropped from $85 to $70 as a discount, didn't say why. Great news to me as I was hosting guests and covered fees for 4.

Putting green was in great shape so I was hopeful. At first tee, the starter mentioned the front 9 was sanded and the back was in good shape. Well..... all the greens were horrible.

Liked everything else about the course. Would play again but not until greens are confirmed. Based on what I saw, it will be 4-6 weeks minimum to be reasonable.

Horrible Greens

Never seen greens so bad. I saw reviews from a few weeks ago about greens recently being sanded. Called course a couple days before playing and the pro shop guy told me he just played, front 9 were a little spotty and back 9 were perfect. Upon arriving, pro shop said he was giving me a discount from $85 to $70, sweet!. He didn't explain why. Putting green was in awesome shape and had similar expectations for course greens. At first tee, the starter mentioned the front 9 greens were spotty, back in great shape. Well...they are all horrible. Heavily sanded, many bare spots.

Tees and fairways were in great shape. Liked the course layout. Would love to play again after the greens come in.

My guess is someone made a horrible mistake and chemically burned them. Course claimed frost but I dont by that. I live in the area and all our other courses are fine.

Greens are terrible

At the time of playing this course. The greens are in such terrible shape the course should not even be open. Putting is not really even possible. the greens have the texture of golf ball actually, all full of dimples and not much turf to speak of. I am not a great golfer but feel cheated that was not able to use my putter. We just decided to get on the green and add strokes and not waste time trying.

This course has a great layout

Greens were very bad on the front 9 and OK on back, but other than that great layout and golf course. Staff was very friendly and good amenities.

Why are you giving the course 4 stars when the greens are unplayable? We depend on reviews to choose how to spend our money and enjoy our precious weekends. This course was a crazy ripoff for the quality of conditions.

Like the course but c'mon

I'd held off on playing at Grey Rock for a while because I heard it wasn't worth the increase in price v. the other munis (Kizer/Clay/Mo Willy) but I finally made it out for the first time a couple weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised/impressed with the quality of the course, practice facilities, etc. Now for the 'but' ... I loved playing the course the first time BUT I went and played last night, paid ~$40 for a 9 hole round, and at no point in time did anyone mention that they had punched/sanded the greens to the point that I was essentially putting on a shuffleboard surface. I've never complained about course conditions before, but this is where I draw the line in terms of course management etiquette. I get that it's a necessary thing to do, but you better either adjust your price accordingly or AT MINIMUM tell people! Also, if you have to hit off the mats on the range, you might as well hit off concrete. The grass is great on the range but the mats are worse than other courses. All in all, if you're planning on playing, just call ahead and confirm the course isn't going to throw you a curveball.

Nice course, but had issues (hopefully weather related)

I was in from out of town - I had never played here but the course looked nice and had good reviews. Austin had a couple days of heavy rain leading up to the day we played but we played crack of dawn and the weather was very nice. Had first tee time of the day and the pace of play was of course awesome (2.5 hour round for 2some. Despite the rain (Cart path only), the course itself was dry enough....... but........ the greens were terrible. A combination of muddy, bumpy and extremely slow. I know they could not mow the greens that day, but hopefully the greens are normally in better shape. I liked the layout and it is a good course. But the greens were comically bad. I also did not have the best experience renting clubs and some customer service. My "premium" rental club set had I think 11 clubs and no sand wedge. I did get to borrow a sand wedge, but that seems like an essential club. I also asked for a towel (the course was a little wet and muddy) and was told I could buy one. Anyway...I liked the course, would play again, but only if the greens were somewhere well above the 3 they probably were on the stimpmeter the day I played.

Diseased Greens?

Incredible layout and a really fun course. Unfortunately, it’s April and the greens are in the absolute worst shape. Not a single one will roll true or hold. Patches of grass that are a half inch long, super sandy over seeding conditions... wow. If I paid anything over $20 I would have felt scammed.

Greens were a mess

Played Sunday. Hoped for an enjoyable round. Rain made things difficult and the range and practice areas were shut down. Course has some interesting holes, but my goodness were the greens shameful. Most were 60-70% bare. Where grass was intact, it was fuzzy and slow. Of course no one told us this.

greens in awful shape

The fairways and tee boxes were in good shape for this time of year (middle March), but the greens were in awful shape. We got a discounted rate so we didn't feel too bad. Really glad we didn't pay full fare.

Good Round

Played a fast 18 with one other player on the last day of winter. Tee boxes and fairways in excellent condition. Greens still dormant and very fast, but fair for their present condition.

Poor Condition/Don’t Bother

Glad I had a $19 Golf Now deal, or I would have felt severely scammed at the more commonly charged rates of $35-$70! All of the greens are in terrible condition, the fairways have a lot of thin spots, and you can forget about it if you end up on the outer edges of the fairway where you’ll only find bald soil, rocks, sticks and leaves. This place does not resemble a flagship course in any way, Mo Willy and Roy Kyzer are both better options for your money. The young lady in the restaurant/bar had nothing to offer personality wise either, and when I mentioned my frustration wth the condition of the greens to the fellow in the pro shop he turned his back to me without making a comment. Beautiful facilities and grounds won’t make up for any of the many other shortcomings Grayrock is suffering!

Okay round

Had a tee time for 11:50, course apparently had a tournament the same day and we didn’t actually tee off until around 12:50. Did not get any notification or heads up for a late start whatsoever. Course was in decent shape yet on many holes the greens had elevated patches of grass.
