Unique. Worth the Trip

With elevation changes, blind tee-shots, and fall colors, this course was a beautiful round of golf. Deer everywhere. The value was excellent.

Greens were in terrible condition. Packaged snacks with limited. Service was sub par.

I plan to go back because the course is so different and fun. This course has amazing potential. I would certainly recommend going even with the poor green conditions.

Perfect Fall Day at the Course

I have played this course dozens of times. Nice, not extremely challenging. Unlike the other Lago Vista course, this one has a driving range to loosen up. Practice facilities are no outstanding.. Nice grill/ bar area. Pro Shop just okay.
Sunny and 75 degrees with good friends. Nice!

Positives and negatives

Pace was slow due to playing behind 2 fivesomes that were following a sixsome. Course was burned out in many places including some greens. That said,, staff was very friendly and course layout was scenic and fun to play.

You get what you pay for

Course with beautiful views and decent pace of play. The tee boxes were sandy and had some areas with heavy fire ants. The fairways were in decent shape although some areas pretty dry (it is later in summer). The greens were in bad shape, thick areas of grassy weeds, sand pits, bare areas, really just once you hit the green you know why you are paying a low price.

All in all alright course but personally I would rather spend the extra $20 to play a course in much better conditions.

Hence, you get what you pay for.

The Worst Golf Course In Central Texas

The City of Lago Vista owns this course . . . and obviously doesn't care about golfers. It is by far the worst course I have played in Central Texas and just about the worst course in the world.
Which is sad, because the layout is quite interesting and would be a challenge . . . if the course was not a broken down dog tract.
Many of the greens, if you can call them that, on the front nine had multiple holes in them, little or no grass, and were the worst greens I have ever seen. It was clear that they were not watering the front nine to the level necessary to maintain the greens, the tee boxes, and the fairways.
The front nine fairways were uneven in their condition, with many parts of the fairway covered with brown, dead grass on top of soil that was a hard as rocks. Many of the tee boxes were so hard that it was almost impossible to stick your tee into the ground.
What makes no sense is that the city of Lago Vista owns the golf course and the golf course is right next to the Lago Vista water treatment plant. So there should be zero problem with the city using its water to water its golf course. But they didn’t.
When Lago Vista owned Highland Lakes, they piped city water across town to water that course. So why not water the course that is right next to your plant?
The back nine was in much better shape, but still had serious issues.
I was embarrassed to have invited two friends to play Lago Vista for the first time.
Not all was bad. The people at the course are wonderful . . . and the Yamaha gas carts are in great shape.
But the golf course is a disaster. It should be should be shut down until they can bring it back to life.
For me, it doesn’t make a difference what they do. We will never, ever play that golf course again as long as I am alive.
Never, ever, ever.

Rough

A friend and I met here to play on Labor Day. I typically do not leave negative reviews, however the shape that this course is in warrants such a review. To be short about the course... to start, there is no starter on duty and the pro shop let a group of 6 locals tee off in between scheduled tee times of groups of 4. And that went just as you would suspect... slow. The whole course is in really rough shape. So, if this is your only choice then maybe, but otherwise find another course.

Beautiful lake view golf course

It is a beautiful lake view and hilly golf course. If you like to see nature life and it is a wonderful place for you. The elevation change is quite challenging in the back 9 holes. The length of golf course is longer, but the fairways are very wide and you won’t lose a lot of balls. The downside is The fairways is very hard.

Still good!

Had not played LV for quite sometime. I was actually quite impressed with the condition of the course although it does appear that the course could do with a little bit of water.Greens were quite lush and very slow though.
Some tee boxes required a nailgun to get a tee in the ground but STILL, very good value for money!.

Fairways are improved from all the rain this year. Many greens have bare spots and the tee boxes were rock hard. Overall, it is a four star layout with 2.5 star conditions.
