Fun layout

The bad: The greens were in very bad shape and were not consistent. There were massive dead spots on every green (Do not hit one of those spots with a chip) Some of the greens were very slow while others were much faster.
The fairway grass was too long. Basically, every lie in the fairway was a flier lie meaning you couldn't spin the ball to stop it on the greens.

The good: The layout is good if a bit short. There are a lot of interesting holes and you will be called upon to hit a variety of shots. There are some truly magnificent views around the course.

Other stuff: I was encouraged to not walk the course, but I definitely could have. There are some holes (15) that will tax you if you walk, but it wouldn't have been too bad.

Overall, for only paying $20 it wasn't a terrible course, but I did find myself getting frustrated at hitting what I thought were good putts and watching them come up several feet short or blast past the hole because the greens were different speeds.

Great layout, lousy greens

Most if not all the greens were in very poor shape. Dead grass, sand and dirt. I understand that they are determining whether to spend in excess of 1 mill to redo the greens.
The fairways, tee boxes etc were in excellent condition.
The layout and views of the countryside are beautiful.

Meh!

The layout is good. Challenging at times but a lot of fun. However, the greens are terrible and the pace of that play is horrid. The 19th hole is nice with good food. Emotional roller coaster with you walking away saying meh!

Layout of the course was good and the scenery was very good..Tees and greens were full of fungus especially the greens...
Putting was the worst greens were black and and looked as if mud caked the surface it’s also as if they set it on fire to burn off the fungus...
Very rough greens with sand and fungus ruined the game playing ...
Will likely never come back and I play often with travels between Chicago and Austin area...

If you are a serious golfer, do not play here

If you’re trying to improve your game or even keep score seriously for that matter, go somewhere else. The cheaper green fees (relatively) are tempting to jump at but the greens and tee boxes and many parts of the fairways are abismal.

Disappointing experience - will not be back this year.

Cow Pasture

Was told the greens were not in great shape. This was a major understatement. I was not told that the tee boxes and fairways were also very bad. Lots of work needs to be done. Early conditions? Maybe. But I can say if I had paid more than $25 I would've been very upset. Course layout not bad. It may have been good in the day but I can tell you that this was likely the worst conditions I've ever experienced on any golf course, period.

Greens or Mine Field?

Fun course with a challenging layout, made even harder by bumpy and uneven greens made it very frustrating. The views are amazing and even stunning, but the hour drive from downtown isn’t helped when compared to course condition. If it was in better shape, I might play more often. Instead I’ll play at the local goat track

Course review

The course isn't in terrible condition, but it isn't good either. The greens are beat up and battered one section was even closed off. The pace of play was bad, but its expected for the weekend. This is a great you get what you pay for situation, but the views on the course are stunning above the lake and on the hills. It is a challenging course for sure, but it is fun for sure other than putting on the greens. Not really an issue, but the gentleman who helped me today wasn't friendly at all and said "he'd never play on the weekends and good luck getting through 18". I didn't understand the comment because there are a lot of courses to play in the area and I can go to a different one if you don't want business I guess. Kinda weird if you ask me

Nice Day on the Course

I really enjoy playing this course. They were busy on a Saturday morning but the course marshals are really good. Fairways in better shape. They still have a few rough greens but good experience.

Awful greens

I would have never played this course if I knew the greens were that bad. Mostly packed dirt. Got an honorable mention for one of the better courses in Austin on a webpage. I don’t know what year that was.

Great time!!

We try and play a different course every time we go to Austin, so we chose Lago Vista--about an hour drive for us, but well worth it. Beautiful course, there were some spots that had no grass, but I feel confident that the course will overcome the winter weather. Greens were challenging, which we like.
Great time, will go back!!
