Great course the price

Really love playing this course, its a challenging course which bad decisions can cost you big time. I’m a 14 handicap and can shoot in the 90 if not careful.

Interesting Layout - worth a trip

A friend invited me up for a Charity Fundraising Scramble, so I didn't see as much of the course as I perhaps might have, but this was an interesting course.

Only by logging on here to Golf Advisor did I realize that it was Robert Trent Jones designed. Thinking back you can see some of those design traits, long tee boxes, lots of big bunkers and use of ponds and the Salado creek that flows through the property. Several of the holes are quite open off the tee, but others are quite tight and a wayward tee shot would have you scrambling to make par.

The par 5s are interesting holes that wind through the trees and usually have a combination of creeks and bunkers guarding the green. If you're going to go for the green in 2, be well placed off the tee.

Plenty of dogleg par 4s as well that force you to think your way around the layout.

I understand green fees are $36, I think that is a very reasonable price to play here.

Course was excellent

Greens were in fantastic conditions. Fairways were the best I've ever seen. Keep up the great work.

Good, but ...

So excited to hear the third nine is almost open to the public. That said, there are some issues with the other 18; The bunkers are getting ragged. The pair at the 4th green had no rakes! Other rakes I saw and used had missing tines and splintered handles. This necessitates a 1-star downgrade for me. I'll be back, but any further degradation might drive me away.

Mill Creek - Salado, tx

They have modified the course, changing several holes. As a result, GPS does not work. They really need to fix this or at least add distance markers on the cart path.

Enjoyable round

The course is generally really good shape. Some of the greens on the front nine are starting to be problems with bare spots and browning grass. Other than that, a very good course.

Great course

We played the 2 nines that were open. Fairways in really good shape.! A couple of greens were being worked on, but didn't interfere with play at all. Same with a few tee boxes. The layout can be confusing, but the staff was very helpful navigating the course. I will definitely play again, hopefully the Third nine will be open soonZ

Best shape ever

I have been playing Mill Creek for over 30 years. I have never seen the course in better shape. He greens have been very poor in the past, but are in excellent shape now. Highly recommend this course. And looking forward to having all 27 holes available in the future.

My first time at Mill Creek

My two buddies and I had an excellent time at Mill Creek. We are all three members at Georgetown Country Club and were out for a change of pace. The Manager said the greens were in bad shape, but I thought they were in great shape overall. The fairways provided great lies. The only recommendation I would make would be more directional sings. We had to ask other players for directions to the next tee and to the clubhouse. The grill staff was excellent and the cheeseburger I had was very tasty. Good job to all.

Nice layout

It is a pretty course with lots of different shots required. Condition could be much better but clearly ownership is trying. Bought on GN for $25 so how is that not a deal. Lots of topo and worth the stop if travelling between Austin and Dallas. Look forward to playing again in next couple years to see improvements to condition
