Hill Country Golf Club offers three nines, all of which sprawl across 200 scenic acres of Texas Hill Country. The terrain is provided with rolling meadows and steep hillsides dotted with tranquil lakes and ponds that come into play throughout the 27 holes. The Oaks Nine is named for the towering oaks that blanket the course. From wooded ravines to tree-lined fairways, this nine is a demanding test of accuracy. There are strategically placed bunkers and water comes into play on a few holes. The courses, which were designed by well-known architectural firm Arthur Hill & Associates, have received praise from both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine.

If you can stay on the fairway, you will have a short iron to the green. It makes it more injoyable when your putting for birdies more often.

First time playing at Hyatt hill country and was very impressed. Course is in great shape, greens roll true, and price was right with GolfNow. My only complaint was slow pace of play, we were a 2some and ran into a slow 4some on 7. They never let us through despite still sitting on the tee box most holes when we pulled up and on 2 holes the 3some behind us was pulling up as they were driving away. Didn’t see a marshal the entire round, would have been nice to cut 30 mins or more off the round. Frustrating but still a great round.

This course was beautiful, and is really a fantastic depiction of the Texas Hill Country meeting golf. This course, however, is extremely challenging. just when you think you have a great drive, bam, you're behind an oak tree in the center of the fairway. the rough was pretty difficult to locate golf balls in, and the greens were sanded, so they were a little speedy. Oaks and Lakes were the courses played that day, and the layouts were great. For the price, i'd absolutely play the courses again, i just know now to play smarter, and really consider my golf shots.

I took advantage of a Hot Deal and the cost was reasonable. The pace of play was excellent--a Saturday morning and we rarely even saw the group ahead of us, and no one was nipping at our heels. The course conditions were very good. The greens were a mystery--lots of subtle breaks I couldn't see. NOT a course for walking. The layout of the three nines means long distances between a green and the next tee. I would play here again, but only on a discounted rate. If I had paid the full-freight I would have been disappointed in the experience.

This just not be labeled as a “resort course”. The course which I last played 10 years ago was in horrible shape. The Hyatt should be embarrassed.

It was mostly on the Oaks. I wish I had taken pictures. A lot of weeds around the course and dead spots around and on the greens. It look like the Oaks greens hadn't been mowed. Piles of dead grass clippings in the fairways. terrible pace of play 12:40pm- 6:20pm 5 &1/2 hours. We never saw a marshal. Very Disappointing, I wouldn’t have thought the Hyatt would let something like this happen to a course with their name on it. It was like the course was having financial problems and cut back on maintenance. I really feel bad about writing this but it is what it is and I wish we hadn’t played there, I have played it before and it was in great shape. I'm sure I will play it again, but I will call the pro shop and ask what type of shape it is in.
