Need a course marshall and not allow groups more than 4
Pace of play was ridiculously slow. The time of day that i tee’d off (1:14pm) made my round miserable with the amount of time that i had to wait to hit each shot. No marshall ever seen. Multiple parties with 5 people. Love this course though and will play again. Will plan for earlier tee time next time.
Friday AM Great Pace
Great pace, good value. My 2-some teed off at 8:17 AM and finished in 3.5 hours. Had a single behind us on the front and we followed him on the back. Passed the Ranger twice, and that is about all the traffic we saw. It turned out to be 103 degrees that day, but we were off the course before the heat and home by noon.
Shadow is always a good choice for a reasonably priced golf course but I have to be honest it seems to have gone downhill this summer. Yes, the greens were aerated and bumpy which is totally understandable (FYI I would not play here until after 8/21). My concern is the overall course. The fairways are seeing clumps of crabgrass pop up and the transition from fairway to rough is unclear. The sandtraps barely have any sand.
All in all, I will try to make it back out later in the year but this time around it was a lackluster round.
Great value, course in excellent shape. Greens soft and rolling good. Sand traps could use some care but just minor work. Very enjoyable round.
Decent course, but not as nice as others in the area
Fairways have a lot of dry spots and I've never played a sub 4-hour round here. Better to go to Teravista, star ranch, Avery ranch, etc.
Good time, Right Price
First time playing ShadowGlen this past weekend.... Bring PLENTY of water, not much shade on this course at all. Course is in good condition but needs Hole markers with distance at each hole. The back 9 is very enjoyable, with water hazards. Until the weather cools off, i advice an early or late tee time, but all in all a fun and worthwhile Central Texas course.
A busy course that could due with spacing out the tee times a bit more. Front 9 plays slow as it is difficult. Some small ravines and creeks to keep an eye out for when you’re playing. Overall a solid course for the $40-$60 range.
Good value for money
The greens and fairways were in very nice shape considering our heat. They seemed to be doing quite a bit of watering. My only complaints would be... They had not manicured the sand bunkers (shaping and grass trimming) and the secondary rough was was too high to the point that you could lose your ball right off the green. They just needed to mow!
Best Golf Value in Central Texas
Okay, I haven't played every course in Central Texas, but I've played many of them and this course puts most others to shame when it comes to value. Fine amenities, friendly staff, country club feel and a beautiful, challenging, but fair, Hill Country course. Fairways, bunkers, tees and greens all in good shape. Though east of Austin, it's more like Avery Ranch than Bluebonnet. Hills, lakes, bunkers, woods and streams, but designed to be fair. The twilight rate is a steal.. Well worth the drive even if you live in west Austin. Highly recommended.
I'd like for this course to stay the way it is.
Because i play during the week and its never crowded.
I played this weekend and it wasnt crowded either.
Maybe its too hot.
But i love that its not crowded.
I'm writing this review because the people who manage the course deserve a shout out.
i'm amazed the greens are in such good shape.
I play many courses around Austin and these Greens are on par with the high dollar courses.
Morris Williams greens are unplayable.
But Shadowglenn is doing a great job keeping this course in great shape....especially considering they are not thst popular.
I'm sure as Manor grows the course will get busier, but i like it just the way it is.
I play there once a week and I'm a better golfer for it.
Its a tough layout.
Water and Hills.
But it challenges me.
Love this course
