Excellence

Love this course, such a great layout compared to other public courses in the area and challenging too which I love to see. Greens are rolling perfectly as well, course conditions were surprisingly good for this time of the year. Pace of play can get slow on weekends but what do you expect at a public course on weekends

Loved what they've done with the place

Hadn't been here since summer; wow this place has improved. New carts, clubhouse and pro shop are clean and look as good as they ever have, and new management and staff really creates a great experience here. The changes also extend to the course, various trees have been removed and trimmed and another tee box added to make course more playable. All the members here are awesome as well, will be making this my home course from now on,

Best Value in Town: Confirmed

Heard this place was a great value and it does not disappoint. Such a nice and refreshing atmosphere with the young staff. Course layout is excellent great mix of easy/difficult holes and the greens were rolling phenomenally, loved that there are five tee boxes as well; makes things fun when you have golfers of all different skill levels in your group. I will definitely be back here, probably to purchase a membership.

No starter

What I wanted was to play a round on Sat and that I did. Your starter quit and there was huge delay off the tee box #1. Every single tee box was a wait. Took close to 5 and half hours for my round. You guys gotta figure this out! Terrible round!!

Consistently delivers

Pace of play was terrible, but what can you reasonably expect the day after Christmas? Never disappointed with the layout, set up or conditions at Shadowglen. One of my favorite Austin area tracks, and the best value in town.

Very impressed

First time at course, had heard good things from a friend. Very impressed, bar girl was friendly and pro shop was well stocked. Cart was clean and course was in great shape, definitely a challenging layout but with multiple tee boxes very playable for average joe

Definitely Renewing Membership for 2020

Hadn’t been out there in a few months and hardly recognized the place. Pro shop looks the best it ever has and clubhouse is as clean and well decorated as it’s ever been—For awhile you could really sense this place was low on cash as you were in the clubhouse but no more. It’s also nice to not have to check in at the bar anymore. Course looks incredible for this time of year, and the new tee boxes really make this course more fun for a lot more people. Heard they’re getting new carts in soon as well, I look forward to that.

Best value in town

Title says it all. Course is challenging and in great shape, and they’ve recently put in a new tee box to make the course more suitable for seniors as well as taken down some trees that were a nuisance before.

Additionally they have a wide range of membership options that are a great deal. The staff is friendly and they’re working hard to improve the place.

Only going to get better!

This place just keeps getting better

I have played here for the past few years and have always appreciated the course, and the friendly staff. This course is the best value in the Austin area without a doubt, and now that they have a new general manager and employees everything is improving: course conditions, a greatly expanded selection of merchandise in pro shop, clubhouse, practice area.They are getting new carts in before end of the year which will improve the experience, they have taken down trees to make the course more playable, and added new tee boxes

Interesting design

Played this course while visiting Austin from the east coast. Really enjoyed the front 9 which is played through the hills and natural terrain, much different then Courses back east. The back nine is more open and a fun change. The staff was very friendly and helpful, I will be back.

Can’t say anything negative. Great value. Really good layout and choice of tees. Grill room is comfortable and not trying to be fancy. Great staff made the day for us. Definitely on the courses to return to list

Shadow Glen Is Getting Even Better

have been a member of the ShadowGlen Golf Club for over two years. In those two years, significant strides have been made to improve the course and customer relations. First, the course in phenomenal shape and I have seen a magnificent change from when I first started playing at ShadowGlen. Two weeks ago, the course hired Kirk Lohmann as the General Manager. A dedicated pro who understands the inner workings of golf business. This allowed Grant Hutchinson to focus on the course development and Kirk work on the business at hand. In a short two weeks I have seen significant change in the pro shop, the course and customer service. Eric Loll and beverage cart ladies are making strides to bring customer service to a new level. The course?….well its AWESOME! Significant changes on holes 6 and 7 are more golfer friendly and I believe more things are to come! Tee boxes are redone and replaced for faster pace of play. You must come out and see this course now! The prices are competitive to any course in town! Great job ShadowGlen!

Nice course

Course was good. The front 9 is tougher then the back 9. Be prepared to play into the people in front of you though! The Marshall was a little too uptight for me. Nobody out there is playing for their PGA card. They need to relax and let people enjoy what they have paid for
