Austin's Bargain Great Course

Our twosome played Saturday morning 8/31/19. While a bit soggy from the pre-dawn summer sprinklers the course was in fine shape. The greens had healed from aerating some two weeks prior and rolled evenly and true. I expect next week they'll be really great. The bunker sand was first rate, thick soft smooth and well maintained. One complaint is that the sides of the bunkers needed work to remove the trailing grasses and some 6" to 10" shoots around the edges.. Just a maintenance oversight perhaps. No rain in the past week so no excuse there. They look ragged and I'm not sure that was the architect's intent. We had to literally step on the ball to find them in the overgrowth. The course layout within the forest is second to none. Can't possibly imagine Barton Creek is better, but I do know that at a third the price I'd choose Wolfdancer everytime over a $300.00 vanity club. Clubhouse staff, shop, restaurant and bar are all very nice and welcoming. 8.5 out of 10 and with a touch more attention to bunker detail and another week of green healing and dare I say they could easily be darn near a 10. Austin's Bargain Great Course.

The difficult cart steering caused extreme back pain

Steering the cart was so hard/problematic that by the 8th hole my back was throbbing and it got progressively worse. By the 10th hole, my back hurt so badly that I was unable to bend over without an extreme amount of pain. Hitting the golf ball became just an afterthought as the pain was too intense. I’ve used may carts in the past and this one was, by far, the worst. Is it a maintenance issue with this club or did I just get a bad vehicle?. The round was not enjoyable!!

Wolfdancer in late August

The course was in great shape and really have nothing but good things to say about the layout. The pace of play was horrible and on the last Par 5, there were 4 groups on the hole. It was 100 degrees and waiting was not what we wanted to do. We were stacked up on every hole from the 4th hole on.

We love the course but we never saw a Marshall to speed up the pace. I’ll be back when it cools down!

Must see and play course

First time playing Wolfdancer and it was fantastic. The layout is exceptional and extremely scenic with many challenges for any level of golf. The multitude of bunkers are well placed and come into play frequently. The greens roll true and were not overly fast but fast enough to not want be above the hole. Many beautiful views from this course and most of the holes are postcard material. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone that wants a serious challenge

Not worth the price

The green fee was $100+ and course conditions do not warrant asking this much. The tee boxes are unacceptable at this price plus greens and fringes are very spotty.

Good layout and would recommend at $50-70 but not more. Played 3 courses this week in the area, all cheaper with superb conditions.

Great golf course on amazing Texas resort property!

Wolfdancer is a top notch public golf course located just outside Bastrop, Texas. The terrain and course layout are beautiful. The course conditions: luscious rolling fairways, hill country red colored bunkers, excellent tee boxes, dramatic elevation changes, quick undulating greens and gorgeous Texas hill country scenic vistas make this course one of the best in the state. A must play...and the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort is top notch and a must visit destination as well.

Challenging but very rewarding

I was a bit hesitant to play here due to the price...but WOW I was impressed! It was my first time here and I was going solo, luckily got paired up with a group of guys that were very cool to play a round of golf with.
The little touches that make it feel like a country club we’re nice, but the course was the star of the shoe. Greens had a few (very few) patches in a couple of holes but understandably this time of year! They were rolling about 11 so nice pace and very true. The layout was very challenging from the back tees but was very playable for all from the multiple tees.
I will definitely spend more rounds here! I am actually considering a membership here, but the 45-60 min drive for me makes that a little tough to do.

Beautiful hill country course

About 30 minutes from downtown Austin is a gem of a course. Course was in great shape though the greens had been punched within last 12 days. Typical Arthur Hills resort course that follows the lay of the land which has great topo with very generous fairways. No housing on course and made it around in 3 hours on Memorial Day afternoon. Staff was very friendly and even helped me exit through a goofy entrance/exit gate that was not manned. It’s not Barton Creek but you don’t have to stay at resort to play and it’s a lot less expensive. Also probably gets less play than Barton Creek.

Love this course cut terrible conditions

I know the rain has been a lot lately but a few greens had mini bunkers on them. All the fringe and edges hadn’t been mowed. Bunkers were all wet and muddy
Grass wasn’t mowed. Have always loved this course and have played it for 10 years plus. Worst shape I’ve seen it

Such a shame. For $400 a night for a room the course should be immaculate

Come on guys

could have been better

from the get-go, appeared as though not much effort was put into the golf experience ...that said view others take on it... a wedding, on the course, was planned so staff may have been focused on that ...but... makes no excuse for the poor upkeep, in general, of the greens .... appears to me it was allowed to fall into disarray ....that stuff happens,,,seasons / too much rain / not enuff...whatever ! but, price one pays should reflect that, in my opinion

thus no real value in my opinion

Texas Hill Country golf

Great track with some great views of the Texas Hill Country. The native grass areas should be cut lower though. Good luck finding your ball in those areas and if you do, you can forget about getting a club on the ball. Miss the fairway by a foot and it's a penalty because you can't find your ball. Greens were okay but still a ways from great. All in all we had a great day on the golf course and I'll definitely come back.
