Everything about this course was great, except for the greens. Weeds have overtaken the grass around the fringe and skirt of the greens as well as on the green itself. Not worth the price tag.

Still a treat in Austin

I've reviewed Wolfdancer 3-4 times already and have given it 5 stars every time. As a few of the previous reviews mention, there is a bit of a poa outbreak at the moment, most notably around some green surrounds. I wouldn't say it affects golf shots, but it does just give the course a bit less of a polished aesthetic, so those paying the peak resort rack rate (which is the area's highest besides Barton Creek) might leave having expected more. But the gorgeous scenery is still the same and it's a rare course 'round here where you don't hear housing construction going on. That's why I come. I thought the greens rolled nicely and there were putts dropping all day in our group (humblebrag!). I saw a lot of crew members out there that day so I would expect that they'll have the course dialed in for summer. .

The staff couldn't have been better and the bev cart came early and often (which was needed!).

Pace and conditions sorely need attention

Based on reviews and friends who had played, I was looking forward to playing this course. The staff was excellent. The layout very good. Alternatively, the condition of the greens and around the greens were poor. Our t time was at 11:50. Then greens had not been mowed. There were patches of green implanted and lots of poa annua.sticking up above the surface which greatly affected the roll. There was an abundance of 3 inch tall poa annua around the greens. Our round was 5 and a half hours, No marshalling. Can`t go back.

What could have been

The layout of this course is truly above average...that is the highlight. The conditon of the course left a little to be desired. The greens had just been top dressed with sand (sure would have been nice to know that!) making them very difficult and untrue. The grass had not truly grown all the way in yet...not sure if that is a product of the time of year or what (although other courses in the area were fine). Staff her were just so so...not overly friendly.

Dont fall for the short par 4s.

Very fun layout with PLENTY of bunkers protecting every green. Played from the whites making couple of the par 4's drivable but must be accurate....I was not.

What you expect at a resort course

This resort has a nice welcoming feel to it. The drive into the resort is nice unto itself. The pro shop and restaurant are very nice. We had lunch there. The golf course is an excellent layout, great conditions, and very challenging. There are many elevation changes so pick the right tee box for your game or expect to be overwhelmed. There are many picturesque holes and the back nine or a at least the last 6 have that classic country club feel. Good luck!

Tricked Up and Overpriced

Mostly blind shots with no markers. You really need a caddy to tell you where the greens are. Lots of better choices.

Not worth paying that much.

Good:
Great fairways and greens.
Challenging course.
Bad:
Golf cart was very old. (Had to use both arms to turn the steering wheel)
Staff looked annoyed. (Check in )
No beverage cart available.
Landscaping crew did not care to stop working when teeing up or putting.

Great Course, Just Far Away

I played on a very hot and humid afternoon so there wasn’t much course traffic. The course is beautiful and it really feels like you’re out in nature. Every hole offers a different challenge, including elevation changes, blind tee shots, tricky greens. Luckily the cart GPS helped with those blind shots. It doesn’t feel like a resort course layout and you really only see the hotel on one hole.

Drinking water is abundant and the range before the round was nice. The greens were punched a few weeks prior so they were a bit bumpy but otherwise the course was in good shape for this time of year. The only downside is that it’s at least 45 minutes from downtown without traffic.

Great Course

We go down to Wolfdancer about twice a year and it never disappoints. Greens are coming in nicely, but a little slower than usual. Fairways and bunkers are in great condition. Staff is awesome.

What’s happened?

Wolfdancer is a good course no doubt about it. But no longer is this a top dollar course. Great facilities as always. Friendly staff. But let’s talk about the tees and greens. My word. The munis in Austin are in far better shape right now and for $100+ on a Monday I’d pass for the time being.

Greens and Tees Bad

Waterfalls for the Wolfdancer. First time playing the course, and wish the greens and tees were in better condition. Amazing course, 5 star layout and potential. Holes are memorable and beautiful. Plays fairly wide off the tee, but highly suggest playing up a box as approach shots are full of trouble. The greens and tee boxes were rough though. Greens were bare in spots and had sand over them trying to smooth them out. Tee boxes had been cut down, but unfortunately it looked as if many of them were completely bare of any grass. Both are playable, but can’t be compared to top conditions. Fairways, traps, and the rough are great. Overall, amazing course. 5 star layout. Serene scenery. Very playable but I hope the greens get in better condition by late summer.

Great Course, one of the best that I have played

The course is beautiful, challenging and extremely well maintained. I took my son there for his birthday. We had a super time, the staff was great, it turned out to be a great birthday present. I would recommend this course to you all. We will do it again.

Give the Greens a Few Weeks

The course and it’s setting are beautiful, and the layout is thoughtful. But the greens are pretty rough right now. They were *heavily* top-dressed, and the speeds were really inconsistent. I’m sure they’ll be better in a couple of weeks, but I’d hold off until then.
