Great course / Small Greens

Overall Plum Creek is a great course. Upon arriving you the practice area. Great set up with a range, putting greens, and around 5 different pins to chip around. You are able to chip as far as 80 yards. Great area to prep your short game.

First time player at Plum so the course was a bit tricky. The greens are tight and firm. You have to be spot on to keep it on the putting surface. Most greens held true but a few had some rough patches. The course is not long except for one par 3 over 200 yds. Some tee boxes needed work as well.

Overall, I had a great time and would recommend the course. $55 is a little steep but it was Sunday morning.

Great Twilight Round

Twilight rate started at three and got to enjoy some great Texas golf weather in October.

Staff in the clubhouse were neither friendly or unfriendly.

The course was in fantastic condition on all 18. Definitely on the nicer side for the amount I paid for a round. The course didn't play too long (6900 yards from the tips), but the greens were pretty challenging. The pace of play was decent enough.

My only gripe is the amount of construction going on next to the course. I realize that this isn't the course's problem, but it certainly isn't desirable to play 4-5 holes next to an army of construction workers using jackhammers and bulldozers. This won't stop me from coming back.

Not worth the money

Looking to hold a tourney there and after a very unfriendly interaction ~2weeks ago with the pro, asking to get us on for a site visit and tourney talk, we just made a 630 am tee time on our own. Got there at the 6.

Totally dark in parking lot,not lit up area. Almost tripped over a curb sticking out. Pro shop was open.no welcome was told " hold I m not ready yet" he had to get his system up . Paid 54.00 green fee and 10 bucks for a small bucket. $64.00!! No cart yet, asked if we could get a taco n coffee,"not open yet" range was a dog track,hardly any grass. Tee d off and every hole I d say was 2/3 s ok rest had bare spots in the fairways.

We get to the back and most fairways are standing water from the sprinklers going off. Horrible. Lost interest by about 14 and limped in. It s about a $40-45 dollar course at best. Needless to say we won t be returning nor won t consider plum creek for any tourney.

Texas course!

Overall I really enjoyed the course and all of the challenges it had to offer. Just like every course you will play in Texas there is going to be a lot of wind but the course is wide enough that the ball shouldn't get away from you. Texas State University has their practice facilities here and the they are very nice, as are the facilities for the everyday golfer.

nice course just outside austin

saw a few commercials for plum creek while watching golf channel and decided to check it out. played late on a saturday so it was pretty dead out there since it was over 100 degrees. the course was in pretty good shape. the greens were nice. overall, the course is pretty straightforward and not that tough. there are a few holes where trees really come into play, but more holes are pretty open. the most unique thing about this course to me was the par 5s. i recall at least 2 of them requiring you to layup off the tee unless you are confident enough to carry the ball 230. so even though they are fairly short for par 5s, they are still 3 shot holes. i liked that. if you live in central or south austin this course is worth the drive. it's not going to be the best course you've ever played, but it's solid and a great way to expand on what are pretty limited options for quality public courses in the city. it's worth checking out.

Middle of the road in the Austin area

There are a lot of options in the Austin area, especially semi-private subdivision courses built in the late 1990s/early 2000s when the golf boom really took off in Central Texas. Plum Creek has a hard time standing out in my mind, but the pluses of it are that there is a little more room off the tee than some other Hill Country layouts, though there aren't many memorable holes. It does have a great practice area and driving range, so I'd probably come here often if I lived closer. For the money though, I would probably stick to munis like Roy Kizer or Mo Willy instead.

Complete 360

I am partial because I saw this course when it was a horrible. The course was dried out, overgrown grass (even when you hit a good shot, you had the chance of losing your ball), unkept greens. The new staff has done a fantastic job of making this a real golf course. It is still long from the tips and forces you to use every club in your bag. I play all around town and this course is becoming as nice as Avery Ranch or Teravista. If you live south, get out and play.

Good for the area

The driving range was a dirt patch but the putting green was nice and they did have a chipping area. It is a rather simple course but if you play the tips it would be a challenge, makes it really long. Did not like the fact I had to but a yardage book just to see the layouts of the holes since they were not on the scorecard but they said they are fixing that. If I had someone visiting I would take them there to play but at the same time I wouldn't brag about it either as a must play.

One of the few options for this area.

It helps if you've played the course before as a few of the holes feel blind in that you can't quite see where your ball is going to land because of a downhill dropoff or trees/bushes that obstruct your view. You might feel more confident in your shot selection by already knowing the layout. You'll only have a couple of carries over a creek or large pond and there certainly aren't too many bunkers. All in all it's a pretty basic course. Conditions are often on the dry side here. Maybe it's water and/or money issues. Maybe it's just the type of soil and vegetation. And finally, when they warn you about watching for rattlesnakes -- take them seriously. They'll often tell you if there have been any recent sightings. My brother just about stepped on a baby one that was curled up and sleeping in the grass right next to the cart path at a tee box. So be careful running off into the high grassy areas to find that mishit ball. Even that so-called snake club you're carrying may not give you the protection you need.
