Place has gone downhill

Greens were not in good shape again and very slow. Either lower the rates or up the condition of the course. Was a ripoff

Overrated

Expected more for $79. Pace of play was awful, greens were slow and too soft.

It's not a bad course, but when ShadowGlen is $25 cheaper and has far better greens and course layout you'd be silly to play here for this price.

Well maintained course

I’ve golfed this course several times. Always well maintained with a nice layout. Not an exceptionally tight course and somewhat forgiving. Beautiful greens and great bunkers

The best place to play

I have over the years played every course north of the river in Austin. I keep coming back to Star Ranch for three reasons.
One. Value. Beautiful course, breakfast, lunch and another 18 holes all for 80 bucks.
Two. Course conditions. Always in top shape. True greens and beautiful fairways.
Three. The Staff. Everyone is super proficient at their jobs. From check in, the starter and the course marshals. Pace of play is monitored closely and slow players are politely asked to speed up.
Not surprising when you call Friday for a Saturday tee time they are all sold out.
Make the time and call earlier than you are used to.

Good value

Practice facility is very nice. Unfortunately the speed of the greens on the course are much slower than the practice green.

Playing Star Ranch is a Pleasure

Always a pleasure to play Star Ranch. The course conditions are always the best in the area. Hot today so play was light. Finished in under 3,1/2 hours and never had to wait.

Very Playable Course & All day golf

I play Star often and its always one of the go to course because of the week All Inclusive package on weekends. You pay your $80 and you get breakfast and lunch buffet, and you playbacks if they have availability in the afternoon. If you're looking for a full day of golf, $80 gets you just and and 2 meals. It's also a very playable course for all levels. The only downfall of this course is that it can play slow at times because is it popular for all levels.

Nice greens!

Great greens and fairways but no yardage markers on sprinkler heads or 150 yard zebra post which was kinda frustrating. Like Orville Moody used to say, "I gotta download a yardage app!"

Tee time complaint

I booked my tee time for 10:32am and showed the staff my email confirmation time/number. They had no tee time for me at that time and told me they could get me in at 10:45am. Completely ruined my experience and my guests. Completely unprofessional by golfnow and their booking. How can you offer tee times that don’t coordinate with the golf course?!?!?! I want a complete refund. Absolutely the worst experience I’ve ever had golfing.
