I've played footgolf here over a dozen times and it's ALWAYS fun. Great course and price. They've also done a good job of keeping kickers and golfers away from one another.

First-time at Foot Golf

Very fun for a family. VERY HOT. maybe we will wait 2 months before we go again.

I do think they could consider making a 9 hole course, especially for younger kids. Would help them feel more successful and get through it faster.

Terrible golf course

It was not a very good course for the price we were charged to play there. $105.00 for nine holes for 3 players. Booked through Golfnow. It’s safe to say I will not be back.

Sharpen short game

Course is generally in good shape. No problem with check-in, carts, driving range or putting greens etc. a little hard to know the layout and distances the first time around. I did take a fall having stepped into a hole that was covered with grass on the apron of the second green. Maintenance may want to fill that in as I could have been hurt worse.

Pace of play was really slow. At one point, there was 4 groups waiting to tee off in the same hole.

None of the people on the course know golf etiquette, almost got hit by a golf ball on the first hole. The group didn't even warn that they were hitting right at us.

If you've never played golf before and you want to go out and play 18, this is the course for you!

A sweet course and fairly challenging

I played this course with my grandson because it’s kid friendly, I can get a cart and there’s no pressure from other golfers. About half the holes are very tight with tall rough. The greens are not bad. Fairways mostly a mix of Bermuda, Saint Augustine and weeds.
If you have kids or just starting out then it’s great, if not, I think you’d be happier one of the Austin Parks and Recreation courses.

Always challenging

The foot golf course is in great shape and never fails to challenge us. They’ve cleaned up the holes so they play truer than a before, and they always keep moving the tee boxes to change it up.

Pleasantly surprised, Good place for practice

I'd never played the 9-hole course here, only used the driving range and the three-hole pitch 'n putt. I'd even foot-golf'd here before but never pegged it. I live near Hancock, another 9-hole course of similar length, so I usually forget about this place. I'm glad I finally played it.

Comparing it to Hancock, which is about 2,400 yards vs. HPGC's 2,100, it's a tricky site to route a golf course thanks to Walnut Creek and other wetlands. I heard it flooded a few years ago. While the conditions are a step below the Austin munis, the greens here are faster and better to putt than Hancock (which has thick rye grass in the cool months and basically sand in the summertime).There are numerous sets of tees and with six par 3s you can give your mid-irons a workout. The 6th hole is long and narrow and requires a forced carry over the creek. It is no cakewalk.

I was the only one on the course on a weekday afternoon and played it twice, hitting tons of practice shots. I felt nice solitude and enjoyed the many bridges.

As the city of Austin debates Hancock's future, they are considering plans not all that different from what is already at Harvey Penick. And with Bluebonnet Hill closed for good, the east side needs this place more now. I plan to be back a lot this year to play both the 9-hole course and three-hole practice course.

Cheap

This course is cheap to play. The course is haggard to say the least. The greens are like a motocross track and impossible to play on. Because of the soccer ball golf, the course is all mismatched w Hole numbers. There are few yardage markers on the course and the score card is no help. The check in guy was great and very helpful. Trying to teach a kid on this course I would recommend bringing your own yardage scope, so they can figure out the distances on their clubs. .

Great staff. Poor course condition.

Very good staff. Good golf carts. Terrible greens. Overall two stars for being open in Covid 19 season and complying health requirements. Its still the worst golf course I've played.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are happy to hear that our staff was accommodating but we are sorry that your experience was anything less than 5 starts. The First Tee of Greater Austin, does not over-seed their greens so what seems like “dead greens” are actually dormant. The greens with sand on them are a result of us aerifying, we apologize if you were not notified about the aerification before your round. Our Superintendent is taking advantage of this unique time and the slow down of play to work on getting the course in its best possible shape. Please give us another try in May and you will certainly have better conditions!
