Course in good shape, slow greens

Course was fun and in good shape, only issues were slow greens but the speed was consistent and tee boxes need to be cut.

Two busy courses

I think that having a starter at the 1st tee would be a huge help.

Roy Kizer

Great value for the money with good practice areas. Range can get chewed up so if your just hitting balls get there early. Layout is links style and open. Greens are in good shape for the amount of play they get. Excellent staff, always feel welcome.

Unexpected Frustrations

Coolish and windy conditions today, so I was looking forward to a low demand turnout at one of my favorite Austin courses. The frustration stemmed from a lot of incomplete grounds keeping going on during my round. I was at least fortunate enough to have the course to myself, as expected. But, some of the greens were in substandard condition or had evidence of having been sanded earlier that morning. Some of the t-boxes, were in need of trimming, others were covered with clumped wet grass where they had been trimmed but not blown off. And many of the t-boxes did not have the t-blocks set which made the par 3s in particular a bit awkward.

In great shape after muni summer closure

Haven't played Kizer all year and this was my first round in Texas in about two months after going up north for a little bit. The turf conditions were excellent. Probably the best I've ever seen Kizer, and it makes sense considering the munis were closed for over a month due to COVID. Bunkers are not being maintained all that well even though there are rakes in them now. I typically gravitate towards Jimmy Clay, Mo Willy and Lions over Kizer (especially when it's hot - there is no shade out there), but I like to play it once or twice a year.

Fun Round

The course was in good condition, very hot, but it’s Texas in August; however, not having drinking water available on the course was difficult. Plan accordingly.

Great condition and fast play!

Roy Kizer was in great condition and everyone was playing fast. We started at about 5pm (sun goes down at 8:30) as a foursome and we finished all 18 comfortably! It’s a great course layout and is well maintained (even bunkers probably by the staff) during the pandemic.
