Lions is a sweet course. I've played here a bunch of times in my five years living in Austin. I was in the golf business for a long time before I moved to Austin, and Lions does as much as they can with the resources they have. That being said, as far as Golfnow is concerned I feel as though I got jipped because they charged $10.00 more than the rate at Lions and I was stuck paying that extra amount. They should not be allowed to overcharge because the whole business model is to get you "the lowest price available". Not happy about that. Call me cheap, but I am a full-time med student now and need every penny I can save.

Lions is always a bit challenging for me. A few holes just psych me out, so it's good to come back and try to do well.

I like the course layout, with its angles and hazards. It's a nice blend of straightforward holes and slightly trickier ones. Some holes tempt you to "go for it" when a smarter lay-up strategy might actually work better.

The greens were in nice shape and could be quick with subtle slopes on some of the greens. The fairways were tight (typical Texas turf), but the rough is rocky or bare ground; as always, fairway accuracy is rewarded.

The clubhouse is nice, the staff helpful and friendly enough. The snack bar is good. The range is minimal.

There's a lot of history here. Check out http://www.savemuny.com/legends-of-lions.html

Though I did have a good time playing with a cool dude, the pace has been killing me. Four groups waiting for the fifth group in front to get going. Clean the green please.

Have not played Lions in about 10 years. Greens are super slow. Not nearly in as good of shape as Jimmy Clay or Roy Kizer. The holes are short. No need to hit driver very often. Easy layout for higher handcapper or someone who likes slow greens.

This golf course was built in 1929, not too much has been redesigned I don't think. It is a good old course, easy walk. It is usually pretty slow but somehow there was not anyone in front of me and the guy I got paired with so we played a 3 hour round, maybe cause it was Tuesday morning? Good round and good course. This is not a country club but you can have a good time.

I really like older courses with tree lined fairways and smaller greens. This course is a perfect example. the one negative is the slowness of the greens. if they could speed up the greens, I would give it an excellent rating.
