Holes were not numbered. Grass to short or not any grass on greens and fairways. Not enough water.

Sanded Greens and Rude Pro Shop Lady

Generally, I like this course, but they had just sanded the greens that morning, and they didn’t make mention of that before I showed up. Not cool. They were terrible. I also played with a member who thought he was funny, but was just an A.H. with his incessant degrading remarks about his partner’s play, and mine at times. Maybe it had something to do with the flask he kept hitting at 11am. Also, I may join this club someday (as my wife and son grow interest in playing as well), so I WANT to like this club, but I get a very pretentious vibe from the pro shop half of the time I’m there. The guy was great, but the woman in there was curt at best. They need to step it up.

I felt appreciated.

I think this place is a gem. I felt welcome in a place I am not a member. Even the other golfers were plesent. I had to leave early as my daughter got ill and needed me. Brett Garret is a class act, he is the assistant golf pro and he made all the difference. I will be back sooner than later, looking for a home and membership in Onion Creek someday.

Private course but open to public by using the app

Needs better signage through the course and hard to find the clubhouse. No map on the tee card and they have a strict NO denim policy.

Must Play

In the Austin area, so played a round at Onion Creek. While fairways in TX are dormant this time of year, course played well. Greens rolled true, bunkers were perfect and pace was great (3.5h).Played w couple of members that made me feel right at home. Staff was very accommodating. Can't wait to go back in late spring.

I'm flying in from Manhattan, KS to play on Friday, is the course green or is everything dormant?

Worth It! Great Course

This is a fantastic layout. Former Senior PGA tour course. The course isn't in top-notch quality, but it's still totally worth $75 or less to play. I can usually get on for about $45 in the afternoon, and it's a no-brainer compared to Grey Rock or Plum Creek. It's an older course, so it has lots of mature trees that adds to the character. FYI I typically spend about $50 to play, scratch golfer, and play once per week.
