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 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.

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?

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.

Great course with alot of history. Not long, maybe not even 6500 from the tips. Compensates my being super tight. My personal record for OB shots off the tee. Greens were fairly nice- fast downgrain very slow against. I'd play again for sure.

Played the tips - relatively short course, but still very challenging, reminiscent of something like Winged Foot. The course is in tremendous shape. This was my second time playing the track, and I'd play it again in a heartbeat.

I played as a single on Mother's Day, and finished in a bit less than 4 hours! I thought that was speedy for a Mother's Day Sunday, even though I've never played this course. Loved the condition; and thought it was quite challenging. (I played from the tips.) Greens were very nice, and not super hard to read. . . But in the heat and wind, they definitely got faster as the round progressed.

Everyone one was very friendly including the members we talked with. Driving range grass was sparse and balls were old but at least it was someplace to warm up. You can tell at one time this was a top notch golf club but time has taken its toll on it.

With that being said we started off our round at a nice leisurely pace and then we ran into four members who would not let anyone go through. One could not walk up the greens and the place came to a halt. Made for a long, long back side but still a pleasant place to play golf. If not for the slow play we would have loved it.I'm pretty sure we were just unlucky on that day and normal play is fine.

The course is a 50.00 course not 70.00 but it was a great layout and fun to play.

I love playing this course. It's always in great shape. I enjoy the layout with rolling hills and wide fairways. Old school design. Staff is always friendly. We teed off at 3:18 and only saw a few other people on the course. Took our time and easily played in four hours! Wish I could play here more.
