Fast true greens. Lots of undulations make tricky greens! Lots of traps. Need to think your way around this course and be able to make all shots. Not long but not easy to score on. Fun to play but Zane hour 15 from my house

Course was in good shape. Course had a members tournament before our time but owner is not Golf Now friendly. Absolutely no changes to time. We had to follow a Jack & Jill when we could have went in front. Extremely slow. Advice would be to check first before booking. Worth playing if pace is ok.

This course was very fun to play it is a very difficult course to play so be ready to get your butt kicked but it's awesome course and very good shape the staff has done a wonderful job fixing this course up my only complaints right now is there's no food and no water on the course the water was empty and there's no restaurant for food hot dogs only and that's it and it should have a better food quality there otherwise the course is very fun to play greens are fast hard to read but they're challenging and it's a great experience go play it I have played there many times since this course is open and this is the best shape I've ever seen it in

The course was in great shape but the greens were exceptional! Make sure to stay below the hole as it is very easy to 3 putt from above or beside. Best greens I have played on in a long time. Definitely would recommend this course to everyone!

what was once a "goat ranch" has been groomed into a high quality layout with perfectly groomed greens and fairways. Staff are friendly and helpful. Watch out for "good ole boys" groups- they may not let you through.(stay out of the bunkers,-they are NOT sand traps)

The course is in great shape. The scenic surroundings are a great bonus. Don’t like the sand they use in the traps but decided to avoid them. Service was slow in the cafe but all in all this course is a great value with friendly people and i have payed way more for courses far less challenging and in worse shape. The best part got through the round in 3 hours.

We got there way early to eat at the Lighthouse Country Club Restaurant, however was closed because their chef left. So we had to back track to get lunch. Unfortunately, no where we looked did they warn us their restaurant was closed.

That said, the course is in sterling shape everything was prefect. Absolutely a great course, lots of challenges, I will go there again in a heartbeat even though it is 42 miles away.

Was very impressed with the greens & fairways. Loved the layout and the staff was very friendly. Nice combination of rock, water, hills, open fairways and a few tight fairways. Would love to come back and play this course again. 5 stars for me. Keep up the good work!

Overall, it was a fun track. One would certainly benefit from a yardage book, as there are several tricky holes. The greens were faster than they look, having been punched a few weeks prior. Biggest downside - not much food. Kitchen was closed and the snacks were not good. Certainly eat before. Or stop at Opee's BBQ on the way back to Austin. That was the highlight of the day!! Yummy!!
