Course needs to be marked better. Only hole with a yardage marked outside of 150 is #17. No indicators of where the pins are located. A pin sheet or color coded flags would be great. Course was in fantastic shape. The greens were phenomenal and the guy in the pro shop was great.

Love this course. For the money they have done a great job creating interesting well designed holes. It's location makes it a must play if you are in the Horseshoe Bay area. Highly recommend it for a course in this price range.

I like everything about this golf course. Staff is affable, laid back, and extremely accommodating. Course itself is always at/near peak playability for the season. Greens can be TREACHEROUSLY fast at times, so be cautious, especially early in your round. Several memorable holes. Track has quite a bit of character, absolutely worth playing more than once.

Worth the drive from Austin in my opinion, especially when it’s at/near peak condition. Would cost twice as much if it were 20 miles from ATX instead of 60.

We had a tee time that in all honesty my group and I had completely screwed up through GolfNow. When we got to the pro shop the assistant was having quite a difficult time taking care of the situation. The owner of the club happened to be there and he jumped right in and took over the process and took care of us without issue. It was great to see true customer service at work! Love the course and thank you for wanting our business. It's nice to see in today's world.
