The greens are a little bumpy and the wind is relentless.

Don’t forget to bring your bug spray! Big mosquitoes.

As a novice player, this course was fun and exciting. Some tight fairways, at least for us group of beginners, but the course was welcoming and not overly intimidating. Had a great time while being challenged on most holes. Would love to come back with a little more experience under my belt. Thought the course was maintained well despite recent weather conditions. Staff were great, timely and friendly. Some holes were swarmed by mosquitos depending on where your ball was laying so definitely go with your spray and lots of it. Overall great experience. Would do it again!

I played this course twice while on vacation. I feel the rate is high for the quality of this course. Austin has municipal courses which are compatible and more reasonable. I do like the lay out and the greens have improved. New carts and cart paths are a plus.

The course was doing cart path improvements during our round and should be fine when complete.

There was a sixome in front of us for the front nine so play was slow. They split up on the back. Unfortunately the winds were gusting to 30 mph on the day we played so some of the holes played long. The course was in decent winter shape. It is the only game in town and I would play it again. Overall a 3.5 Star.

The greens, fairways and cart paths are much improved over the last time I played this course 3 years ago. Green fees are too high for the quality of the course and the area in which it is located.

Course was in good shape for this time of year it's a good lay out and for $30 via golfnow it's a must play if you are in the area. My current concern is that I hear has been sold to a group of private individuals (40). I hope they don't raise the green fees or that they decide not to continue partnering with GOLFNOW. I can't afford $60 green fees.

Play here 3-4 times per month....love the course. It's very challenging from the blues. I especially like the lush fairways...ball sits up great for iron & fairway wood play. Tees & greens are very good also, but the fairways are what sets it apart. The wind always blows here, so you just have to keep from making a "big" number somewhere. The wind was blowing about 30. It's my favorite course in the whole "valley".
