Very challenging 9 hole Hill Country gem

Wasn’t sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Fantastic little course. Some very challenging par3 holes in the 190 range. Lots of elevation changes, some blind shots, deep bermuda off the fairways, and woods off of some of the fairways. Only 1 par 5 and mostly par 4’s. I did better the first 9. Nice carts, well maintained, friendly staff, and met several very friendly golfers. Well worth the time to play this one. Would challenge very good golfers. Lots of wildlife.

Walked

Basic, charming community course

I told myself the next time I was in HSB I would venture off to see Blue Lake. It's the antithesis of the championship resort courses and Escondido, and it's also just $12 to walk nine holes, so it's a great option if you lack the combination of time, money and access for those.

I walked it in about 70 minutes. The land is pretty rolling and many of the greens are elevated. They are basic, just generally small circles in shape. Deer galore on a fall evening. If you play the blues you'll have quite a few 175- to 190-yard shots. I suspect it's a place supported almost entirely by neighborhood residents. Glad I stopped in.

Blue Lake Golf Now Special

Wonderful weather, fairways and rough dormant, greens very small but very soft. Challenging short course, small greens hold very well. Great little course to work on iron game. 2nd time playing the course, Saturday Special pricing can't be beat. Will play again !!

Short game needed.

Nice little course tucked away by horseshoe bay that has some great deer to keep you company. Course is challenging and has a lot of slopes and hills requiring some great shots, short game must be dead on to hit par. Great course for the price and staff was friendly and not pushy, even told us where to put the cart key when done.

Quick and cheap

At the price you probably cannot beat the deal. The course was in seasonal change so it was a little rough. A good cheap way to kill a few hours. a good course for a beginner that wants more than a par 3 course but is not up for a full size course

Excellent Short Course

Hidden treasure. Short course, narrow fairways and small greens = you must have a really good short game. Most approach shots are 6, 7 or even 9 or pitching wedge for long ball hitter. You must be accurate with your short game. Green a bit slow but hold the ball well.(Go play a round a see).

Very nice 9 hole course!

Short course, great if you want to get in a quick 9 or 18. Hidden away. Greens are small, so you have to be accurate.

Not as easy as you think...

With very tiny greens and 3 par 3's at 185 yards plus it's a challenging short course. The good news it's hard to lose a ball, the bad news is you might have a 130 yard shot on a side hill lie to a penny size green. Not to be taken for granted. Enjoyed a bunch with very fast pace of play and friendly staff.

a good challenge for me.

This course was in good shape. It's in the hills so it has a lot of lies that are above or below the your feet. Also, a lot of trees come into play.
