Super nice!

Great spot for a weekday round. Pace is great. Everything very nice and great value. Pace slows down to a trickle on the weekends so go prepared if you play then.

Great Day of Golf

Okay, I wrote after a Sunday debacle of overbooking, and slow play, that the course was not that enjoyable. I mentioned I would try to go during the week. Well that is a BIG difference as we all know. Perfect day of weather, and the course had numerous groups I could see, but I never waited. I thoroughly enjoy this course and staff. I would recommend giving it a try. The greens were in great condition for this time of year, Some landing areas in the fairway were a bit roughed up, mainly due to players not filling divots with the provided sand. Why is that? Just lazy? Thanks to those who take the time to repair their damage. Curses to those who don't..

still like the course

Pace of play was terrible. 5 hour round and gave up at 15 to head home. Better things to do than stand in line at tee boxes. Course apparently was overbooked, but it was a beautiful day and golfers were out of their shells... Still love the course and the staff, just burning 5 to 6 hours for a round won;t work. I'll book again, but try the weekdays.

HoHum

The greens were hairy, and incredibly inconsistent. Given the time of year I’ll concede maybe they aren’t cutting the greens every day, but $75-80 for a round...I’d expect the greens to be that kind of value. Play started really slow, we were looking at a 5 hour round on a day that was cold & windy. With a north wind all the difficult holes were compounded because they’re hard enough already. It’s a great course & I’ll play it again, but for a premium price I’m anticipating better.

Nice Course

I usually play other courses in Austin and have always wanted to get out at Falconhead.

I finally did and it was worth it. Nice hill country course in excellent condition. Played the Blue tees and it was challenging but fair. Wide course lined with woods and not nomes so if your offline you have a chance to recover.

I look forward to my next round.

Slow play

High school tournament ahead of took 4:40. Kids should be penalized for slow play to learn early it costs strokes. Bad habit to learn young.

Nice Course

First time playing the course... I was lucky enough to be paired with a great couple that were members. Their helpful tips made the round much more enjoyable. I found the course to be fun, and challenging.

Nice layout and good golf course

Falconhead is one of the best public options in Austin. It’s not the cheapest course and a lack of high quality options in the immediate area allows for green fees to be on the high end. With that said the layout is great with fantastic views of the area from most holes. The course was in good shape and has a nice mix of holes to it. Tight tee shots mixed with more open landing areas on a few holes. The 7th hole stands out as an interesting drivable par 4 and the 8th is a definite photo opportunity with 1/3rd of the green hanging off of a cliff. Certainly recommended if you are playing in Austin.

One of the better courses in Austin

The only fault I find is the poor quality of sand in the traps. Otherwise it is great. Really like the ice in the cart cooler and the plug in for your phone. Will definitely play this course often.
