Hot deal only.

Fairways are brown and dry, they have some drainage issues with standing water in some spots, greens are in good shape. Good value for the “hot deal” pricing I received through Golf Now but not worth it for Falconheads normal fees.

Demanding Course

What can you say!! I chipped in for birdie on number eight. Great course! Very challenging from any tee. I always enjoy playing here. Every chance I get. Especially nice in spring when nature adorns the landscape with new growth. What a delight!

Negative changes with new management

Course is under new management that has little concern for members. They are making many changes to the course...narrowing fairways, letting the rough grow higher, over watering fairways (their contract with the water district requires that they pump a minimum of grey water each day), etc. The rough is so deep that it is difficult to find your ball even if only one yard off the fairway, greatly slowing play. Even when it hasn't been raining, they overwater several fairways and many areas are soggy. Prior management watered in waste areas rather than the fairways. Because of the wet/soft fairways, your drives no longer run out...it is as if you are hitting a wedge with every shot as your drive frequently stops only 5 feet beyond it's landing spot. If you are not a low single digit handicap player, the course is no longer fun. Most golfers will struggle on this course the way it is now formatted. Monthly membership dues were more than doubled, some increased as much as 250%. Membership is no longer a good value.

Nice track but punched greens

Falconhead is always a solid experience. The staff is always welcoming, starters know what they are doing and the beverage cart is around often enough.

Today’s round could have been better and here’s how.

The pin placement on the starter station said 2, it was 3 (easy enough to figure out); we were told scatter, front nine was posted as 90 and the back at cart path only, we made decisions by hole. The greens were punched and we didn’t know in advance. Great track and not my first time there, I’ll be back but hoping for some upside

Solid track

Solid track with impeccable fast greens, mostly solid tee boxes and fairways with little run. For all the long up hill par fours, the next was a short par four. Play with strategy and you’ll play well. Play without and the course will win. Greens run true, faster than most but watch the hole...it’s easy to lip out. Enjoy the 8th hole. Probably the best par 3 in all of the Austin area.

Fun day

Got off early from work and wanted to get out for a quick round. The round took a little over 3 hrs, course in great condition.....just an enjoyable round. It helps that I was playing well but this is certainly a challenging course from any tee.

Aerated Greens

I love Falconhead. Just was a challenge because the greens were aerated and pave was crawling.

Thank you for playing Falconhead with us. Although it is a disruption in playing conditions, aerification is necessary to maintain the conditions for the standards we set. Our website is always available to check our aerification schedule.

Sometimes our pace of play could be 4 hours or less, however the weekends might be more than that because of the amount of play. We still attempt to get all rounds in by 4:20. Thanks again.

Falcon head Review

This course is top notch challenging for any golfer. The greens are smooth and roll fair and when I played it was windy witch made it a little more interesting. The signature par 3 is beautiful as is the whole experience.
