A bit of a surprise I must say....

We always play here and the greens are just superb. The Hot Deal was awesome, less than $30 per player on a Sunday. You can’t beat that. But the greens were horrible to their standards. Now let’s be fair here, it’s transition time. When greens go from dormant or slightly over seeded to spring and growing season a superintendent has responsibilities to verticut and let the grass grow out and reestablish. It’s all part of getting to golf year round in Central Texas. But the greens were long, slow, and not much fun. Many of the greenside bunkers have little to no sand in them. Just grab a rake and slide one through.

The owner is as kind of a man as can be. He truly cares and wants a quality product. He made a TREMENDOUS hire in his new Director of Golf. Leaders position their employees to make decisions and improvements based on data. Hopefully he’ll allow the Director and Superintendent to collaborate and define a course of action to get things back to the quality I’m used to seeing out there.

I’ll definitely be back. It’s just a matter of when.

A course I always enjoy.

This a good course, always in good condition and fun to play. Dirt cart paths but good condition. Greens are in very good shape but fast as it's winter. Good fairways. Friendly staff.

Nice Course

First time playing Lighthouse and even with all the good reviews I was pleasantly surprised with the condition of the course, given it’s December and there have already been a few freezes. Nice layout with enough challenging holes to keep things interesting. Greens rolled true with average speed. Friendly staff. Drove in from Georgetown Cedar Park area and it was worth it especially since very few people were on course at 1030 even though it was sunny and close to 60 degrees. 67 by the time I finished in 2.5 hours. I’ll be back.

Hill Country Treat

This course continues to impress me. The greens will give you nightmares but if you keep putting on them they will make you a better putter. It was better playing the course today as they have cut back on water all around the edge of the greens. When they do water around the greens you can't hardly ever hit a "pitch and run" or the ball will plug. Its a fun course to play even with the "granite" field on number 6. Larry Stirling

Gem in the Hills

This may be one of the most playable and fun courses in the Hill country area. I was lucky the day I played as it was windy and cold so not too many warm weather golfers showed up. Made the round incredibly relaxing. Staff was so nice and so accommodating. The course is really unique and the greens rolled beautifully. I would give this a 4.7 out of 5 if ratings were allowed in sub #s. Only reason not 5/5 is the rough was dormant and not grown in. I will absolutely play this course again and any time!

Great value

Live in Austin but definitely worth the drive. Compared with Saturday play in Austin 4 hours 15 minutes is good. Course in great shape, greens fast but true.

Good Course

Lighthouse is a fun course that has good bones. Fairway conditions were above average and the greens were excellent. Each hole is unique making for an enjoyable experience. In particular, #6 plays through granite outcroppings making it among the prettiest holes in the Hill Country. I recommend playing here and will return myself.

2nd best golf in central texas

The course was was in excellent condition. All the fairways , tee boxes and greens were in excellent shape. Only when you slice or hook to you get into some dry conditions but still I was able to play out of due to there bey so little grass ( or weeds) just off the fairway. For the money this is a really good course. The views are really nice too.

Surviving the 100 degree days

While summer takes its toll on most muni courses in TX, lighthouse was in very good shape. The greens actually left ball marks! Fun tract but be ready for some twists!!!

Greens were better than expected

Considering summer in TX is here the greens were in good shape. Made some nice putts because the ball rolled true.
Layout is a little screwy on a couple of holes but a fun play!
