“Nice hideout !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Played last weekend, I was impressed by how well groomed the greens and fairways are, lots of elevation and challenging small greens, all said easy puts to be made, the par 3's with high elevation change create a beautiful scene and you can impress yourself by hitting long distances with 2 clubs less than usual. Went there because of the reviews and left very satisfied, I play 3 to 4 times a month in the Houston area and really had a good time, for $35 bucks you play a very decent public course and get to see some awesome views of the hill country. Very friendly staff. They have a page called "tips for the course" which guides you around the twisty fairways, you can get it from the starter, nice touch, very helpfull for first timers. Good luck and enjoy.

“Fun course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

What a fun course to play. Lots of elevation change. Fairways and greens are the way to play this course. A gem tucked away in the Lost Pines forest. On site driving range and putting green also. Highly recommend visiting this course.

“WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

What a great surprise to find this jewel of a course. The layout is superb, and some of the views are breathtaking. Don't know how the architects carved a course out of there canyons. It was a good test for Hubby (a 5 hdcp), and the ladies tees were short enough for me to enjoy. The greens are undulating and you may walk off half of them mumbling something to yourself. They are bermuda and you have to watch the grain...and one little tip: they break toward the river. There were several holes along the Colorado River. Quit scenic, huge elevation changes, thoroughly enjoyable. Good kitchen for a breakfast sandwich. Great deal on GolfNow.

“Slow play, bad course maintenance, etc”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

I played here before and was prepared for the poorly maintained greens, uneven tee boxes and overall lack of course maintenance. What I was not prepared for was to be sent out in the back of tournament and then for the yahoos taking reservations to funnel more people out in front of us at the turn.

There were 3 groups waiting on each tee box. Horrendous waits, with no sign of starter or course marshal, golf pro, cart girl or anyone with the course. Not sure if there is any leadership at course or if the plan is just for it to run itself. If there is any leadership, I suggest serious self reflection.

Good layout with great vistas are being wasted on this "operation."

“pretty and challenging”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Hi, This course has great holes with lots of elevation change. Many of the holes require good golf to stay in the fairways. They used to allow walking, but now require cart rental - which is probably a good idea since some of the distances from green to next tee are a ways. Still, even though I'd rather walk, I make this course a destination.
