I’ve played Mo Willy many times over the past 5 years as it is the closest course to my home. I’ve always understood that it is a muni and I’ve never expected the most well kept greens on earth. My past couple of rounds however are beyond what is acceptable. They were seeded incorrectly last winter, and the greens have continued to fall in condition since that time. The staff is not helpful to alert players of the poor condition of the greens, even when they are aerated or over seeded. The greens now are mostly sand, full of holes, burn spots, weeds, and cut lines. Not fun at all the play on. Additionally, the greens staff just dumps the plugs around the fairway. So lazy. I’m taking my business elsewhere until I get some confidence that Morris Williams cares about play conditions.

The course is in great condition, except for a few greens. Fairways are nice. Pace of play good. On this occasion however there were too many cart path only and I don’t know why. They weren’t wet.

Course was green with nice fairways. The greens were pretty bad. Not only had bare spots but most had large areas with sparse and bumpy areas. Had two call 2 putt good on those greens. The areas between hole 4 and 5 have grass and weeds that are too overgrown.

I'm a muni pass holder but hadn't been out to Mo Willy all year. It was good to get out and play 18 last week before the torrential weekend rains came. Played from the tips (been awhile) with some good sticks and had a good time. The conditions of tees and fairways were good and the grass has greened up nicely. The greens are a little behind. They didn't overseed the greens (like Lions did) and I think they could use some warmth for the bermuda to get some growth on them. I'm optimistic by next month they are more consistent. That said, I did make a lot of putts out there, so I can't complain.

Morris Williams is an Austin treasure! Gorgeous layout!

The greens are rough right now, and the fairways are in spring time condition but this golf course is a terrific play! Defines “Hill Country” with all kinds of elevation changes. A spectacular and wide variety of trees. Great views of downtown Austin. A really excellent play!

Nice course layout. Staff very friendly. Course was rather brown and the greens were very dry and lumpy. I’m not from Texas so I don’t know if that’s normal for this time of year.
