Layout of the course was good and the scenery was very good..Tees and greens were full of fungus especially the greens...

Putting was the worst greens were black and and looked as if mud caked the surface it’s also as if they set it on fire to burn off the fungus...

Very rough greens with sand and fungus ruined the game playing ...

Will likely never come back and I play often with travels between Chicago and Austin area...

If you’re trying to improve your game or even keep score seriously for that matter, go somewhere else. The cheaper green fees (relatively) are tempting to jump at but the greens and tee boxes and many parts of the fairways are abismal.

Disappointing experience - will not be back this year.

Was told the greens were not in great shape. This was a major understatement. I was not told that the tee boxes and fairways were also very bad. Lots of work needs to be done. Early conditions? Maybe. But I can say if I had paid more than $25 I would've been very upset. Course layout not bad. It may have been good in the day but I can tell you that this was likely the worst conditions I've ever experienced on any golf course, period.

Fun course with a challenging layout, made even harder by bumpy and uneven greens made it very frustrating. The views are amazing and even stunning, but the hour drive from downtown isn’t helped when compared to course condition. If it was in better shape, I might play more often. Instead I’ll play at the local goat track

The course isn't in terrible condition, but it isn't good either. The greens are beat up and battered one section was even closed off. The pace of play was bad, but its expected for the weekend. This is a great you get what you pay for situation, but the views on the course are stunning above the lake and on the hills. It is a challenging course for sure, but it is fun for sure other than putting on the greens. Not really an issue, but the gentleman who helped me today wasn't friendly at all and said "he'd never play on the weekends and good luck getting through 18". I didn't understand the comment because there are a lot of courses to play in the area and I can go to a different one if you don't want business I guess. Kinda weird if you ask me

We try and play a different course every time we go to Austin, so we chose Lago Vista--about an hour drive for us, but well worth it. Beautiful course, there were some spots that had no grass, but I feel confident that the course will overcome the winter weather. Greens were challenging, which we like.

Great time, will go back!!

Despite promises in responses to multiple bad reviews on this site, this course is not improving. "Greens" were a mess and mostly sand/dirt. Overall conditions continue to deteriorate. Was a nice track 3-4 years ago. Now they seem on the way to closing just like Highland. Sad.

The course is not in the best of shape but you could see they are working hard after the devastating flood. So yes you have washed out spots but give the grounds crew a break. Seen where carts were driven into mud, what's wrong with some lazy golfers. Some holes should be cart paths only to allow the course to heal.
