I booked because I thought a value and had Harvey Pennick name. Rated 3.5. I have been playing golf for 50 years and never played a course this bad. Greens were in puttable. No tee markers or signs with hole numbers

I paid for 18 and left after 6.

The greens need some work to just be consistent. I don’t expect them to be perfect but the lack of consistency certainly made putting more difficult. Course is fun and plays fast and definitely worth the money to get your practice in.

The course is in very good shape. A few of the greens need a little work, however overall the course is great. If your looking for country club conditions this probably isn’t the course for you. If your looking for a fun, short 9 hole course give a Harvey Pennick a try.

If you know Austin golf, this course can be described as a cross between Jimmy Clay and Hancock. Only 9 holes, 6 par threes and 3 par fours., but well-designed and visually appealing. Has that East Austin terrain and plant life. The only problem was the need for some mowing, weeding and fallen tree removal.

A good option for kids and beginners, but still a good challenge from the back tees. A better option than Hancock if you are okay with mostly short holes.

I found the course had inadequate and some confusing signage. There is a mix of golf and foot golf and it was difficult to determine how to get to the next tee locations as there were multiple paths without signage. Some of the paths had fallen trees blocking them. The out of bounds areas were well marked however, with warning signs about rattlesnakes. While there was rain in the forecast for later in the day, the groundskeeper was diligently turning on the sprinklers almost immediately before we reached almost every green. In some cases he would park next to us and wait for us to complete our strokes, which was bothersome. If you decide to play this course, and you are a beginner to intermediate skilled golfer, bring plenty of extra balls with to the course, as the fairways are lined with heavy vegetation and trees, and you will be hitting over water several times.
