We were the first to tee off in the afternoon after a high school golf tournament. Greens are still trying to come in with the Bermuda, but certainly playable. It's a fun course!

I played on Sunday with my family and we had a great round. The fairways were as good as anywhere in town. In fact, for a daily fee course, they were excellent. The greens, unfortunately, had not fully come in so I would rate course conditions no more than an 8 out of 10 overall.

Because of Wednesday’s rain, the course was cart path only. The problem with that was the course was completely dry. I never saw standing water, never saw saturation of the ground. It was ridiculous to not at least change to 90 degrees by 12:00 or 1:00.

Kizer is my 4th favorite layout amongst the munis in Austin but since most of the others have been aerated recently I figured I may as well give it a go (I actually showed up hoping to play Clay but it was too busy). The greens couldn't have putted better. Very nice! One weird thing though was the fringes were overseeded too, so they are pretty long and thick, while the surrounds are a more bare, early-season bermuda. That isn't the case at Lions where they also overseeded. It makes bump and runs tough right now and I had a few of them.

I'm guessing it'll be really warm in a few weeks and greens will transition back to bermuda, and there are no trees out there so shade will be at a minimum. So walk Kizer while you can.

I love playing Kizer when it's firm and fast, yet that wasn't the case yesterday. We've gotten a good amount of rain but the grounds crew out there has done a great job of keeping the course in good shape. Had a blast, only annoyance was the groups in front of us were a bit slow (seemed like a bachelor party or something) and the group behind us hit into us 2-3 times. Not bad enough to warrant calling a marshal, but annoying for sure. Greens rolling well right now.

Tees for every level of player. Course conditions were great for the cold weather we were having. Staff was very friendly and the bar looked like a cool place to hang out. I will definitely be going back, maybe to the group classes I saw being promoted in the clubhouse.
