Greens in horrible shape, fairways were great. At the turn they had no hotdogs or sausage wraps? So I had a taco, bad idea!! I saw the beer cart once on the 2nd hole, that was also the last . Did I say the greens were horrible!

Greens still bad , but better than my last round. apparently to get them to grow they we cut high so besides the issue with the greens they were very slow and still bumpy.

The fairway was fine. Greens were absolutely horrendous. The joke of the day was that there weren’t any greens. Definitely will pay more for another course before playing here again due to the terrible green quality.

I absolutely love this course ... however I will not be back anytime soon and that is sad. The greens are shot and they used to be some of the best around. I don't know what has happened to the muni courses around Austin but they are all suffering some kind of neglect. It is a shame and whoever is in charge of this needs to be replaced with someone who cares it is not the weather go see Star Ranch it is perfect. Please make Kizer great again we miss it!!!

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.
