The course layout was different. Some short holes that become very difficult if you are not familiar with the course. Great shape, nice greens and an awesome staff. We will go back.

Played here yesterday and it was great! The course is in great shape and will only get better as the greens were about 80% healed from the last aerification 3 weeks ago. Hole 6 and 7 are some of the most beautiful holes I played in Texas.

Course layout is awesome, and the conditions were pristine. Even this time of year when they’re trying to air rate the greens and the fairways. It really takes in the concept of risk and reward. Staff was super friendly and courteous.

Even when there are several patrons on the course the feel of low pressure persists. There were full tee slots but we made it around in just over four hours rarely having to wait. The course makes you place shots effectively and there is a balance between long and hard versus short and delicate holes. The course was lush and excellent to view. If there is one drawback the sandtraps could use some work but even these have improved since we last played there.

What a surprise, the Lighthouse is a neat track plenty long enough ( 6400 off the tips) to challenge the majority of golfers it also has a few quirks using the local terrain to keep the interest alive. Course conditions on the fairways were excellent and although the greens had had some recent work they still played well I imagine that in normal play are superb.

I heard that the course was always in very good condition with fast, consistent greens. After an hour & half drive from my home I found both to be true and well worth the trip! The fairways and greens were in great shape. The greens are VERY fast, so if you're a first time player be prepared. Very challenging, fun course and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I'll be back again.

Course is in good shape, well maintained fairways and bunkers, greens were smooth and fast. The local Kingsland residents have a nice course to call their own. Everyone from pro shop to members playing were very friendly and polite. Chris and I will be back since he got his butt whooped and wants a rematch!

Some of the best greens in the Austin area. Consistent speed and roll make for great scoring opportunities. Challenging layout with a variety of hole layouts and subtle dangers. Would definitely recommend this course to friends.

The friendly staff welcomed us and had us on our way quickly. Despite the wet conditions the course was very playable. (I played it down and never had an issue with my lies.). Greens were fast and true. The layout required working the ball off the tees and into the greens. First time I’ve ever seen a greenside hazard consisting of a half-acre of exposed flat rock, fortunately tilted toward the green complex! An exceptional value and interesting story about the history of the course. Will look forward to an early return!

The gentleman in the Proshop was very polite and helpful. The course is in good shape for winter and greens are rolling pure. Several holes were wet and 9 reduced to a par 3, a little disappointing but overall not bad. The wind always seams to blow at Lighthouses especially on the back 9. We played a golf now round which is reasonable. The daily rates seam to be rising and not enviting, $ 37 for a senior on this course is a little steep. Pace of play was okay with some wait. We did play thru a 3 some on 8 overall for our 4 some 4.5 hours.

Have played this course many times and have to say it is better every time we play it. Although it's winter in the hill country, the course is in great shape. The personnel continue to improve every time we return. We don't live here so are only able to play it once a month. But we rarely miss a chance to play here. You will not be dissappointed!
