Lions Municipal Golf Course
Fun. but a work in progress
Lions can be easy and tough at the same time. For the amount they ask, there are better course in Austin.
The fairways are hard so you will get roll out of every shot. The problem is the greens. I know its the beginning of the season, so I am not concerned just yet. Give it a couple months and the grass will grow. I plan to be back in the Summer.

Nice but so slow
Maybe the first nice day in a while brought everyone out but the course seemed to have overbooked. We teed off at 11:36a and were behind two foursome younger players out to have fun and by the turn we were waiting 20 minutes on #10. It makes for a terrible day if you are trying to play your best.

Keep lions open!!
Over the last couple of years lions over all condition has came a long way, unfortunately I have heard they will be shutting down around 2019. Even though it was pretty packed the pace of play was great!!! Love playing this corse, isnt to difficult but some holes can be challenging.

Good Fun Course
This was my first time playing this course and it exceeded my expectations. The carts were older but in decent working order and the course itself was in great shape. The greens were much better than expected.

Great course with history, too bad it's going away
This was the 3rd anniversary of my first time playing golf and it was here that I started. It is sad that it is going away in 2019. Weather was a little chilly starting out but it got warmer. I set a new record and finished in under 3 hours. First 9 are average dificulty but back 9 are more challenging.

Good urban muny
This classic old municipal course was in its best shape in my experience with the ample Fall rains. It still shows fray around the edges, but perhaps inevitable given the likelihood of its demise at lease expiration.
The greens are muny slow after a rain and take some adjustment. But roll accurately enough to reward a good read.
It can be demanding for a senior, but with the proper mix of white and blue tees can be a challenging course. We played all white tees and would likely adjust next time. Two of the holes on the back nine (12 and 16) are as testing as any in Austin.
Time of play was good, just under 4 hours.

Excellent, Enjoyable Course
This course is a fun place to golf. There are enough obstacles to make the course interesting, but not overly difficult. The greens were well maintained and quite fast. The fairways were well maintained as well.
I booked as a single, and they automatically paired me up with another couple which made it more enjoyable for me. We completed 18 holes in 4 hours.
