Lions Municipal Golf Course
After starting 20 min after our tee time I was still waiting on a cart. Not being able to produce on the most basic of expectations will have me not coming back even though I felt the course was in good condition and overall great bang for your buck.

Historic Austin gem in its twilight
It will be a true shame when the University of Texas takes back the land that sits beneath Lions and shutters this 100-year-old course for good -- one of the busiest courses in all of Texas and a nice, affordable spot surrounded by million dollar West Austin homes. The course just 6,000 yards, always busy and has its flaws, but it's a historic, cherished little piece of this city and a breath of green space in an ever-growing city.
I've played this course many times and never seem to score as well as I should and the back nine is particularly good. The fact it doesn't roll over to modern technology is a testament to the savvy, finesse golfer and not the long-bomber. Lions can still show some teeth nearly 100 years after it opened.

Hope the city does not decide to use this for muti-business use waiting for the summer to be able to play on grass. sand traps could use more sand.

We really enjoyed the course. It seemed to be in good condition and enjoyed the challenges.

Great layout, very friendly staff. Good value in Austin area.
Played a round on 12/4 Wed. Course was in good condition. My original tee time was 10:56am (I was by myself). After talking to the club house team, they let me teed off earlier without saying anything. Pace was very good; we finished the round in less than 4 hrs (4 of us). I always liked the layout at Lions. If they have money to do some improvement on the greens and fairways it can be a great track. - JD
