Lions Municipal Golf Course
Sunday at Lions Muny
Greens are questionable, perhaps due to all the rain we've been having, and indicate root system issues. Greens were running at about 6.5 - 7. Cloudy, rainy weather giving way to direct sunlight and warmer growing conditions should help.
We played on a Sunday. The course was packed and it took right at 5 hours to play.
Despite these issues, Muny has a quirky charm that makes it fun to play regardless.

They punched the greens today. Overall course was decent. Not bad for price and a little bit of history.

I try to play Lions every year...this time I had my grandson with me and it was really fun. Notorious for long rounds we played in 4:15 which I find pretty decent on a Muny. Lots of great 1920's architecture here and some really cool shots like 12 and 16 entries to the greens...excellent. Grandson couldn't figure out the greens, grain, slope, speed...I love putting here...fun!
Grandson birdied 9, 10 and 18 so we had a great day.

Good course, got a great rate on golfnow for $10. Had to take advantage of that. It was busy and they paired me with a couple of guys and that was o.k but one guy made the front nine uncomfortable due to his throwing of clubs and kicking of his ball due to him missing putts. Still had a good time as I ditched him at the turn. Will still play again.

The Course being Public has great features & Good
Staff and Golfers were very friendly and good natured, we had a great time for a Municipal Public Golf Course built 1n 1928 / City of Austin Parks property since 1934
Course is very well kept and is moderately challenging with all the lakes and wooded areas though out the 18 holes we played.... Great Value, we recommend it!

Definitely a course that one needs to play often to get a feel for the greens. I expected them to be slow but several putts were fast and others extremely slow. Also difficult to judge whether uphill or downhill, and i guessed wrong several times. Pace of play not great - i believe it took us at least 4 1/2 hours. Great old course - i have played off and on for about 50 years - mostly off. General condition of course was better than i expected, considering the amount of play it gets and being a municipal course.

Played Saturday morning. Only bad thing I can say was that I got stuck behind a 5 some that were all walking so pace of play was slow but other than that is was great. Course was in really good condition, part of which i think was because they just hosted an UIL tournament. Will always play this course while in Austin.

Great Local Gem!
First time playing this course with a couple buddies. It was surprisingly lush and private feeling considering you're basically in downtown Austin. Great trees and well maintained course. We will be back soon and may even bring the dog!
