Nice Layout; Poor Condition
The course has an interesting layout. Over all, it is quite flat and open--few trees or elevation changes. However, there are lots of rolling hills of thick Bermuda lining the fairways. Generous number of water hazards and sand traps.
The disappointment was in the course maintenance. At least 90% of the traps were unkept and unplayable--eroded, hard. Some of the greens were damaged, not recently mowed, and lots of unrepaired ball marks. In fairness, this was my first time to play this course, so I do not know if these condition issues are the norm.
I play 30-40 courses per year, and by comparison, I felt the course was over-priced for the conditions. If you can keep your ball in the fairway, the course plays pretty easy, but if you miss a lot of fairways and greens, you can post a large number. I played on a cool, windy day and shot 77 (avg. score).

Course was in good condition, the greens were nice and they have great practice facilities. I would definitely play it again even though it's a little expensive and the pace of play is not as fast as it should be!

Great Muni Course
Course was in average shape but this is a well maintained course. It is the pride of Austins city courses. A great Value for the money. Greens put true.

Best in Texas
This was the best course I've played so far in Texas. It's a great links course with several risk reward holes. They had recently over seeded so the greens were slow but true. The staff checking us in were friendly and helpful. He recommended we return to play Jimmy Clay as well. I wish we had played there today instead of Quail Creek Country Club. That was a true dog track.
Can't wait to return. It is now my Austin go to course when I'm in town.

This course was interesting, links style course
Well kept course, however the greens had just been sanded. Lots of interesting holes, lots of sand and water but the fairways are wide open.
