Winter Time Conditions?
Always enjoy playing this course. Usually play during the week when it is less crowded. Fairways in decent shape but greens not up to their usual standard. With Jimmy Clay closing for six months for repairs this course will get a lot of pressure and I hope staff can keep the course maintained to a reasonable playing level. Good value thru GolfNow but doubt I would pay standard green fees given the shape it is in now.

Good layout, great deal, average experience
The place was fully packed for a 1:40 tee time on a Monday. We were stuck behind a group of hackers in jeans and had to wait for them on about 12 holes which made getting into a rhythm difficult. Decent wide open layout-conditions never change here typically dead and burnt out. People in the pro shop are kind of flaky and the locals think they run the show. But for 16 a pop it was well worth any hassle.

Greens were in good condition. Pace of play could have been a bit faster. Good value for a muny course.

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.
