Roy Kizer Golf Course
Course is in premiere shape!!!
Teed off at 3pm on Friday, pace of play was a bit slower than what I'm used to at Kizer. Wasn't too stacked opened up on the back 9, expected for a summer Friday afternoon. Course is in Great shape all that rain from past couple of months has done wonders for the course. Fairways are plush greens are rolling good, the green on number 11 had a few dry spots with sand but that was the only one. Course is a great value right now for a municipal.

What a turnaround
I visited Kizer about 2 months ago and the greens were in such bad shape we didn't even play the course. Today, #12 green is the only one that has yet to completely recover, and the few small problem areas there weren't really in play. Yesterday afternoon the greens were rolling true and stimping at about a 9. Fairways, green surrounds and tee boxes were in good shape. Good sand in the bunkers. The driving range is being redone as part of the Jimmy Clay re-do, so no warm-up balls. Really impressed with the greenskeeper's work.

Fine course, slow play
Course was a bit wet after all the rain we had gotten here in Austin, but still played reasonably well. More Marshalls were needed to help the flow of play. Terribly slow foursome ahead of me, along with a single player who was playing 2 balls. Otherwise, I enjoyed my round. I like playing at Roy Kizer.

Where were the Marshals?
I like the course, it is one of my favorite places to play. However, this outing could have been much better if the course had a Marshal that checked on the players. This outing we were behind a foursome that played loud music, threw balls at each other, ran across the green, damaged the greens and played bumper cars with the carts. Never saw a marshal once.

In The Rough
The greens are still rough, still need a lot of work. Hopefully the recent rains help the grass on the greens and the ball can roll instead on jumping up and down towards the hole. The driving range is under re-construction an closed, so your warmup is the first hole.

Kizer dog track
This is the worst shape this course has ever been in with hard crusty greens. If you want your wedge approach shot to stop make sure you under club or expect the ball to run 5 - 10 yards after impact. I don't think it was worth the $33 discount price, much less the regular $49 they normally charge.

Greens aerated a few weeks ago and way too many hot spots for good putting. Pace of play was ok...if not for the group of 5 in front. Been playing here for many years and greens were in worst shape ive seen. I attribute this too the diverted traffic while clay is under construction. Still enjoy this course though.

Play this course quite a bit due to it being down the street from my house. Course is in pretty good shape but could be better. Everyone there at the course is super friendly and pace of play is great. Definitely going to continue to play here!
