Roy Kizer Golf Course
This is a beautiful course, but overpriced unless you get a hot deal through golfnow. The fairways are excellent, the layout is challenging with some memorable holes and one of the toughest par 4s in Austin (#11). Would have been a lot more fun except the greens were very bumpy. which is not the norm for Kizer. It is a great course and I definitely recommend it. On a side note, played again 2 days later and greens were still bumpy, but learned how to play them on the back nine and shot much better.

Good public golf course
This is probably the better of the Austin Municipal golf courses. Nice and open fairways. Greens are reasonable. The staff is nice. I love this course and play here once a week.

Great course, well maintained
This is a muni course, but it is well maintained. Normally, they charge way to much for me to play, but got a good rate and the course is in great shape. Watch out for the last 3 holes, they will ruin a good round:-). Greens are very good, and fairways immaculate. rough is playable. Avoid the trees.

would be great if it weren't for the greens
I played on Saturday 6/28/14 and surprisingly the course was not crowded at all. We played in 3 hours flat which is unheard of on a Saturday at Kizer. It was great. The fairways also were very nice. They had recently punched them but they had come in nicely and were in really good shape. The greens, on the other hand are a different story. They had grass on them (unlike 5 weeks ago when they were mostly bare)...but they were slow and a little bumpy. The grass doesn't look uniform. It seems to be growing in every direction. I don't know what their problem is with the greens but it's a constant problem. The course would be so much better if the greens were simply good. It's still a very fun course to play but the greens continue to disappoint.

Great links style course
Good for all skill levels. The city keeps the course in great condition year round.

good course management
In my opinion, the best public course in Austin.
The tee box, fairways and greens were all green and hopefully will stay that way throughout the cruel summer weather here in Austin.

Nicest Public Course
Very nice public course and the fairways were in excellent shape. Greens were nice as well. Good value for the course. We played from the black tees which made it a challenging course. Will certainly play here again.
