The Golf Club At Star Ranch
First of all the round of golf was fun and the food was great. I'm a little tiffed about the Golfnow.com rate didn't include the food buffet. It is if you buy it at the golf course. So I paid the Goflnow fees, paid $62 for the round and had to pay $7 more at the golf course to get the buffet. It was $69 at the course anyways. So I paid $80 for a $69 round. Golfnow needs to make sure these things are mentioned when booking.

Review from a resident.
Staff was pushing us all day, keep in mind it was cart path only. We had 2.5 inches of rain the day before so the pace of play was slower than usual & we were waiting on the group of 3 in front of us most of the day. The course had so much trash along the rough & in the water that I was a bit embarrassed. I had taken my parents & brother golfing for the first time since we moved to the course & told them how nice it was. The signature hole, #15 looked more like a recycle bin had overflowed into the pond than anything. Not quite the postcard picture they'd seen on the website. Hey staff, instead of picking up pecans here's an idea, pick up the garbage that's outlining the fairways.

One of my favorite courses
Great winter day on the links. We love to play this course, one of our foursomes favorites. We play weekly and play here as much as possible. Fairways are in good shape and Greeens are excellent. Couse is challenging but fair. Landscaping around the clubhouse is nice and relaxing. Only negative of this round was a course marshall telling us to speed up several times because groups of 2 and 3 were catching up to our foursome. Even though we completed our round in only 4 hours. But that is the only time we have had that issue there. Enjoy!

Beautiful course with numerous challenges
Each time I play this course I amazed at how well manicured it is and how clean the entire course and facilities. The staff are genuinely Texas friendly.

Beautiful day, beautiful course
The weather was perfect, and the course was pretty close. Great round, good time.

The course was in good shape, but, the greens were very slow. Cart broke down on front 9. Saw a large rattlesnake on the fairway on 3rd hole, be careful. I thought the yardage to the flags were poorly marked, no cart GPS that is getting commonplace. Several pins were mismarked based on pin position #2 and yardage markers in fairway were hard to find. Better yardage would make play faster.

Excellent course conditions
Course is in very good shape after a pretty typical Texas summer, greens are particularly nice. This is an open, links-like, Roy Bechtel design; thus fairly easy off the tee, but would be more of a challenge on a windy day. Rough is pretty thick right now, and hitting from the Bermuda around the greens can be a problem. Tee boxes have just been verticut for overseeding, but presented no real problem. Star also has one of the best practice facilities in the entire Austin area. In sum, a nice break from lots of trees and doglegs on other area courses.
