Nice tract -- makes you want to buy a house with the lake on one side and the course on the other.
We really liked this course and will certainly be back. For the Burnet - Marble Falls - Kingsland area, it's definitely one you need to play.
The driving range and putting green were both quite ample.
The grass was cut very nice on tee boxes, fairways, first cut rough, and greens. However, there were some dried out spots on several tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Then again, it's the middle of August and the central Texas drought continues. So I can't really blame them.
There are just a few spots where water can get you. The course has a good amount of fairway and greenside bunkers -- mostly puzzle piece shaped with decent lips to get over. I did find that several of these bunkers had too many rocks in them; some larger than golf balls. So be careful.
You actually end up back by the club house after #6 in case that's useful. You then get back at the normal turn of #9. There was also one restroom located on the back 9 between 14 & 15.
There were plenty of water jugs on the course. They were a little smaller than the normal ones I'm used to seeing. And on this hot day, most were running out of water. Seeing as how we were one of maybe three groups on the course this afternoon, they may not have filled these up enough. We'll let it slide today ... but I'll talk to the clubhouse staff if it happens on our next visit. No worries.
And finally, #13 has a greenside bunker with a good sized oak tree in the middle -- probably the first time I've seen anything like that. Interesting to say the least.

Legends on Lake LBJ
Very friendly & eager to please staff. Played on Sunday afternoon & pace of play was ideal for foursome of moderate ability. Great value. Greens slower than normal but recent (& RARE) July rains contributed. Wide landing areas.

Great for the $
The course was little rough around the edges. However, issues were actively being addressed. Great course for the money. I'd play it again.

Great views of the Lake
Fairly challenging course. Helps if you are a long hitter. The course is in very good shape and fairly open fairways. Lot of fairway sand traps so be mindful of that. Good value for the $$$. Would play it again.

Greens are not in very good shape. Layout is awesome, but then you get to the greens. Lotta weeds on greens. Even with golfnow prices, it's too pricey for the condition of the course.

This is a beautiful course. The views, the fairways, the greens, the layout. Everything you would expect from a resort course or a high dollar private country club, at an affordable rate. Wish I had brought my A game that day, as I struggled to control my driver, but that wasn't courses fault. Course is challenging, but very playable. Definitely going back, with my A game.

Best in Hill Country
This Tom Kite design has stood the test of time and has changed ownership a few times; most recently in April of this year. The maintenance crew is working extremely hard to got the course in tip-top shape. Since the new owner took over I would say the greens have gone from a 4 to a 7, the fairways have gone from a 7 to a 9, and the proshop from a 2 to a 10. Extremely friendly staff, head pro Ronna Wilson is very accomodating, and guest service staff member Tyler Davis went completely out of his way to make sure our round was the best it could be. I would recommend this track to anyone and everyone.

Great holes along the lake
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Although it was very windy, the course played fair. The course was in very good shape
