Course is not in good shape. Greens were decent, everything else was pretty bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dwilmeth Good option for the Austin area
Almost did not go because of some negative reviews so glad I kept an open mind and tried it for myself. I travel to Austin 4-5 times per year and often get to play a round prior to my stay. This course was challenging and I really liked all the elevation changes and undulations in the course. Great layout. Good mix of short and long par 3's and 4's and some reachable par 5's. Greens were fine though could use a blower for the leaves this time of year. Will definitely come back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nicodywill Shadowglen is a gem
Booked a hot deal twosome for Shadowglen and couldn't be happier with the round. The staff are always extremely friendly and helpful. The drinks are cold and the course was in good condition and played fairly. The greens rolled fast and true (for the most part, there are a couple bare spots on the edges of a couple holes), the tee boxes were in good condition, and the fairways and rough looked great. Pace of play was never an issue and was being patrolled by the marshal throughout the day, the cart girl was on point as well and made her rounds frequently. Overall you can't beat it for $32 bucks each. Definitely worth the 25 minute drive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by frankbwn The Course is a very nice one .But...
Course is really nice . Good layout , conditions of the course are okay.
The only downturn is that there is so much rubbish ( empty beer cans , empty drink containers etc.. ) on almost every hole on the side of the cart path and on the sides of the fairways ,greens

Rated 1 out of 5 by parshooter12 worse shape I've ever seen a course
Decided to grab a hot deal and drive the hour to this course. How this can have a rating of 4 stars is a myth to me. The tee boxes were torn up and fuzzy. The fairways were covered with dead grass,fuzzy and numerous dead spots...had to roll evry ball to find a descent lie. The traps had weeds,grass growing out of most of em. Greens were bumpy,missing grass in spots and rolled horrible. The only good thing,temporarily, was the front was empty so I got around quickly,which is always an issue at SG. That too ended on 13, ran into a wall of golfers and pace came to a crawl. Sat at the tee box for 18 minutes and packed it in,drove back to the parking lot.
I was out there to look at SG for a possible golf tourny. Not a chance I'd bring it to a course in this kind of shape. Definitely wasted my time and $$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by David2883838 need Marshall
Played with my son for his Birthday...got behind a foursome at hole 4 which they let a 2 some play thru and never let us play thru..they were extremely slow and by hole 12 it was backed up behind us. I truly believe they did it on purpose. Every hole when they were teeing off we were in our cart waitng behind them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kdows22 Saturday round at Shadowglen
The weather was great for our round. The course was in great shape, as was the driving range. The pace of play wasn't really a problem until the 5th or 6th hole, and it wasn't that bad. Our 2-some joined up with another 2-some on the back 9 to make the round go quicker. I really enjoy this course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alberttailleur One of the best
I play this course 2-3 times a week. It is truly a gem. Very challenging from the gold or black tees but the reward is some amazing views and a variety of shot choices. The bunkers are in terrible shape right now but I know the staff is working on them. The greens are healing nicely from being punched 3 weeks ago and will soon be back to probably the best greens I have ever putted on. Pace of play can sometimes be an issue during busy times and a Marshall on course would be extremely beneficial.
This course is a must play for golfers of any skill level!!
