Rated 4 out of 5 by DELarsen ShadowGlen Nov. 4th
Course was in good shape considering all the recent rains. It was muddy in spots but you could navigate around. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Easy to find just outside of Austin. Course was in really good shape from all of the rainy weather. Greens were in good shape and rolled well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cstedman3 Not a Top Ten venue
Played ShadowGlen because of an article I read saying it was rated a Top 10 course by Golf Digest. I didn't notice how it ever got this rating. I really enjoyed the layout but course conditions left much to be desired. The fairways were decent but fire ant hills are everywhere. Most of them were 6-8 inches high which makes one wonder when mowing takes place and how often. The greens were putt-able, not too slow or fast. The traps are horrendous. Ruts from the recent rain have not been fixed and they all are in need of sand. I played Lago Vista the day after I played ShadowGlen and all the traps were groomed meticulously. Maybe it didn't rain there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JHawkgolfer78 Impressed
This course was underwater just four days before I played. I was impressed that the course was open and playable. The bunkers were not yet restored, so our group agreed to lift out, but otherwise, the course played well. Built around, over and through a winding creek, some fairways tend to roll the ball to the side. Knowledge of the course helps place to ball to avoid it rolling off the fairway. You can get in trouble if you hit into the trees lining the fairway, and of course the creek comes into play, but if you can hit reasonably straight, you can enjoy the round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by golfer456st Time to play this course again
A friend and I played here on Saturday. I know..it was kind of raining on Saturday but It was not raining when we got here but it was sprinkling very lightly until the turn. We had to quit at the 10th because the rain was finally coming down. We got our rain check to come back and play. During the course of play, we discovered that some course improvements were made. The fairway was very nice and so was the green. I saw one of the reviews complimenting the staffs and I absolutely agree. I had played here on and off but it seems like it's time to play here again. Everyone is doing their job right. I enjoyed my round here and so did my friend. We would definitely come back and play at Shadowglen again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pakalz good time
staff was friendly as always, 5 stars. course was a bit messy because of flooding but playable. cart needed a few more bolts to be tighten to stop squeaks and rattles, few more yardage markers would help poor golfers like me. hope to play here again this year when dryer.

The course was really wet, so it was cart path only. If we had known that we probably would have gone somewhere else. Nice course, just too wet,

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daniel1927813 Good to see ShadowGlen in good shape
I've probably played here more than any other public course in town and I've seen it in terrible condition and superb condition. Everything is on really good shape right now and it'll be perfect in just a few weeks. The only downside at the moment is they overseeded and some tee boxes are still really fuzzy. The bunkers are all terrible right now, but it's only due to the rain. The massive rain we got last weekend did a number on many golf courses and the bunkers take a beating too. The sad thing is there were only like 15 cars in the parking lot all day.
