Good course; great deal
Very nice course with terrific fairways. Greens were a bit hard in the July sun, but that's to be expected. Course knowledge helps a lot because you can drive your tee shot through a fairway or hit a shot into trouble before you know it. Overall, an excellent course for the price.

This course is in great shape right now. Have always liked this course. Pace of play can sometimes be an issue but this day I finished in 3 hours. Always love that.

Windy But Fun
Despite the wind, I enjoyed my round at ShadowGlen. It was a Monday afternoon, so I basically had the course to myself, and it was in great shape.

Great Greens, Challenging Course
After securing a last-minute tee time for just $25 (2:00pm on a Friday), I went out and played this beast from the tips in only 2.5 hours!
From tee to green, the course was in excellent condition, but the greens were certainly the highlight. These were the fastest, truest-rolling greens I've played in Central Texas to date (though I admit to being mostly a muni looper).
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the course layout. Many of the holes require you to make a sound decision from the tee about how to play them. In addition, there are a few sneaky water hazards that can certainly swallow a ball or two you if you're not familiar with the course.
Most of the holes were solid, but the par 5 7th is definitely a horrible, HORRIBLE hole. Your tee shot is narrow with trouble left, right, and in front (fairway bunkers), and your second *and* third shots are uphill and blind. You basically have no room to miss on any shot on this hole, and the preponderance of golf balls in the thicket short and left of the green speaks to the fact that almost everybody takes a penalty stroke here.
Finally, although Shadow Glen is a residential development course, it is *much* more open than you would otherwise expect. I absolutely cannot stand narrow, housing-development courses, and the architects of Shadow Glen have done a great job of keeping the course relatively wide open without that boxed-in feeling that so often comes with courses like this.

Great coarse in great condition. Really good value as well and is a good test of your accuracy.

This course has a lot of distance.
The staff is a very beautiful bunch of people and the course is so relaxing.
