Teravista Golf Club
Slow ride take it easy
Friday late afternoon slow play requiring us to take it easy Fairways were excellent, tee boxes excellent, but traps were crusty and gritty and some with water puddles, and greens gave an explosion of sand and would not hold on approach shots real well but was an enjoyable day of golf. Good weather and a challenging course layout.

Good course, good price
Currently the course is in great shape with the exception of the traps but they are working on them.

Teravista is worth your time
So, I moved to Texas about four years ago and the turf, golf, wind, everything golf is so different here from Ohio. The ground is so hard, greens are like concrete... at some courses... Teravista is one of the best groomed, waters and cared for courses. The greens are beautiful, albeit quite a bit inconsistent regarding speed from 1 to 18, I would like to see the greens rolled possibly throughout the day. The fairways are in great shape, the rough can be costly. This course requires some shot shaping to really be in position to score, you are going to have to both fade and draw the ball to really be in the ideal positions.
The traps could use some fresh sand as the recent rains have really washed away the sand trap quality. I just about broke my wrist in one of the traps it was like concrete... I would not let that dictate not playing at this course... just stay out of the traps and every other lie will be fair and as expected when you look at them.
The staff at Teravista is really nice and takes care to make sure you get checked in and off the tee on time if not early. The starter is a really nice gentlemen that will do everything he can to not only get you moving right he will also adjust pairings if he see's folks that just don't match up. He always has a smile and it is pleasant to pull up to the first tee which is rare sometimes.
I would recommend that you do not think about walking this course, it has some distance between the holes on the other side of the development. In addition to that they have just purchased new golf carts that run great, however they no longer have GPS. I emailed the GM to ask about yardage books and they are currently working on them as both a resource and souvenir

Fun course to play
Nice course to play with a nice layout. Greens were fast but fair. Fairways were fast and ball ran forever. Bunkers were mostly dirt and badly in need to be sand filled. Had a nice time joining up with a fellow single.

Rude golf pro
The fairways and greens were in excellent shape. The bunkers showed damage from the recent rains. The head golf pro was rude to me for getting mud on the tires of the golf cart. I saw him duff his tee shot as he played through and I birdied the hole. That's golf karma baby.

on a fast doenward spiral
New mgmt in fully entrenched since jan'15 and course is showing signs of going downhill fast. Had late tee time, 12ish. Loaded up,got sandwich n drink went to hit balls. I have never seen a worse driving range. Grass was at least 2" high,under shaggy grass was a thick sand base. You d hit a shot and it was like a powder puff,ball went nowhere,3" sand divot...horrible. While we were trying to warm up the cart kids took our cart in spite of there being drinks and food in it!(we had taken our bags to the range)
Unreal! When we asked the kid "what did you do with our food" he said " oh, I just threw it out."
We had to go to the tee and almost 2 1\2 hours later we made it to #9 tee box!! Straight to the car...trunk slammer. Traps still have no sand but hard dirt. Place will look like a muny in a year.

Everything's nice but the bunkers
The fairways and greens were in nice shape, but wooooooooo nelly, the bunkers were rocked up more than Chris, as in Chris Rock.
I had a couple of buddies play out of the bunkers and damage clubs due to the conditions.
That's the only reason I wouldn't recommend this course.......the bunkers. Not everyone is as fortunate as I was to not have to hit out of them.

I would say this course is very challenging and rewarding you might mistaken the course for a PGA course. Excellent greens that roll true and fast wow. I'll definitely come back and play and tell everyone about trying it out.
