Reviewed August 21, 2011

Got a Saturday afternoon tee-time online with $22 green fees. Not a bad deal at all... until we arrived to find the course completely destroyed by the 2011 drought. Almost all the fairways are dead. It looks like only the greens and tees are getting any water. I played here in 2010 and had a much better experience. I recommend playing elsewhere until central Texas gets more rain. Hopefully it'll be better next year. It's a fun little course, aside from the current playing conditions.
