If you like playing off of cracked, hardened clay, then be my guest. I was actually impressed at how terribly maintained this course is, especially for it being fairly new. It literally takes effort to screw up a course this bad. Fairways are impossible to distinguish. The grass that remains on the fairway is few and far between. It's like hitting from a hazard on every shot, even in the middle of the fairway. I wish I could post pictures here, because I took plenty. At least the greens were rolled and painted. I don't expect greens to be green and alive in February, so at least they did what they could. It's the 2nd worst course in the Austin area; the first being Riverside. This one is a close second. For $43 on a Sunday, I'd rather get drinks at a bar the night before and nurse my hangover all day. 2 stars for having GPS, which only worked in 1 of our carts. 0 stars for course maintenance. Get with the program, Blackhawk. It takes little effort to put grass on your fairways. I'm literally still in awe at how jacked up this course was. It's unbelievable... until you waste $50 on it.

Decent course for a beginner. But buyer beware, 18-22 year old college students operate and run the pro shop. One claimed to be manager apparently. We were on hole 3 fairway and notice that the flag on the green been at a 60 degree angle. This was due to an issue with the insert of the hole. We wrapped up hole 3 and patiently waited for the group of 4 in front of us in the shade on a cart path. Before you know it here comes a college student from the pro shop immediately telling us we had to leave. He begins swearing to us before we even discuss to see what the issue is. For waiting patiently in the shade? Nope. According to a "loyal customer", we drove OUR GOLF CART on the green and through the standing flag, breaking it after we completed the hole. The boy was SWEARING blatantly toward us in accusations offending my friend and I. The manager made no effort to report the employee's rude behavior directed towards us. Our side of the story was swiftly dismissed. We were strictly on cart paths near all greens. We have played before and are not clueless of golf etiquette. Left the BlackHawk facility in awe of what happened, and we quickly made our way to star ranch golf club to play one of the funnest rounds of golf my buddy and I have played. Go the extra 5 minutes to star ranch golf club. Worth every penny.

Played about July 13, 2014. Course in good shape, except for a few fairways which are and have been under repair for a while now. Greens are excellent. Snack bar - don't expect too much. Staff - friendly. I played senior rate of $25, so price was pretty good - relative to other courses in area.

Very disappointing! Horrible value in the $40 green fee for the disappointing condition of the course. Greens are excellent but fairways were thin, weedy and with numerous bald areas and portions roped off as under repair so long that the rope had disintegrated. Bunkers have not been maintained and have grass growing inside them; the faces and high spots have the base sticking out of the sand. In one a ball almost bounce out of the bunker! I had not played this for about 12 years and in the past found it to be an excellent course, well maintained and a great value for anytime of the week. First impression was the wet hot dog buns in the club well of the cart. Pace of play was great with a round of 4:15 but with the number of quality layouts in this price range in this area I think management will have to change or take notice to restore this layout to it's past glory. I would not recommend this course to anyone until they either invest in the maintenance or reduce the green fee to a level below the area city owned courses. Date of play was May 27, 2012, It appears that things have not improved since Brad played here.

We had an 815am tee time on a Saturday. Right before us, a man in flip flops teed off by himself and off he went as a solo. So my father-in-law pull up next and were told to wait for a little while so they could find a couple people to pair with us. Maybe I should have worn flip flops? Anyways, the pair we golfed with was really a non-issue. Pairing happens and they were good people to golf with. As for the course. It had its ups and downs. There were some greens and fairways that were alright but others that had patches, sizable ant hills, sandy spots on green and some sand pits that had to have used the same sand from at least last year. For the pace - the four of us were mostly duffers and played loosely in a little over 4 hours so no complaints there. The staff were friendly, no complaints there. I'm only giving it 3 stars because the course, while fun to play had some issues that could affect your play if you were trying to get a good score instead of have a good time. One more note - you will need some accuracy because a lot of the holes have homes on both sides of the fairway. Don't break any windows!

Good for the price. Fairways are a little bare on spots.
