OK so after panning Crenshaw for its god-awful greens I'd like to praise Canyons for its beautiful greens. The course is in awesome shape and the greens roll true. One niggle stops it from being a 5-star review - the bunkers have a very thin...More

The Canyons is a classic Fazio course set in a beautiful Texas hill country backdrop. The course is terrific, with very challenging, multi-level greens. A much needed grille, pro shop facility is nearly complete and will significantly enhance the golfing experience.

I’m sure this would be a great course if it wasn’t under construction and over priced. And as another poster reported, this is a member-driven course. Don’t expect much for your top tier fees.

The course is tough, but if you hit it straight, you'll do fine. I like that there are red stakes lining most of the fairways, so you don't have a stroke and distance lost ball penalty whenever you miss the fairways. However, a $125 TWILIGHT...More

The Barton Creek Canyons Course takes you for a great tour of Texas Hill Country scenery. This outstanding course is very well maintained. Almost all of the holes have a great vista with several streams meandering through the course to present challenges to golfers. Virtually...More

If you have not played Barton Creek, this has to be on the to do list. Twists, turns, blind shots, elevated tees, elevated greens, waterfalls, lakes, putts that break up hill......this course has it all. While it is definitely a challenging course, it is not...More

As a bogey golfer (on a good day) I was a bit intimidated to take on a course like this, but the design is brilliant. Good golfers will take on the challenge to cut a few corners, and clear the various creeks and sandtraps. A...More

Tom Fazio created a gem on this piece of land . It is rugged but fair. The fairways are wide enough for most golfers but tight enough to bite if you stray too far. The greens are large and fast but have no penal twists...More
