Pros: Four different tees (Red, White, Blue, and Reverse) give this course 72 very different holes. Blue is for the big boys with one hole over 1100' and uphill. White, although longer than red, is probably the easiest because the short red course is slightly more technical. The reverse course is the most technical of the four but even it is pretty open for the most part.

This is one of the prettiest courses you will ever play. It is a cattle ranch with rolling hills, huge trees, a couple of ponds, and barbed wire fences every where.

I can't think of a course that has a bigger variety of shots than this one. Uphill, downhill, over water, open, super long, short, tight, left, right, over fences, etc.

There is a driving range with tone poles to aim at and a practice basket.

The sandy soil out there is quite amazing. I played during a torential downpour (3" of rain on day 1 of a tournament) and there were absolutely no footing problems. The next day you could not even tell it had rained. I would even go as far as to say that the natural packed sand tees at Moody's are superior to concrete.

A few of the holes have benches to rest at.

There are two B tier tourneys per year at Moody's and most people camp out for them. It is a blast.
Cons: There are some cow pies you could step in if you don't keep a lookout.

There are areas of tall, unmowed rough lining many of the mowed fairways. It is quite easy to lose a disc in this tall grass.

There are grass burrs everywhere.

There use to be tee signs but of the few that are left only a couple are legible.

There was no map available and distances would have been nice to know.
Other Thoughts: Thank you Mr. Moody for making such a wonderful piece of property available to the public. I look forward to playing it many more times in the future.

Pros: Large private acreage. Par 4 and 5 holes plentiful. Multiple tees on each hole. Good terrain. Water in play on a few holes.
Cons: Not much to complain about. If I had to think of one thing, it would be that it's a bit out of the way and difficult to find for the first time visitor.
Other Thoughts: This is a great facility for real golf. Not only are there true par 4's (and a par 5), they aren't just lengthy, you have to think about placing your drive to set up for the next shot. Since it's a private course and a ways from Austin, it's not likely to be crowded like the Austin city courses.

The sandy soil on which the course is built means that you can play the course soon after a heavy rain without slogging through mud.

There have been cattle grazing on the course when I've been there, so you might have to avoid some treasures left on the ground if that's still the case.

Overall, well worth the drive if you're in the Austin area.
