Eighteen Hole Course at Lake Waco Country Club Ratings & Reviews
11 days ago
I was in town for business and wanted to play 18 so I checked the reviews and it had 4 stars. In Phoenix, a 4 star course is pretty nice so I was expecting something half-way decent. Unfortunately, I was disappointed... maybe because its winter golf in Texas???
On the other hand, the staff gets 7 out of 5 stars. They can have the two I didn't give the overall review. Since I didn't have clubs with me they allowed me to borrow a set. These weren't the nicest clubs but I wasn't out to win the Master's (nor will I ever) so I didn't mind the set. When I got lost between holes, (because the holes are poorly marked) one of the staff came out and gave me a ride in the cart to the proper hole (I know... this makes me look like an idiot. Sometimes I am...). The course conditions were POOR (and that's being generous). One of the bunkers was just mud... it didn't even have sand in it. Pace of play was great. Walked all 18 in just under 3 hours.
After my round the bar guy cooked me some food and let me hang out for a bit before leaving (even though I was the only one there). I would go back if course conditions improved...

Not the best kept course in Waco, but you get what you pay for. The par three course can be played pretty quick, and is good for improving your short game. It is pretty great if you're looking for a cheap afternoon.

Unfortunately this once beautiful golf course has been neglected the last year. The fairways are dying from lack of water and not being taken care of. They have closed the Legends restaurant so there is no food to be had or beer for the 19th hole. The only good thing is since they do not have a liquor license you can bring your own beer.
