Greens in great shape. Major improvement in less than 3 weeks. Hardly anyone on the course yesterday - strange / very strange for Lions. Play it while you can before the city gives it back (lease runs out)to the land owners (University of Texas)and they turn it into a wasteland of commercial property, apartments, and maybe a school. A historic golf site gone.

This course is a local favorite. Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite played on it as kids growing up in in Austin.
