Detailed description of Crystal Falls Golf Course

Crystal Falls Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Leander , Texas.

Crystal Falls Golf Course first opened for play in 1990. The course was designed by Jack Miller

Crystal Falls Golf Course is blessed with one of the greatest par 3s in Texas and some outstanding topography, this is one of those courses you’ll want to play at least once, if only for the views. In addition to the scenery, the main thing everyone talks about here is the severely sloping fairways that provide problems for those who hit the ball left-to-right.

The famous par 3 in question is the 192-yard No. 11, featuring a phenomenal view and a 200-yard drop to the green and the green is surrounded by mounds.

#12 is probably the most difficult fairway on the entire course, and demonstrates Crystal Falls’ most frequently criticized feature –the unfair slope to the fairways. A good drive can still roll off the side into the oblivion of cliffs or tall grass.

#18 plays 549 yards into another severely sloping fairway, yet berms have been put in place to prevent decent shots from rolling into the canyon. You’ll need to lay up with a mid iron in front of the creek, then carry that hazard to the green.

Blue tees: par-72, 6,654 yards, 73.4 / 131

White tees: par-72, 6,164 yards, 70.6 / 126

Red tees: par-72, 5,194 yards, 66.7 / 118

You are punished for good shots. Tee shots down the middle or favoring the left side will end up in the right rough or trees. Seems like every fairway slopes left to right. It is not a difficult course; it is unfair.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Worse than average course for the area

Crystal Falls is as one site put it "Crystal Falls is the poor man's Barton Creek". Crystal Falls forces you to think about how to play every shot and plan for the next shot.

Good Texas Hill Country course. It is a municpal course with a country club feel. Don't think about hitting the center of the fairway, everything bounces either left or right. Bring a couple of sleeves of balls.

Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
