The golf course is located within Lake Murray State Park and for a State Park course it is in pretty good shape and has a lot of fun holes. There are a number of dog legs, some narrow tree lined fairways, and a couple holes with water. You can play 18 holes for around $30 including the cart which makes it an excellent course for the value. For a State Park it is in good condition. The greens are ok, small, and not very difficult. Lake Murray State Park has a lodge, some cabins, great campsites on the lake, tennis courts, excellent bike trails, and four very cool floating cabins in a nice cove.
Rates: $30.00 to $30.00
Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
