So the back story is Crenshaw was a great putter and thus his course was designed for big greens with difficult putts. The backstory does match the experience, except that we were dissapointed with the greens as most had little interest with primarily a one...More

I played the Crenshaw course in April and it was in great shape. The staff was friendly and the greens were FAST! Great place to play and I will definitely be back.

Tee boxes, fairways and greens are all in good shape. To score you have to know where to land the ball on the greens. Very tricky putting if you play for the first time. Check out the deer and wild turkeys.

The golf gentlemen handling the clubs lost my putter cover and I found it in the storage. They are not careful at all. We played with a company and only saw the drink carts once. Bad service.

This course is challenging, but not too long (from the white tees). It's very scenic, and well maintained. The Fazio Canyons course is more spectacular, and tougher, but Crenshaw is very good, and has the advantage of being walking distance from the hotel.

First time at Barton Creek, the Crenshaw Course is tough - you'll have to not only hit the fairways but hit the fairways on the correct side or your ball will feed towards the rough everytime. Some of the fairways are slanted towards the creek...More
