Colo Vista Country Club -- Augusta quality at a Texas price
Review by: John Marek Texas has trees. Maybe not everywhere but in Bastrop Texas, there are trees. Colo Vista, in many ways, compairs with Augusta. Course layout is challenging and yet par or better is there for the taking. Difficult holes have large size greens making it possible for all golfers to hit greens in regulation. Golf carts are the latest on the market and are replaced each year. The clubhouse overlooks hole #1 with a panaramic view of Texas plains and Colorado River. The Professional on site comes highly qualified to both manage a course of this stature and teach or improve your golf. The staff are first-rate and they serve with a smile. I have never visited a course where people smile as much as these. They will help you with anything and I do mean anything (connected to golf). Ever played where the staff meets you on 18 as you finish, wipes clean your clubs, helps you to your car, load your clubs for you and the last visual you have as you leave this beautiful course is a smile? If you haven't clicked on their home page, I strongly suggest you do so. You haven't played on a course with a clubhouse that looks like this (unless you played at the Masters or in Scotland). There are cottages available next to the 2nd fairway if you wish to stay awhile. There is a 3-tier swimming pool, tennis court and roadrunners. Ever see a roadrunner? Deer are plentiful. Go and have fun...

Pine Forest Golf Club -- I Should Not Tell You About This Course
Review by: Mike This unpretentious public fee course in Bastrop, Texas is located approximately 35 miles east of downtown Austin. I was not expecting the quality of design, maintenance and scenic beauty that this course offers. It turned out to be one of the most enjoyable 18 holes of golf I have played. The course is beautifully maintained. The greens were in very good shape, even after an unusually wet and cloudy springtime in Central Texas. The fairways were in superb shape. The design contains one unique and interesting problem to solve after another. There was only one hole (#18) that I considered "unfair", a 10-12 degree side-sloped fairway almost the entire length of a par 5. The area around Bastrop is known as the "Lost Pines." Though Austin is only one-half hour west of this course, Pine Forest displays terrain much different from the usual concept of Texas Hill Country. There are towering pines, red cliffs, hills and gullies that roll down to the banks of the Colorado River that combine to provide a visually pleasing and varied scenic experience. Four holes have the river along narrow fairways. On the hilly part of the course, two par 3 holes start out from elevated tee boxes (overlooking greens some 140-190 yards away) that have 75-100 foot vertical drops down to the green! Lastly, the staff was eager to please and quite concerned that everything was "just right" during our time there. My stepson's cheeseburger wasn't built quite to his order, but the young woman behind the counter became nearly apoplectic when she discovered the minor mistake. Like I said, I shouldn't be telling you about this course. For green fees between $25-40 (cart included), this is the best bargain in Central Texas golf I've run across yet.
