Steeplechase in Kyle, TX

Postby GorillaTactics » Mon Jun 16, 2008 1:29 pm

I think this place is in serious contention for my favorite local course. It has 2 sets of concrete tees on most holes, plenty of water and OB, several holes with pars actually over 3, and a good mix of open shots and tight-as-balls tree shots. Sometimes both on the same hole. There are places you can get birdies but they don't come easy unless you're super accurate, and there's a couple of places where there's a fine line between an easy 2 and a save for 4 if you throw in the wrong place.

Overall a super fun and challenging course, and the marked driving range and 2 practice baskets make it even more awesome. I would highly recommend any Austin/central TX people check it out. PM me if you need directions or want to go play a round and watch me hack around in the trees. :shock:

f'real -- how bout that Kyle. i love that course. first time i went out there i was taking photos for the tee signs, and i ended up playing 3.5 rounds that day because it was so fun. it's worth the guaranteed poison ivy..

HOTT Kyle Open! can't wait.

You know, I've seen the warning signs and am pretty vigilant in looking for the plant-I have yet to get any poison ivy from there (or anywhere actually). Supposedly it's cleared out a lot since it first opened (my first time was just 2 weeks ago and I've been back about 5 times since, including early this morning). Although maybe I'm one of those lucky people who isn't allergic-although that would be strange because I'm allergic to everything else under the sun. Still not a chance I'm willing to take so I try to avoid it.

I'm thinking hard about signing up for that tourney-it would be my first "real" tournament. Why the F not right?

booyah! Just shot -6 at Steeplechase w/ no bogies. One of my best rounds ever. I apologize for all those times I said "I hate this game" over the past few days.

I played through there with my brother back in the Spring and I was shocked what a fun course it was. When we drove up it just looked like another mediocre course: basically flat, scrubby, small creek, etc... but when we actually got out and played I was blown away. Excellent design and incredible use of the available land. Some very memorable shots -- especially on the last few holes.

I highly recommend anyone in the area to get out and try a few rounds there. We got in a round each from the shorts and the longs. Would love to play a tourney there, but since it's 1,500+ miles away, odds are you won't see me down there anytime soon. But still a fun and challenging course that greatly exceeded my expectations.
Flick long and prosper.
