Any day spent outside in the gorgeous Texas Hill Country is a day well spent, so it’s no surprise that Austin golf courses are among the best in the nation. Whether you are a longtime resident of the area, a visitor passing through, or a newcomer shopping for homes for sale in Austin, Texas, you owe it to yourself to take time and experience some of the great outdoor activities, including golf, that make this place so special. Here is a closer look at three of the best Austin golf courses:
- Barton Creek is the No. 1 golf resort in Texas. Each of the four championship Austin golf courses at Barton Creek is beautifully designed, from the cliff-lined fairways, waterfalls, and natural limestone caves of the Fazio Foothills, to the spectacular Hill Country views of Fazio Canyons, to the rolling hills of Crenshaw Cliffside, to the lush, hidden retreat that is Palmer Lakeside.
- The Grey Rock Golf Club offers an atmosphere of elegance, with world-class golfing, in the Texas Hill Country, mere minutes from downtown Austin. Designed by master course designer Jay Morrish, the course at Grey Rock is memorable, not least because of the hundreds of gorgeous oak trees that make it one of the most picturesque places you’ll ever play.
- The Hills of Lakeway has two clubs for its members, each offering opportunities for world-class golfing. The Hills Country Club has two courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, while the Lakeway Country Club offers thirty-six holes of golf over two extremely unique Austin golf courses.
