Golf Clubs in Austin
Texas is a state with a rich golf history, and its capital city of Austin is no exception. Located in the heart of the Texas Triangle and on the cusp of the Texas Hill Country, golfers of all walks of life (and wallet size) will find a suitable course. Legendary instructor Harvey Penick, author of the "Little Red Book," helped shape the city's game in the early 20th century, and his reputation grew nationally thanks in part to two of his major-winning pupils, Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite. West of Austin, there are prestigious private clubs such as Penick's Austin Country Club, University of Texas Golf Club and the Crenshaw-designed Austin Golf Club, but visiting golfers should start at Omni Barton Creek, a sprawling private club that doubles as a luxury golf resort, home to two Tom Fazio designs, plus a Crenshaw and Arnold Palmer course, too.
Lions Municipal Golf Course has long been one of the City's most popular courses. In 1924, the Lions Club opened Lions Municipal, the first public golf course in the city.
Play on the same hallowed grounds where Austin golf legends Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite once honed their now-famous games under Harvey Penick's watchful guidance.
Roy Kizer Golf Course is a links-style layout spread over 200 acres in Southeast Austin. With 35 acres of lakes and 22 acres of wetlands, the golf course offers residency to migratory waterfowl in the area and is a beautiful track for all skill levels.
