Privileges at Barton Creek Resort & Spa
One of the privileges of Membership while in
residence at The Owners Club® at Barton Creek is
resort access to four golf courses at cart fee
only rates for designated Members. Members'
guests enjoy a reduced guest greens fee that
includes the cart fee. Designed by masters Tom
Fazio, Arnold Palmer and Ben Crenshaw, each
course is enhanced by the Resorts’ spectacular
natural setting in the Texas Hill Country.
Fazio Foothills Golf Course
Barton Creek Resort & Spa's Signature golf
course is an astonishingly beautiful design
masterpiece by Tom Fazio. The architectural
layout features dramatic cliff-lined fairways,
natural limestone caves, waterfalls and superb
TiffEagle Bermuda greens which give golfers 18
holes of pure pleasure with no lack of
challenge. This unforgettable golfing experience
provides plenty of elevation change and visual
Tom Fazio puts a premium on long, accurate
drives. The small, Champions Bermuda greens with
undulating aprons and grass bunkers make the
Fazio Foothills course a shot-maker's paradise.
The six different sets of tee boxes appeal to a
wide variety of skill levels.
Established in 1986, the Fazio Foothills course
ranks at the top of all experts' lists.
Golfweek magazine rates the Foothills course
as #4 among America's 50 best Resort Courses.
The course is also named the Best Resort Course
in Texas and has the distinction of consistently
having several holes listed among the State's
Best or Most Beautiful holes (holes
#12,4,9,16,10,18) according to The Dallas
Fazio Canyons Golf Course
Barton Creek Resort & Spa's newest course, Fazio
Canyons was recently named the #1 Course in
Texas according to Golfweek Magazine (2003).
The Dallas Morning News also rates the
Canyons among the best Resort Courses in Texas.
The 7,161-yard, par-72 layout boasts the
signature of Tom Fazio, the legendary golf
designer of Barton Creek's existing 18-hole
Fazio Foothills course. Fazio's second
masterpiece is located just two miles from the
Resort's main clubhouse and has its own pro shop
and extensive practice areas.
The course offers numerous scenic holes lined
with stately red oaks and sycamore trees and
features spectacular Hill Country views of Short
Springs Branch, a beautiful limestone bed creek
which meanders throughout the course. The
561-yard, par-5 finishing hole is tremendous,
and by all accounts, it rivals Barton Creek's
existing # 18 hole on the Foothills course.
Additionally, the design and construction of the
new course embody a Fazio trademark of
protecting and preserving the environment. The
Fazio Canyons course is among the first courses
in the country with the Signature designation in
the Certified Audubon Sanctuary System.
Crenshaw Cliffside Course
The natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country is
the focus of course architects, Ben Crenshaw and
Bill Coore. Rolling hills, natural plateaus,
soft contours and native vegetation are
harmoniously woven into a playable championship
course that provides a variety of interesting
holes to delight Members and visitors alike.
Austin's well-known native son and Barton Creek
Resort & Spa's touring professional, Ben
Crenshaw, admits his is an "old-style"
philosophy. "We believe the best architect is
nature and the best players' courses make good
use of the natural terrain. We let the land
dictate the routing rather than imposing
ourselves on the landscape." Indeed, Crenshaw's
course plays across the land quite naturally and
most magically, and it was rated 38th among the
"50 Best Courses in Texas" by The Dallas
As an ardent student of golf's history, Crenshaw
offers a rare taste of the traditional layout in
his design. The course features broad, rolling
fairways, widely-varied green sizes and is a
fitting tribute to the way the game was once
played. The large, undulating putting surfaces
give golfers their biggest challenge. While the
average golfer will attempt to use the natural
slopes to aid an approach shot, the low handicap
player faces the challenge of positioning the
ball at the most advantageous point for an
As part of environmentally-sensitive
considerations, durable grasses were utilized.
Bermuda 419 is used on the fairways and Tifdwarf
Bermuda for the greens. These drought and heat
tolerant native grasses lessen the need for
The 18th hole is an exciting climax which plays
slightly uphill. Approach shots must cross a
running creek to land on a low-lying green which
seems etched into the hillside. The Crenshaw
Cliffside Course is both forgiving for the
novice and challenging for the seasoned golfer.
Palmer Lakeside Course
Ideally perched on a secluded hilltop
overlooking Lake Travis, and located just 25
miles west of Barton Creek Resort & Spa, Barton
Creek Lakeside is a hidden retreat that rewards
Members and guests with striking, panoramic lake
views and twilight glimpses of white-tail deer.
Lakeside's extraordinary championship golf
course, designed by the King of Golf, Arnold
Palmer, opened for play in 1986. Palmer's course
is fun for proficient players and quite
manageable for novices - offering exceptional
enjoyment for every class of golfer.
Prowess with the driver is a plus for a good
round of golf, and Palmer's course is a
big-hitter's delight. Professional golfers rate
Palmer's design among the "Top Ten Texas
Courses" and consider Lakeside to have the best
Champions Bermuda greens in the state. A
cascading waterfall and native flora highlight
Lakeside's signature 11th hole, a magnificent
par-three. Indeed, The Dallas Morning News
ranks it among the "18 Most Beautiful Courses in
Texas". The par-five 12th and par-four 13th
holes are both doglegs left with sloping
fairways that reward any player who can "turn
the ball over and take it deep."
Guests and club-Members alike enjoy the quiet
refuge of Lakeside's clubhouse retreat which
overlooks the golf course and affords a lake
view that is nothing short of spectacular.
