Member Golf 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 impact.

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 Morning News.

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 Morning News.

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 approach putt.

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 man's intervention.

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.
