Austin Country Club

4408 Long Champ Dr
Austin, TX 78746   Directions

(512) 328-0090

Website

Austin Country Club has deep pot bunkers, undulating turf, and a dramatic 18th hole fairway fall, the course is reminiscent of those Scottish classics Royal Dornoch and Gullance Hill. A Texas accent is added by extensive use of massive limestone slabs, quarried on site, to build revetments for tees, greens and fairways.

Like the land where the game was born, this course has its "lowlands" and "highlands". Holes three through seven, nearest the lake, are the lowlands. The rest of the course is higher and more typical of the Texas Hill Country. The course embodies the principle of playing to restricted targets. Indiscriminate play simply to the close-mown area of the fairway will only by accident provide the comfortable approach. Similarly, a good birdie chance or an easy two-putt is unlikely unless the approach is precise enough to end on a particular part of the green. Yet aggressive play to the most desired targets often crowds the course's amply-provided hazards. Players enjoy a truly unique golfing experience.
