If you have not played Barton Creek, this has to be on the to do list. Twists, turns, blind shots, elevated tees, elevated greens, waterfalls, lakes, putts that break up hill......this course has it all. While it is definitely a challenging course, it is not ridiculous by any stretch. This course is often closed to the public (members only) but... More

As a bogey golfer (on a good day) I was a bit intimidated to take on a course like this, but the design is brilliant. Good golfers will take on the challenge to cut a few corners, and clear the various creeks and sandtraps. A crummy golfer like me can still have a great day resisting the temptation. The elevated...

Tom Fazio created a gem on this piece of land . It is rugged but fair. The fairways are wide enough for most golfers but tight enough to bite if you stray too far. The greens are large and fast but have no penal twists . The practice facility is one of the best I have seen. Try the short... More

I was charged $275 to play this course on Sunday afternoon. The fairways were decent, but somewhat burnt-out and most bunkers had the sand washed-out of them, leaving you to play off of baked mud. None had been raked since whatever storm caused the damage. The condition of the greens and tees was good. My electric cart failed after 15... More

Pricey as a resort guest unless you get a package deal. Awesome course. Must play for a golfer when in area. Take time to use the practice area.

The Canyons course at Barton Creek Resort is one of the best golf courses in Texas, designed by one of the best course architechs in the business, Tom Fazio. It features beautiful holes cut through the Texas hill country, with many elevation changes and scenic creeks and canyons on most holes. The hill country views are outstanding, and the course...

This is a beautiful resort in a fabulous location. Nestled in the hills outside Austin, you can really begin to appreciate "Hill Country", even driving out to this location. This is a first class resort with all of the amenities. While we didn't golf or play tennis-both the course and courts looked fantastic-we did enjoy the resort itself. Wait staff... More

We treated a group of our wedding guests to a round of golf here the morning of our daughter's wedding. They said it was a great course, the rental clubs, food and service were also excellent.

You simply should not miss any opportunity to visit Barton Creek, whether it is to bask in the cool (sometimes down right cold) waters of the creek or enjoy the sunshine and clean air of the rest of the park.
