Flying to Austin Feb 23-25 where to stay?

Hi All,

A friend and I randomly booked a flight from Boston to Austin so we could play a few rounds of golf and escape the cold. Any suggestions on a decent hotel? We will rent a car, but don't want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere. Thanks!

Ps - any course suggestions are appreciated too.

Austin, Texas

For such a short visit, the only thing that comes to mind is Hyatt Lost Pines Resort about 13 miles east of AIB airport. It his huge and has a lovely golf course. Lots of dining options, big separate bar/pub, grab & go Starbucks with sandwiches/snacks, seperate dining for golfers in building where you get your cart, spa and on a small river

Lost Pines is lovely, but it is in the middle of nowhere. If you want to enjoy both golf and what Austin has to offer (music, bars)... then you'll want to stay downtown and commit to driving for golf. Barton Creek resort is probably a 15-20 minute drive from downtown (depending when you leave and how long it takes to get on Loop 1.)

There's courses in Lakeway and at RiverPlace Country Club, but I don't know what their guest policies are. They'd both be around 30 minutes from downtown.
