We chose the Unlimited Fazio Package (appears to be the guarantee to Fazio availability) for two and were joined by another couple. In case you are wondering how much Fazio is enough ... your subsequent rounds that day are on a space available basis. We were there Texas/OU weekend and it was pretty quiet. Try alternate shot or scramble golf for your second outing of the day (why wear yourself out?). There are four golf courses: Fazio Foothills and Crenshaw Cliffside are right on the resort property (Foothills is a championship caliber track for championship caliber players - not for 18 handicappers), Fazio Canyons (lots of fun) is about two miles away (shuttle service), and the Palmer Lakeside is in Spicewood, Texas (40 minutes west!). Check in for all four is in the pro shop downstairs at the main resort building (very efficient overall). If Fazio Foothills is "cart path only", don't bother; play somewhere else. If Fazio Foothills has been overseeded within the last 10 days, it will be cart path only. Rental clubs are Calaway X-22 at $80 a day and includes a dozen Calaway balls in a logo tote bag (they try to make it a good value!).
Our room (in the original building) was very nice.
The restaurants and services are first rate. You don't need to leave the property. Free self parking is abundant.
