  • Austin, Texas

    Heading down to Austin at the end of Feb and want to play 4+ rounds. I've read a few of the threads on Austin but they go back a few years, so looking for some updated/recent info from those of you that have been recently or live down there.

    Seems we can't get onto Barton Creek without staying at the resort, is this correct?
    From what i have seen and read already, looks like the following courses are a good bet ??
    The Bandit
    Grey Rock
    Star Ranch

    We are staying just south of downtown Austin and will have hire cars.Any recco's for restaurants/nightlife are also appreciated. Age of the group is late 30's and early 40's

    Thanks !

    Lots of golf options, personal preference, price point, etc. GolfNow always handy. Definitely can't do Barton Creek without staying, but price is overrated. Some faves:

    • Wolfdancer
    • ACC
    • Star Ranch
    • The Hills
    • Falconhead
    • Avery Ranch

    If you are a member here, have them call Univ of Texas/Cimarron/Spanish Oaks and get on the course there - great track, solid history of players.

    6th street in Austin is a blast - can hit every type of bar in about a mile stretch - dive, trendy, Coyote Ugly, piano bar, etc. Warehouse district can be walked to from 6th, and has trendier/more expensive bars. Great resource for the different neighborhoods is Thrillist - https://www.thrillist.com/eat/austin...-park-rosewood

    Franklins requires a lineup, and can be a time killer, but the BBQ is some of the best. If not an aficionado, you can find many other great spots in Austin.

      Ive always really wanted to check out Riverside golf club for all the history. There are probably nicer courses but seems pretty cool and worth checking out.
