The Top Texas Golf Courses

Jun 16, 2008
Golfing in Texas has always been a big favorite for those wanting to head south and get a little sun while working some of the the most fun and toughest courses out there. We want to talk about some of those courses and why we think you should give them a shot and build about your current skills at golfing.

The first course and probably our favorite which we want to cover today is the Barton Creek Resort and Spa in Austin. They have some beautiful scenery and a very healthy yet relaxed atmosphere.

The location gives you a sense of hill country while having a modern feel to it.In all there are 72 holes of golf on this course and it can be a real bugger getting through sand traps and bunkers. The overall thought by many is that this course is of national significance to be expert level, and should not be taken lightly.

If you want to talk about the dining experience at this course, it also offers a great place to relax and have excellent dinner. The spa is very relaxing too, and many have said this spa offers some of the best service they have ever had before.

Another element you might like is the fact that the course does its best to make sure the natural hill country remains in tact. How many times have you seen a course where the land has been dozed down to make for the perfect course that someone has envisioned while destroying natural habitat? For me golfing is all about the naturalness of being outdoors and in an environment that is surrounding me naturally. Trees and hills should be left as they are. Ponds and lakes that existed previous are enjoyable as well since you know that you are not just conquering a man made thing, but a natural thing of beauty.

A particular course that is of special interest is the Fazio foothills which was elected and selected to be in the top 100 of you can play golf magazine. I am sure you are wondering why that name sounds so familiar, and that is because tom Fazio designed the course and wanted it to be playable by everyone. In 2004 there was a renovating of the course which really worked to challenge players alike to see how well they could adjust.

Another course called the Fazio Canyons was also named in the top for being a great course which offered a lot of playing action. This particular course is located about 2 miles from the location of the resort, and really goes above and beyond to not only offer a special experience which you will never forget, but also offers the beauty and the depth of golf to those novice and pro alike.

With these Texas golf courses we have mentioned, we really do hope that you enjoy the game of golf even more in Texas. There really is so much that it offers, and as they say things are bigger in Texas right. We will have more golf information for you in the future so that you can make the best decisions to figure out where to golf the following year if you decide to take a Texas golf vacation.
