Anyone have course recommendations for Austin? Headed there this weekend and can't decide, most of the greats are private of course...

    Wolfdancer is a little bit outside of town, but probably the best public in the area.
    Aside from that, I would say Falconhead or Avery Ranch.

    Falconhead, wolfdancer for me when I visit.

    If you can get on Austin Country Club, it was the best inland course I have ever played.

    Just be prepared for the heat. The forecast is over 100 for the next week.

    They just punched the two Fazio courses and the Palmer course at Barton Creek, so if you go there, you should play the Crenshaw course. It's in great shape.

    Near Austin I have only played the Barton Creek complex of courses. They are good, but nothing I would travel out of my way to play, but if they are within 30-45 mins of where you are staying the Crenshaw course noted above is a good course. The Fazio courses are marginally better, but the Palmer is a dud.

    Both Barton Creek Fazio courses you can only play if you’re a member or staying at the resort... which I am not

    Thank you all for the recs
