<div class="IPBDescription">Looking for playing partners</div>I moved to Austin about 7-8 months ago after getting married and started working. A lot of my golfing friends from college live in DFW or Houston so I really have no golfing buddies here in Austin. I am about a 13 index player and usually play up at Avery Ranch, Falconhead, or River Place. I'll occasionally hit up the Jimmy Clay/Roy Kizer courses if I need some confidence booster rounds ha. <br />
<br />
If you live in the Austin area and play golf often, feel free to reach out. I'm just looking to find some decent guys to play with so I don't have to deal with getting paired up with the rando hackers around here <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Keep my contact handy next time you are looking. Best time for me is Friday afternoons, and Avery, Teravista, Star, Falconhead and Cowan Creek are my normal rotation.

    Hit me up, I play Star regularly. Wednesday's there are $25 deals at Kizer with cart, might be playing there next week...will be early before the jokers wake up though.

    I am in Austin for about a week visiting my sister. Was about to make a post on a good course to practice at here in the round rock/ north Austin area. Can't play because of a stress fracture in my foot but can putt and work on my short game. Any recommendations on a course in the area with a decent short game area? <br />
    <br />
    Teraverde has decent reviews and is about 15 minutes away? How is falcon head?

    Falconhead has the best short game area....but that is about an hour from Round Rock, because of all the stop lights.<br />
    <br />
    Teravista is pretty good....great putting green, chipping area is decent. Avery Ranch is close also, decent putting greens and chipping.

    From the courses I usually go to, Falconhead has the best putting surfaces and chipping areas. I know they aerated like last week so the greens might not be in as good of shape as they usually are, but they are quick and roll true.

    Thanks for the input! I didn't realize Falconhead was that far away from me. Looks like Teravista is only about 15-20 away, so I'll check that one out. Any word on Forest Creek? It looks to be about the same distance?

    Been meaning to post this for the Austin Golfers.. so here goes<br />
    <br />
    1) If you want to play in a league google austin golf association (AGA). They play on the public courses and its a good way to meet new Golfing buddies. I am a member and its a lot of fun.<br />
    <br />
    2) Check out the Harvey Penick golf campus. Nice 9 hole track. Great practice for your iron game and its a challenging track as well. Also you will be supporting the local first tee organization. Feel free to drop off old equipment etc as donation.<br />
    <br />
    3) The have a players booklet for $100 that lets you play some of the premier courses for just $25. Great deal and you get to play most of the Austin courses.<br />
    http://www.thefirstt...&NS=GAU&APP=106<br />
    <br />
    course list:<br />
    <br />
    Alsatian Golf Club<br />
    Apple Rock Golf Course - Horseshoe Bay Resort<br />
    Avery Ranch Golf Club<br />
    Berry Creek Country Club<br />
    Blackhawk Golf Club<br />
    Bridlewood Golf Club<br />
    Crystal Falls Golf Course<br />
    Delaware Springs<br />
    Falconhead Golf Club<br />
    Forest Creek Golf Club<br />
    Golf Club of Texas at Briggs Ranch<br />
    Great Hills Country Club<br />
    Harvey Penick Golf Course<br />
    Jimmy Clay Golf Course<br />
    Lakecliff Country Club<br />
    Lakeway Country Club - Live Oak<br />
    Lakeway Country Club - Yaupon<br />
    Lantana Golf Club<br />
    Onion Creek Club<br />
    River Place Country Club<br />
    Riverhill Country Club<br />
    Riverside Golf Course<br />
    Roy Kizer Golf Course<br />
    Star Ranch Golf Club<br />
    Twin Creeks Country Club<br />
    Wolfdancer Golf Club<br />
    <br />
    4) If enough WRXers get's the booklet we can have a get together to play one of the nice course like AppleRock?<br />
    <br />
    5) You might end up playing with some good golfers at Clay/Kizer.. I usually play as a single and have been paired up with other single scratch golfers. But then, I usually am there early morning before the hacks show up <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Teravista just punched their greens, holes the size of a pencil and sanded. Practiced there today. Forest Creek is a placement course and challenging if you don't put it in the right spots. Greens are "okay". Avery Ranch is in FANTASTIC shape, my playing buddy last Sunday wanted to lie down in the fairway to take a nap....a green carpet! Terrific layout, too.<br />
    <br />
    Keep me in mind for golf sometime . . . I'll play Teravista, Avery, Star Ranch or Forest Creek. Want to play Grey Rock south, too.<br />
    <br />

    I go down and play at Barton Creek 3-4 weekends per year. Usually stick to the Fazio courses, but will occasionally go play Lakeside. Avoid the Crenshaw course as much as I can. Will be down a couple of times this summer, but not until July and August. Sometimes have a spot open for a late Thursday round and get to play at a discount. <br />
    <br />
    I don't know exact dates, but mid July will be my next trip. Be glad to have you join me/us.

    EP, I have my weekly skins game at Star Ranch Sunday so will be out there but can't join you. You can come out meet up on the range, grab a walk on round and then join us for drinks afterwards. My tee time is 2:30 and I'll be on the range/putting green around 1.<br />
    <br />
    BTW Steve, Star is in FANTASTIC shape. It is on the edge of Round Rock and Hutto, as good as Teravista ever is (and not recently punched) and has a great short game area with 4 different greens for chipping and putting.

    Oh yeah and as EP said Falconhead just punched last week. If its anything like it was last year when they did a punch, I'd stay away for a while...they sand heavily with course sand and either 'forget' to or won't mow close at all. Some of the worst punching I have seen locally.

    Little late on this thread, but Delaware Springs in Burnet, is completely worth the drive. It is cheap and amazing.

    Its too hot to play in Austin right now. Golfnow has some insane deals cause of the heat and they aptly titled as 'hot deals'.<br />
    I cannot bring myself to go out and play thou... I don't mind the high 90's, but 105 is no fun.

    I am a member there. Just joined 3-4 months ago after being a member at grey rock previously.<br />
    <br />
    Lost Creek is Better in the following areas (everything).<br />
    -Course Condition<br />
    -Staff<br />
    -Range and Practice Areas<br />
    -Pools<br />
    -Tennis<br />
    -Gym is nothing to write home about, but they have one.<br />
    -Mens loker room is awesome. Pool table, shuffle board, free golden tee, tv's, and a full bar<br />
    -More challenging than Grey Rock (i think an easy track) from the tips, it's a much tighter pick your spots course.<br />
    -Restaurant<br />
    -Members....This is a big one. I have literally met 1 person that I do not care for. Everyone is great, down to earth, and a lot are Barton Creek defects who couldnt handle the snobs.

    Lost Creek is an older country club but it has a great feel to it. It's tucked away in Lost Creek (obviously) and the course plays pretty tough. I've only played there a number of times because I'm not a member; Just go with a friend who is a member and play as a guest. <br />
    <br />
    I also agree on the heat comment. It is absolutely scorching right now so I'm trying to stay away unless I play a 7am tee time. As always, let me know if any of you guys would like to go out and play sometime.

    Good to see some Austin golfers up on the forums. I play Kizer/Clay mostly, but I jump around on the weekends I jump around to whichever nice course I can find a deal on. Anyone interested in a round on the weekend, let me know.

    Yes! I love winter golf in Austin... the courses are deserted and as long as it ain't raining, I'm out there even if it is in the 30's

    anyone know when MoWilly will reopen? I read that the club house will only get done early next year, but I was hoping that the course would open earlier.

    MoWilly - I heard December from a buddy of mine that works there and I don't think Lions is scheduled to close until 2019.<br />
    <br />
    I'd love to meet up with some of you guys to play, but I'm a hacker and by what's been posted in this thread, most are scratch players and want to avoid playing with guys like me, oh well...
