Austin TX Called "Best Golf City in America"

Like to tee it up on the local links from time to time? Golfers find that the state's capital is a great place to live. Golf Magazine named Austin, TX, "The Best Golf City in America," and for good reason. Austin offers great courses and a climate conducive to playing the game year round. The average high in January is still a manageable 58 degrees. So, grab your windbreaker and plan to work on your game throughout the year. 

Avid golfers should check out the municipal 36-hole complex at 5400 Jimmy Clay Drive, by McKinney Falls State Park. The greens fees at the Roy Kizer and Jimmy Clay Golf Courses are modest, even though they are both 18-hole championship layouts.

Roy Kizer Golf Course This par-71, 18-hole layout will challenge you, especially when the wind blows. You'll have to navigate around 22 acres of wetlands and 35 acres of lakes. Water comes into play on 14 of the 18 holes. Over three dozen bunkers and a number of large mounds demand accuracy. Roy Kizer Golf Course measures 6,819 yards from the back tees, although five sets of tees address the needs of every skill level.

Jimmy Clay Golf Course Jimmy Clay Golf Course is a 6,913-yard, par-72 Joe Finger layout that opened in 1974. Tree-lined fairways lead to elevated greens on a scenic course surrounded by Williamson Creek. You'll wrap up your round on the challenging 18th, a dogleg par-4 with water running up the left side of the fairway.

The Sur512 Apartments are near freeways that make it easy to escape to the tranquility found amidst the tree-lined fairways at many Austin golf courses. To learn more about Austin golf and other recreational possibilities, please contact us.
