Great Hills Country Club
There is a lot to see and do in Austin, and you’ll find that Great Hills Country Club is one of the most upscale establishments in the area. The club is home to a world-class golf course as well as tennis courts and a junior Olympic sized swimming pool. The pool is heated during the cooler months, allowing club members to swim laps year round. There are two swim teams – one that practices throughout the year, and an additional swim team that joins summertime practices and meets. During the summer, the poolside Cabana is open for business. This is the perfect place to grab a poolside snack or a cold drink on a sunny afternoon.
Throughout the year, the main clubhouse is the site of both indoor and outdoor dining. The natural stone building with its elegant architecture is the perfect backdrop for business dinners or meetings as well as social events and parties. Members and guests enjoy the opportunity to gather for Sunday brunch or finish off a game of golf with a cold drink at the bar.
Golf at Great Hills
The club is the site of several major golf tournaments each year as well as an assortment of smaller events – and for good reason. The 18-hole golf
course, designed by architect Billy Martindale and PGA great Don January, is as challenging as it is beautiful. The front nine is spread out on gently rolling hills that provide spectacular views at every turn. The windy location challenges even the most experienced players. The back nine features white sand bunkers and thick stands of trees that are sure to provide an interesting game of golf for every player.
In addition to the main course, Great Hills Country Club is home to a driving range where players can hone their skills before taking on the challenges of the 18-hole course. When considering a move to Austin, consider a location near the club so you can take advantage of everything it has to offer.
