Rolling fairways, perfectly manicured putting greens, and picturesque scenery surrounding it all—you don’t have to look far to find great golfing in Texas. Whether you simply want to hit the driving range or spend all day on the same course as the pros, great golfing abounds in the Texas Hill Country.
If you’re looking to spend less time behind the wheel and more time behind a golf club, then you’ll want to check out the Dripping Springs Country Club. This local driving range is located at 3000 W. Hwy. 290 and is open to the public, making it an ideal place for those who are just getting started in the sport and may not be ready to take the leap into a membership club.
The family-owned and operated club is the perfect place to burn off some steam after work or break in a new driving wedge. In addition to the standard bucket-of-golf-balls style driving range, the club uses Top Tracer technology, utilizing the same tracking technology seen in televised golf broadcasts. There’s also a putting green and a snack bar on-site to add to the experience. And if you’re looking to step up your golf game and refine your skills, the club can also set you up with an area pro for private lessons.
If you’re looking to explore what else the area has to offer, you should make a point to check out Spanish Oaks Golf Club. As the club’s website boasts, “Spanish Oaks provides an opportunity to play golf as it was meant to be played.” That statement certainly rings true with a PGA-designed 18-hole course, practice facilities for pitching, chipping, and putting, as well as two comfort stations located throughout the course.
The club does require players to have a membership or be guests of a member to play, but with extra amenities such as a pool, fully stocked fish pond, and full-service restaurant, the membership fee truly provides a world-class golfing experience.
Another club that we’d be remiss to not mention is the Austin Country Club. The private country club was founded in 1899 and spans over 180 acres. Located just 10 miles outside of Austin, it’s not only one of the oldest clubs in the country, but is perhaps the area’s most beautiful. Some of the sport’s biggest names played the course and it’s home to the annual Dell Technologies Match Play tournament (March 22-26). Attendees will have the chance to watch golf’s top athletes including Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, and Scottie Scheffler play on this iconic course.
Yet another fantastic course that’s sure to challenge golfers is the 18-hole course found at Grey Rock Golf Club. Spread over 160 acres with “stately oaks and majestic views,” this course that’s only minutes away from downtown Austin might as well be a Texas Hill Country oasis. The club is open to the public and also offers golf and tennis lessons and has events facilities, as well as a restaurant and pro shop.
No matter your skill level, a great game of golf is close by for Dripping Springs residents. Contact the Caliterra team if you’d like to learn more about the beautiful homes of this master-planned community to be close to golf courses.
