A legendary course created by a legendary designer
The 7,153-yard, par-72 layout boasts the signature of Tom Fazio, the legendary golf designer of Barton Creek’s 18-hole Fazio Foothill’s course. Fazio’s second masterpiece is located just two miles from our Austin resort and has its own pro shop, extensive practice areas, and is the home of the revered Barton Creek Golf Academy.

This award-winning course offers numerous scenic holes lined with stately Red Oaks and Sycamore trees and features spectacular Hill Country views of Short Springs Branch, a beautiful limestone bed creek that meanders throughout the course. The 561-yard, par-5 finishing hole is tremendous and by all accounts rivals Barton Creek’s existing #18 hole on the Foothills course.
Additionally, the design and construction of the new course embody a Fazio trademark of protecting and preserving the environment. Fazio Canyons was the first resort course in Texas to be certified as an Audubon International Signature Sanctuary and was designated as a Certified Signature Sanctuary on October 22, 2003. Fazio Canyons golf course continues to receive recognition and high ratings among several publications.
