If you are heading to Austin, Texas, you may already know that it’s known for golf, and there are many golf courses near Austin TX worth a closer look
Roughly 25 miles from Austin is Teravista Golf Club in Round Rock, Texas. This 18-hole course overlooks beautiful Texas Hill Country. The luxurious views extend for 30 miles with added natural attractions that are breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. While the view itself is nothing short of splendid, you will be most likely there for the holes, so here is what you will need to know about Teravista.
- Tournaments Here are an Event to Remember
Typically, hosting a tournament involves green and cart fees for each golfer, and possibly a custom menu or buffet. There may also be special hole assignments, scorecards, markers and gift certificates for finalists. However, the tournaments at this 7,200-yard course are packed with friendly extras, including a complementary PGA golf professional who will assist throughout the entire tournament. Plus, rather than a buffet, there is a full-service restaurant available for catering. Some next level amenities offered include custom logo golf balls, coolers, pouches, hats and yardage guides to push your tournament over the edge.
- There Are GolfBoards
Chances are that you’ve heard of GolfBoards but have not tried one yet. You may also never have because, with typical tee time, all that’s needed are golf clubs and a caddy. According to Golfboard, the company, “GolfBoard provides players the same independence and freedom as walking, but with much greater speed and excitement.”
