Situated on 226 acres in northwest Austin, the Avery Ranch Golf Club was built in 2002 by revered former Jack Nicklaus designer Andrew Raugust. Bordered by Lake Avery, this upscale and beautifully crafted 18-hole championship course brims with spectacular views of wooded areas, natural limestone cuts, as well as the lake, and of course, the huge, wide-open Texas sky.
Raugust’s portfolio consists of premiere golf courses including The Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton, California, Deer Ridge Golf Club in Brentwood, California, Palmilla Golf Club in Los Cabos, Mexico and Camas Meadows Golf Club in Camas, Washington. Raugust has also remodeled and renovated several august golf clubs throughout California.
Considered by many to be among Raugust’s best designs, Avery Ranch Golf Course was rated as the “Top Luxury Course” in Central Texas and rated the “Best Place to Hold a Corporate Event” by AvidGolfer Magazine in 2013. The course also received 4 ½ stars and “Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest.
Enjoy Flexible Fun Before, During, and After a Round
Open to the public with discounts and other special privileges for members, the par 72 course offers a variety of tee placements resulting in lengths of 7,121 yards for experts to 4,924 yards for the novice. Avid golf players, weekend duffers, and those who simply appreciate the wonders of nature enjoy the enduring beauty of Avery Ranch Golf Course. Offering several membership options such as the Gold Membership, Weekday Membership and Senior Membership, golfers can also get daily rates and sometimes find online specials.
A place to learn as well as play, Avery Ranch Golf Academy provides individual lessons for adult and junior golfers as well as a Ladies’ Clinic on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The Avery Ranch Golf Shop is well stocked with quality equipment and fine golfing apparel.
Practice facilities offer two putting greens with over 20,000 square feet so you can have fun while you work on your game. For a meal, snack or just a drink, the Sunset Bar & Grill offers spectacular southwestern views of 60-acre Lake Avery and generous swaths of golf course green. Affordable food served with class, the juicy burgers, flavorful sandwiches, healthy salads and grilled veggies are all wonderful comfort foods to enjoy along with the margaritas and other adult beverages after a round.
Much More Than a Premier, Luxury Golf Course
The staff at Avery Ranch Golf Club offers impeccable service for events held in either of two large conference rooms that can accommodate up to 200 guests each. The location and service mean the club is a popular facility for charity fundraisers and corporate occasions. Golf tournaments are hosted frequently throughout the year with experienced PGA professionals on-site. Such tournaments include the annual Austin Firefighter’s Outreach Fund Tournament and the Grim Golfer Classic where costumes are encouraged and a special prize awarded to whoever comes up with the best costume — all in the spirit of Halloween.
In addition to offering terrific golf, the Avery Ranch Golf Club is a premiere location for one of the most important days in many people’s lives: their wedding day. With spectacular views and an ideal setting, Avery Ranch’s Lakeside Wedding Garden and Lakeview Banquet Room provide a heavenly location for bride, groom and guests. A popular spot for special occasions, amenities include a private bridal dressing room and a professional, in-house, full-service catering team that offers a number of delicious menus and options to choose from.
