Championship Golf Designed by Tom Kite
Less than 10 minutes away, nearby River Place Country Club provides a discount to Glenlake residents, making the 18-hole Tom Kite-designed, par 71, championship course even more attractive to those in this neighborhood. The 6,600-yard course traverses creeks, hills and secluded canyons.
The club also offers golfers a full service practice range, putting green, chipping green and practice bunker. In addition to golf, the private club offers members and their families tennis, aquatics, spa facilities, programs for kids, and dining options.
“We are proud of our scenic hill country golf course,” says Brad Roumaya, General Manager of River Place Country Club. “With our $2 million renovation, we are now the social epicenter of this community.”
Convenient Location, Austin’s Best Parks and Highly Rated Schools
Some of Austin’s best shopping and dining is within a short drive of the Glenlake neighborhood. Many homeowners shop for groceries at the Gateway Shopping Center’s Whole Foods Market, about 15 minutes north, or a deluxe HEB grocery store about 15 minutes south. In addition, two of Austin’s most popular shopping malls, The Arboretum at Great Hills and the Village at Westlake, are located within an easy 10-15 minute drive. Together, these retail centers include over 75 stores and restaurants.
Outdoors enthusiasts love the close proximity to one of Austin’s largest parks, Emma Long Metropolitan Park, which sits adjacent to the Glenlake neighborhood. Also known as “City Park,” this popular recreational facility provides a boat dock and fishing pier, swimming areas and a leash-free run for dogs, as well as picnic and barbecue areas, sport courts, and 12 miles of beautiful nature trails.
Homeowners are also attracted to the neighborhood’s highly rated schools. Students attend Leander Independent School District’s River Place Elementary School, Four Points Middle School and Vandegrift High School. The Texas Education Agency gave both the elementary and middle schools an “Exemplary” rating and the high school a “Recognized” rating, making this a highly desirable location for residents with school-age children.
Prestigious Community, Priceless Lifestyle
The almost 200 homes of Glenlake enjoy the stunning quiet of the country while still living near town. With stunning views of acres of scenic hillsides, these estate-size homes are both architecturally beautiful and impressive.
Although very private, the community stays active and connected with a neighborhood association that keeps residents engaged through organized activities, social clubs and their website. Their neighborhood Halloween Hayride, holiday activities, Easter Egg Hunt and annual picnic are family favorites. Glenlake is a haven for those wanting a well-rounded lifestyle and a piece of Hill Country heaven.
Roumaya agrees, “We are located in an area that offers something for everyone.”
