“I work very hard for a living,” says Kunal Patel, a longtime River Place resident who commutes downtown every day for a job in the financial services industry. “I expect my home life to be rewarding, and this neighborhood helps make that a reality.”
Peaceful Isolation for a Perfect Game of Golf
The River Place Golf Course is located high in the hills of northwest Austin, with many of the homes overlooking the glistening waters of Lake Austin. From the waterfront summit where the River Place neighborhood begins, it’s 10 minutes of breathtaking views driving along the winding terrace road that leads to the golf course. The drive, the elevation high atop a prominent peak, and the privacy of the neighborhood give residents the sense of peaceful isolation required for a perfect game of golf.
Combining gorgeous rolling hills with its creeks and canyons, the 18-hole course is an ideal environment to casually enjoy a relaxing round of golf or join a team for a more competitive match. River Place has both a men’s and women’s golf association, which coordinate tournaments, weekly tee times, events and social activities for players of all ages and skill levels.
“You can unwind here, conduct casual business meetings or make new friends,” says Sally Lincoln, who schedules golf outings for residents at The River Place Golf Course. “As a community, we’re like-minded individuals who work hard to enjoy this kind of luxury. We’re tucked away, too, and so it’s like we’re this great secret nobody knows about.”
An Uncommon Luxury
River Place is a real treasure. Secluded, but inclusive, it’s the ideal balance between a prestigious environment and an open-minded community. Here, residents find security in the Texas Hill Country’s rugged terrain, peace with a panoramic view of Lake Austin, and happiness in sharing in all that the tight-knit neighborhood has to offer their families and their neighbors.
“This is a place for people with determination, as well as goals and dedication to keeping their community beautiful,” says Sally Lincoln. “River Place is just a great place to live.”
