Outstanding Recreational Amenities
Highland Village, Rough Hollow’s stunning community center, provides swimming opportunities, classes and events for homeowners. Some of the more popular outdoor activities in the area include kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing at the Rough Hollow Yacht Club and Marina. Homeowners also enjoy working out at one of the spacious fitness facilities or swimming in one of the two luxurious neighborhood pools.
“The vision of the developer is to provide a resort-caliber community with full-time, year-round scheduled activities,” says Judd Brook, who has served as the Board of Developers’ sales and marketing team leader for the past five years. “Covering 1,800 acres, everything you need is so close; it lives like a neighborhood.”
Nicklaus Design Golf Courses and World of Tennis
Immediately adjacent to Rough Hollow, The Hills of Lakeway Country Club is home to not one, but two championship golf courses: The Hills and Flintrock Falls, both by Nicklaus Design. Golf enthusiasts are continually challenged by these dynamic courses, which stretch out across a scenic Texas Hill Country backdrop.
The Hills Country Club is home to the world-recognized Academy of Golf, which features a 500-yard learning center with target greens and three championship golf holes. In addition to golf, The Hills Country Club is home to a beautiful swimming pool, fitness facility, spa and dining room.
The Country Club is also home to World of Tennis. Featuring 26 outdoor tennis courts, 2 indoor courts and a recreational racquet shaped swimming pool, the World of Tennis is a tennis lover’s dream come true. A recent $4 million renovation and additions to the complex afford residents a new day spa, bar and a world-class fitness facility.
Exemplary Schools and a Sense of Community
In addition to an abundance of recreational choices, youngsters in Rough Hollow enjoy a quality education. Children attend outstanding schools in the award-winning Lake Travis Independent School District, which includes Lakeway and Serene Hills Elementary Schools, Hudson Bend and Lake Travis Middle Schools, and Lake Travis High School. The Texas Education Agency rates each of the schools “Exemplary.”
“We moved here for a better sense of community, schools and a healthier lifestyle for our kids,” says Jenni Rahn, a resident of Rough Hollow’s Woodlands community. “The neighborhood exceeds my expectations.”
A Welcome Balance of Laid-Back Living and Access to City Life
Easy access to downtown and The University of Texas, a short trip to the airport, and a variety of recreational opportunities in Lakeway attract and keep residents in this upscale community. With movies and music, in addition to lakeside adventures, irresistible restaurants and loads of shopping within easy access, residents treasure the unequaled appeal of their neighborhood.
Homeowners appreciate the spontaneity of getting together for barbecues in each others’ backyards or a movie night at the pavilion. Talk to people here, and they will tell you that this is a friendly community.
“We have so many options here in Rough Hollow,” says Rahn. “From boating, water skiing, long boarding and fishing to yoga classes or learning to dance or cook at the Pavilion — there’s something for everyone.” The former owner of an EMT training company, Jenni and her husband Beau came to Rough Hollow from northern California and couldn’t be happier. “From the moment we moved in, we’ve Ioved it.”
