Two women, both friends and neighbors, take a moment to enjoy the view on a late Saturday afternoon. They’ve just arrived at the Avery Ranch Golf Course for golf lessons with their young daughters who are also learning to play. While the two 11-year-old girls practice putting on the warm-up green, the ladies look out across the oak-lined fairways admiring the scenic 60-acre lake that serves as a perfect backdrop for this championship, 18-hole public course.
At the same time, the husbands are in nearby Brushy Creek Park fishing with their 7- and 8-year-old sons, taking advantage of the park’s 38-acre lake and fishing pier. A favorite destination for Avery Ranch residents with miles of hike-and-bike trails, the park also includes a wildlife observation area, playground, volleyball courts and picnic areas.
“My son and I walk here every evening and fish,” says Hari Moni, who has lived in Avery Ranch for over three years. “We love spending one-on-one time and being outside together.”
