If you’re looking for one of the finest public golf experiences in Central Texas, just head north out of downtown Austin toward Georgetown. In less than thirty minutes you’ll arrive at the superlative course at the Forest Creek Golf Club.
Golf Digest recently awarded Forest Creek Golf Club the title, “Best Public Golf Course in Central Texas.” Established in 1992 and designed by Dick Phelps, the course has earned a stellar reputation for meticulous maintenance and a creative layout that challenges golfers of all skill levels. This is a pristine 7,147-yard par-72 course with plenty of tree coverage, foliage and manicured fairways.
Golfers at Forest Creek enjoy a wide range of amenities, such as a snack bar and beverage cart service. The handy Pro Shop has knowledgeable and helpful staff that will help you choose just what you need to take a few strokes off of your game. The Pro Shop is stocked with the latest accessories, apparel and equipment from the best brands in the sport, like Titleist, Callaway and Nike.
Well-Equipped Practice Center
For those looking to get a little extra practice or warm up before hitting the main course, Forest Creek Golf Club features a practice center with a driving range, a 7,000-square-foot putting green and a 40-yard short game area.
State-of-the-Art ParView GPS
Another perk on the Forest Creek course is the computerized ParView GPS System included with every golf cart. Powered by global satellites, the system provides crucial information that can dramatically contribute to the quality of your game, and your score.
With a high-resolution color monitor, ParView GPS provides graphic overviews of the hole and the green while keeping score and monitoring the pace of play. Golfers can check their exact position and distance from the hole and take a look at hazards and landmarks on the fairway. At every hole, ParView offers golfing tips and helpful advice on how to handle the shot. Golfers at Forest Creek find that this added feature makes the game more valuable, memorable and enjoyable.
