ShadowGlen Golf Club: An Award-Winning Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell Public Golf Course

ShadowGlen Golf Club is located just 15 minutes north of downtown Austin in Manor. When the course opened in 2004, it was included in Golf Digest’s “Top 10 Best New Golf Courses.” The accolades were well deserved. This 18-hole championship golf course is exciting for all levels of players.

With picturesque terrain, rolling hills, and streams meandering throughout the 18 holes, this is a course that any golfer will enjoy. Recently, ShadowGlen was ranked by AvidGolfer magazine as one of “Austin’s 10 Best Public Golf Courses of 2013.” And local golf enthusiasts will attest to the accuracy of AvidGolfer’s ratings.

At 7,174 yards, mastering ShadowGlen can be quite a feat. If you want to have a fun game of golf and a slightly less challenging game, move up to the next set of tees. Regardless of where you choose to start the game, you will enjoy the golfing experience and the beauty of the greens.

When renowned course designers Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell built and designed the course, they made sure to include plenty of challenges with creeks, mounds, bunkers and berms. In fact, Roy Bechtol said, “This may be my most impressive work yet. If I did it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing.”

Player Development and Special Programs at ShadowGlen

The newly renovated practice facilities include a 380-yard driving range, various target greens and a 3,000 square foot putting green. In 2011, the short game facility was installed fully equipped with multiple bunkers and course-like conditions to help improve your skills.

ShadowGlen has a wonderful player development program to help golfers reach their goals. The program also has year-round benefits including unlimited use of the practice range, practice putting greens, and a short game center, as well as unlimited range balls 7 days a week, discounted lessons and free clinics.

In addition, Junior Golf Camps are available and monthly events are held year round. The professional staff at ShadowGlen also helps organize and host special tournaments from 20 up to 150 players.

The Clubhouse, Foundry Grill and Special Occasions

In 2007, ShadowGlen opened the Clubhouse, which was quickly nominated for “Best New Clubhouse” by Golf Inc. The pro shop carries various lines of equipment as well as Nike golf apparel and accessories, and the expert staff will help guide you to the right products for your skill level and style of play.

The Foundry Grill serves up comfort food which can be enjoyed in the dining room, or on the porch or patio areas where you can observe the course as you enjoy your meal. Built with oversized windows that provide an incredible view of the 18th hole, Foundry Grill is open to the public for dine in and take out service.

The superior views, professional staff and southern hospitality make the exclusive golf course property perfect for your special event. A few of the occasions that have been successfully held at the club are business meetings, corporate outings, parties, receptions, and weddings. On-site coordinators, bartenders, and wait staff make events unforgettable. A catering team can help craft a custom menu, or provide a proven winner from their repertoire. The beautifully furnished banquet facility has capacity for small or large groups.
