The Hills of Lakeway Country Club: A Relaxing Retreat in the Texas Hill Country

Enveloped in the splendor of the Texas Hill Country lays The Hills of Lakeway Country Club just off the shores of Lake Travis. Featuring world-class golf, tennis, fitness, swimming pools, and social amenities, the private club is the hallmark of country club prestige.

New Amenities, Same Commitment to Excellence

After 30 years as a well-loved country club in the Lakeway community, The Hills of Lakeway recently completed a multi-million dollar series of renovations. These new and updated facilities further enhance the ultimate country club experience. The club has upgraded its amenities with a new sports bar, a new high-tech media lounge, new enhanced dining spaces, a new outdoor terrace, a new remodeled grill with cabana seating, and new upgraded men’s and ladies’ locker rooms.

The World of Tennis Fitness Center upgrade was particularly ambitious. The center has added new workout studios and fitness classes throughout the week. The center now has a mind & body studio, a Pilates studio, an upgraded state-of-the-art kinesis circuit training studio, a new Spin Studio, and specialized programs offering over 70 classes a week. With these complimentary group fitness classes, it’s easier and more convenient than ever before for members to get in shape and stay in shape.

Four Challenging Golf Courses

The Hills of Lakeway offers its members two clubs for world-class golf in Austin: The Hills Country Club and Lakeway Country Club. Combined, these spectacular golf clubs deliver some of the finest championship golf in Austin.

The Hills Country Club includes two stunning championship courses by world-famous, industry renowned Nicklaus Design. The Hills was the first golf course in Austin designed exclusively by Jack Nicklaus. Flintrock Falls, the second course, was designed by both Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II. No other private country club in Central Texas offers members this extraordinary caliber of golf course.

As a Member of The Hills Country Club, you can perfect your game at the world-recognized Academy of Golf. Also designed by Jack Nicklaus, this is the first site ever created and constructed specifically for learning to play better golf. The Academy complex has a 500-yard learning center with target greens and three beautiful championship golf holes.

Lakeway Country Club features 36 holes of incredible golf played over two very unique layouts. Both the Live Oak and Yaupon golf courses offer various challenges with rolling hills, blind tee shots and tree-lined fairways.

Tennis, Anyone?

The Texas Hill Country is the setting for the World of Tennis Sports Complex, which has offered members a world-class tennis experience since 1973 and remains active and vital today. Of the 16 outdoor courts, 12 are lit for evening play. The 2 indoor courts are wonderful to use due to the climate-controlled environment.  There is league play, and all kinds of tournaments year-round.

A full-service fitness facility, spa operations, locker rooms, snack bar outlet, and pristine pool completes the complex. The recreational pool is open year-round, but Life Guards are on duty at the pool from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day Weekend. Even though the pool is not heated, members of the Country Club can be found swimming in the pool on the warmer days of fall and winter.

The fitness center is 7,000 square feet with a full line of cardio equipment, a full line of strength training equipment, and two workout studios where you can participate in more than 70 group exercise classes each week. It also hosts a Pilates studio, an indoor cycling studio, and a circuit training studio. Personal training, nutritional guidance, and sports-specific training are also available. The superb staff ensures that you have a healthy and enriching experience. Plus, they make sure that you have fun!

Massage, Spa Treatments and Youth Summer Camps

So, you may be thinking, how could this country club get any better? The answer is their wonderful spa. The Hills of Lakeway Sport Spa helps you relax and revive with the aid of a professional staff. The spa offers a variety of massage therapies — shiatsu, Swedish, sports, deep tissue, hot stone massage, reflexology, maternity, polarity and more. Chemical peels, body wraps, airbrush tanning, eyelash extensions, waxing, manicures, and pedicures are all on the full service spa menu.

Camps are 7 weeks from June through August and feature golf, tennis, fitness, swimming, and other fun activities.
