4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa (Fazio Foothills course) Est. 1986

Where2Golf says: 

Barton Creek Resort & Spa is home to four 18-hole championship courses. The Fazio Foothills and Coore Crenshaw courses are located at the main resort centre, while the Fazio Canyons (generally the highest-rated of the four) is two miles from the resort centre, and Palmer Lakeside is 26 miles away.

The Fazio Foothills course, typically the second highest-rated of the Barton Creek quartet, is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Texas. This tree-lined and open parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.
