Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa (Palmer Lakeside course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa (Palmer Lakeside 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 Palmer Lakeside course is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
