Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa (Fazio Canyons course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1999

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 Canyons course at Barton Creek Resort & Spa is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in Texas. The excellent tree-lined parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.

Stay & Play at Barton Creek: nearby luxury accommodation is available (2.5 mi), see Where2Stay section below.
