Good golf in a beautiful setting A review of Barton Creek Resort & Spa
Barton Creek is a nice resort in a beautiful Texas Hill Country setting on the west side of Austin. What a view! Barton Creek is a combo resort, country club, residential development and thus has less of an isolated resort feel. (unlike Hyatt Hill Country or La Cantera in San Antonio which have more of a self-contained resort atmosphere). The hotel itself is a large complex with a nice pool, golf, and tennis adjacent. My room was very comfortable, but nothing special. Food was good. Group meeting facilities are outstanding as is service. Golf is the highlight- the resort guests have access to the very high priced, but outstanding, Fazio courses on a rotational, every other day basis. The Crenshaw course is very good, more affordable and open every day. Barton Creek is not convenient to downtown Austin - consider Four Seasons if downtown location is more important. Bottom line - a great golf or meeting destination.
