TBA Golf Tournament

Co-Sponsored by

Omni Barton Creek & Resorts, Coore Crenshaw Golf Course
Wednesday, May 1 • 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

When two-time Masters Champion and Austin-native Ben Crenshaw partnered with architect Bill Coore to design this course, he adhered to his design philosophy that “the best architect is nature.” With lush, wide sweeping fairways lined by densely packed trees, the Coore Crenshaw Cliffside course challenges golfers. Not an incredibly long course, the layout is forgiving for the novice, yet still challenging for the seasoned golfer. Golfers will earn every putt on undulating Champion Bermuda greens of all shapes, as challenging as they are massive. It is fitting that one of the game’s legendary putters would plot a course with greens that keep golfers on their toes. The course highlight is the 18th hole, an exciting climax that plays slightly uphill. Golfers must achieve approach shots across a running creek to land on a low-lying green, etched into the hillside.

The $195 fee per player includes transportation, breakfast, lunch, green fees, cart and range balls. Prizes will be awarded. Optional golf club rental: $82.

Attire: Men are required to wear a shirt with a collar. Ladies are required to wear a blouse with a collar or sleeves. Soft spikes are required.
