Private Golf Near Downtown Austin

Designer: Dave Bennett and consultant Terry Dill, 1993 by Golf Scapes, Inc. 2023 redesign by the Lanny Wadkins design firm.

Nestled just 20 minutes from downtown Austin, the Westlake Course offers a picturesque, approachable 18 holes of golf for all skill levels. Bunker complexes and water hazards guard landing areas and greens, requiring creative shotmaking and course management. Drivable par 4s and 5s offer plenty of risk/reward opportunities.

Currently undergoing a redesign by the Lanny Wadkins design firm, the updated course will further incorporate the landscape, making use of elevation changes, natural water features, live oaks, and native vegetation. The course, short game area, and driving range will reopen in November 2023.

Pro Tips

Make sure you fill your cooler at Dora's casita, then enjoy the beautiful par 5 opening hole. Drive it over, under or through the tree on the right side of the fairway. Layup to 125 yards, then play enough club into the center of the green. The approach shot plays longer than you think.

A beautiful par 3 playing downhill and down prevailing wind. Plays half a club to a club less than the yardage. The center of the green is a good play.

Pro Tips

Drive it just right of the tree on the left side of the fairway. Generally, a short shot into this undulated green works best. Play to the side of the green the flag stick is on.

Drive it straight at the telephone pole through the fairway. There’s a slight dogleg left with a green that slopes severely back to front.

Pro Tips

This dogleg left requires a drive to the middle of the fairway. Play to 125 yards out. The green is very deep and slightly uphill so consider your approach shot carefully.

Par: 3

Handicaps:
Men's 15 Women's 15

Pro Tips

This par 3 is long, over water and generally into the wind. Take enough club and play to the center of the green. Par is a great score here.

Par: 5

Men's 3 Women's 3

Yardage by Tee:

Lone Star 72.8/139 | Texan - M:70.7/130 L:77.3/147 | Jakes - M:67.0/120 | Hill Country 69.9/120

Pro Tips

This par 5 takes you back to Dora's Casita. Steer clear of the bunker on the right off the tee. Layup to 125 yards short of the green and left of the oak tree on the right. The third shot over water plays slightly uphill and into the breeze. The green is tiered so pay attention to the hole location when making your club selection.

Pro Tips

This beautiful little par 3 requires a precise yardage. It plays downwind but over water so be wise.

# 11 /

Par: 5

Handicaps:
Men's 14 Women's 14

Yardage by Tee:

Blue Tee 523

White Tee 486

Lone Star 72.8/139 | Texan - M:70.7/130 L:77.3/147 | Jakes - M:67.0/120 | Hill Country 69.9/120

Pro Tips

This dogleg-left par 5 is a 3-shotter for most but a 2-shotter for some. Bite off as much as you want off the tee. Favor the righthand side on the way into the green and you will have a chance for par or better. 

# 12 /

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 12 Women's 12

Pro Tips

This par 4 requires a drive to 125 yards from the green and no more: there is a creek down there! The second shot is downwind but you cannot be long. Center of the green is prudent.

# 13 /

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 6 Women's 4

Yardage by Tee:

Blue Tee 394

White Tee 379

Gold Tee 331

Red Tee 312

Slope:

Lone Star 72.8/139 | Texan - M:70.7/130 L:77.3/147 | Jakes - M:67.0/120 | Hill Country 69.9/120

Pro Tips

Whatever club you can hit best to the middle of the fairway, hit that club. The approach shot is slightly uphill to an undulated green. Bogey is OK and par is great here.

# 14 /

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 4 Women's 6

Yardage by Tee:

Blue Tee 363

Pro Tips

A really tight hole. Squeeze a long iron or hybrid up the right side to set up a 125-yard approach. The green is fairly flat so be patient and you’ll have a chance at par or better. 

# 15 /

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 10 Women's 10

Yardage by Tee:

Blue Tee 336

Pro Tips

Bombs away. This straight par 4 is wide open the farther you go down the fairway. Pick the right club to approach because the green is tiered, and you want to be on the proper level. Another chance at a low number.

# 16 /

Par: 5

Handicaps:
Men's 8 Women's 8

Yardage by Tee:

Blue Tee 545

White Tee 515

Gold Tee 437

Lone Star 72.8/139 | Texan - M:70.7/130 L:77.3/147 | Jakes - M:67.0/120 | Hill Country 69.9/120

Pro Tips

The last par 5. Keep your drive up the left side. If you're felling saucy, hit a fairway metal past the tree in the fairway. A conservative 2nd will be right of the tree. The tricky approach should favor the left side of the green. Par is a good score here.

# 17 /

Par: 4

Handicaps:
Men's 2 Women's 2

Yardage by Tee:

Blue Tee 399

White Tee 365

Lone Star 72.8/139 | Texan - M:70.7/130 L:77.3/147 | Jakes - M:67.0/120 | Hill Country 69.9/120

Pro Tips

This par 5 requires a drive up the center or left side for the best approach to the green. The green is undulated so try to land the approach shot to set up an uphill putt.

# 18 /

Par: 3

Handicaps:
Men's 16 Women's 16

Yardage by Tee:

Blue Tee 183

White Tee 172

Gold Tee 135

Red Tee 123

Slope:

Lone Star 72.8/139 | Texan - M:70.7/130 L:77.3/147 | Jakes - M:67.0/120 | Hill Country 69.9/120

Pro Tips

You made it, but this par 3 will keep your attention just a bit longer. Shots carry to a large green. The wind swirls around the Clubhouse in the foreground so pay attention to club selection. Short of the green is not the way to end the day. Hit the green and you have a chance for par or better.
