Steiner Ranch Golf/The UT Golf Club
Private Country Club
Home to the University of Texas men's and women's golf teams, this course has it all. Located in the hill country over the top of Lake Austin and bordering the Balcones Natural Wildlife Preserve, the views are spectacular. Also included is a state of the art practice facility. The University of Texas traditions and first-class experiences stand out with impeccable club amenities.
As for the golf, there are many elevation changes and quite a few risk-reward type shots from the tee boxes and in the fairway. This course requires good course management and may take a few rounds before you get the hang of some of the layup shots. The final holes on the back 9 always make for good competition when everything is on the line.
