According to the late, great, Arnold Palmer, golf is the greatest game ever invented, and millions of golf fans agree with him. For the avid golfer, it isn't just a game, it's a way of life, which often leads the golfer on a quest to find the ultimate course, complete with pristine rolling greens and the scenic beauty of the outdoors. In fact, seeking out these courses often leads the golfer to combine their love of the sport with their love of travel. Ben Hogan is quoted as saying, "I have found the game to be, in all factualness, a universal language wherever I traveled at home or abroad."
Texas has nearly 1,100 courses and, thanks to the warm climate, it's one of the most welcoming states to golfers. In fact, many courses are open year-round, such as the Teravista Golf Club, one of the highest-rated golf courses near Austin TX. Not only is this 18-hole course known for maintaining the best greens in the Austin area, they have tees for all skill levels, golf lessons, a Player's Club for range practice, a membership program, special event planning, a café, and a pro shop.
Recently awarded as a "beginner friendly" course by the National Golf Course Owners Association, this club offers 5 different tees for varying levels of skill, from the beginner to the professional. As a result, the novice golfer can remain at Teravista as their skills grow, continuing to more difficult tees, rather than being forced to find alternate courses.
The J.L. Lewis Golf Academy at Teravista, led by the 2-time PGA Tour winner with over 20 years of experience, offers lessons for juniors as well as adults and can be purchased in 1/2 hour and 1-hour increments, as well as in packages. Additionally, private lessons with Mr. Lewis may also be scheduled.
The Player's Club allows members the freedom to practice their game for free at any time as well as attend weekly clinics designed to assist golfers in increasing their knowledge of the game. There are other perks of membership as well, including: one or two free rounds of golf per month, 2 free beers with every round played, a 20% discount on paid green fees, and 5-day advanced registration for tee times. Currently, there are two levels of membership, silver and bronze.
Teravista offers club memberships for singles, couples, and families. The exclusive benefits of membership include: free carts, free range balls, no cart fees, a custom bag tag, member pricing on breakfast and lunch, admission to golf groups and events, member pricing for lessons, and members only guest rates.
Special events, such as weddings and golf tournaments, are welcome at the Teravista Golf Club. The Ranch House provides an ideal, rustic setting for the wedding of a lifetime, and the event and catering staff are available to assist. For those planning a tournament, the event staff will aid in customizing all aspects of the event for a group of any size.
The Caldwell Café is open daily, to members as well as the public, from 7:15 a.m. until 6:30 p.m, though those hours vary by season, but the café is open year round. It features an all-American menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads, a variety of beer, and much more.
The Pro Shop maintains stock of all the gear a golfer needs to play their best, including a select variety of golf clubs, balls, tees, gloves, clothing items and much more. This high-quality gear includes name brands such as Under Armour, Nike, Travis Mathew, and Titleist, to name a few. Additionally, if they do not have a requested item in stock, they are more than happy to place a special order for a customer.
In summary, if planning to travel to any golf courses near Austin, TX, the Teravista Golf Club may very well end up being the first, and only, stop for any golfer. With its all-inclusive amenities and beautiful, rolling greens, there is no need to look elsewhere.
