AUSTIN, Texas - Avery Ranch Golf Club was only built in 2001, but its notoriety
belies its youth.
Various golf publications have lauded the golf course for its superb conditions, its
clubhouse, its dining area, its overall
design and even its cart girls. Hosting the annual Dennis Quaid Charity Weekend, a
golf event and gala that benefits local
children\'s charities, garners the course more attention.
Course architect Andy Raugust - a longtime member of the Jack Nicklaus design team
who worked on the spectacular
Cabo del Sol in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - pairs the panoramic vistas and gentle
rolling hills with oak-lined fairways and a
The 226-acre site northwest of downtown Austin, long ago home to Native American
tribes and a military post, presented
one major design hurdle, heavy deposits of limestone. Raugust used dynamite on five
holes to blast out of some of the
rock, but otherwise terrain changes were minor.
\"The first time I visited the property, I thought it was a great piece of land that
was notorious for rock,\" he said. \"Avery
Ranch was a relatively easy course to design because the land actually dictated
where the course should go. The trees
were spaced out pretty well throughout the course, and we really didn\'t have to do
much alteration to the land.\"
The natural beauty is there from the start. The par-4, 377-yard first plays past an
inlet of Brushy Creek, which runs
throughout the course and offers various scenic challenges. You need to clear the
creek off the tee and stay between the
trees lining both sides of the fairway, as they do on most holes.
