Local Golf Advisors take on Fazio Foothills at Omni Barton Creek

Local Golf Advisors tee off on the first hole of the Fazio Foothills Course at Omni Barton Creek.

We recently held our first Local Golf Advisor meetup in Austin, Texas at the newly renovated and expanded Omni Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas. Home to four courses, the resort features a collection of the top-rated resort courses in the state of Texas with designs by Tom Fazio, Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw and Arnold Palmer.

Golf Advisor Managing Editor Brandon Tucker invited our avid golf reviewers to join him out on the course.

Omni Barton Creek is available only to members and resort guests, but the Local Golf Advisors were able to receive a peek at the Fazio Foothills Course, which was extensively renovated last year. Prior to closing for renovation, the course, a regular Top 100 public candidate by numerous publications, had suffered from overgrown trees that had impacted course conditions. The renovation created new viewing corridors and added more sunlight and airflow to green complexes. Bunkers were also rebuilt.

The outing included 18 holes, a friendly match and lunch afterwards. Attendees received lunch after the round and some gear thanks to our partners Dynamic Brands and Imperial Headwear. We're looking forward to our attendees' reviews of the course.
