Barton Creek

Hi, I’m Shannon Schmitz and this is the Austin Street Beat. Today I’d like to take you to a socialite and golf-lover’s paradise: the Barton Creek neighborhood.

Barton Creek is located about 15 minutes from downtown Austin, just south of Bee Caves road and west of Capital of Texas Highway.

There are fifteen distinctively different subdivisions in the area including The Estates of Barton Creek, Calera, Escala, Governor’s Hill, Mirador, North Rim, The Foothills of Barton Creek, The Ridge, The Fairways, Watersmark, Wimberly Lane, and the Woods (1, 2 and 3).

The crown jewel of the area is the Barton Creek Resort and Spa that resides on 4,000 secluded acres of rolling hills. There you’ll find three 18-hole golf courses designed by Austin native Ben Crenshaw and Tom Fazio, making Barton Creek a must-go for golf junkies.

Other amenities include a full service spa, extensive tennis facility and a wide array of kid’s activities – including summer camps, kids club and many other social events. The hotel and conference center, recently purchased by Omni hotels, offers a super-friendly membership staff.

Area homes range from $500,000 to over $4 Million, and often come with a social membership with access to the fitness center and spa.

Fantastic golf courses, incredible tennis facilities, social events and a club that offers as much pampering as you desire, the Barton Creek neighborhood appeals to those who enjoy the finer things in life.

Thank you for joining me today. Please call me if you have questions about Barton Creek or any other Austin Community.
