Austin Country Club sits on the eastern edge of Texas Hill Country land.  Founded in 1899, the outstanding private club is one of the oldest clubs in Texas and the brainchild and love of Lewis Hancock.  Relocating to Austin TX homes around Austin Country Club may run anywhere from the high $300s to $3M.  For those interested in a vacation cabin, Austin real estate near the prestigious Austin Country Club is located about 1.5 hours west of Fredericksburg homes.  

Oak trees in the rolling hills provide a serene backdrop for the Club amenities beginning with an outstanding 18-hole Pete Dye golf course.  Austin Country Club offers Members access to a palatial Clubhouse featuring dining areas, large ballroom, meeting room, and locker rooms for men and women.  Then lighted tennis courts (two with clay surfacing), heated swimming pool, fitness facility, and 42 boat slips ensure Members and Guests participation in a plethora of healthy recreational activities.   

Located north along Loop 360, just south of the Colorado River, the Austin Country Club golf course follows the natural assets of the region.  The fairways are impeccable.  Nonetheless, it took one of the greatest golf instructors of all time to coach golfers how to avoid the rough.  Straight shooters have an easier time on the exceptional course.

Services at Austin Country Club exceed expectations and enhance the exclusive invitation-only membership.  That is tribute to its humble beginnings under the exacting direction of Hancock, which set the high standards still alive today.  A distinguished lifetime resident, Hancock served as Mayor, president of the oldest bank, and founded the Hancock Opera House.  

Austin Golf Club was born of his determination to bring balance to the lifestyle of the businessman.  Employing a skilled art of persuasion, he convinced families of the benefit of relaxation, exercise, sunshine and fresh air if they donated to buy land and open the club.  He became President of the Club for a 17-year period and established rules of golf and social procedures.  During the 20th century, the Club moved twice and became a "country" club.  It always kept to Hancock's original atmosphere of dignity and privilege.

Today, in its location at the Davenport Ranch, the Country Club community thrives in a convenient location accessible to the metropolitan and Hill Country amenities.  For information about relocation and real estate in the hills, click here to contact Dale Cook or call 830-997-1035.
