Golf in Texas:
Texas Hill Country

Texas Hill Country is made up of lakes, spring-fed rivers and rolling hills, creating some of the most beautiful landscape in central Texas. River rafts, canoes and sailboats are as much a part of daily life as cowboy boots.

The bloom of spring wildflowers tuns the green hills into a breathtaking sight. The state capital in Austin is a perfect place to

begin exploring Hill Country. In addition to the natural beauty of the area, small communities steeped in European tradition offer a great source of antique shopping and wonderful cuisine.

For those who wish to pursue activities other than golf, the Hill Country has plenty to offer.

From Austin head north to Georgetown, with its restored Victorian buildings and pretty town square, which has earned it a place in America's National Register of Historic Places.

The nearby Inner Space Cavern contains remains of prehistoric ice age creatures. Travelling west on Route 29 to Burnet, you can take the Vanishing Texas River Cruise, a two and a half hour narrated journey across lake Buchanan, passing through huge limestone cliffs.

Turning south at Llano for Route 16 and Fredericksburg, you can encounter the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, a massive pink granite dome revered by the Comanche Indians.

Heading south-west,the area around Bandera, "The Cowboy Capital of the World", is full of welcoming guest ranches; Kerrville is home to the Cowboy Artists of America Museum and New Braunfels, one of several area towns retaining a strong German tradition, is home to Gruene Hall, the oldest continuously operating dance hall in Texas.
