As the official hotel of the PGA TOUR®, it’s natural that Omni Hotels & Resorts boasts some of the most impressive golf vacation destinations in the country. But there’s no need to take their word for it — with five mentions in the April 2019 Golf Digest “Best Golf Resorts in the Americas” and seven mentions in Golfweeks’ “Best of 2019: Best Courses You Can Play,” Omni’s reputation for golf is no secret.
Located in some of the country’s most beautiful locations, these destinations provide challenges for players of all levels, offering championship golf with awe-inspiring backdrops.
1: Barton Creek | Austin
Located in the heart of Hill Country — yet a mere 20-minute drive from Downtown Austin — Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is Texas’ go-to destination for a golf getaway. The resort is home to four championship courses, all recently revitalized as part of a $150 million renovation and expansion over the past year, and makes frequent appearances on “Best of” lists by Golfweek, Golf Digest, Conde Nast Traveler and Golf.com.
Dappled with creeks and waterfalls throughout the course, Fazio Foothills offers a challenging but fair layout that places a premium on shot-making. This 7,125-yard, par 72 course places emphasis on risk versus reward, a hallmark of architect Tom Fazio’s style, and has been named No. 3 in Texas by Golf Magazine in its “Top 100 Courses You Can Play.”
Fazio Canyons is the first resort course in Texas to be certified as an Audubon International Signature Sanctuary and was designated as a Certified Signature Sanctuary, offering players a true connection with their natural surroundings. The course was also recently ranked “#1 Top Texas Tour Venues That You Can Play” by Golf.com.
The Coore Crenshaw Cliffside course challenges golfers with its approach to large, well-contoured greens and lush, wide-sweeping fairways lined by densely packed trees. Whereas Palmer Lakeside, designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer, features dramatic elevation changes, rewarding those long off the tee.
In addition to the courses, the expanded resort now includes a new guest room tower, seven restaurants, poolscape featuring three pools and two hot tubs, and a world-class spa with private rooftop garden and pool.
