The new Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is now open!

After being closed for approximately a year to complete a $150+ million renovation, Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa relaunched in May 2019. It is believed that oil billionaire and Omni Hotels owner Robert Rowling purchased six resorts back in 2012 so he could get his hands on Barton Creek, envisioning it as Omni’s flagship property. The resort sits on arguably the most beautiful spot in the Texas hill country, and the renovation was completed in order for the Barton Creek to compete with other iconic leisure resorts like The Broadmoor and Georgia’s Sea Island.

Any consideration of a Texas golf vacation needs to start with the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa. Easily one of the best golf resorts in Texas, if not the country, Barton Creek features four luxury golf courses designed by Tom Fazio, the team of Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, and Arnold Palmer. All four courses were included in the resort’s renovation, and the two Fazio courses, Foothills and Canyons, are ranked nationally among some of the best courses open to the public. The resort will serve as home to the 2020 PGA Professional National Championship which will be nationally televised.

There’s always more to a golf vacation than just outstanding courses, and Barton Creek ensures you’re delighted by seven new dining options offering a wide range of cuisines and atmospheres. The focus is on farm-to-table offerings through partnerships with farmers within 100 miles. The all new Mokara Spa has 17 treatment rooms and an adult only rooftop pool. The rest of the brand new, expansive pool complex is multi-tiered to ensure every guest has an amazing view of the surrounding Texas Hill Country while cooling off and relaxing. The resort also has a redesigned 10 court tennis complex with LED lighting for evening play.

Just as Austin is a one-of-a-kind city in Texas, the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is like no other. To experience the ultimate Texas golf vacation deal, be sure to ask about Barton Creek Resort when booking with Texas Golf Trails!

Something For Everyone

If you’re interested in a golf getaway package, Texas has something for everyone. Just let us know what you prefer, and we can put together a custom golf vacation package at a TX golf resort, put you in the middle of all that Austin or San Antonio has to offer, or just make sure you’re playing the best golf courses in Austin or San Antonio.

When the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa re-opens after a multi-million dollar renovation, Austin will once again be the premier destination for a TX golf vacation. Barton Creek is home to four championship golf courses, designed by Tom Fazio, Ben Crenshaw & Bill Coore, and Arnold Palmer. In fact, the Fazio Canyons and Fazio Foothills courses are ranked #1 and #3 respectively on Golf Digest’s best golf courses in Texas list. Plus the resort’s renovation promises to deliver not just one of the best experiences in Texas, but in the country.

Located about 45 minutes west of Austin is Horseshoe Bay Resort, another fantastic TX golf resort that features three Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed courses, Slick Rock, Ram Rock, and Apple Rock. Horseshoe Bay is the perfect place to unwind and really unplug. On the banks of Lake LBJ, you can also enjoy water activities at Texas’ premier golf and lake resort. The Hill Country town of Marble Falls is also fun to visit, and make sure you get a slice of pie at the Bluebonnet Café.

If you’re interested in a TX golf resort experience, San Antonio is a great destination. The JW Marriott is home to TPC San Antonio, which includes two of the best golf courses in Texas. The AT&T Oaks Course was designed by Greg Norman and is home of the PGA Tour Valero Texas Open. The AT&T Canyons Course is a spectacular Pete Dye designed course. The JW also has several pools, a lazy river, and water slides.

La Cantera Resort & Spa is another great choice for your TX golf vacation in San Antonio. The resort offers the Tom Weiskopf designed Resort Course, former home of the Texas Open, as well as the Palmer Course, considered to be one of Arnold Palmer’s best designs. La Cantera is a little less geared towards kids in our opinion, and you can also catch a free shuttle ride to The Shops at La Cantera, which features upscale shopping and numerous restaurants.

The Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio is home to Hill Country Golf Club, a 27-hole championship facility designed by Arthur Hills & Associates. Spread over 200 acres, San Antonio Magazine named the club “Best Golf Course in San Antonio.” Set on historic ranch land, the resort has a way to make you feel like you’re in the countryside of the Texas Hill Country, but is only 20 minutes from the airport and San Antonio’s word-famous River Walk.

Not interested in stay and play golf packages at a resort? Do you want world-class dining and entertainment choices footsteps away? We can also create a custom golf getaway package with accommodations in downtown Austin and San Antonio.

In San Antonio, experience the River Walk just outside your hotel while still getting to play the best San Antonio golf courses.

Lastly, if your TX golf vacation is about golf, camaraderie, and little else, that’s another benefit of booking with Texas Golf Trails. We’ll still get you on at the best Austin golf courses or the best golf courses in San Antonio, but we’ll also set you up with clean, comfortable accommodations centrally located to the courses we book in your custom TX golf package, ensuring minimal driving distance between your hotel and the courses.
