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!
