About Barton Creek - Fazio Foothills
Fazio Foothills is one of four courses (Crenshaw Cliffside, Fazio Canyons and Palmer Lakeside) in the beautiful Barton Creek complex.
Opened in 1986, the Fazio Foothills owes its eponymous name to legendary architect Tom Fazio, which is one of his feats.
The course offers spectacular views, beautiful scenery and natural limestone caves as professional golf backgrounds. Some of the holes are very memorable with waterfalls, significant drops, natural obstacles and narrow approaches.
The course was renovated in 2004 to include new fairways and grass tees, increasing the size of 200 yards.
Barton Creek and Fazio Foothills are consistently rated by most golf and resort magazines as the best golf resort in Texas, and Barton Creek is generally ranked among the top 50 establishments in the country. Currently, Fazio Foothills is ranked No. 2 in Texas and its twin-ranked Fazio Canyons is ranked # 1. Golfweek ranked the course as the 4th best 50 golf course in the United States. The Dallas Morning News regularly ranks the course as one of the best in the state. Also, holes # 12, 4, 9, 16, 10, 18 list the most beautiful golf holes in Texas.
Fazio Foothills deserves all the honors - it is in perfect condition, difficult, but fair, of incredible beauty with a panoramic view of the Austin hills and some huge and beautiful houses, and it is very well laid out.
Fazio Foothills has a reputation for being very provocative. The wind can be a huge factor.
However, if you hit the ball straight and low if the wind is blowing, and use good course management, especially on some of the well-calibrated shots, you can score well and have fun.
The greens are medium in size, slightly wavy. The fairways are in excellent condition, the rough well maintained and the course beautifully landscaped.
To play Fazio Foothills, you must be a member, guest member or lodge at Barton Creek Resort.
