Nestled on the banks of Austin's scenic Lake Travis, the Point Venture Golf Club is the golf getaway you've been searching for. Golfers at Point Venture enjoy peaceful Hill Country scenery while playing golf in the middle of Lake Travis, away from the crowds and bustle of Austin.
Point Venture Golf Club features a 9-hole course, which at the same time challenges experienced golfers and relaxes novices as they learn this classic game. Point Venture was designed in 1972 by 3-time Masters Champion Jimmy Demaret. The Dallas Morning News has described it as one of the best 9-hole courses in Texas.
Carved out of the Hill Country's defining rocks and cedar trees, the course was laid out on a peninsula on the north shore of the world famous Lake Travis, meaning some of the holes have picturesque views. Our course plays longer than its yardage, due to sharp doglegs that force you to hit some irons and fairway woods off the tees, leaving you some mid irons onto the greens. These doglegs also add a risk/reward element for longer hitters because some of the greens are driveable, if you gamble with cutting the dogleg. The driver can win you an eagle, but if the driver goes crooked you'll end up with a double bogey, real quick. We keep our greens in perfect condition, meaning they always have decent speed.
