One of four 18-hole courses at the Barton Creek Resort, the Fazio Canyons layout is the second Tom Fazio design on the property. It opened for play in 1999, thirteen years after Fazio Foothills first made its mark here.
The two Fazio tracks are the longest and toughest of the four layouts at the resort so if you’re looking for a more relaxing round of golf then it’s recommended that you tee it up at either the Palmer Lakeside course (unveiled in 1986) or the Coore-Crenshaw course which debuted in 1991.
If you decide instead to take on the 7,153-yard Fazio Canyons course then you’ll enjoy the scenic holes that are framed with stately Red Oaks and Sycamore trees, with fabulous Hill Country views of Short Springs Branch, a lovely limestone bed creek that wanders throughout the course.
Feature holes include the potentially driveable short par four 4th; the 449-yard uphill 6th; the 457-yard 9th, where a creek runs along the right side of the fairway; and the 561-yard downhill finishing hole, played to a home green that’s tucked into the left, behind a creek and a big live oak tree.
