Lions aka “Old Muni” Located in West Austin, it’s a short but very nice course. Green Fees are reasonable. The course gets crowded on the weekends.
Roy Kizer and Jimmy Clay Located in SE Austin, Two courses, large practice facility, one course is a links course. Muni Pricing and I really like this place.
Butlers Pitch and Put – Par 3 Course just minuets from downtown. Right next to Zilker Park. No need for more than a wedge and a putter. Pretty fun for $7. I hit my first hole in one here in 2013. If you do you get your name on the wall.
Hancock Small 9 hole course right next to UT. It’s not that nice, but cheap and you can slum it if that’s your thing
Morris Williams Located on the east side of town, this course is a decent round of golf, and frequently less crowded that the other courses in town.
Lago Vista This is one of my favorite courses to play in the Austin\Hill Country area. It’s located about 30 miles from downtown Austin on the North side of lake Travis. The course has great terrain and views and the course is normally in decent shape. It’s also typically not very crowded compared to the courses in the city, and there are deer everywhere.

Willy Nelson’s Course Located about 30 miles from downtown Austin in the hill country, I have only played this once and the fairways were in very rough shape. 9 holes with decent length and decent greens and layout. We have had a historic drought the past few years, so maybe this is just a 2013 thing. Cutnputt.com
