Not really.  It is an 18-hole private course in the southeast part of the state, but the client prefers not to try to describe it, and wait until we have some holes shaped before we start showing it to people.  There's been some discussion of it locally if you are around golf down there, but not too much - we prefer to be mysterious.  I'm guessing that will flip by the end of this year.

What we really need is a Tom Doak designed golf course in the Austin, TX area! 


There are good courses in the Austin area:

Austin CC - Pete Dye
Austin Golf Club - Crenshaw
Barton Creek - Crenshaw/Coore, Fazio, Fazio, Palmer
Spanish Oaks - Bobby Weed
Austin CC - Pete Dye
The Hills - Jack Nicklaus
Cimarron Hills - Nicklaus
Driftwood - Tom Fazio

And there are plans for two more: Loraloma by David McLay Kidd and Travis Club by Beau Welling.

Probably the most exciting one underway is about 45 minutes from Austin airport called Luling being designed by Kyle Franz.


Tom - If you get the chance, we'd love to see you do something here in the heart of Texas!

Well, that's not going to happen anytime soon.  To sign up for this job I had to agree not to do another new course near Dallas or Austin for a few years, as the client expects to recruit members from those cities.  Normally, I don't sign things like that, but I'm 62 and I'm not going to do a lot more courses, and I've got two to build in Texas as it is.

As someone who grew up in Austin, I will point out that you've left an important architect off the list:

Riverside GC - Perry Maxwell

The first and second holes have been altered significantly, but most of the scrappy muni still holds quite a pedigree.
