ShadowGlen Golf Club

Now open just east of Austin on Highway 290, ShadowGlen Golf Club is setting the standard for championship golf in the area. Bechtol/Russell Golf and Golf Works, Inc. have collaborated on this exceptional traditional course measuring nearly 7,200 yar s from the championship tees. Long tee shots, accurate iron approaches, and deft short-game shots are needed to score well from the back tees. Adds Tyson Roth, general manager of ShadowGlen, “A scratch golfer better bring the ‘A game’ to compete from back there.” And, as evidence of this fact, course rules prohibit playing the championship tees without a verifiable five handicap or better.

The championship tees are not your only option. There are three other tees from which to choose, providing the level of difficulty you are comfortable with based on ability. The bronze tees, perfect for the better-than-average golfer and for the tournament scrambles, measure 6,629 yards. The white tees, measuring just over 6,000 yards, are great for the senior golfer and any tournament for beginning golfers. The green tees, designated for ladies and juniors, provide a fair test even at 4,898 yards in distance.

Choose the correct tees from the start, for 15 of the 18 holes have water hazards in play. Also, over 50 white sand bunkers are lurking to catch those wayward shots.

But, have comfort in knowing that if you successfully avoid the hazards, you will be playing off the finest manicured turf in Central Texas. The TifSport Bermuda fairways afford the opportunity to control your shots into the speedy TifEagle Bermuda greens. Extensive mounding around the greens provides tricky but manageable short shots to the pin if your approach shots are a bit wayward. Once on the green, you will enjoy the truest putting surfaces around.

The quality at ShadowGlen extends not only to the course but its surrounding amenities as well. Yamaha golf carts equipped with the ProLink GPS system provide a most luxurious ride around the course. Other fine amenities include restrooms on the course, a 25-station driving range, fully stocked pro shop, grill, and 19th Hole overlooking the 18th green. And, for any tournament or event, an air-conditioned event pavilion is available for those pre- and post-event festivities.

The service at ShadowGlen complements what some are calling “the premier golf experience at any price, public or private.” A guest service staff member attends to the bag drop to take your clubs from your car to the cart and back again after your round.

The starter is at the first tee to get your round started. The beverage cart is cruising the course to satisfy all of your thirst needs. As long as everyone plays in less than four and a half hours, you are left alone to enjoy your round. Everything a golfer dreams of is at ShadowGlen – a club that is designed, built, and managed by golfers with the golfer’s needs in mind.
