Golfweek’s Best deals: Barton Creek
Wednesday, December 30, 2009
Austin, Texas, frequently gets mentioned on various lists of America’s most livable cities. No wonder. The state capital, which also claims to be the Live Musical Capital of the World, is known for its ample green space and vibrant college community.
If you can’t live there, Barton Creek Resort & Spa is making it mighty tempting to at least visit. Through Feb. 28, you can book the resort’s Fazio Unlimited Golf Package for $224 per person based on double occupancy. That gets you unlimited golf on its two Tom Fazio designs – the Canyons, which is No. 5 on Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play in Texas, and the Foothills, ranked No. 8. Barton Creek will throw in the room, breakfast and twilight-rate golf on the day of arrival.
Planning a buddy trip instead? Barton Creek, which has four courses, has a Golf Guys Getaway starting at $203 per person based on an eight-person minimum. It includes the same perks as the Fazio package, plus this deal-closer: a bucket of beer, chips and salsa for each guest.
