This club was the home of Harvey Penick, a gentle, unassuming teaching professional whose relationship with Austin Country Club spanned 81 years. Among his well-known pupils were Betty Jameson, Tom Kite, Betsy Rawls, Ben Crenshaw, Sandra Palmer, and numerous distinguished golfers who never played professionally. New facilities were built in 1984, and Pete Dye was selected as the architect to design the championship course. The design includes canyons and lakes that come into play throughout. The signature hole is #16, a 202-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot over a canyon to the green. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 10th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and the 12th best for 1997-98. This course has hosted the Texas State qualifier and one of the U.S. Open qualifying tournaments. Reciprocal players need to have their head pro set up a tee time with this club's head pro before paying a visit.
