This resort has two regulation eighteen hole courses. The Live Oak Course was built on flat terrain and offers some very scenic views. The fairways are narrow, and the greens are well manicured. The Yaupon Course was built on hilly terrain and requires eight blind approach shots to eight different greens. The greens are undulating, and the fairways are plush. The phone number for the Yaupon Course is (512) 261-7172. There is a Jack Nicklaus designed teaching facility with full length holes, multiple pin placements, uneven lies, fairway bunkers, and varying lengths of rough. This facility also has a 500-yard driving range.

A "Narrow" View of Live Oak, Mar 24, 2004
|reviewer: Mike Williams
from Austin, TX USA
|This was my first experience with golf at Lakeway. The scenery is lovely and the course attendants were friendly and courteous. While waiting for my group in the parking lot, 3 different employees stopped by to see if I needed a cart or anything else. While waiting (still!) in the snack bar, the course marshall stopped by, introduced himself and (again) asked if there was anything I needed. Very impressive customer service. Regarding the course itself: this is one meticulously maintained track. Fairways and grounds bordering the greens are plush and provide great lies. The greens themselves were in very good shape; they were challenging but fair. Take this either positively or negatively, but there are no sand bunkers on the course. Odd, eh? A few holes are "wide open," a la links-style, but most fairways are tight, and bordered by some very unforgiving 200 year old oak trees. A walk in the woods may be a great way to unwind for some, but I can't recommend it on this course. My only gripe is the somewhat claustraphobic feel of the homes bordering a few of the holes. I fully recognize the economics that lead to that kind of course design...it just happens to irritate me a bit. Overall, a tremendously enjoyable experience. Highly recommend Live Oak @ Lakeway.|
