Recognised as one of the best golf resorts in the Southwest by GOLF Magazine and featuring top-ranked courses by Golf Digest, Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is one of the most sought-after golf destinations in Texas. Just 10 miles northwest of downtown Austin, the Resort blends the best of the capital city with the beauty of Texas Hill Country.

The Fazio Canyons features large sloping greens, elevation changes from tee to green and a variety of fairway and greenside bunkers. Streams and creeks meander throughout the entire course, past limestone-bedded canyons and beautiful Austin, Texas vistas. With five sets of tees, this course poses a challenge for golfers of all abilities.
Natural limestone caves, waterfalls and fairways lined with dramatic cliffs and native trees all contribute to the visual impact of the Fazio Foothills, while the rolling terrain with frequent changes in elevation add to its many challenges for golfers. Creeks, streams and ponds figure into play on as many as seven holes. With five different sets of tees, the Foothills course caters to golfers at every level.
