Travelogue

Recently reopened after a nearly year-long, $150-million renovation, the original golf resort in the scenic Hill Country has been reborn as one of the area’s grandest and most luxurious. New owner Omni added a third lodging tower and a huge new spa along with four pools, including one indoor. Thankfully there is no change to the scenic rolling scenery or to the great golf offerings. Both Tom Fazio courses — the original design next to the resort and the Canyons a mile away — have been ranked the Nos. 1 and 2 public courses in the state. The Ben Crenshaw course across the street from the resort, designed by the native son and longtime Barton Creek visitor, has Texas-sized greens and dramatic views. The fourth course, Barton Creek Lakeside, is 30 minutes from the resort, near Willie Nelson’s private layout.
There are plenty of ways to relax at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Tex.
