Headed for Austin, TX

    I am on my way to the Texas Hill Country for a week of visits to local golfing communities.  Austin, which is home to the University of Texas, has been a favorite destination for retirees over the last two decades.  Housing there is reasonably priced, relatively speaking, golf is playable virtually year round, and the music and barbecue are first rate.  I am coordinating my trip through a local real estate agent who specializes in golf course communities, and I will be happy to provide him as a contact point for anyone interested in the area.

    My plan is to visit the communities of Falconhead at Spellman Ranch, River Place, Lakeway and the University of Texas Golf Club at Steiner Ranch.  That leaves one day open, at the moment, so if anyone out there has a particular community in the Austin area that they want me to check out, either send me a note (via the "Contact" button at right) or leave a comment below (you will need to be registered at the site).

    The December issue of HomeOnTheCourse will feature the Austin area.  An annual subscription for six information-packed issues costs just $39.  Sign up now to ensure you receive the upcoming October issue, which will focus on the area of Mt. Pleasant, SC., just a few miles northeast of Charleston.
