If your kids' heroes wear argyles instead of shoulder pads and they'd rather don a green jacket than don a championship ring under the uprights, this family-friendly Escape to Texas Hill Country's premier golf destination is right down your fairway.
This holiday season, two adults and up to four kids ages 17 and under will spend one night in a Resort Guestroom, Sundays through Thursdays ($165) or Fridays and Saturdays ($185), at Barton Creek Resort & Spa—a golf resort with something for every member of the putting party. Each adult receives a $50 golf credit, a $25 club rental credit, and a $50 spa credit.
Tee off on any of four championship courses at Barton. Celebrated designer Tom Fazio's two courses—Fazio Canyons and Fazio Foothills—are ranked the number one and two resort golf courses in Texas by Golf Magazine. To improve your game, the resort offers a top-notch golf academy and Callaway Performance Center. Analyze your shot using Callaway's 3D imaging system, then get fitted for your perfect clubs.
Between games, swing by Three Springs Spa to purchase a massage or facial with your $50 spa credit. Later, you can load your cart with garb for everyone on your list, including Texas gifts, high-end fashions, and more at The Shops at Barton Creek. From November 21, 2012, to January 6, 2013, the resort operates the city's largest outdoor ice rink during its Holiday Lights & Ice event, so you can make winter the most wonderful time of the year.
A long day of festivities can work up an appetite; satisfy your cravings at one of the resort's four restaurants. Fine dining is par for the course at the AAA Four Diamond Hill Country Dining Room, where master chefs whip up dishes like potato sage-crusted black bass and prime bone-in rib-eye.
Have a ball at Barton Creek Resort & Spa. This holiday Escape to Texas Hill Country is so impressive, you'll be tempted to register it with the pros.
