The Harvey Penick Golf Campus opened for play in 2005. The course was designed by PGA Tour Design Service.
Named after the legendary teacher and author, Harvey Penick, former head golf pro at the Austin Country Club, the Harvey Penick Golf Campus is a PGA Tour-designed, 112-acre, 9-hole golf facility designed to challenge new and experience golfers alike. Nestled in the heavily wooded, gentle rolling hills of East Austin, the Harvey Penick Golf Campus is home to The First Tee of Greater Austin, and provides a scenic venue for children to learn the game of golf, and values that last a lifetime.
The Harvey Penick Golf Campus is a par-30, 9-hole course w/ three par fours and six par threes. The course is fun for beginners and challenging for accomplished players. They have four sets of tees to accommodate all players.
The 9-hole course is an easy two-mile walk and is usually played in 1Â½ hours. The fairways and greens are always in great shape and are among the best available on a public course. The course lies in a wooded valley and crosses Walnut Creek three times.
The campus also features a driving range and 3-hole short course, as well as PGA/LPGA instruction for golfers of all ages (adults and children). Look for it just off of highway 183 and 51st Street, next to the YMCA.
Open Monday through Friday 8-dusk, Saturday, Sundays and holidays from 7:00am until dusk
