New Golf Course Coming Near Rutherford West

July 13, 2019 2:40 pm

A brand new elite golf course is under development near the Rutherford West community of Austin TX homes. When completed in 2020, the course is expected to offer the premier golf experience in Texas.

The Driftwood Golf & Ranch Club will be built near the Salt Lick BBQ in the area of the FM 1826 intersection with RM 967 in Driftwood. The 18-hole championship course will be designed by Tom Fazio, a well-known course architect. It will feature long-range views of the Texas Hill Country and is designed to challenge all levels of golfers.

Development of the course will put an emphasis on sustainability and land stewardship. The property covers 492 acres, of which 228 acres will remain as open space. To help preserve the area’s groundwater supply, the course will be irrigated with treated water from the city of Dripping Springs.

Golf enthusiasts have several other courses to choose from in the region including Quicksand Golf Course in Wimberley, Falconhead Golf Club in Austin and Perdernales Golf Course in Spicewood.

All are within a convenient distance of Rutherford West, a beautiful new home community in Driftwood. Rutherford West features spacious homes on acreage lots in the Texas Hill Country. The community is close to North Austin and is just minutes from the new golf course and the Salt Lick BBQ. Other attractions in the area include vineyards, the Hamilton Pool waterfall and Pedernales Falls State Park.
