Question Road tripping from DALLAS to AUSTIN...

What courses would you suggest I play on my way? I've planned a whole day for driving down and playing 3-4 courses on the way.

Thanks for any help.

Is the really good one in Waco open again?

Also, as you're coming into town I would suggest hitting Rivery and Old Settlers (both right off of I35). If you're willing to go a little out of your way, Wilco (Williamson County) is a great course that is Northwest of town.

Cool....thanks. I'll check those out.

A few of us are leaving a day early to get a bunch of rounds in, and over the weekend a big group of us will most likely play Pease Park (since it's relocating).

Obviously Waco makes the most sense - but I don't know the current status on Cameron East. Lion's Park in Temple is a fantastic course, and everyone loves Wilco in north Austin. However, I love playing Rivery Park in Georgetown - some people diss the layout, but it's one of my favorites played.

Cool...thanks for the input.

I've checked a few of the suggestions out and definitely want to play Brazos Park in Waco, Lion's Park in Temple and Old Settler's Park in Round Rock.

I wouldn't guess any of them would be too busy on a Thursday, huh?

Isn't that like only a 2 hour drive?

I will check that out.

Actually I've been checking out most of the courses along the way and see you've played most of them.

Let me just say, thanks for the great reviews. Love reading about the courses...shade, elevation, teepad/basket conditions, etc. I've made some notes and can't wait to hit a few of them.

Does that course go by another name? Can't seem to find it here on the site.
