Palmer Lakeside at Barton Creek is ideally perched on a secluded hilltop overlooking Lake Travis, just 25 miles west of Barton Creek Resort & Spa, Barton Creek’s Palmer Lakeside is a hidden retreat that rewards guests with striking, panoramic lake views and twilight glimpses of white-tail deer.

Lakeside’s extraordinary championship golf course, designed by King of Golf Arnold Palmer, opened for play in 1986.  Palmer’s course is fun for proficient players and quite manageable for novices- offering exceptional enjoyment for every class of golfer.

Prowess with the driver is a plus for a good round of golf, as Palmer’s course is a big-hitter’s delight.  Professional golfers rate Palmer’s design among the “Top Ten Texas Courses” and consider Lakeside to have the best Champions Bermuda greens in the State.  A cascading waterfall and native flora highlight Lakeside’s signature 11th hole, a magnificent par-three.  Indeed, the Dallas Morning News ranks it among the “18 Most Beautiful in Texas”.  The par-five 12th and par-four 13th holes are both doglegs left with sloping fairways that reward any player who can “turn the ball over and take it deep.”

Guests enjoy the quiet refuge of Lakeside’s clubhouse retreat which overlooks the golf course and affords a lake view that is nothing short of spectacular.
