The current course at Austin Country Club was built on new property in 1984 and designed by Pete Dye. As configured for the tournament, a stretch of holes on the back nine is in the “lowlands” close to Lake Austin, while the rest of the course sits on higher ground.
Notable Course Features
The signature hole is the par-5 12th, which plays downhill to a green that sits hard by Lake Austin. It’s reachable in two shots, but the green is double-tiered and water on the left awaits an errant shot, making it an excellent risk/reward hole for match play.
The World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play has generated more than $5 million for Austin-based charitable organizations since moving to Austin in 2016. The primary benefiting charities are The First Tee of Greater Austin and Dell Children’s Hospital.
