Yaupon is an 18 hole fun and challenging golf course. The first hole sets the momentum for your experience on Yaupon – it is a dogleg right up a steep hill leading into a blind dogleg left followed by an extremely narrow approach to the green. Now that’s a blast! Each hole offers great challenges with blind shots, several elevation changes and more doglegs! It has fantastic panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country. The course wanders through some gorgeous Lakeway homes. Club selection and course management are a must with all the trees on the sides of the course and some strategically placed in the middle of the course.
Live Oak golf course was Lakeway’s original golf course. It was constructed in 1967 and is a fun and challenging course that requires exceptional course management and club selection.
