Unlike the flashier Fazio Course, Crenshaw’s work at Barton Creek typifies his traditionalist style, a tribute to his dedication as one of the game’s great historians. There’s more of a natural feel to playing on of his courses, and more pure golf enjoyment for the layman because they actually have a chance to hit the wide fairways and monstrous greens.
In fact, the highlight of the Crenshaw course is the massive greens, which make it easier to reach in regulation, but often leave you with putts of a 100-feet or more.
The Hill Country views, while not as dramatic as Fazio, are still prevalent on this track. The most scenic is the 125-yard No. 17, which plays over a huge valley into a green that slopes towards the drop off.
