Even though its just two miles west of I-35, Plum Creek is sort of an off-the-beaten path place to play. Located in the wildflower pastures just south of Austin, Roy Bechtol designed this links-style track for Glenn and Mary Evans, who were developing their vision of the Plum Creek residential community.

Bechtol’s layout is especially pleasing because of its natural appearance– the track rolls through the flowers that blanket the ranchland, with aesthetic water features and grass mounds. The course has an open feel to it, and you’ll never see an adjoining fairway. And while sand isn’t a concern, the lack of trees and the course’s hilltop location make it susceptible to the winds.

The most difficult hole at Plum Creek is the 659-yard No. 2, which should probably play like a par 7 when the wind is blowing. Natural brush lines this somewhat narrow fairway, and a creek cuts across the lane on your second shot. Later on the front comes the uphill 605-yard No. 9, where you won’t be able to afford any duffs to make par.

Water comes in play more on the back side, including the pesky 382-yard No. 14. The hole doglegs right around a small lake and requires a solid drive to turn that corner. If it’s too long, you’re through the bend and will be forced to chip out before the approach over the creek fronting the green.

All told, there’s a good mixture of holes at Plum Creek, and the outstanding service provided by the staff makes for a great day of golfin’ Kyle.

Getting there : Head south from Austin on I-35 and take Exit 217. Turn right at the stop sign onto County Road 210. Follow the Plum Creek signs, turning right onto Kohler's Crossing.

    Really enjoyed the toughness of this course, very appealing to the eyes. With the rains this summer, the wild prarie areas were perfect, and course condition excellent. This is a tough but fair course, but no room for errors especially from the tips which required some big carries to reach the fairways. Highly recommend this course and a great value as well
