Here are directions to places where Barbara gives lessons, teaches classes, and takes her classes for rounds of golf. Note that some GPS units do not give the correct locations of Barton Creek Golf Academy and Oak Hill Driving Range.
Barton Creek Golf Academy
Don’t get lost! Barton Creek Golf Academy is NOT located at the Barton Creek Resort & Spa (where the hotel and pro shop are located). The golf academy is a couple of miles down Southwest Parkway from the hotel.
From Loop 1 (MoPac), exit onto Southwest Parkway and head west for about 5 miles. Turn right onto Barton Creek Blvd heading north. In about one mile, turn right at the sign for Fazio Canyons Golf Course. (Do not turn onto Henry Marx Lane – keep going.) The road ends in the parking lot and cart pickup area, where the staff will show you the way to the Academy.
Oak Hill Driving Range
Located on the south side of Highway 290/71, on the eastbound access road, between the Heart of Texas Motel and Garden Ridge Pottery. [web site]
If you are heading south on Loop 1 (MoPac), take the exit for Johnson City and Llano (highways 290 and 71 west). Stay in the right lane as you exit, and immediately take the exit for Industrial Oaks Blvd & Monterey Oaks Blvd. This exit will put you on the access road for highway 290 heading west. Keep to the left, and at the first traffic light (which is Monterey Oaks Blvd), make a U-turn under the bridge, so you are heading east on the access road. Move into the far right lane. Immediately after you pass the Heart of Texas motel, you will see the driving range on the right. Don’t miss the small driveway into their gravel parking lot.
Butler Pitch and Putt
Located near downtown Austin, just south of Ladybird Lake. From either West Riverside Drive or Barton Springs Road (depending on where you’re coming from), turn onto Lee Barton Drive, a small street just east of South Lamar. Parking is located on Lee Barton Drive. [web site]
Roy Kizer / Jimmy Clay Golf Courses
Located southeast of downtown Austin, these two courses share the same parking lot and clubhouse. From Interstate 35, exit onto Stassney Lane, heading east. After about 2 miles, turn right onto Jimmy Clay Drive. (This turn is easily missed. The signs are small and you cannot see the course from the street.) Jimmy Clay Drive ends in the parking lot for the courses. [web site]
From Ben White Blvd (Highway 71), exit Montopolis Drive and proceed south. Montopolis Drive becomes Stassney Lane. Turn left onto Jimmy Clay Drive. (This turn is easily missed. The signs are small and you cannot see the course from the street.) Jimmy Clay Drive ends in the parking lot for the courses.
