become increasingly difficult to find peace and quiet in the booming Greater
Austin area. Those looking for sanctuary amid the seemingly endless
construction and daily traffic jams can find it and more at Cimarron Hills Golf
& Country Club.
beautiful Texas ranch land on the northern edge of Georgetown, Cimarron Hills
opened January 2003. This luxury private gated country club is home to a
spectacular 45,000 square-foot clubhouse, spa, fitness center, tennis
facilities, restaurant and an award-winning 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature
One of golf’s
foremost modern architects, Nicklaus took advantage of the site’s abundant
natural features – towering oak trees, gently rolling terrain and the
meandering San Gabriel River – to create a spectacular course. The par-72 track
presents a memorable challenge and experience for players of all skill levels.
Last year Cimarron
Hills underwent an $800,000 golf course renovation that included a complete redo of all fairway and greenside bunkers, as well as switching
out the grass on the putting surfaces from bentgrass to Champion bermudagrass. The greens conversion provides top-quality
conditions on an everyday basis and allows fine-tuning for elite championship
conditions when needed.
Hills has hosted many high-profile tournaments over the years. The new greens promise
to be firm and fast when the club welcomes this year’s Collegiate Preview, one
of the most competitive events on the Legends Junior Tour annual schedule.
March 12-13, the LJT’s Collegiate Preview is a 54-hole event for boys and girls aged 14-18. It’s ranked nationally by
Junior Golf Scoreboard, Golfweek and
the World Amateur Golf Rankings. The championship format for the elite 78-player
field is intentionally set up like a collegiate tournament. Competitors play 36
holes on the first day and 18 on the second.
