Local Area Attractions
Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge
This rugged terrain has spared old Ashe juniper and oak woodlands from logging and shelters some of the best golden-cheeked warbler habitat. The Brazos tributaries to the north cut only shallow canyons. Here, the refuge foothills ease into savannahs where the open country supports oak shinneries (head-high thickets) vital to the black-capped vireo. These songbirds and their rapidly diminishing habitats are why Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1992.

Point Venture Golf Course
Enjoy quiet Hill Country golf in the middle of Lake Travis and away from the crowds and confines of Austin. The Point Venture Golf Club was designed in 1972 by the 3-time Masters Champion – Jimmy Demaret. The Dallas Morning News has named Point Venture Golf Club “one of the best 9-hole courses in Texas” and the Austin Business Journal named Point Venture in their “Best of Golf Courses in Austin”.
The course is carved out of the rocks and cedar trees that define the Hill Country of central Texas. Since the course was laid out on a peninsula on the north shore of the world-famous Lake Travis, beautiful views of the lake can be seen from four of the 9 holes. Tight fairways and small undulated greens make it a challenge for the best players; however, with no water hazards or bunkers even a beginner golfer can enjoy their round at Point Venture Golf Club!
