Lakeside’s award-winning championship golf course, designed by King of Golf Arnold Palmer, opened for play in 1986. Palmer’s course is fun for proficient players who are members and quite manageable for novices-offering exceptional enjoyment for every class of golfer.
Prowess with the driver is a plus for a good round of golf, as Palmer’s course is a big-hitter’s delight. Professional golfers rate Palmer’s design among the “Top Ten Texas Courses” and consider Lakeside to have the best Champions Bermuda greens in the State. A cascading waterfall and native flora highlight Lakeside’s signature 11th hole, a magnificent par-three. Indeed, the Dallas Morning News ranks it among the “18 Most Beautiful in Texas”. The par-five 12th and par-four 13th holes are both doglegs left with sloping fairways that reward any player who can “turn the ball over and take it deep.”
Guests enjoy the quiet refuge of Lakeside’s clubhouse retreat that overlooks the golf course and affords a lake view that is nothing short of spectacular.
Being on Lake Travis is perfect for ultimate relaxation and water recreation. It is truly a gem among Texas Lakes with its crystal clear aquamarine water. There is an amazing variety of boats on Lake Travis; from sailboats to windsurfing regattas to competition ski boats, jet skis and cigarette boats to huge luxury houseboats. There are public as well as private marinas and boat ramps readily available. Recreation extends beyond water sports to horseback riding and hiking. There's even a zip line facility within 5 miles of the Cottage called Cypress Valley Canopy Tours.
And if all that wasn't enough, less than a mile away you can enjoy the Stonehouse Vineyard wine tastings or special events.
