At Omni Barton Creek Resort, they know the secret to an amazing event is masterful service. And few have more firsthand experience in delivering than Phillip Marburger, director of golf at for more than two decades.
With four championship courses, Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is an obvious choice for groups with an interest in golf. The newly-renovated Fazio Foothills course, surrounded by beautiful landscaping and a waterfall, epitomizes Tom Fazio's risk vs. reward style of play for which his designs are best known.
“The reason I came to Barton Creek is because this place is so special. People ooh and aah over the course. To work day in and day out where you can see how impressed people are by your “office” is a very special thing,” said Phillip.
Whether your group’s priority is a relationship-building experience or a world-class challenge on the course, Phillip and his team know how to pull it off without a hitch. While some groups have a clear vision and low handicap, when there’s a group with a wide spectrum of player skill levels it creates great opportunities for creativity.
Meeting planners know that one of the most challenging components of any event is to make each one feel fresh and unlike any other. That’s why Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa specializes in creating custom, breathtaking events that combine elevated service with themes, spectacles and food and beverage options that are anything but expected.
One such event showed attendees firsthand the inspiration of the song, “The stars at night are big and bright / deep in the heart of Texas,” with a stargazing experience. At a tour of the stars guided by a professor of astronomy, guests learned about constellations while sipping on cocktails and enjoying light bites. The new event lawn will provide a secluded, comfortable space to take in the majesty of unobstructed starlight.
