The No. 1 Golf Resort in Texas Hosts Easter Golf Ball Hunt to Win Free Stays, Specials and More

AUSTIN, TEXAS (March 9, 2015) – In the famous words of David Feherty, CBS and Golf Channel personality: “The ball is so far left, Lassie couldn’t find it if it was wrapped in bacon.” Hunting for golf balls typically frustrates even the best of golfers, but that will all change this Easter weekend at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa.

To give back to all those golfers who claim one of the four championship golf courses at Omni Barton Creek “ate their golf balls” over the years, the luxury Hill Country Resort is introducing its first-ever Easter Golf Ball Hunt.

Keeping in the popular holiday tradition of hunting Easter eggs, the resort will hide different color golf balls along the fairways, in the rough, bunkers and around the greens of the Fazio Foothills course on Saturday, April 4, and on the Fazio Canyons course Easter Sunday, April 5.

Golfers who discover these specially painted golf balls may redeem them for special prizes -- ranging from discounted spa treatments in Three Springs Spa and meals at the resort’s award-winning restaurants to complimentary golf rounds and overnight stays at the resort. One lucky golfer will find the “golden golf ball,” which represents the golden key to the resort for an entire weekend. This guest will win a two-night stay, a round of golf for two, a complimentary spa treatment, and all meals included.

“We believe this is a fun way to show our golfers that for one day a year, it’s well worth their time to hunt for golf balls,” said Carissa Smith, director of sales and marketing for Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa. “Our ‘Easter EGG-Stravaganza’ has been a longstanding tradition for kids at our resort for many years, and now parents can also get in on the fun.”

Whether looking for a golf adventure or exciting holiday activities for the family, Omni Barton Creek’s Easter weekend also features its annual Easter EGG-Stravaganza and Easter Brunch. Children of guests staying at Omni Barton Creek over the weekend will enjoy a bounce house, crafts, face painting and a traditional Easter egg hunt with more than 2,000 eggs on Saturday, April 4. On Easter Sunday, April 5, guests and locals alike are invited to Easter Brunch to enjoy a special menu filled with a flavorful assortment of traditional Easter dishes along with a few culinary surprises. Space is limited. Patrons may reserve their spot by calling 512-329-7906. The price is $65.95 for adults, $23.99for children ages 6-12, and children under 5-years-old eat free.
