A Birthday Gift for Golfers: The No. 1 Golf Resort in Texas Invites Guests to Celebrate Birthdays with Complimentary Golf

AUSTIN, TEXAS (August 31, 2015) – Starting today, Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa is inviting resort guests to celebrate their birthdays with a complimentary round of golf at the tranquil Texas Hill Country resort, recognized as one of the top golfing destinations in the state. Opened on September 5, 1987, the luxury golf resort is commemorating its own anniversary by giving travelers the gift of golf for their birthday.

Golfers of any skill level can enjoy well-maintained greens, challenging layouts and stunning views on four nationally acclaimed championship golf courses. Golfers interested in the complimentary offer may book their stay and play their round within seven days of their actual birthday.

Golfers may choose a birthday tee-off on any of Omni’s championship golf courses, subject to availability, including:

  • Fazio Foothills – A scenic beauty with dramatic cliff-lined fairways, waterfalls, natural limestone caves and superb TiffEagle Bermuda greens. This signature golf course offers 18 holes that appeal to a wide variety of skill levels.
  • Fazio Canyons – Boasting the signature Fazio Trademark, this nationally recognized course offers numerous scenic holes lined with stately Red Oaks and Sycamore trees and features spectacular Hill Country views. The course was designed and constructed with methods to protect and preserve the environment.
  • Crenshaw Cliffside – Encompassing the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country, this one-of-a-kind course features rolling hills, natural plateaus, widely varied green sizes, soft contours and native vegetation – a fitting tribute to the way the game was traditionally played and the ultimate destination for experienced golfers.
  • Palmer Lakeside – Overlooking Lake Travis, this course is perched on a secluded hilltop offering a hidden retreat that rewards guests with striking, panoramic lake views and twilight glimpses of whitetail deer – a big hitter’s delight. 

What started as a country club in the mid-1980s became a upscale resort in 1987 with former First Lady of the United States Lady Bird Johnson in attendance for the grand opening ceremony. Over the years, four championship golf courses were introduced, one designed by Austin native Ben Crenshaw, another by Arnold Palmer and two by Tom Fazio, earning the property its current reputation as the No. 1 golf resort in Texas. Along the way, the resort has hosted a variety of notable golf tournaments and influential guests ranging from former U.S presidents to musical legends. While the face of the resort has changed over time to meet guest needs, the resort’s central purpose and mission remains steadfast: to provide unrivaled, Texas-sized hospitality to each and every guest that walks its storied hallways.

The complimentary birthday golf promotion is available to resort guests from September 2015 through September 2016. Guests must call in advance to book their stay and a tee time, mention the birthday offer and then present a valid ID on arrival at the golf shop. For additional information or to book a birthday tee time and overnight stay, guests may visit or call 1-800-336-6158. Travelers or media also can follow Omni Barton Creek at and
