In keeping with the long tradition of Austin Golf, Lions Municipal Golf Course has served its citizens since 1934 and has long been the city's most popular course. Constructed originally by the Lions Club in 1928, Lions has hosted notable golfers, including Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson and of course Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw.
While "old muni" has changed over the years it remains a quality test but very playable course. Even though the course would be considered short by today's standards, 6001 yards, it's relatively narrow tree lined fairways and small greens provides a challenge to even the longest hitters.

Notes from the Trail
Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite grew up in the neighborhood playing this course. It's right in the heart of Old Tarry Town Austin. Ben Hogan once played an exhibition at Lions Municipal and thought that hole #16, known as "Hogan's Hole" was one of the best Par 4's he had ever seen. This municipal course is an Austin historic jewel.
