Austin's premier municipal course was converted from an abandoned wastewater plant. This 6,749 yard, par 71 course embodies the design philosophy "to give pleasure to the greatest number of players without respect to their capabilities."
A links-style layout, spread over almost 200 acres is bordered by cedars, elms and oaks. 35 acres of lakes and 22 acres of wetlands have been created for resident and migratory waterfowl. Despite the acreage devoted to lakes, Kizer is suitable for players of all levels. Ample fairways and the choice of 5 sets of tees provide each golfer the opportunity to play a course that fits their skill level and a variety of ways to negotiate the challenges.
The course was named for Roy Kizer, golf course superintendent at "old muni" (Lions Municipal Golf Course) from 1937 until his retirement in 1973. Kizer earned the respect of the Austin golf community through his dedication to the course and his support of junior golf in Austin before his death in 1974.
