The Brackenridge Golf Course, the oldest 18-hole public course in the state, was designed in 1915 by renowned golf course architect A.W. Tillinghast (who also designed Winged Foot, Baltusrol and Inverness), "Old Brack" was recently honored as the first golf facility listed in the Texas Registry of Historic Sites. It has also been inducted into the Texas Golf Hall of Fame and the Texas Open Hall of Honor, having hosted the first Texas Open in 1922. Today, the course is still a true test of shot-making. The front nine is lined by ancient oak and pecan trees, requiring accurate tee shots to score well. The back nine is more open, bringing the wind into play. Give it a rip on the 17th, a par 4 that can be reached off the tee by strong players.
