Rick spent last weekend in Austin, TX, at the Grand  Re-opening of the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, TX. This picturesque resort in the Texas Hill Country.

Omni Barton Creek underwent an extensive $150 million renovation and expansion that began in November 2017. From its opening 30 years ago to becoming the premier Texas Hill Country destination, this marks a major milestone in the property's history. The resort attracts local and out-of-town visitors to a refined, but relaxed retreat, embodying the spirit of the region.


Have a listen:

1. About the resort

One of the most sought after resort destinations in Texas, Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa stands tall among picturesque hill country views matched in vastness only by its storied history.

Opening as a country club in the mid-1980s, the vision of the future development in the rolling hill country came together with the aid of former Texas Gov. John Connolly and former Lieutenant Governor Ben Barnes. The resort’s doors officially opened September 5, 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 one of the best golf resorts in the state.  

Along the way, the resort has hosted a variety of notable events and tournaments, including the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf  (Champions Tour) Tournament, and many influential guests ranging from former U.S Presidents (#41 President Bush and #43 President Bush) to musical great Willie Nelson to Heisman winner Earl Campbell.   

Former University of Texas legendary football coach Darrel Royal was a founding member of Barton Creek Country Club and frequently golfed Barton Creek’s courses; the resort’s only ballroom is named in his honor.
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.

Today is an exciting new chapter for Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa with our $150 million renovation in conjunction with the resort’s 30th anniversary.
