Wolfdancer in Bastrop Tx. 25 min drive from downtown Austin. Also Falconhead in west Austin/Lakeway area, or Avery Ranch in North Austin. All very good, long, challenging layouts.

Prob $100ish rack rate, but I used to get great deals on tee times at GOLF512.com. It's been a few years though.

I'm in town for a few days and was wondering what I should play in either Austin or San Antonio? Looking for a really good track!

In San Antonio, both courses at La Cantera are very nice.  If you were planning to play 36, I recommend playing 18 at Cedar Creek early in the morning, have lunch at the retail area of La Cantera and then play either the Palmer or Resort Courses at La Cantera in the afternoon.  On Golfnow you can get on La Cantera around 2pm for $80.  Cedar Creek, while a muni with some rough edges, has an outstanding layout for a very good price (around $45-55 for 18 w/cart).  It would serve as a good warmup for La Cantera.  Both layouts are very hilly with lots of elevation changes.  Plus they are virtually right next to each other.

The Resort Course at La Cantera was the former home of the PGA's Texas Open and the Palmer Course is a typical Arnold Palmer design with lots of fun and interesting holes.

    • I have been doing a drill where I swing with my right arm only (right-handed golfer). In taking the club back slowly with my right arm only to the top and pausing there, I have found that the only real efficient way to initiate the downswing is for the lower body/hips to rotate towards the target. The lower body is needed to tug/pull the upper body/right arm. The momentum created on the downswing of the right arm does not have the left arm to get in the way and stall the swing. I find that the body opens up fully to the target without thought or concentrated effort involved. So practice a full, slow backswing with a pause at the top with the right arm only. Then do a good downswing and the body will be facing the target and there is also some good lag and forward shaft lean.  
    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
    • Day 64, July 28, 2021: Three quarter swing feels today, same stuff I’ve been working on for the last month. 
    • It's finally arrived! Will dig in, hope it helps my game as it has for so many here!
    • What do you guys think about limit hip turn on back swing for greater hip turn down swing? I believe my swing is full hip and shoulder turn on back swing but only get a little bit open hip at impact. any drill to help me achieve this and get more hip turn on down swing? the best I can do at impact.
