The Pedernales Golf Club (also known as Willie Nelson’s Cut-N-Putt)

The next time you are in Austin, drive out and visit the Pedernales Golf Club, Willie Nelson’s nine-hole course spanning the hill-tops near the Pedernales River in western Travis County, Texas, not far from Austin.  It is operated by PGA Professional, Chris Woolery.  Even if you don’t golf, it’s a beautiful drive, the folks there are very nice, and the gift shop has a lot of cool golf products and souveniers.  It’s worth the drive just to see the pictures on the wall, too.

Their web site ( has lots of information, and has this to say:

“The Pedernales Golf Club is more than just a beautiful course; it’s a relaxing and refreshing divergence from the formal country club scene.  The rules here are a little different.  We play golf here to have fun, and as you would expect, a lot of fun is had by all.

Events and tournaments are welcome.  Please contact the Pro Shop to arrange any size tournament, and let all your friends discover how fun a round of golf can be.

Adjacent to Willie’s recording studio and condos, the Pedernales Golf Club is a place where you might see just about anybody, from the famous recording artists who frequent the place to Wille’s very extended family members.  Our Pro Shop features all kinds of Willie Nelson golf paraphernalia, an most of it is available here online.

The Pedernales Golf Club is a one-of-a-kind treasure of a spot, and we virtually guarantee you’ll enjoy yourself.  Though memberships are available, we are open to the public.  You’re welcome here if you love the game.”

Some friends of mine stopped by this fall, and look who they ran into:
