Willie Nelson’s Cut-N-Putt Golf Course


This is a beautiful nine-hole course spanning the hill-tops near the Pedernales River in western Travis County, Texas. It’s just 8 songs away from Austin. Owned by Willie Nelson and operated by PGA Professional, Chris Woolery, 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 Willie’s very extended “Family” members. Our Pro Shop features all kinds of Willie Nelson golf paraphernalia, and 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.

Course Rules

We don’t need no stinkin’ rules. Wait, yes we do have a few unusual ones.

Reserving a Tee Time is easy. Call the Pro Shop at 512-264-1489.

We’ve got your sports drinks and sodas at the Pro Shop. You are on your own for food, but the best burgers in Central Texas are at Poodies Hilltop on Hwy 71 nearby. They taste even better after a round of golf. Poodie, Willie’s Stage Manger, literally “lives” on the course, just play through.

A brief history:

The Cut-N-Putt and associated buildings were formerly The Briarcliff Yacht and Golf Club, a full-fledged country club.The course was designed and built by Frank Howard in 1968. Purchased by Willie in 1979, the Club House became Willie’s operating recording studio that attracts recording artists from all around. The adjacent condos and houses around the course are home for a lot of Willie’s family, friends, staff, and roadies, and a few regular folks too. None of the neighbors get too mad when you slice over into their yard, but just forget the ball, it’s off limits.

The Pedernales Golf Club is supported by the Pro Shop and the fleet of powerful golf carts (gasoline powered ClubCars), which is your entry point into the course, and a place to pick up a new logo ball or cap.
