Good news for anyone who hopes to golf during their stay in Austin at the Moontower Loft – the Morris Williams Golf Course, a public golf course, is less than a mile away.
You will enjoy views of the Austin skyline as you play the recently renovated course or driving range, and you can also relax in a rocking chair on the porch overlooking the entire course.
The Fairways Cantina offers a variety of tasty eats, including tacos and queso, and a bar with frozen Margaritas and lots of other drink options. The restaurant patio overlooks the course with gorgeous views.
Morris Williams opened in 1964 as Austin’s third public course. Designed by Leon Howard, one of the most prolific course architects of the time, the course features elevated, contoured greens and rolling terrain.
Named after Morris Williams Jr., one of the best golfers ever developed in Austin, Williams Jr. won every trophy in the area; from the Texas Jr. Championship to the National Air Force Trophy, now named in his honor. He lost his life as a young man during the Korean war in a jet plane crash.
The course once served as the home for the University of Texas golf team under legendary coaches Harvey Penick and George Hannon. During this time, UT won 2 NCAA Championships with teams led by Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw.
