Twin Creeks Country Club celebrates 10th Anniversary
Twin Creeks Country Club is celebrating its 10th Anniversary, an exciting milestone for one of Austinâ€™s Premier Private Clubs.
Twin Creeksâ€™ golf course was one of the first signature courses to be designed by Fred Couples.
In recognition of the milestone, Twin Creeks will be hosting several events for their members, culminating in a Black Tie New Yearâ€™s Eve 10 Year Celebration, to be held on Dec. 31, 2013.
The event will include live music, cocktails, heavy hors dâ€™oeuvres with a balloon drop and champagne toast at midnight.
â€œItâ€™s exciting, at the least, to be a part of Twin Creeks Country Clubâ€™s 10-year anniversary celebration. It is rare to step onto a golf course knowing that you will leave with a positive experience, but that is exactly what you get when you play Twin Creeks,â€ said Kyle Oâ€™Brien, PGA Head Golf Professional at Twin Creeks.
â€œThe Hill Country views and variety of wildlife that reside on our property are breathtaking from the time you set foot on the course. Add that to one of the most well manicured courses in the Austin area and you see what I mean. I canâ€™t wait to see what the next 10-years have in store,â€ Oâ€™Brien added.
Twin Creeks Country Club opened in May 2003, with a Grand Opening Celebration on Nov. 10, 2003. In 2008, the club was purchased by The Dominion Golf Group.
â€œWe look forward to celebrating Twin Creeksâ€™ milestone with the Membership and the community,â€ said Steven Held, President and CEO of The Dominion Golf Group, which currently owns and operates Twin Creeks Country Club. â€œIt is especially great to be an integral part of the Twin Creeks community.â€
A decade of exemplary golf, tennis and fitness facilities are just a few components of Twin Creeksâ€™ history.
An historic landmark, the John M. King log house, is also located on Twin Creeksâ€™ property. The log house is a small one-and-one-half building that is estimated to have been built in the mid-1800s. King, a farmer from Alabama, and his family occupied the home until 1917.
A local politician, Jack Dies, later purchased it in 1937.
Dies was said to have entertained many dignitaries at the log house â€œin lavish styleâ€ throughout the years.
