Located on the Southeastern edge of Austin along the winding Onion Creek flowing eastward towards the Colorado River, the Onion Creek Community is a park-like neighborhood surrounding one of the area’s finest and most notable golf course. With its inception in 1973, Jimmy Demaret’s Onion Creek golf course became home to the Legends of Golf tournament in the 1970’s through the 1980’s and gave birth to the Senior PGA Tour in 1978. In 1996, Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore added nine new holes to the original eighteen, creating a masterful 27-hole golf course. More recently, the Onion Creek Club hosted the Harvey Pennick Invitational LPGA Tour. The championship course is still a favorite for local tournaments and the Onion Creek Men’s and Women’s Golf Associations events.
In addition to the marvelous golf course, the Onion Creek Club offers other recreational, fitness and social opportunities. Members can enjoy tennis on one of 6 courts (hard & clay), swimming in the Jr. Olympic pool or wading in the baby pool, or a good workout in the Club’s Fitness Center. Members and their guests can enjoy dining in the exquisite main dining room overlooking the golf course or a more casual setting in the Demaret Grille. There is also the 19th Hole Bar for chatting about the days events on the course or just catching up with friends and neighbors. The Onion Creek Clubhouse also offers many social events including dances, card clubs, arts & craft fairs, fashion shows, weddings and other special occasion events.
Homes in the Onion Creek Community range from condos & town homes to garden homes & single family homes. Development of the community began in 1973 and has resulted in approximately 1,200 homes built with some completed as recently as the late 2000’s. Even after annexation by the City of Austin in 2004, Onion Creek has maintained a private security force to police the neighborhood which adds to the comfort of the area residents. Austin Independent School District provides educational opportunities for the children of Onion Creek.
Development of South Park Meadows offers valuable shopping, dining, entertainment, banking and other service oriented options close by and conveniently located. Easy access to IH-35 offers convenience to downtown, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, St. Edward’s University and other places of employment or higher education.
