Wolfdancer Golf Club Announces U.S. Kids Golf Family Course Designation and Family Wolf Pack

(AUSTIN / BASTROP, TEXAS) – The award-winning Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa is proud to announce that its own Wolfdancer Golf Club has become certified as a U.S. Kids Golf Family Course.

The U.S. Kids Golf Family Course was designed in partnership with the PGA of America. The family course adds two levels of additional tees to each hole, positioned well in front of the existing tees. Teeing grounds are marked by a family course tee plate on level locations in the fairway. In addition, a smaller locator tee is situated near the cart path to make it easy for golfers to find the family course tee marker in the fairway.

“The U.S. Kids program makes Wolfdancer more playable for the entire family, while fostering opportunities for families to bond and make memories on the course,” said Kelly O’Donnell, director of golf operations. “This setup also gives youth and beginners the ability to play from appropriate yardages, which not only makes the game more fun but is especially helpful at Wolfdancer given the course can be challenging for experienced golfers as well.”

To encourage participation in the U.S. Kids Golf Family Course program, the resort is offering a special 2014 Family Wolf Pack Rate every day starting at 4 p.m. For $150, a family of four will enjoy complimentary rental clubs, use of two golf carts with GPS and – if new to the game – a quick lesson from one of Wolfdancer’s PGA pros.

Wolfdancer Golf Club roared onto the Austin golf scene in 2006 and earned GOLF Magazine’s “Top 10 New Courses You Can Play” designation. Designed by Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest and Associates, the 7,205-yard, par-72 layout rambles along a scenic, 150-acre stretch of terrain dotted with oak, cedar elm and pecan trees. The course is cut by the Lower Colorado River, which dramatically frames the right side of layout’s memorable finishing holes. The course was recently named among 2014’s “Best Courses You Can Play” in Texas by Golfweek.

The Wolfdancer golf experience also includes a 13-acre driving range, a full-scale practice facility featuring 10 target greens and eight tee boxes, and a short-game area with two chipping greens and bunkers, and GPS units in each golf cart. Visitors not wishing to travel with their golf clubs to the resort are welcome to take advantage of its golf club rental program.

A beautiful clubhouse features outstanding cuisine and beverage selection at Major Neighbors Grill, one of nine dining options at the resort. Hyatt Lost Pines is also home to a variety of outdoor activities, including: horseback riding, archery, trap shooting and hiking; rafting and kayaking on the Lower Colorado River; the full-service and award-winning Spa Django; live music throughout the week; and a water park featuring the 1,000-foot Crooked River pool with two-story water slide, sandy beach and more.
