Roy Kizer Golf Course Grand Reopening


The Austin Parks and Recreation Department's Golf Division, Golf ATX, will host a grand re-opening of the Roy Kizer Golf Course (https://www.austintexas.gov/department/roy-kizer-course) on Thursday, September 29 from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The course, which has been closed since early March 2022, underwent a putting greens resurfacing project and reopened under modified operations on September 8, 2022. The Grand Re-Opening will feature a live onsite radio broadcast, golf, music, giveaways and breakfast for all attendees.

The Roy Kizer Golf Course is a links-style layout spread over 200 acres located in southeast Austin. The course was named for Roy Kizer, a long-time golf course superintendent at Lions Municipal Golf Course from 1937 until his retirement in 1973. Mr. Roy Kizer earned the respect of the Austin golf community through his dedication to the course and his support of junior golf in the City of Austin. With 35 acres of lakes and 22 acres of wetlands, the golf course offers residency to migratory waterfowl in the area and is a beautiful experience for players of all skill levels.
