The Roy Kizer Golf Course is Austin's premier and most popular municipal course in the city; its links-style layout is spread over 200 acres in Southeast Austin.
With 35 acres of lakes and 22 acres of wetlands, the golf course offers residency to migratory waterfowl in the area. But despite the acreage devoted to lakes, Kizer is suitable for players of all levels. Ample fairways and the choice of five sets of tees provides each golfer the opportunity to play a course that fits their skill level and a variety of ways to negotiate the challenges set forth.
The course was named for Roy Kizer, golf course superintendent at Lions Municipal Golf Course from 1937 until his retirement in 1973. Mr. Kizer earned the respect of the Austin golf community through his dedication to the course and his support of junior golf in Austin before his death in 1974.
