Austin Country Club’s course, site of the 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play on the PGA Tour, was designed by Pete Dye and opened in 1984.
The club was founded in 1899 but changed sites several times before building the current course. The layout has been the site of the Match Play since 2016, and this will be the last year of the event at the club.
Austin Country Club ranks No. 12 in Texas on Golfweek’s Best list of private courses, and it ties for No. 176 on Golfweek’s Best list of modern courses built in or after 1960 in the U.S.
The course will play to 7,108 yards with a par of 71 for the Match Play. The PGA Tour has advised the course might look a little different this year, as an ice storm in February damaged more than 1,200 trees.
