Club History

Onion Creek is one of the most historic golf communities in Austin with 27 holes stretched across 225 acres. We are a unique gathering place for everyone that offers many social activities that are combined into a single experience for each and every one of our members and their guest.


Onion Creek Club is one of the most historic clubs in the Central Texas area, established in 1974 by Austin native Jimmie Connolly and Legendary Golfer Jimmy Demaret. Jimmy Demaret is quoted as saying “Nature put it here, all I did was manicure it”. Jimmy Demaret had the vision to let the lay of the land dictate the course layout, and with that simple understanding of course design created a beautiful and challenging course that top professionals to beginners enjoy to this day.
