The historic Onion Creek Club in Austin has been sold. The new owners are a group of locals who also own River Place Country Club on the northwest side of town, a property they purchased in 2003.
Onion Creek includes 18 holes designed by Texas golf legend Jimmy Demaret, and another nine more recently added by Ben Crenshaw. The picturesque course, known for having some of the prettiest holes in the state, was the first host course of the Legends of Golf, the tournament that gave rise to the Seniors Tour (now Champions Tour).
