Lions Municipal Golf Course has served its citizens since 1934 and has long been one of the City's most popular courses. Constructed originally by the Lions Club in 1928, Lions has hosted many notable golfers, including Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson and, of course, Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw. Lions also hosts Texas' oldest amateur golf tournament, the Firecracker Open.
Lions was recently added to the Registration of National Historical Places by the National Park Service, recognized as one of the first courses in the South to desegregate prior to the Supreme Court decision in Brown V. Board of Education in 1954.
While "Old Muni" has changed over the years, it remains a quality test to Austin's most loyal golf customers.
