there are plenty of rocks at seawright... bring her hammer and tell her, "can it! i'm golfing here"

report back on your success.

Meh on Chuy's... it's OK but not my favorite. I suggest Polvo's or Trudy's instead if you want eeeexcellent Mexican food with the Austin vibe.

Although it may be too late for you to even read this at this point :lol:

Really? :shock: Well, you got my attention with that suggestion.

As soon as I have more details on my trip I will let you know.

We just got back to Dallas. We ended up eating at Bone Daddy's and then walking down congress ave. We didn't find too many shops that interested us but we did stop in for some drinks at Darwin's Pub. I think most of the shops were north of the capital building but there's always next time.

ON THE OTHER HAND. Wilco is now in my top 5 favorite courses. The only thing that would make it better would be some other forms of hazards (creek, pond, etc), some elevation changes, and some better fairways (can't really play a skip shot on that course without hitting a few rocks), and some tee signage. But once it gets some concrete pads in I will definitely travel down to play a tourney if they ever get one. It really makes you work for a score if you're a righty. Disc Junkie whooped my ass (damn lefties and lefty courses, jk). I wish I could have played it about 3 weeks ago when I was getting my form down and playing almost everyday. It only took me 17 holes to warm up. The course reminds me alot of Cedar Hill's Lester Lorch park. It really could be a top notch tournament course.

Disc Junkie - thanks for showing me around. Hopefully next time I come down there I'll remember to bring my game with me.

You guys actually may not have been far enough south on Congress...all the boutiques and cool stores are well south of the Capitol building and even a bit south of true "downtown".

DiscJunkie is super good, plus that's one of his home courses, so don't feel too bad. :D

Give me a holla next time you come down and I'll give you the South Austin DG tour.
