A luxury family-friendly residential community and golf course is coming to Driftwood, situated across 800 acres of land.
Driftwood Golf and Ranch Club is located half an hour southwest of Austin. The idea behind the community is “buy land, build a house, join the club,” said a representative for the Discovery Land Company.
Memberships are only available to Driftwood Golf and Ranch Club property owners, but will be “vertical memberships,” meaning its benefits will extend to other family members.
The property’s crown jewel is the 18-hole golf course, designed by Tom Fazio, which will have practice facilities, a clubhouse, comfort stations and four PGA professionals on staff.
The property will also feature several on-site restaurants, spa and fitness facilities, a “Kid’s Club,” family pool, recording studio, general store, Vineyards, organic garden and greenhouse, and more. On-site medical services and other member services will also be available.
Additionally, outdoor opportunities like hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, tennis and pickleball will be a part of their “outdoor pursuits,” which will employ local community members to help build activity itineraries and act as guides.
Residential opportunities in the gated community include over 300 home sites, from Villas, Cabins, Bungalows and lots of customizable estate, all with multiple bedrooms and creek, Vineyard or golf course views to choose from. Homesites start at over $ 3 million while Developer homes start at $ 5 to $ 6 million.
Following Discovery’s Sustainability Philosophy, homes and amenity facilities are required to harvest rainwater from a roof runoff into an injection well. On-site Wells will serve as the water supply for the Vineyards and some Landscaping areas and will inject water back into the local Edwards Aquifer to Replenish groundwater.
According to a Discovery Land Company representative, the golf course and regenerative farm are complete, and several other major amenities are under construction, including the golf house, teaching studio and family pool complex.
Over a dozen homes are under construction with another dozen or so in the final stages of their review process. The creek clubhouse, spa and fitness center and golf clubhouse are expected to break ground over the course of the next 12 to 18 months.
