ABOUT OUR MEMBERSHIPS

Our memberships at the Jimmie Austin Golf Club are specifically geared toward those individuals and families sharing our vision for the University’s Golf Club.

We believe a club is an idea of a shared experience – one where the bonds of friendship and family are forged and strengthened on the course, on the practice tee/training center, and around the clubhouse. Join the celebration and take advantage of our commitment to excellence.

Jimmie Austin Golf Club offers a variety of options to meet your needs. Our members enjoy several advantages such as preferred tee times, excellent practice facilities and the new Michael A Cawley Center for Golf Instruction featuring full golf simulation for members only. We also provide our members with special golf shop pricing and loyalty programs.
