TOURNAMENT OVERVIEW

MARCH 25-28, 2021

World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play

Location & Course Information

AUSTIN, TEXAS AUSTIN COUNTRY CLUB The current course at Austin Country Club was built on new property in 1984 and designed by Pete Dye. As configured for the tournament, a stretch of holes on the back nine is in the “lowlands” close to Lake Austin, while the rest of the course is on higher ground. Yardage: 7,108; par 71.

Notable Course Features

The signature hole is the par-5 12th, which plays downhill to a green that sits hard by Lake Austin. It’s reachable in two strokes, but water awaits an errant shot, making it an excellent risk/reward hole for match play.

2019 Champion (No event in 2020) Kevin Kisner, U.S.
