Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Cut N Putt Golf Course: Pedernales Cut N Putt is a beautiful nine-hole course spanning the hill-tops near the Pedernales River in western Travis County, Texas. It’s just 8 songs away from Austin. Owned by Willie Nelson and operated by Pro, Fran Szal, the Golf Club is more than just a beautiful course; it’s a relaxing and refreshing divergence from the formal country club scene. The rules here are a little different. We play golf here to have fun, and as you would expect, a lot of fun is had by all.
