Going big in Bee Cave: Hotel, offices, shops and hundreds of homes planned for final Spanish Oaks phase
Bee Cave is about to get busier. Two developers are partnering to bring an 80-acre mixed-use project bustling with shops, apartments, offices, houses and a hotel to the Austin suburb. Called the Village at Spanish Oaks, the community would be a milestone for commercial development in Bee Cave — a slice of walkable, urban living not seen before in the quiet enclave.
The Spanish Oaks Golf Course stands as a testament to the rare talent of course architect Bobby Weed. Not only did he create a beautiful and challenging layout, rated among the best in Texas, but he also made it one of the most environmentally sensitive courses ever built, fully embracing the rugged natural topography in his design and restoring native vegetation that had been killed off decades before.
Weed’s talent was recognized early on by none other than the legendary Pete Dye, who designed nearly 200 courses during his career and is one of only four golf course architects to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
