Hancock Golf Course deemed historic

Thursday, December 11, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Parks and Recreation Department announced Wednesday that, with the help of the Texas Historical Commission, Austin’s Hancock Golf Course has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The course, which was founded in 1899 and incorporated in 1900, is the oldest continuously operated course in the state. In 1913, the Austin Country Club added nine holes to the course. The National Register of Historic Places is the nation’s official list of historic and archaeological resources, and was established under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. More information about the state’s role in the program can be found here.
