6019 FM 725
New Braunfels, TX
Nestled in the beautiful hill county, The BANDIT GOLF CLUB is located in New Braunfels near Lake McQueeney on FM 725. While The Bandit is officially part of a housing subdivision, homes along the course are scarce. You're more likely to see deer meandering beside Long Creek or a hawk swooping along the fairway than an oversized Texas mansion.
A quiet secluded atmosphere permeates the course, providing a true escape from the city. The hilly terrain provides welcome relief for Texans used to playing the flatlands, which may explain why golfers come from as far away as Houston and Dallas to play The Bandit.
