Lions Municipal Golf Course, known simply as "Muny" to many locals, is a 5825 yard par 71 golf course in the center of Austin, Texas.

Historically the course is important as the first desegregated golf course:

In the latter half of 1950, Alvin Propps, a nine-year-old African American caddie at Muny, along with another African American youth, was detained for playing the course in defiance of Jim Crow laws. Taylor Glass, the Mayor of Austin at that time, quickly conferred with members of the city council, and a decision was made not to prosecute Propps or his companion. From that point forward, African Americans played golf at Muny.

With regards to golf, the course features some extremely sharp doglegs that require conservative tee shots that call for accuracy and strategic placement over distance. Much of the ground is limestone and the rough can be quite thin in dry seasons so aggressive play can add quite a bit of distance to shots at these times.

The front nine has relies on doglegs, bunkers, and elevation to challenge golfers, but the back nine features water hazards prominently.
