Lions Municipal Golf Course has been a part of Austin for almost 100 years as the city’s oldest and most beloved public course. “Muny” is a treasured urban green space and was recently recognized as a nationally significant civil rights historical site as the first public course in the South to racially integrate. But Austin is in danger of losing this invaluable property to development.

Save Muny has worked since 1973 to preserve Lions Municipal Golf Course as an inclusive, affordable place for all Austinites to enjoy the game of golf and the outdoors. With public events and outreach campaigns, the Save Muny initiative continues to demonstrate the course’s intrinsic value to the Austin community and has helped to negotiate three lease extensions with the City of Austin.
