Many of you reading this may think that the word football, and the traditions associated with that are with the round white ball with black dots.
Well, in America we refer to that as soccer, which every fall takes a back seat here to American Football. American Football is a tradition in Texas, where we start children playing as early as 5 and 6 yrs of age.
The culmination of that effort is displayed proudly in Pflugerville at the very successful Pflugerville High School. The Pflugerville Panthers have been in existence for many years.
Pflugerville received national recognition when the Pflugerville Panthers won 55 consecutive football games (1958-1962). A large sign was placed across from the school which read as follows:
Home of National Schoolboy Football Champions 55 Consecutive Games Won
This is still a Texas record.
If you would like to join in the tradition of Pflugerville Football, plan your trip during the fall months (September till November), and visit this website for the schedule:
Equipment: Cold weather clothing may sometimes be needed.
If you are a miniature golf fan, Pflugerville may be the place for you... we have a 36 hole course here!
Austin's Park and Pizza is a great place to spend a night in Pflugerville, part carnival, part community center. Join us soon!
Equipment: Golf putters and balls are available for rental.
Although this is actually just out of Pflugerville proper, we are still going to count it. Star Ranch is a very nice course to play, and I would recommend paying the money to play here rather than your other Pflugerville options.
Weekday rates are very reasonable!
Call me up and I will tee off with you!
Equipment: Limited selection of rental clubs.
BlackHawk Golf Course is located in Pflugerville, however I would not recommend this be the key reason for a visit. I am not too impressed with the conditions of the course, however the price is right. Normally with a little discussion, you can get the greens fees down to about 27 dollars a round, which makes it a fine way to entertain yourself for four hours.
Equipment: Bring your own clubs, as the pro shops selection is limited.
The Ejection Seat is the most thrilling, heart-in-your-throat experience in
Central Texas. Take a 150-foot shot into the sky on our catapult - you'll be
back for more!
