Austin City Council Member Slams Golf Course’s ‘Flagless Error’ Hosting Adult Entertainment Club Tournament
The council member who represents the Northwest District of Austin, where a golf course held a racy tournament this week with an adult entertainment club, said she fielded calls from voters concerned about of the incident.
The Vista Ridge High School golf team tried to practice at the Avery Ridge Golf Club on Monday, but the coach sent the kids home after meeting the adult entertainment club.
“I started getting complaints from constituents about what happened,” Austin City Councilman Mackenzie Kelly, who represents District 6, told Fox News Digital on Thursday. Not that a student should be exposed to this type of behavior that was happening at the golf club that day. I saw pictures of women topless, in thongs, passing out from alcohol. I ‘On m’ said there were women dancing on golf carts with no clothes on.”
The school district told parents in a message on Tuesday that some “adults were acting very inappropriately” when teens showed up for practice.
“Unfortunately, our golfers have witnessed lewd behavior,” the post read. “What happened yesterday is not acceptable and we will work closely with Avery Ranch to ensure it never happens again.”
Yellow Rose, the club that hosted the tournament, said Thursday it has hosted the event for the past four years at Avery Ranch.
“Avery Ranch is a private golf course and The Yellow Rose rents out the entire course for the entire day,” the club said in a statement. “This is an adult tournament and no children were allowed on the course at any time while it was being played. The high school golfers were only on the driving range and not on the actual course.”

The club also claimed a photo obtained by Fox 7 Austin only showed women “wearing thong bikini bottoms.”
Additional footage posted by participants appears to show bare-breasted women serving alcohol.
Avery Ranch did not respond to requests for comment this week.
Kelly, meanwhile, said it was a “flagrant error” for the golf club to schedule the adult entertainment club tournament at the same time as high school golf practice.
“It’s in a beautiful location and single-family homes go back to the golf club itself, and there’s a wrought iron fence that surrounds the golf club. So anyone, not just high school kids, could have to be exposed to this kind of lewd behavior,” she said.

Austin’s code department will discuss potential violations with the golf club, Kelly said.
