Plum Creek Golf Club
At the heart of Plum Creek lies the Plum Creek Golf Club. The golf course features 18 championship holes of golf, each with its own unique character. The Plum Creek Golf Club course has the distinction of having a layout where no two fairways touch. The advanced golfer can take the Texas-size challenge of playing from the back tees, which measure over 7,100 yards. Four sets of tee boxes offer a fun and exciting round of golf for every handicap.
Negley Fishing Lake
Got an urge to get away from it all but don't want to go too far? Well, you're in luck because Plum Creek has a 30-acre catch and release fishing lake adjacent to the golf course in the heart of Plum Creek. Fish all you like, just don't get in trouble for being gone too long.
Haupt Community Center
We've all seen a community center in a neighborhood, but have you seen the community center in Plum Creek? This is a place where the people make it happen. From serious meetings to seriously fun parties, the community center is free for residents to use by reservation. The open and flexible space has a kitchen, is adjacent to a resort-style pool, and is surrounded by a grove of shady oak trees. Now that's a community center.
Folks that live in Plum Creek love Plum Creek and testament to that comes from the Community Life Director. Always a resident of Plum Creek, the Community Life Director organizes events throughout the year such as Front Porch Days, school carnivals, the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, and more.

Yep, living at Plum Creek is living in the middle of all things awesome. To show specifically what we mean, take a tour of Go20. It's a website dedicated to life all around Plum Creek.
Parks: Large and Small
With over 150 acres of open space, you'd be hard pressed to chase a rogue ball the full distance. So in addition to wide open spaces, Plum Creek has pocket parks tucked-in throughout the neighborhood. They make for great community gathering spots for a quick game of catch, wrestling matches, big-wheel races, and other general outdoor shenanigans. If you need to expand your space a bit, then visit the larger area parks such as Fergus Park, an area shaded among the oak trees packed full of playscapes, and home to Plum Creek's annual Front Porch Days.
McNaughton and Fergus Pools
Plum Creek is home to two Jr. Olympic pools each with its own personality. McNaughton Pool, adjacent to Negley Elementary School, is host to the Hill Country Tri-Club as well as a competitive swim team. There is a changing room, shaded baby pool, and children's depth play area. Next to the pool, you'll find basketball courts and a covered picnic area. Fergus Pool, adjacent to the Haupt Community Center, is a resort-style pool with zero-entry beach, shaded island, and larger than life splash toys. Choose your favorite, or alternate between the two if you can't decide.
Get to Know your Neighbors
Feel like an activist? Join one of the committees by the residents for the residents. From welcoming new neighbors to designing dog parks, you can join in deciding the direction of your neighborhood. If you'd rather take a more social approach, jump into one of the many clubs that has bloomed in Plum Creek. Wine tasting, book clubs, golf groups - or taste some wine while reading a golf book. However you choose to enjoy your neighborhood is up to you.
