Pool amenities at Kissing Tree by Brookfield Residential in San Marcos, TX

Take a dip

You’ve got your choice – indoors or outdoors? If you’re looking to soak up that Texas sun, head outdoors to the resort pool. It features a beach entry, in-water lounge chairs, plenty of shaded seating, an infinity edge, party cabanas, fire features, and a separate jacuzzi area. This is a place for neighbors to spend time together and become great friends. Prefer a reprieve from the summer sun and heat? Head to the indoor lap pool. The junior-Olympic sized pool is enclosed by large rolling glass doors that open wide to stunning Hill Country views. Luxury locker rooms add a spa-like atmosphere and a convenient place to get ready to dive in and, after your laps, get ready for your day.

Hit the links

Golf and active adult communities seem to go hand and hand. The Kissing Tree Golf Club is a semi-private 18-hole golf course designed to incorporate the natural character of the land’s footprint and the Hill Country backdrop to create a one-of-a-kind experience for golfers. Each hole provides an avenue of play with varied angles that allow golfers of any skill level to enjoy the game and feel challenged. If you want to practice your short game before heading out, check out the putting course that wraps through The Mix amenity campus under the shade of the local oaks. If you’re not an avid golfer and just love a little competition and activity with friends, this is also a fun way to just get outside and enjoy the sunshine.

Friendly competition on the pickleball and bocce courts at Kissing Tree in San Marcos, TX

Friendly competition

It’s time to determine who’s the best on the block. Want an activity that’s easier on the knees and more casual than tennis? Check out pickleball. Not only is it a lot of fun, but it offers great exercise, suits all ages, and is super social. Hit one of the eight pristine pickleball courts and enjoy the game all about fun and friendship. Maybe you’re not looking for such rigorous exercise, maybe you want a game that can be played with a ball in one hand without spilling your drink in the other. Don’t worry, we’ve got that for you with bocce ball. Head to one of the six courts and challenge as many as eight of your favorite neighbors to see who will take the top spot. We also have good ol’ fashioned horseshoe courts. Placed within the natural hill scenery, our courts are one of a kind. Play a casual game or join one of the horseshoe competitions set up through the HOA.
