Horseshoe Bay Resort's three award-winning, 18-hole golf courses were all designed by the master architect, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. In fact, the resort is the only golf destination in the Continental United States showcasing three or more RTJ Sr. courses and is recognised as a true bucket list golf destination. Experience an unforgettable day on the fairways when you tee off at Slick Rock, Ram Rock, and Apple Rock. Stretching across Lake LBJ, the Apple Rock course is one of the most scenic landscapes in the Texas Hill Country
Designed by legendary golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Apple Rock is touted as one of the most scenic and breathtaking championship golf courses in Texas. Spanning 147 acres, Jones, Sr. used some of the highest, most picturesque land in Horseshoe Bay for the Apple Rock layout. The 18-hole, Par 72 course begins in high, rocky terrain and finishes along the shoreline of Lake LBJ, boasting dramatic elevation changes, high-quality Bermuda fairways, and Bentgrass greens that offer faster and truer putting surfaces. Upon opening in 1985, Apple Rock was named among the Best New Resort Courses in America by Golf Digest, and has hosted the Texas State Open, USGA Qualifying events and other regional professional tournaments. With more than 50 bunkers, and water coming into play on seven holes, it creates a welcome challenge for even the most skilled players. The course is 6,399 metres and has a slope of 136.
Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, Sr., today Slick Rock's 170 acres stands in the best condition since its opening, following a complete 2016 renovation. In partnership with the Robert Trent Jones II team and Larson Golf Services, new life has been breathed into this classic, award-winning gem with renovations to its greens and bunkers, the installation of new green collars and an upgrade of the irrigation system. Its 70+ bunkers and 12 water hazards invite players to experience one of Texas' top courses. Wandering through a landscape of Texas granite outcroppings, pampas grass and native oak, willow and Eldarica pine trees, the most memorable feature of the course has to be the awe-inspiring "Million Dollar Hole," where players follow a winding path across a 35-yard waterfall. Tee off and photograph this one-of-a-kind experience for yourself. The course is 6,279 metres and has a slope of 134.
Famously known as the "Challenger," this Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design features narrow fairways, dramatic elevation changes, and a demanding island green par 3 hole (No. 4). Native landscaping, rugged natural rock outcroppings and the Texas Hill Country views add to its designation as one of the "Top 15 Courses in the State" according to GolfWeek magazine. Scratch players enjoy the challenge of its 62 deep bunkers, 10 water hazards and natural dry creeks surrounding its Crenshaw Bentgrass greens and Bermuda fairways. Debuting in 1981, Ram Rock has earned respect for its challenging layout and championship test of golf. It's hosted the Texas State Open along with several USGA qualifying events and other professional tournaments and has been recognised as one of the world's most outstanding golf courses by numerous publications and golf journals. The course is 6,333 metres long, and it has a 137 slope.
Summit Rock (Members only – Enquire to find out how to play)
Summit Rock, Horseshoe Bay Resort's exclusive, members-only course, is a Jack Nicklaus Signature designed 18-hole layout. The Par 72 course boasts some of the most stunning scenery in Texas and is considered by many to be the Golden Bear's best work. Summit Rock has earned many accolades including Golfweek's Top 100 Resort Courses in America (#61). Nicklaus said each hole of Summit Rock is a "Signature Hole" as he blended the course layout through the scenic topography and stands of Texas Live Oaks. Holes one and two play through a wide-open, level-playing area and afterwards players are rewarded with a 30-mile Hill Country view from the elevated tee box at the famed 3rd hole. There are many elevated tee boxes with spectacular views through holes 4-12 before heading down the scenic ridgeline on hole 13. Most of the greens are large, raised and guarded with slope and undulations that will challenge any putter reads.
This intriguing 18-hole, par 72 putting course was designed to play just like a competitive course, but in miniature.
