Golf Courses at Horseshoe Bay

Horseshoe Bay Austin

Slick Rock

Although water is a factor on 12 of the holes, this resort course is regarded as being the most accommodating and playable for those with higher handicaps.

The 361-yard, par-4 14th hole, sometimes known as the “Million Dollar Hole,” is the course’s flagship hole and one of Texas’ most famous due to its 35-yard, rock-walled waterfall.

Shaun Micheel, the 2003 PGA Championship winner, and other PGA Tour pros like Jason Kokrak, Wes Short Jr., J.J. Henry, and others have participated in the course’s silly-season ‘Shootouts.’

Ram Rock

Ram Rock, which opened in 1981, has consistently been the most difficult of the three resort courses and has played host to the Texas State Open, numerous USGA qualifying competitions, and other prestigious competitions. It was listed as one of the “Top 15 Courses in the State” by Golfweek.

Ten holes have water in some aspects, including the famous par-3 fourth hole, which is 191 yards long and has an island green. The course had playability improvements and reopened in May 2018.

It still necessitates highly accomplished players to map their course because of the numerous “moats” filled with water and the rocky ravines they must cross. The ceremonial drive was made by 2018 Masters champion Patrick Reed to cap the celebration of the course’s reopening.

Apple Rock

Apple Rock, which opened in 1985, was recognised by Golf Digest as the “Best New Resort Course in America” and undoubtedly features some of Texas’ most beautiful golf. At Horseshoe Bay, Robert Trent Jones Sr. used the highest land contours to create the stunning 7th and 10th holes.

After bunkers were rebuilt, tee boxes were leveled, the irrigation system was enhanced, and stone retaining walls were built to surround water hazards to improve aesthetic qualities. Apple Rock was the last of three club courses to reopen in late July.
