Horseshoe Bay Resort (Apple Rock course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Horseshoe Bay Resort (Apple Rock course) Est. 1986

Where2Golf says: 

The Horseshoe Bay Resort is home to four 18-hole championship golf courses. Located at the Cap Rock clubhouse are the Apple Rock and highly-rated Ram Rock courses, both designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. The Slick Rock course, another RTJ Sr design, is located four miles away. The private Jack Nicklaus-designed Summit Rock course is three miles from the Cap Rock clubhouse.

The Apple Rock course is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout. This tree-lined parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Widely known as one of the most scenic courses in the state, the layout roams across 147 acres of rolling Texas Hill Country and along the shores of Lake LBJ. Apple Rock is located in high, rocky terrain that offers stunning views of the lake. The back-to-back par-5 10th and 11th holes provide dramatic elevation change, taking golfers from one of the highest points at the Cap Rock clubhouse down to the shores of Lake LBJ in just a few strokes.

Though not overly tight, this course still demands well-placed drives and accurate club selection.Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
