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.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
