Horseshoe Bay Resort (Ram Rock course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1981

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 Ram Rock course, also known as the "Challenger," is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Texas. This tree-lined parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. Narrow fairways and rolling greens are interlaced with 62 threatening bunkers, 10 water hazards and natural dry creeks on six holes.

With its dramatic elevation changes, Ram Rock offers sufficient length and difficulty to challenge the very best players, not least at the demanding island green par-3 4th. The layout is characterised by native landscaping throughout, including junipers and natural rock outcroppings. A must play if you are in the area.
