Horseshoe Bay Resort (Slick Rock course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1971

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 Slick 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. Slick Rock spans roams across 170 acres, with more than 71 bunkers and 12 water hazards to navigate along the way. The front-nine is routed through colourful outcroppings of Texas granite and a wonderful mixture of trees, including native oak, persimmon, willow, chinese tallow and eldarica pine. The back-nine is more open and rolling.

Slick Rock is home to Horseshoe Bay's “million dollar hole,” the short par-4 14th, which features a winding cart path that takes you through a waterfall. 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.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
