I manage the golf outing so I don't actually play. Heard it was a good course. A little harder than expected. The 14th hole has a waterfall and the cart path runs through it. So beautiful I went across then turned around and went through it again...Not recommended since it's one way but do it anyway (rules are meant to... More

Horseshoe Bay Resort in Horseshoe Bay, Texas is a very nice facility with many amenities - from golf on the pristine Slick Rock (signature golf course), to tennis and swimming pool. They hold some fun events throughout the year.

Just a great course. The view on all the courses are beautiful. I was not so happy with my score though.

Living on the 7th fairway of Slick Rock, I guess I know the course pretty well. If you want the course at it's best, show up October 15th thru The 2nd week of December. Like all Texas courses, summer heat can take it's toll on both the course and the golfers. Everyone wants to come to "The Bay" in the... More

One of the most beautiful courses in Texas. The views are magnificent for being in Texas. Of course you are in the hill country and that place is know for beautiful views. The greens had just been air-rated and a little rough but I could see the potential. We were not playing in a tournament it did not matter.

This is a relatively easy course to play. It has interesting holes front and back. Driving through the waterfall is a fun and rare event in golf for both young and old. Enjoyable !

Beautiful and very playable golf course for any handicap. Waterfall hole is really spectacular. But, the traps were even worse than you would expect on a public course. They are full of small to medium stones and the sand is not evenly distributed resulting in erratic outcomes. Very disappointing. The clubhouse makes maybe the best burger I've ever had. The...

This is truly one of Texas's hidden gems. This place has become a second home for me, and the staff truly will treat you like a VIP guest.

We had played this course back in the early 1970s when it was new. It didn't seem very difficult back then. Now we are talking about a different layout. This course is in amazing condition considering that the hill country just had one of the harshest winters in many years. The greens on the back nine have recovered nicely from... More

Excellent service at the clubhoude and course management. The course is typical of a resort, but the play was excellent. The price was around $160/round. Finished both rounds in 4 hours.
