The course is fairly wide, so lots of room for offline shots. A couple of par threes are tough, with water around the green.

Great golf courses that are both challenging and scenic and a pleasure to play. The experience is greatly compromised by the the fact that the clubhouse that burned down almost three years ago has never been replaced. Having to use the "locker room" at the...More

I live in the Texas Hill Country and this is one of the best courses you can play without a doubt. The front 9 is fantastic and demands your best golf, while the back 9 provides a chance to score. The 10th hole could easily...More

The Applerock Course at Horseshoe Bay is a beautiful course. There are some great hill country views and while the course is not easy it is not punitive either and can be enjoyed by golfers with a wide range of handicaps. It is definitely worth...More

There are few courses in the area that have the combination of challenge and beauty as "Apple" (how the locals refer to it). Whether I go out for a quick nine in the afternoon or bring guests to play 18, I always have a great...More

Apple rock was very scenic. Starts out with a great front 9, lots of variety, good views, well designed. After the nice, short par 3 over the lake #12, the stretch of par 4's on the back 9 are a little weak, but overall a...More

Decently hard, LONG course from the ladies tees. In great condition. Some claim this is the more scenic, as it has lake views, but it is comparable to Ramrock, which I preferred. Plenty of opportunities to lose balls. Nice facilities, very nice condition.

WOW what a course! It was in great shape even immoderately after the rain. Very friendly staff. The range and practice areas were great. Small pro shop with the bare necessities. Food ate the grill was very good and made for you as you waited.

Course was in great condition. Fun to play with just enough difficulty to keep you attention. Par 3's overwater pose the greatest challenge. Starter gave a great intro and even made sure we got a picture from the first tee. Snack bar was good and...More
