Great course, challenging but not ridiculous. Greens and fairways were in great shape, greens really allow for ball spin. Very receptive. Very nice clubhouse, pro shop had lots of great stuff and staff was excellent. Great way to spend part of a day!

As novice golfers, my husband and I weren't overwhelmed. Great support staff, starter (Tom), pro shop and grill. The million dollar waterfall was amazing. I even got my ball over it, which was a thrill for me. We'll be back!

Compared to the other 2 courses, Ram Rock, Apple Rock, this course is average. We just played and it's in nice shape, slow greens but would prefer playing the other two I've mentioned more than once rather than play this course.

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...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.

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...More
