Texas Open 2017
Apple Rock Course
Apple Rock, Horseshoe Bay Resort's third championship Robert Trent Jones, Sr. course, was completed in 1986 and received distinction as "Best New Resort Course" by Golf Digest. Widely known as one of the most scenic courses in the state, this spectacular course spans 147 acres of the rolling Texas Hill Country along the shores of constant-level Lake LBJ. The Apple Rock course is situated in high, rocky terrain, offering stunning views of the lake and the Tif-Eagle Bermuda elevated greens are surrounded by 56 sand traps. Though not overly tight, this course still demands well-placed drives and accurate club selection.
Ram Rock Course
Ram Rock was constructed in 1981 and is famously known as the "Challenger." Narrow fairways and rolling Crenshaw Bentgrass greens are surrounded by 62 deep bunkers, ten water hazards and natural dry creeks on six holes. With its dramatic elevation changes, Ram Rock offers enough length and difficulty to challenge scratch players in any group and features an especially demanding island green par 3 hole (No. 4). Author, journalist and golf enthusiast Turk Pipkin writes, "If you want to put your game to the ultimate test of Texas golf, the breathtaking, backbreaking, eye-pleasing Ram Rock has all you could want and a little more." This course received a 4 ½ star rating from Golf Digest and was named as one of the top 15 courses in the state by Golfweek magazine.
