Summit Rock, Horseshoe Bay Resort’s exclusive, members-only course, is a Jack Nicklaus Signature designed 18-hole layout. The Par 72 course boasts some of the most stunning scenery in Texas and is considered by many to be the Golden Bear’s best work. Summit Rock has earned many accolades including Golfweek’s Top 100 Resort Courses in America (#61). Nicklaus said each hole of Summit Rock is a “Signature Hole” as he blended the course layout through the scenic topography and stands of Texas Live Oaks. Holes one and two play through a wide-open, level-playing area and afterward players are rewarded with a 30-mile Hill Country view from the elevated tee box at the famed 3rd hole. There are many elevated tee boxes with spectacular views through holes 4-12 before heading down the scenic ridgeline on hole 13. Most of the greens are large, raised and guarded with slope and undulations that will challenge any putter reads.

The Ultimate Putting Course

Our intriguing 18-hole, par 72 putting course was designed to play just like a competitive course, but in miniature. The Zoysia Grass putting course offers a scenic landscape of waterfalls, rose gardens, exotic birds and a trail. Golfers use their putters to play through fairways with challenging bunkers and water hazards and putting surfaces.

Ideal for family fun, buddy trips or perfecting your putting game, this day-and-evening-use course beckons players of all skill levels and brings excitement to any visit.
