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 bar is well done and the bartender very attentive.

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 a fungus. They are impressive.
When you arrive at the course you are greeted by friendly and helpful cart attendants. The pro shop guy was a bit confused because I had already checked out.
It took him awhile to figure it out.
The starter here is a very brusk individual, more suited for non-public contact work.

Slick Rock follows the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. concept of “hard par, easy bogey.” The front nine is strategically routed through colorful outcroppings of Texas granite and a magnificent mixture of trees: native oak, persimmon, willow, Chinese tallow and eldarica pine.
The back nine is open and rolling with Crenshaw Bentgrass greens and 419 Bermuda tee boxes. All in great shape.
Slick Rock is home to Horseshoe Bay Resort's awe-inspiring "Million Dollar Hole"* (No. 14) featuring a winding cart path that takes golfers on a ride through a waterfall that spans more than 35 yards.
There is more brick and tile work on the cart paths and surrounding walls here than any other course. The original owner Norman Hurd created this magnificent
course as a part of three great golf courses in what was once a barren, undeveloped area south of lake LBJ.
Slick Rock Golf isn't just a walk in the park, it's
an adventure in first class golf.

* based on 1970s costs.

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.
