This course has been open since 1985, and like Ram Rock, has been host to the Texas State Open and many other USGA events, as well as local professional tournaments.  Golf Digest named Applerock the Best New Resort Course in America, and the par 3, signature12th hole has been ranked among the most scenic in the state more than once!

Texas Hill Country Golf Courses: Appleock Golf Course - Horseshoe Bay, TexasSelected as the "Best Resort Course" in 1986 by Golf Digest, it is the most breathtaking of the three.  The course begins at the highest point on the property with panoramic views of the rolling hills and Lake LBJ in the background.  Perhaps the most dramatic holes are the back to back par five 10th and 11th holes which dive from the top of the Caprock down to the blue shores of Lake LBJ.

Texas Hill Country Golf Courses: Applerock Golf Course - Horseshoe Bay, TexasThe charm of this course draws upon the natural beauty of the Hill Country, with its native oak and elm trees and elevated greens that offer spectacular views of the surrounding area.  Enjoy the beauty, but don't be fooled by it! The signature par 3, number 12 hole measures 179 yards from the back tees and plays across an undulating stretch of Lake LBJ - one misplaced shot might sink an entire round!

Like all of the courses at Horseshoe Bay Resort, Applerock's Bentgrass greens and Bermuda fairways are professionally maintained.
