Rock has 72 sand traps, twelve holes with water hazards, and huge, undulating
greens that can offer difficult pin placements, but still manages to be user friendly for
the amateur, duffer or professional due to the four different teeing positions on each
hole and five positions on the 17th hole.
The design of Slick Rock, which opened in 1972, not only shows the mark of the legendary
Robert Trent Jones, Sr., but also of Norman Hurd, one of the developers of Horseshoe Bay
Resort who oversaw the beautiful landscaping of the course.
The developers of the course
took great care to follow mother nature's lead utilizing as many natural resources as
possible. The result is a peaceful blend of nature and what else...great golf!
Slick Rock's greens are made up of
Penncross Bentgrass, Tifdwarf tees and Bermuda grass on the fairways. The course is
kept in USGA competition form at all times and a top of the line irrigation system keeps
the grass watered from boundary to boundary, including the roughs.
Slick Rock embodies the Robert Trent Jones, Sr.,
philosophy of "Hard Par, Easy Bogey." The course is characterized by
five sets of tees enabling the course to be continually changing from day to day.
Various levels of membership are offered by the Resort, including Temporary
