This resort has three outstanding eighteen hole courses. The Slick Rock Course is the oldest of the courses and the most friendly. The fairways tend to be wide, with large, shady oaks and bunkers defining the turns. The greens, totally rebuilt in 1997 at a cost of $4 million, are large and undulating. The signature hole on Slick Rock is #14, a 361-yard, par 4, which crosses a wide river with lily pads and a roaring waterfall. The Ram Rock Course is the toughest of the three, and every hole has interesting features. Hole #4, a 191-yard, par 3, features an island green. Water comes into play on eleven holes in all on the Ram Rock Course. The Apple Rock Course is nearly as challenging as Ram Rock, but is far more forgiving from the regular tees. The best aspect of this course are the distant views from the elevated tees, the attractive ponds, and the boulders set on end that serve as 150-yard markers. These courses, which are located in the Texas hill country, host the State Amateur and qualifying rounds for the PGA School's first stage. "GOLF Magazine" ranked the Apple Rock Course 83rd among the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" in the U.S. for 1996. The Slick Rock Course was selected by "Golf Digest" as the 11th "Best in State" course for 1997-98. The same publication afforded the Ram Rock Course 40th among "Top 75 Resort Courses" for 1992, and rated it the 6th "Best in State" course for 1995-96. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" ranked the Ram Rock Course 79th among the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play," in the U.S. for 1998. Only guests of the hotel and members are allowed to play these courses.
