The Club at Horseshoe Bay

Explore the Lake Lifestyle

Just a peaceful one-hour drive from Dripping Springs, Horseshoe Bay Resort is a hidden gem offering something for everyone. 

One of the largest golf resorts in the country, Horseshoe Bay is the original Texas lakeside resort destination. Built on more than 9000 picturesque acres of the Hill Country along the spectacular shores of constant-level Lake LBJ, the AAA Four Diamond resort is the only waterfront resort in Texas.

Well-known by avid golfers, Horseshoe Bay features four championship courses. However, that well-earned decades-long reputation as a golf destination isn’t the only thing the club has to offer. 

The resort’s marina offers a host of lake amenities including boat and personal watercraft rentals as well as boat valet services. Lake LBJ is beautiful, and unlike other nearby lakes, drought conditions have no impact on those who want to enjoy the lake life.

In recent years, the club has become a more family-friendly environment. The resort also features a world-class spa and health club, tennis and pickleball facilities, bike rentals, and hiking trails. There really is something for everyone.

And, the best is yet to come as Horseshoe Bay Resort has invested more than $100 million in a property-wide renovation. The work includes new guest rooms, suites, and multi-room units, as well as renovation of the golf courses and facilities, dining experiences, meeting spaces, and more. 

Membership offerings are founded on the premise of a lifestyle well deserved. You won’t find a single property like this anywhere but Horseshoe Bay. And best of all, it’s just an easy hour's drive from home.

Imagine a perfect April day. The sky is clear and wildflowers line the highway. Palm trees sway as a cool breeze meets you upon your arrival at Horseshoe Bay Resort. You toss the keys to the valet and you and the family head into the Yacht Club. You walk past the members-only pool and lounging area to enter the dining room.

Natural stone walls are counterbalanced by golden chandeliers. It’s a room that would impress any audience and it exudes timeless elegance with contemporary touches.

Your family is met with an abundance of recreational and social opportunities, all with unyielding attention to detail. 

Time to hit the links. Looking for a challenge? Ram Rock, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. features narrow fairways, dramatic elevation changes, and a demanding island green par 3 signature hole. Marvel at the native landscaping, rugged natural rock outcroppings, and Hill Country views as you play the course GolfWeek magazine named one of the Top 15 in Texas.

Perhaps you want to stay close to the water and play the recently renovated Apple Rock course. This spectacular Jones-designed course features several holes along the shores of Lake LBJ. Dramatic elevation changes test the skills of players at every level. 

Another classic Jones course, Slick Rock is more player-friendly, but still challenges golfers with more than 70 bunkers and 12 water hazards.

Today, however, you choose to play Summit Rock, the exclusive, members-only course. Designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, this course boasts some of the most stunning scenery in Texas and is widely considered to be the Golden Bear’s best work. Elevated tee boxes lead to breathtaking vantage points, including the famed 3rd hole where golfers are rewarded with a 30-mile Hill Country view. While spectacular, the course is playable with large greens.

Meanwhile, your spouse has access to too many amenities to list. Perhaps they relax on a beach under palms by the water. Or maybe they feel like getting out on the lake. The full-service marina features boat and personal watercraft rentals, a waterfront bar and grill, boutique shopping, boat slips, and trailer storage. 

Speaking of relaxation, the resort’s full-service spa includes a hair and nail salon, resistance pool, whirlpool, as well as steam and sauna facilities. There are plenty of wellness options for those whose perfect day includes breaking a sweat. The club boasts a full gym and more than 30 fitness classes available to members each week.

Maybe your family wants to compete on the courts. The Paseo Racquet Club features 8 hard tennis courts, 6 difficult-to-find red clay courts, and tons of dedicated pickleball courts with more on the way.

As the day winds down, the brand new Cap Rock Clubhouse is the perfect place to be together and watch the sunset. Perched atop an impressive outcropping of ancient granite boulders, this warm, luxurious dining and entertainment space showcases a decidedly modern and inspired take on classic Hill Country architecture.

With the alluring surrounding scenery in mind, the design draws in sunlight and outdoor scenery with slender roof openings and gently angled floor-to-ceiling windows. Three large rock-spire sculptures separate the entry, bar area, and dining room with boldly designed rock-adorned fireplaces.

The stylish, contemporary clubhouse complex services members and their guests with upscale and casual dining overlooking an inviting, finely-appointed pool cabana with ample amenities for swimming, lounging, sunning, dining, refreshment, and socializing.

With a large, open indoor dining space, posh cocktail lounge, private dining areas, spacious patio dining, the energized pool cabana space, and lush great lawn all overlooking the 18th greens of the Apple Rock and Slick Rock courses, the Cap Rock Clubhouse is the place enjoy the lifestyle you deserve.

There’s always something exciting at the club: monthly wine dinners, boating happy hours, family events, new member mixers, and more. Plus, annual member events include a comedy festival, holiday party, and special seasonal family weekends.

Explore your perfect day this Easter weekend. It’s the best time to visit Horseshoe Bay as the resort hosts a hot air balloon festival that’s open to the public. The action starts early at 7 a.m. Saturday, April 8th.

“This is our family’s happy place and escape from the city. We so look forward to each visit and participating in the many activities. There is always something to do for the entire family. My husband enjoys golf with our sons while I drop our daughter off at the Kids Club to play. Then I get some R&R and relax at the spa. We meet in the afternoon for family pool time and then top it off with a fabulous dinner at the Yacht Club."

-Nikki Moriarty
