Apple Rock is touted as one of the most scenic and breathtaking championship golf courses in Texas. Spanning 147 acres, Jones, Sr. used some of the highest, most picturesque land in Horseshoe Bay for the Apple Rock layout.
The 18-hole, Par 72 course begins in high, rocky terrain and finishes along the shoreline of Lake LBJ, boasting dramatic elevation changes, high-quality Bermuda fairways and Bentgrass greens that offer faster and truer putting surfaces.
Upon opening in 1985, Apple Rock was named among the "Best New Resort Courses in America" by Golf Digest, and has hosted the Texas State Open, USGA Qualifying events and other regional professional tournaments. With more than 50 bunkers, and water coming into play on seven holes, it will challenge even the most skilled players.
