AAA Four Diamond Resort with Wine Tours and Four Championship Golf Courses
Horseshoe Bay Resort is located in Texas Hill Country, with more than 30 wineries set within 90 minutes of the property. Throughout the year, Horseshoe Bay Resort offers group wine tours (additional fees apply) where overnight guests can travel by coach with other guests to Spicewood area vineyards, or head south to visit Fredericksburg-area wineries. When group tours are not scheduled, resort guests have the opportunity to schedule private tours through the resort’s transportation department, which owns and operates a fleet of Cadillac Escalades, Sprinter vans, and larger 24-seat passenger buses.
Horseshoe Bay Resort has been named one of the best golf resorts in the country by Golf magazine. There, four championship courses incorporate the lovely Texas Hill Country scenery. Named 1 of the top 15 courses in Texas by Golfweek magazine, the Ram Rock course features 10 water hazards and deep bunkers. At the Apple Rock course, you can drive your cart across 147 lakeside acres that sprawl out from the water’s edge up to the highest point of Cap Rock. The Whitewater putting course has a regulation 18-hole golf course trimmed with rose gardens and exotic-bird habitats.
Though golf is a big draw, there’s plenty more to do at the sprawling resort: you can take advantage of a full-service spa, waterfront dining venues, and family-friendly activities. The Horseshoe Bay Resort Marina offers activities ranging from pontoon-boat cruises to watercraft rentals including ski boats with wakeboards, skis, kneeboards, and tubes.
The resort also boasts seven restaurants and bars ranging from formal fine-dining venues to casual poolside bars. If you bring the kids along, there’s a wide selection of family-friendly pursuits, such as rubber-ducky races, dive-in movies, and s’mores by the fire pit.
