AAA Four Diamond Resort with Wine Tours and Four Championship Golf Courses
Horseshoe Bay Resort is located in Texas Hill Country, where more than 30 wineries are located within a 90-minute drive of the property. Throughout the year, the resort offers group wine tours (additional fees apply) featuring stops in nearby Spicewood and Fredericksburg. When group tours aren’t scheduled, you can book a private excursion.
Horseshoe Bay Resort has been named one of the best golf resorts in the country by Golf magazine. Four championship courses are onsite, each incorporating the lovely Texas Hill Country scenery. The Ram Rock course features 10 water hazards and deep bunkers, while the Apple Rock course is set on 147 lakeside acres stretching from the water’s edge to the top of Cap Rock. The Whitewater putting course is adorned with rose gardens and habitats for exotic birds.
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. At the onsite marina, you can take a pontoon cruise or rent watercraft, skis, wakeboards, 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’more-making by the fire pit.
