Nestled near the banks of Lake Conroe, La Toretta's 18-hole, par-71 course showcases a mature layout that was spruced up by renovations in 2007. Carried out by course architect Jeffrey D. Blume, the recent project made the course more playable and dramatic by converting two short par-fives into heftier par-fours and stretching a longer par-four into a par-five that promises scoring opportunities to long hitters. Blume also revamped the putting surfaces, which now boast Bermuda grass that provide a truer roll than a shopping cart without any wobbly wheels. Before rounds, golfers can get a feel for course conditions at the full-length driving range or on the practice green.
Sequestered between the 18th green and the first tee, La Toretta's clubhouse overlooks the dramatic waterways that occupy the edges of its majestic starting and finishing holes. Inside, guests unwind over pub far at the Final Putt Lounge, which nestles underneath soaring, wood-panel ceilings.
A trip to La Torretta is already a relaxing retreat, thanks to the resort's location on Lake Conroe, which is lined by sandy beaches. The Spa at La Torretta takes that relaxing experience to the next level with pampering beauty services. Guests can settle into shiatsu-massage chairs with herbal tea, juice, or healthy snacks in the appropriately named Relaxation Lounge, which features a Zen-inspired garden. And if they can pull themselves out of those comfy chairs, they can indulge in treatments such as a Tropical Essence massage with mango body polish and tropical essential oils, a Pure Fiji pedicure that includes a coconut-milk footbath, and a Milk & Honey body wrap. The spa also offers haircare services for men and women.
Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe live on at Lavish Necessities. They're present in the eye bat of every woman who bears a set of eyelash extensions inspired by the timeless beauties. Whereas the Betty set matches Bette's au natural glamour, the Audrey extensions look like hers did—as if they've been coated with just a touch of mascara. Marilyn lashes, on the other hand, evoke the bombshell by framing eyes in lush, striking fringe that's impossible to ignore. Clients can augment freshly adorned faces with subtle airbrush tans.
