Slick Rock was built in 1971 and spans approximately 170 acres, providing more than 33,700 feet of golf frontage property. With multiple tees on every hole, more than 71 sand traps and 12 water hazards, Slick Rock embodies the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. philosophy of “hard par, easy bogey.” The front nine is topographically routed through colorful outcroppings of Texas granite and a magnificent mixture of trees: native oak, persimmon, willow, chinese tallow and eldarica pine. The back nine is open and rolling with Crenshaw Bentgrass greens and 419 Bermuda tee boxes.
Yardage markers are hollywood juniper clustered with purple sage. Extensive planting of bamboo and pampas grass adds color and texture to this unforgettable course. Slick Rock is home to Horseshoe Bay Resort’s awe-inspiring “Million Dollar Hole” (No. 14) featuring a winding cart path that takes golfers on a ride through a waterfall that spans more than 35 yards.
