Making the rounds at HSB - Slick Rock

This was the third and final round we played at HSB. Ram Rock is a tough track to follow, but Slick Rock did an admirable job.

This was certainly the easiest course of the bunch, but conditions were top notch. The fairways are very generous, and even offline there isn't too much terrible trouble. The greens are also accessible and friendly.

The layout of the course is fun, but not particularly challenging for good players. If you're driving the ball well you can overpower the course a little bit and you generally don't have to think twice about blasting a driver.

The resort makes a big deal out of the recent renovations to the course. You can definitely tell the work paid off. Tee to green everything was in great shape. The "million dollar" hole (#14) wasn't all that impressive, but at least it got a catchy name!

This was an enjoyable way to end our trip, and it's a course anyone can enjoy. It'd definitely worth a try if you're in the area.

Best Conditioned Course in Central Texas

We had played this course back in the early 1970s when it was new. It didn't seem very difficult back then.
Now we are talking about a different layout.
This course is in amazing condition, because the hill country just had one of the harshest winters in many years. The greens on the back nine have recovered nicely from a fungus. They are impressive.
When you arrive at the course you are greeted by friendly and helpful cart attendants. The pro shop guy was a bit confused because I had already checked out.
It took him awhile to figure it out.
The starter here is a very brusk individual, more suited for non-public contact work.

Slick Rock follows the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. concept of “hard par, easy bogey.” The front nine is strategically 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. All in great shape.
Robert Trent Jones Sr. has used
his bunkers to dominate the greens approach on many of these holes.
This wide spread use of bunkers here, is consistent with the "hard par, easy bogey" policy.
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.
There is more brick and tile work on the cart paths and surrounding walls here than any other course.
The original developer/owner Norman Hurd created this magnificent course as a part of three great golf courses in what was once a barren, undeveloped area south of lake LBJ.

Slick Rock Golf isn't just a walk in the park, it's
an adventure in first class golf.

* based on 1970s costs.
