Apple rock was very scenic. Starts out with a great front 9, lots of variety, good views, well designed. After the nice, short par 3 over the lake #12, the stretch of par 4's on the back 9 are a little weak, but overall a very solid track. Worth playing for sure.

Decently hard, LONG course from the ladies tees. In great condition. Some claim this is the more scenic, as it has lake views, but it is comparable to Ramrock, which I preferred. Plenty of opportunities to lose balls. Nice facilities, very nice condition.

WOW what a course! It was in great shape even immoderately after the rain. Very friendly staff. The range and practice areas were great. Small pro shop with the bare necessities. Food ate the grill was very good and made for you as you waited.

Course was in great condition. Fun to play with just enough difficulty to keep you attention. Par 3's overwater pose the greatest challenge. Starter gave a great intro and even made sure we got a picture from the first tee. Snack bar was good and fairly priced.

I love this course. It is very challenging but not too hard. The staff loaded my clubs and took great care of us. I saw more deer and wildlife on many holes. Ram Rock is the hardest of 3 courses and Slick Rock is the easiest. All have great greens.

Justin was the driver and tour guide of the ski boat we rented. Justin made sure he had all the skies, life jackets, raft, etc. that would make our afternoon fun. Justin even had a play list of tunes that were ideal for our age group. Justin was patient as he helped us all take turns on the raft and... More

This course is very nice. In May the course was in excellent condition. Tricky greens with a lot of slope, and in the afternoons they get fast. This is hill country so a lot of elevation changes.

The course is fairly wide, so lots of room for offline shots. A couple of par threes are tough, with water around the green.

This is one of the most scenic championship courses you will ever play. Changes in elevation are dramatic as are some of the views. Hole designs are outstanding and the greens very good and putt true. The traps are some of the worst I've ever played. Not pebbles, but actual rocks abound. Don't think about exploding a shot, I had... More
