The most difficult of the four courses at Horseshoe Bay, the Ram Rock Course, came along when the Slick Rock course couldn’t stand up to the pros in one of the Texas State Opens. After complaints about Slick Rock’s ease, Jones came in and built what is respected throughout Texas as one of the state’s most difficult courses.

Rock outcroppings pingpong wayward shots, natural streams and waterfalls suck in golf balls, and the narrow fairways are enough to make the most virile of men crumble under pressure. Water is present on 10 holes and 60 bunkers dot the landscape.

Every hole stands out, but we’ll mention the 488-yard par 4 No. 2, a ridiculous hole for a hack, and the island-greened, 191-yard No. 4.
There's an island green at No. 4, 191 yards from the rear, and the greens are slick-bent, the only Horseshoe Bay course that has retained this quick putting surface.

Note that former Texas Tech head football coach and all-around good-ole-boy Spike Dykes lives off hole 11.

The par-4 16th hole at Ram Rock plays downhill to a small green guarded by water on the right side.
