The Slick Rock Course started it all at Horseshoe Bay in 1972 and is the oldest and most hacker-friendly. Giant oaks guard the somewhat generous fairways of this 6,834-yard layout. Water comes into play on 12 holes, but Mr. Jones lessened the impact of bunkering and created inviting targets with the large, rolling greens, which were completely rebuilt in 1997.

The longest par 4 is on the front, playing 421 yards as the 7th hole. This one is tricky because of the fairway bunker in the landing area off the tee.
Everyone talks about the 361-yard 14th hole, which requires a lovely little tee shot over a wide river valley that features waterfalls, lily pads, and the rare Guadalupe river bass. After the tee shot, the drive to the green makes the day, crossing the water near the waterfall and providing some relief to the summer heat.
