Hole #16, The Most Beautiful Par 3 in Texas

Early on, Mr. Nicklaus and the development team made a commitment to design a truly unique course—one that has become a classic among the premier courses and is currently ranked “5th Best Course in Texas” by the Dallas Morning News and it has been rated the top golf course in the Hill Country by Dallas Morning News every year since opening.  Rather than fronting homesites closely on both sides of the fairway, homes are nestled among acreage estates and set far back from the course, hidden by rolling hills, live oaks and native grasses.  A series of hilltops defines the perimeter of the course as it meanders through natural valleys below.  Extraordinary natural water features present challenges, but are too beautiful to be called hazards.  Whatever your skill level, you will find this to be an incredible experience that tests your skills and thrills your senses.

Jack Nicklaus

The name Nicklaus has long been associated with greatness on a golf course.  The 18 major championships.  The electrifying finishes.  The sheer will to win. Jack’s achievements are legendary. However, the name Nicklaus transcends his dominance as a player and extends far beyond Jack alone.  Today, Nicklaus also stands for superior golf course design, a result of Jack’s more than three decades as a renowned golf course designer and his sons’ and son-in-law’s solid reputations as designers themselves. Together, they represent Nicklaus Design, a team of the world’s most accomplished golf course design associates, agronomists, industry consultants and experts in golf course construction and marketing.  Just as Jack once raised golf to a higher level, Nicklaus Design has elevated the standards of golf course design. The result of that dedication and ingenuity is hundreds of spectacular courses worldwide.  Yet as unique as each design is, they all share the Nicklaus’ philosophy of working closely with clients, enhancing the natural environment and creating courses that are both challenging and enjoyable for players of all levels.

Upon seeing the pristine canvas on which he would create his masterpiece, Mr. Nicklaus was inspired to comment, “On my first visit to Cordillera Ranch, I knew the course was already out there. The land is so perfectly suited to becoming an exceptional course; I just have to carefully peel away the cover to reveal its potential.” He’s done exactly that.  The course winds through rugged, oak-covered terrain featuring limestone canyon walls and cascading water in rock bottom creeks, all the while preserving the native vegetation that makes the Texas Hill Country so special. Numerous holes offer 25-mile views of the Guadalupe Valley.  Bentgrass greens and Zoysia grass fairways create playing surfaces that are second to none.  Gorgeous scenery.  Challenging play.  And the signature of one of golf’s greatest talents.  Add it all up and you have one of the most unforgettable courses in the Southwest; a course that is destined to be as legendary as its creator.
