Because Life is Better at the Lake

The Best Golf Courses Around The Lake


Are you ready for a relaxing weekend on the golf course? Right now is the perfect weather to spend the day putting on the green. Even though it’s still a little chilly in the mornings, the afternoons have been absolutely beautiful when the sun warms up. A day full of golf by the lake in 60-70 degree weather, what more could you ask for? We’ve put together some of the best golf courses around the lake, enjoy!


Legends Golf Course - Kingsland

One of the most ideal 18-hole golf courses for anyone looking to try their hand at golf with (or without) an experienced friend. While the Legends Golf Course is complicated enough for those looking for the challenge, but easy enough for someone just starting out with a golf club. You’ll walk around the 200 acres in awe of the beautiful scenic hill country, golf the 8th hole right alongside Lake LBJ, and trust us when we say - it’s going to be hard to leave.

If you’re looking to make a vacation out of your stay, check out the Villas at the Legends for your lodging!

Blue Lake Golf - Horseshoe Bay

Nestled inside a small neighborhood community located on the South shore of Lake LBJ, Blue Lake Golf has one of the greatest courses right in the center of the peninsula. If you’re looking for a shorter course, Blue Lake has 9 holes and is designed for golfers of all skill levels. You’ll be blown away by the stunning views you’ll be able to see next to the lake and wildlife surrounding the course.

Rating: Forward Tees Red/Green 61.8/93 (Men’s), 65.1/104 (Woman’s), Rear Tees White/Blue 63.2/102 (Men’s), 67.8/104 (Woman’s).

Horseshoe Bay Resort - Horseshoe Bay

Horseshoe Bay Resort has 3 golf courses, each spreading roughly 150 acres across the land, with one more on the way and a couple different options for the kiddos, too! Each course is challenging in their own way, especially where the greens are surrounded by sand dunes. While the courses may prove to be a bit more challenging, you can rest assured that you’ll still see your fair share of Texas Hill Country on the lake. Here, the greens are even elevated, so you’ll probably get to see further than you have been able to before!
