Horseshoe Bay Constructing Teaching Academy

by | Mar 22, 2024 | NEWS

Horseshoe Bay Resort, a premier AAA-Four Diamond in Central Texas, has started construction on a state-of-the-art teaching academy, with plans to have the space operational in the fall of 2024.

The exclusive area for members and resort guests features two indoor bays with Trackman and Toptracer technology, club-fitting services, a club repair room (fondly labeled the Dirty Room) and a demonstration area with shafts, grips and clubheads from top manufacturers like Titleist, TaylorMade and Callaway.

“Everything you could get as a tour player at a tour van will be available to members and guests at our facility,” said Horseshoe Bay Director of Golf Operations Anthony Holder.

The elevated teaching experience doesn’t end there. Once players are finished with lessons, they can go outside to one of eight covered bays nearby. Each features the same Toptracer technology that was just used during their respective teaching sessions. Each player will have the ability to see real-time data for each swing.

Packages for individuals, couples, juniors, academies and clinics will be offered. There also will be additional programs designed to incorporate fitness into a session. Holder expects that groups of business executives will reserve the space for team-building activities while sprinkling in a little golf. The Trackman technology can also turn the space into a simulator experience with nearly 200 golf courses available.

“The Horseshoe Bay Resort Golf Academy not only enhances our member and guest instruction opportunities, but it also enhances another function space for our groups adding another amenity in our tool belt to create a unique experience for, say, 12 executives who want to do a whiskey and cigar event while having long drive contests, or something similar,” Holder said.

Horseshoe Bay Resort – 45 minutes from Austin – four 18-hole championship layouts – Apple Rock, Ram Rock and Slick Rock all designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, Sr., and Summit Rock, an exclusive Jack Nicklaus Signature design – and the 18-hole Whitewater putting course.

The new teaching facility will reside on the back of the practice range that services Apple Rock and Ram Rock. Including the new building, practice bays, the putting green, chipping area, practice bunker and practice range.

The Horseshoe Bay Resort Golf Academy will total 80,000 square feet of practice space.

“I’ve had the good fortune to guest instruct at number of indoor/outdoor golf academies over the last three decades, but none like the one under construction here at Horseshoe Bay Resort. It’s not only in keeping with the high standards of our golf operation but will allow us to help golfers near and far derive more enjoyment from our great game,” said Director of Instruction Bobby Steiner.

Horseshoe Bay Resort has invested more than $100 million in a property-wide renovation and new construction. The work included new guest rooms, suites, and multi-room units, as well as renovation of the golf courses and facilities, dining experiences, meeting spaces, and more. The resort also features a world-class spa and health club, tennis facilities with 14 courts, bike rentals, hiking trails, lake activities with a full-service lake marina and boat valet service, nearby wineries, and a private airport.
