“The Million Dollar Hole”
The 14th hole at Horseshoe Bay Slick Rock
It may be one of the most beautiful holes you have ever seen. It’s not much of a challenge to build a hole next to an ocean or in front of a majestic mountain. But it’s a feat to design a memorable hole without them. The par-four 14th hole at Horseshoe Bay Resort’s Slick Rock has achieved that.
It’s often referred to as “The $1 Million Hole,” the short par-four 14th adorned with a winding, waterfall-walled bridge. In a word, it’s a photo-op. It’s a hole you want to play over and over.
When the wind is down, it’s not long or an intimidating hole. Use driver or 3-wood off the tee and play to the either side of the fairway depending on the pin placement and you should have a short to mid-iron into a generous, receptive green.
There may be a short wait on the tee if players get caught in the moment and want to have a picture of this unique hole. Can’t blame them.
