Reviewed on

If you are fortunate enough to play it, Summit Rock is a standout Hill Country private club and one of Jack Nicklaus' more fun designs. The course has a wonderful setting and the amenities are even better (the driving range is complete with rocking chairs, music, fire pits, you name it -- you could spend all day here working on your game). The course has lots of risk-reward options like reachable par 5s, drivable par 4s, etc. In typical Jack fashion, you will be tested, particularly off some tee boxes, and the greens are very difficult, while bunkers can be menacing. The course is open only to members, but hopefully one day they will open it up to resort guests too (like with the club's three other courses).
