A couple of hours away from the crowds of this week's PGA Tour event in Houston is Horseshoe Bay Resort.

The last of the three courses to open here, Applerock is arguably the best of the bunch.

Selected by Golf Digest as 1986's Best New Resort Course, the Applerock layout (designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr.) plays along the shoreline of Lake LBJ. The signature hole on the Applerock layout is the par-3 12th that plays across a stretch of the lake as it curves along the fairway.

For those seeking a lesser challenge, there's always Whitewater Falls -- a lighted 18-hole putting course designed like a regulation course with fairways, bunkers and water hazards.
