Tom Kite worked with Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell to design the original 18, The Valley and The Hills, on rolling terrain blessed with streams, lakes and majestic oaks. The father-son team of Jay and Carter Morrish designed the additional nine holes, The Creeks, which opened in July of 2008.
Fine and Casual Dining Both: At the Pinnacle Grill, diners enjoy splendid views of the Hill Country while dining on Southwest specialties prepared by a talented culinary team.
