Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort
"Our course is once again a golfer's paradise, in every sense of the word. Tripp Davis and his team have restored the course to its championship level, ensuring high-quality, fun playing conditions for golfers of all skill levels." - Matt Reams, Director of Golf
The Resort Course at the popular Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort underwent a major restoration in 2015. Tripp Davis and Associates evaluated in a master plan how the once prominent championship course could be significantly improved. The result is a stunning transformation of an outdated landscape of tired holes into a stimulating “must play” golf experience.
Restoration of the course by Tripp Davis, which included complete bunker and tee work, started Spring 2015. Fairways were regraded to improve drainage and playing surfaces, while three greens were resurfaced and a new practice putting green was installed. New and artful bunker designs have especially increased the drama and strategy of many holes. “Attractive bunkering is one of the key ingredients in defining the visual character of a golf course; the greater the visual and strategic character, the greater the experience,” offered Tripp. “I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a bunker and tee project have as big an impact on the visual and strategic interest of a golf course as what’s been achieved here.”
"The golf course is simply beautiful with great rolling terrain, huge old live oaks and stunning vistas," said Tripp. "Our focus has been simple; to regain the best of its original character and add certain unique enhancements for today’s playing styles and the resort’s many guests and members. I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done.
Additional upgrades and improvements to the driving range were completed in 2016. Target greens were rebuilt with contours and a new short game green was added. Golfers will enjoy a higher quality practice experience to hone their game.
First opened in 1983, the Tapatio Springs Resort is regarded as one of the best resorts in Texas and has been a winter haven for golfers from across the U.S. and Canada.
