HORSESHOE BAY, Texas – Horseshoe Bay Resort, the award-winning lakefront destination in the Central Texas Hill Country, is now offering direct charter service to and from its private jet center to packaged groups as large as 30. With exclusive ground shuttle service to the resort and its highly-acclaimed Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Jack Nicklaus golf courses, escaping to magnificent Lake LBJ’s most beloved destination has never been easier.
Boarding Horseshoe Bay Resort’s spacious, private Embraer ERJ135 30-passenger jet, in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Laredo, Corpus Christi or San Antonio means you’re only minutes away from a rewarding getaway to a resort setting many consider Texas’ most beautiful destination. A bevy of relaxing and rejuvenating amenities awaits, along with new dining delights at the completely-renovated, 7,000-acre vacation retreat.
The preferred drive-to destination for discerning Texas travelers for nearly half a century, Horseshoe Bay is even more accessible by air thanks to its own private jetport, featuring a lighted, 6,000-foot runway that can accommodate all personal and business aircraft, up to the size of a regional jetliner.
The AAA-Four Diamond- and Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Award-winning resort shines brighter than ever after a full-scale, $100+ million renovation that includes four re-energized golf courses, completely upgraded guest rooms, expanded conference space, a reimagined luxury spa, and brand-new restaurant concepts in the hotel tower, yacht club and Whitewater entertainment complex.
“These days, people have their tightly-knit groups they prefer to travel and enjoy the finest things in life with, and whether that’s extended family, fellow club members, neighbors or co-workers, they’ll all appreciate the convenience and time savings our concierge-caliber private air and ground transportation affords them,” says general manager Bryan Woodward. “The convenience of being in Dallas or Houston at 12:30 and on the first tee of one of our award-winning golf courses at 1:15 is an extremely appealing thought, given the hectic pace of so many of our lives. To give our valued guests the treasured gift of more time to enjoy themselves and escape the everyday is something we’re really passionate about at Horseshoe Bay Resort.”
By purchasing all 30 seats on the Embraer ERJ135, a group of trusted friends or relatives can enjoy the good life at Horseshoe Bay Resort without the rigors of a road trip or the need to spend time renting a car or dealing with the hassle of commercial air travel. Smaller group packages can be arranged, based on date and space availability. “If group members are splitting the charge of buying out all 30 seats, the individual rates can be extremely attractive,” says James Gutierrez, Horseshoe Bay Resort’s director of sales. “Hassle-free travel makes your resort getaway even more enjoyable and rewarding.”
Situated on the gleaming shores of the constant-level Lake LBJ and meandering through a rugged expanse of rolling Hill Country, the scenic Horseshoe Bay Resort is one of the few waterfront resorts in Texas. Tropically landscaped with palm trees, bold water features and the most colorful vegetation this side of Hawaii, this resort stands apart, both visually and in the guest experience. The golfing experience matches that uniqueness. With four acclaimed championship golf courses and the innovative 18-hole Whitewater Putting Course, Horseshoe Bay Resort offers an appealing array of unforgettable golfing experiences designed by World Golf Hall of Fame members Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jack Nicklaus.
The resort also features a world-class spa and health club, tennis facilities with 14 courts, bike rentals, hiking trails, lake activities with a full-service lake marina and boat valet service and easy access to dozens of nearby wineries. As part of a significant renovation to Horseshoe Bay Resort’s 249-room Tower Hotel first floor and lobby is the reimagining of its popular first-floor restaurant as an authentic Texas barbeque smokehouse. Dubbed “The Baddest Barbeque in Hill Country,” J’s Restaurant and Bar offers guests refined Texas barbeque and authentic Hill Country cuisine, featuring slow-cooked fare from the renowned Bad Donkey Barbeque. J’s Bar is an ideal spot to gather for happy hour or a post-day drink, while J’s Patio offers al fresco dining overlooking the Tower Pool.
“Our sales team is extremely talented at custom-building packages for small and large-scale groups who appreciate the ease of travel into the full-service Horseshoe Bay Resort Jet Center,” Woodward says. “They know every group of travelers is unique and they have the ability to place groups into itineraries that exceed their expectations for an enriching escape into this beautiful destination on the rich shores of constant-level Lake LBJ. Taking the Horseshoe Bay Resort jet simply gives you more of our rarest commodity, time, on the water, on the golf course, in our pools and at the Yacht Club.”
Horseshoe Bay Resort Jet Center also offers aircraft parking, hangar spaces, tie downs and fuel services. The Resort Jet Center Team can arrange all aspects of a group’s aviation business, from hotel accommodations to coordinating indoor and outdoor meeting space and golf outings.
