Following COVID-19 closures, Horseshoe Bay Resort is now welcoming guests back to its Hill Country-based hotel, restaurant and golf course.



The resort officially opened all services May 29 in accordance with orders issued by Gov. Greg Abbott, according to a press release. The business will be operating with modified practices to serve a limited capacity of clients.



We’re proud to have done our part to help ‘flatten the curve’ during Shelter-in-Place protocols in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Managing Director Bryan Woodward said in the release. “We’ve spent valuable time putting new procedures and health measures in place to ensure the safety and enjoyment of our present and future guests.”



The reopening arrives on the heels of several full-scale renovations totaling $100 million. Golf courses, guest rooms and conference spaces all saw upgrades. The Resort also announced a reimagined spa and a newly created restaurant concept.



The resort is gearing up to unveil its redesigned Cap Rock clubhouse in the coming months, according to the release. Woodward said the team is excited for guests to experience the recent upgrades.



“From the volume of calls and emails we’ve been getting, it sounds like travelers are ready to be here, too,” Woodward said.
