Lajitas Golf Resort sits on 27,000 acres about 20 miles west of Big Bend National Park, 12 miles from Terlingua, and the Resort borders on the Rio Grande River. Imagine a place where the Comanche Indians once roamed, Poncho Villa led raids across the Rio Grande, cowboys sat around an open campfire, and miners drank whiskey at the Trading Post – with dramatic Chisos mountain vistas and the borderland majesty of the Rio Grande River. Also imagine a revived ghost town converted into a classy, Old West-style resort community alongside the Rio Grande which has old west charm blended with modern day luxury, gourmet dining, championship golf, plenty of outdoor activities, and a range of spa treatments! And to give you idea what the people of Lajitas and Terlingua are like, in 1986 the elected a beer swilling goat (Clay Henry Sr.) as the major of Lajitas and he held his office until his death in the mid 1990’s! That’s some of what it’s like when you stay at Lajitas Golf Resort and Spa, which is unquestionably one of the best resorts in Texas.
Lajitas Golf Resort has grown from a small luxurious cowboy hotel with a nine-hole golf course to a flourishing world class Resort & Spa facility. It is the first resort in Texas to be named a Leading Hotel of the World and named as a AAA Five Diamond Award Winner for Quality and Service! The Resort golf course, Black Jack’s Crossing, was named in Golfweek’s “Top 100 Golf Courses You Can Play!” The Lajitas Golf Resort & Spa now includes 103 rooms, an 18 hole championship golf course, an equestrian center, an airport, an RV Park, a country store and gas station, and a real estate development.
