Black Jack's Crossing – The #1 Golf Course You Can Play in Texas!

Experience World-Class Golf at its Finest!

Golfweek, the leader in golf course rankings, ranks Black Jack’s Crossing the #1 Course You Can Play in Texas and the Dallas Morning News has ranked Black Jack’s Crossing the #1 Course You Can Play in Texas since 2013! Texas Outside ranked Black Jack's Crossing the "Number One Resort Course in Texas" and Golf Magazine calls Black Jack’s Crossing the "Most Beautiful Course in Texas".

Located at Lajitas Golf Resort, a 27,000-acre resort along the Rio Grande, Black Jack’s Crossing was designed by golf superstar Lanny Wadkins, winner of the 1977 PGA Championship, eight-time member of the US Ryder Cup team (as well as 1995 team captain), and inductee into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Named after U.S. Army General, "Black Jack" Pershing who pursued Pancho Villa across the Rio Grande, the golf course combines the historical features of the land with the stunning setting of Big Bend National Park. Several breathtaking mountain holes set against spectacular mountain vistas make this course a true work of art.

The historic Lajitas Trading Post (ca. 1800's), having survived the battles of Pershing, serves as the Pro Shop and Longhorn Museum. The Trading Post (now used as Black Jack's Crossing pro shop) is a remnant from the early Texas frontier where cowboys and miners bartered for supplies and drank whiskey.

One word of advice: Don't forget the camera to bring home memories of this world class golf course!
