Texas Outside ranked Black Jack's Crossing the "Number One Resort Course in Texas". Golfweek magazine named Black Jack's the "Best New Course in Texas." And since opening in 2012, the course also has been named the number-one "Best Golf Course You Can Play in Texas" by the Dallas Morning News, number-one "Most Beautiful Course in Texas" by Golf Magazine and the number-four "Best Course You Can Play in Texas" also by Golfweek.
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 Clubhouse) is a remnant from the early Texas Frontier where cowboys and miners bartered for supplies and drank whiskey.
