About This TexasGolfOn Deal
Get a round of golf with cart and two meals for just $119 at this historic Texas dude ranch that offers great golf and fun for the entire family.
In the heart of Texas Hill Country and the Cowboy Capitol of the World, lies an oasis that takes its guests back in time to the days of the Wild West. With its beautiful setting and abundant wildlife, it’s no wonder John Wayne, Erol Flynn, Willie Nelson, Slim Pickens and Buck Owens were among the many stars who made this one of their favorite getaways.
Welcome to the Flying L Guest Ranch, a 542-acre dude ranch in Bandera that offers modern-day Texans a great escape and a smorgasboard of fun, laughter and Texas history. From championship golf to cottages designed by associates of Frank Lloyd Wright to its lazy river water park and miniature golf course to horseback riding to its evening campfires, s’mores and western hoe-downs, there is something for everyone.
Once the set for the TV series “The Cisco Kid,” the Flying L is now a wonderful place to reconnect with friends and family or enjoy a peaceful and romantic getaway with your significant other.
This incredible $119/person package is available seven days a week and is a 26% discount off the normal rate of $159. It includes golf, lodging, breakfast & dinner, supervised children's activities, nightly western entertainment, campfires & s'mores and use of the miniature golf course and water park. Hiking and horseback riding is also available on mile after mile of natural woodlands replete with deer, possum and squirrels.
The Flying L became a dude ranch in 1946, when retired Air Corps Col. Jack Lapham purchased it from the original polish settlers to create a place “where modern people can go and find themselves in the midst of yesterday.” The colonel built an airstrip and ran a flight school here. New aircraft was also tested here and new aircraft designs were introduced at the Flying L. It was featured in the 1947 edition of LIFE Magazine and soon became a favorite “watering hole” for war heroes, movie stars, and literary giants.
Employees of the ranch took over ownership in 1998 and have continued to develop it into a unique Western Resort and Conference Center. It is more diverse than any other guest ranch or resort facility in Texas. It hosts family vacations, family reunions, corporate groups, golf groups and tournaments, youth groups, church groups, day groups and more.
