This is a really fine golf resort. The resort and restaurant are very impressive.
I don`t play golf any more but my wife and I rented a golf cart to check out the course and do something different than hiking. It was worth the effort. What a fine but very challenging couse. There is a small airstrip for private planes which is the best way to play golf there and stay at the fantastic resort. I would go in the winter. We were there in February and caught a day with mid eighties. I think the 60s would be ideal temperature to play there. The golf carts are heavy duty for climbing and coming down steep hills. A regular golf cart would not work on this course. It is a very impressive golf course and I heard one of the most challenging courses in the U.S.. The resort is very nice and a small town. The restaurant is delicious and a gorgeous setting. Unfortunately my great photos of the view from the restaurant are on my phone and I already started this review before realizing this.

BEST RV PARK AROUND BIG BEND NP
We spent four days exploring Big Bend National Park and then another day at the State Park. I had researched several RV parks in the area online before we arrived. I am so glad that we drove the additional 15 minutes past Terlingua, TX to stay here. This park is far better than anything that we saw in Terlingua. Actual paved streets and RV pads. Very nice club house, shower facilities and awesome laundry. The only disappointment was the pool at the RV side, but since you are on the resort property, you can use the main pool - which I did.

Lajitas brought to you by the man who brought us the Dakota Access Pipeline
Now the owner has put a huge statue of Robert E Lee right on the golf course. I have stayed here several times before I knew who the owner was. Always found it to be poorly maintained, with poor food service. Beautiful views yes. Rooms cleans yes but lacking. Owner is the CEO of Energy Transfer.

Bad Drinks and Racist
We stopped in for a drink after seeing the fabulous Big Bend Ranch State Park. The bar doesn’t open until 3:00, which is a little strange but was not a problem for us. We wanted REAL margaritas, not made with a mix. The menu described the Margarita as “tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice.” But when we got our drinks they were clearly made with a mix and were so bad my wife suggested we either get what was advertised or get a refund, and she never sends anything back. After a friendly conversation we got new Margaritas, but the lime juice was obviously from a bottle and not fresh. It was pretty disappointing for a pricy drink at a so-called resort. We were still thinking about staying when we came across some stories about how the owner brought the Robert E. Lee statue from formerly named Lee Park in Dallas, now Turtle Creek Park, and put it on the practice putting green at Lajita’s Black Jack Crossing golf course. Bad service, bad drinks, and pro-racist attitudes assure we will never go back.

Greaat place to stay while visiting Big Bend NP
Spen 2 nights at Laotians Golf Resort while visiting Big Bend NP. Several choices of accomodations including a old western type of hotel. We had a nice room across the street with a nice courtyard with water and fountain in the center.There is a boardwalk with a bakery, spa, pizza parlor and restaurant and bar on property.
