Lajitas Rebuilding The Ambush

As noted earlier, The Ambush golf course at Lajitas Resort was mostly washed out by severe flooding earlier this year. That original course was designed by Randy Russell and Roy Bechtol, a ribbon of green through the Chihuahuan desert. And it included a 19th hole (actually, hole 11A) with a tee shot across the Rio Grande, into Mexico (no, you didn't get to cross over to finish out the hole).

Lajitas Resort recently announced plans to rebuild The Ambush. The new Ambush will be designed by Lanny Wadkins Design Group and built by Fezler Golf. Construction was scheduled to begin this month, with completion targeted for Fall 2009.

    I played that Ambush course several times back in the '90s on company getaways.. very enjoyable little track as I recall... kind of tucked into a wide spot in the RG valley.. I can imagine very well that it flooded, considering it was sitting on a flat in a sort of oxbow section with the RG running right alongside..

    I might have to go back now, having heard this news!
