The City of Horseshoe Bay serves many communities: Horseshoe Bay Resort, Escondido, Oakridge, Deer Haven, Blue Lake, and Sandy Harbor. All are built on the shores of Lake LBJ about an hour west of Austin on US Hwy 71. Lake LBJ was created in 1950 when the Granite Shoals Dam was constructed across the Colorado River and was originally called Lake Granite Shoals. President Lyndon B. Johnson owned a ranch along the lakeshore where he hosted world leaders and dignitaries, and the lake was re-named after the president in 1965. The lake is renowned as an almost constant-level, pass-through lake where LCRA standards do not allow the lake to fluctuate more than one foot from the 834 msl contour line. The Horseshoe Bay zip code also includes the Blue Lake Golf Club, a nine-hole golf course that is open to the public but members and Blue Lake property owners enjoy special membership rates.
Horseshoe Bay Resort, a private, lake and golf course resort, is built on the shores of Lake LBJ with numerous amenities and varying levels of membership. Resort membership isn’t required to live in any of the resort subdivisions.
