About: The Ambush at Lajitas is part of the exclusive Lajitas resort, and the course is open only to resort guests. The Ambush is touted as the only "international" course in the U.S., since a 19th hole plays across the Rio Grande into Mexico. The catch is that you can't cross the river to putt out - but at least you can say you teed off in Texas and hit the ball into Mexico. The Ambush at Lajitas was built as a parkland course in the middle of the desert, but has undergone renovations to be converted into a desert-style golf course. The Ambush plays to 7,049 yards. A par-71, it carries a 72.9 course rating. In late 2007, the resort was involved in bankruptcy proceedings and the futures of the resort and the golf course are unclear.
