Outdoor Pursuits: The Outfitter Center Opens At Cordillera Ranch

Very few clubs or communities in Texas have embraced a natural landscape and active outdoor lifestyle as Cordillera Ranch has. Fewer still have managed to capture a sense of place and outdoor tradition with such timeless authenticity and character. With a deep respect for nature’s beauty on the Ranch, it is the sporting lifestyle and the Guadalupe River that makes Cordillera Ranch wonderfully unique.

On May 19, 2017, we celebrated the opening of the NEW Outfitter Center at Cordillera Ranch. Thanks to the 50 or so members who celebrated the evening with us!

The Outfitter Center Pro Shop carries lines of apparel and accessories for all your outdoor and river recreation needs. We are a dealer for several kayak companies, including Jackson Kayak, Ocean Kayak and all the brands within Johnson Watersports. We also carry products and offer special orders on Costa del Mar, Northwest River Supply, Columbia, Reddington, Sage, Temple Fork Outfitter, all Pur Fishing brands and many other outdoor companies. We guarantee you will not find a better price, and we will match any retail pricing.

Our newest product, now available for rental and trips, is the STAND UP PADDLE BOARD — designed especially for the river. A great start is a paddle on Swede Creek Lake before moving out to the river.

In classic Hill Country fashion, the new Outfitter Center blends local materials and aesthetics into a space that captures the imagination of the outdoor lifestyle. Dig a bit deeper, however, and you’ll discover a “home base” for one of the finest outfitter programs in Texas. From the Outfitter Center, our staff coordinates and conducts guided fishing excursions of all forms — from fly fishing for reds on the Texas coast, to catching bass on the Guadalupe River and Canyon Lake, to heading south to the Devils River for smallmouth bass, and beyond. Should you prefer to fish on your own, the Outfitter Center offers a shuttle and launch service for your personal boat, giving all Cordillera Ranch Members access and use of our most precious resource — the river.

Many owners have discovered the rejuvenating and cardiovascular attributes of kayaking the river. Miles upon miles of river await exploration for those inclined to engage this natural wonderland. Whether for pleasure or an evening sunset paddle, or for sport as a programmed exercise event, kayaking offers a unique form of fitness in a setting that will inspire you to uncover your best self.

Toobing is also a popular pastime in the Hill Country and we have plenty of toobs on hand for those family gatherings.

Beyond exquisite golfing and dining, The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch offers an adventurous Outdoor Pursuits program encompassing nearly any outdoor activity under the sun or moon. Spend an afternoon of kayaking, paddle boarding, shooting, riding horses, practicing archery or fishing just minutes away from your home. The new Outfitter Center is the hub for all things outdoor on the Ranch!
