Directions

Directions: From downtown Fredericksburg, go west on Main Street to where Hwy 290 and Hwy 87 split. Go left 7.3 miles out Hwy 290 toward Harper. About 6 miles out you will cross Honey Creek and just a little farther you will cross Honey Creek again. Start watching on the right for Reeh Weinheimer Rd. It’s on a curve so you have to be watching. Turn right on Reeh Weinheimer Rd and go 3.1 miles to Weinheimer Rd. Turn right and go 1.8 miles. After the second cattle guard, watch for Sundheimer Rd on your left. This is a caliche ranch road. Stay on this road until the fourth gate which is a metal Lifetime gate, about 1 mile in. (don’t turn left on Mc Iinish rd) This is the entrance to our ranch. Stay on the same road until you come to another gate on the left. Turn here and follow around until you see the trial field.
