The course was in great condition for August in San Antonio and the staff was friendly. What killed it for me was the 5+ hours it took to play a round. We waited on every single tee box, and on a few boxes watched not only the fivesome that was walking in front of us tee off, but also the group in front of them as well.
It's one of those "everyone should try it once" type of places due to the history, square greens, etc, I just wish they all hadn't tried it on the same day I did.
We got a great deal with the "hot deal" tee times. I would have been severely disappointed had we paid the normal $70 rate.

first time I've played this course since its remodeling years ago. I hadn't played there in years because the price was raised so much after the remodel. The course is in great condition, but it's a short course--might even be categorized an an executive course. It has 5 par 3's (one less than 100 yds) and it seems the par fours averaged 320 or so. At the regular price, it's still overpriced, but I'd play it again with a Golfnow Hotdeal.

This course as a lot of trees so you have to play smart golf. But the course has a nice layout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pennjackson Very good challenge
Fun layout. Makes you think about what shot you're going to hit. Wish the traps hadn't been so soggy. Greens were interesting at first to read but a fun challenge. Can't wait to go back

Rated 4 out of 5 by BabetteHansen Good, but...
This was our first time playing this course. We heard/read a lot of great things about it. It's pretty much back and forth, fairly straight so not too difficult in that regard. However, the trickiest part is that most of the greens are surrounded by sand traps. So, unless you are great with your wedge, rolling up on the green is very difficult. And speaking of the greens, some were squares or rectangles and I have never seen such a thing. Course conditions for time of year were good. Staff was friendly. But if I had to pay full price, I would rather play the Hyatt courses on west side of San Antonio, they offer better variety of same good conditions. Prices for drinks were fair, but no cart came around on a 100 degree day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tiburonazo Great shape and great history
Pretty challenging course with a lot of history. Course was in great shape. Lots of tall trees to add to the challenge, greens were in pretty decent condition. The only bummer was that I thought I was going to play by myself, but when I showed up to the course, they paired me up with a random couple with more experience than me. Turned out to be ok, since it was an older couple and they were nice. I'll definitely play this course again, but not in the summer, it was way too hot.

Course was well kept, as were the greens. Laser range finders come in handy when finding out distance from hole. Very friendly staff. Well worth the money we got on for. Only complaint is that they have no driving range, so we went to one before our round. All-in-all I will be back, and recommend as a must play in SA.
