Canyon Springs Golf Club
Very Nice Course
I had a very nice day at this course. It started at the front counter. Mike was the staffer at the counter. I have never played the course before and Mike was so helpful explaining the nuances of the course. I played by myself so that helped. He couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The course itself was in good shape overall. There were a few holes that required some carry over obstacles but I thought the fairways were wide and easy enough to hit. The sand in the bunkers was like the pros get. It was fluffy, soft and deep. So many courses have pretty bad bunkers, not the case here. I didn't give it a five star rating because the greens had been punched that morning. Smaller tines were used so it wasn't like core aeration but still small holes in the greens. I would really rate the course a 4.5 if there were such a rating. Not having played the course before it was a little bit of a challenge to figure out where to land your shot on some holes. However, that made it fun too. It was a hot day but the fairways seemed to be watered fairly well. When I got back to the pro shop after my round Joe was working the counter. He was as nice as Mike was that morning. Friendly staff rates pretty high in my book. They have a little refreshment/snack hut between holes nine and ten. I stopped in before starting the back nine to get a beer. The girl working the place couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I grabbed a beer and she was nice enough to refill my water bottle without trying to make me buy another bottle. And she wouldn't let me leave without a cup of ice for the water since it was so hot outside. I stopped in the "Cliffhaus" restaurant after my round for a beverage and it was happy hour. The bartender that waited on me, Ryan, was as nice as the others that I dealt with that day. I was there after 5:30 and the kitchen was closed so no food. It was clean and orderly but only two beers on tap but enough others to satisfy anyone. So if it's golf you want, this is a place to play.

Pace of play was great
Conditions were great. Greens were in prefect shape. Putts ran true. We played as a twosome and ran into a slower group and they let us play thru.

Rough and tough
The course was in beautiful condition with lush fairways and smooth greens. The rough - and there is plenty of it - was 30 inches high and thick. Forced carries and blind shots combined with extensive tall rough make this an extremely difficult course.

Great course and better value
Course was in great condition, however there we a lot of ball marks and spike marks that were not repaired on the greens. Overall, this is a great course. Definitely in my top 5 in San Antonio.

With all the rain we have been getter my over the last month I thought it may be a little rough. The course was in excellent shape all throughout. Well done to the grounds keepers!

Plays on the early AM and pace of play was good. That is until I hit the 14th fairway and there were kids all over the fairway. Not sure why they were there. Probably some golf school. Anyway, I played thru them, then hit another group on 15. Afraid I was going to hit them because they did not move. On 16 the kids just stood on the middle of the fairway and did not let me play thru. Skipped the hole and went on. Too bad this happenedd because up" til then, it was a really enjoyable round. I would play here again, but only if the kids were not on the course.
