GOOD VALUE GOLF EXPERIENCE
I'd forgotten that I'd played this course with a group several years ago. It's a pretty good value and conditions are good to very good. I played it on a Sunday morning and the greens were slow and somewhat non-receptive (although in good condition). Had trouble getting the ball to the hole but I'd just been playing in the southeast on 11-12 stimp greens and that could have been a factor. It's a great facility with a friendly staff. And, once you get by the apartments on number 2, no houses really come in to play. Some nice terrain changes, but not severe. Shot just above my handicap (mainly due to putting, as above).

Hilly, up and down variations, tough but fair. A very well thought out course.
I played this course about 10 years ago and it immediately became one of my favorite U S courses. It has deterioated to some degree but a good spring housecleaning would probably bring it back to, in my opinion, the best course in the San Antonio area and I have played alot of the so-called "primo" courses there.

Excellent golf for what I paid in a very pleasant environment.
Course was set up to play much shorter than advertised. First time here for me in many years. Course has matured a great deal. Collars and fringes around the greens cut very short. I found myself putting the ball even when 10 or 12 feet off the green. I am not a fan of the dye on the greens but it does make for a pretty picture. I will be back.

well known to me, great layout...bunkers undergoing redo and many still unfinished with shallow watered sand despite rennovation starting last summer (new sand too fine? Blowing away?) greens slowest ive seen them, typically 9-11 and true...think i caught them in a transition period? Hoping to find this course up to its potential nxt time

Great lay out
This has always been one of my favorite courses. Accurate iron play is a must. Pin placement can make the course extremely tough, but it always seems to have a good blend of risk & reward.

Great course, needs better marshalling
I like playing this course with the exception of the pace of play. 4h30m is the minimum time you will make it through a round. For someone who comes from out of town to play here, it just takes too long to make it through 18.

Just about par with the cost. Not a top tier course but far from a goat ranch. Fun and challenging course

Great for the money spent
It has been 5 years since I last played this course. It is still in great shape and has matured well. They have done a great job keeping the houses away from the course so you dont feel crowded. Greens were fast and there were a few places in the fairways that were very wet. Stay in the short grass, since the natural areas are non-playable.

I enjoy playing this course very much!!! Fits my game very well.

Slow play on slightly above average course
The course was slightly above average in difficulty and conditioning; however, the pace of play was terrible and the carts drove like an accident waiting to happen. The course played shorter than the card indicated. The greens were above average but fairly flat. Might play the course again but for the slow play. 4 3/4 hour pace of play is too slow. The goal is a 4.5 hour round so I doubt the pace of play is ever appropriate. Never saw a marshall. Cart girl left early; we only saw her once despite specifically asking if she would be around again.

Great condition for February
Fast greens, good fairways, playable rough. Great value and staff is friendly. Longhorns are a pretty sweet touch to te course

Good winter condition ,beautiful coarse, reasonable tight
The staff was very friendly. The only thing I would improve is the marking along the cart path to get from the green to the next tee and back to the club house

Great day on a fine golf course.
I am not sure you will find friendlier people running a golf course - from the gentlemen at the bag drop, in the pro shop, the starter and marshal were all welcoming and terrific. Two Texas longhorns show you the way to the first tee! My friend and I were paired with a terrific couple (Bruce / Jan) and we had a great round. The course was very playable, some tough holes, some nice risk / reward holes. The greens were in excellent shape and for a late February day the overall course was in good shape. I recommend this course.

Excellent course very busy
This course was excellent and always in great shape. We all found it a little slow but it was a beautiful day and lots of golfers were out playing

The course was in good shape for being in winter. Layout is challenging and playable at the same time. The blind drive on #2 requires you to drive forward to see the best landing spot/line.

Fun course to play
Lots of blind shots and challenging pin placement made for a great day of golf. It was busy but we got out a little early. Pace was slow and we had to wait at almost every tee box.

Great Course! ... Great Value!
I have played this course over a dozen times in the last year. It is always well maintained, and the staff is excellent. The greens are bent grass which makes for some slippery putts. The course has several unique features with elevated tee boxes, and undulated greens. Course management is a must, as there are fairway bunkers, and thick rough throughout. This course will challenge all levels and the price is right!

Course was challenging but fair. Fairways and greens very good.
The course was challenging but fair. The front nine more so than the back nine. Playing the course for the first time without local knowledge mad the course play more difficult. Sloping fairways and undulating greens made the course challenging. Fairways and greens were in very good condition and the pro shop personnel were very friendly. Also the green fees were reasonably priced.

Great course, Great condition
I love this course! It is always in great condition, the fairways, the bunkers, the greens... There is nothing I don't like about this course. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a nice and challenging course.

Can't wait to play here again!
It forgives you for errant shots but challenges you to get up and down. If your score isn't up to par, then just enjoy the scenery.

The lack of course marshall and starter on the weekend makes pace of play very slow. Should be able to play this course in 4 hours but it took us 5 hours.

The course has some challenging holes espeacially around the greens. Some nice vista along the way.
This was my first time to play at this course. I was teamed up with someone who plays the course often. It was great playing golf with this individual who gave me some good pointers along the way. The staff I came in contact with where all helpful. I came across deer several times while playing that added to the ambiance of a wonderful day of golf in the hill country.

It's always a nice place to get out an play
The course was in good condition. Pace of play was excellant

Great course for a nice challenging day.
We had an excellent time here. Initially it seemed as if it would be packed but once we got through 3 it was like having the course to ourselves. The pace was perfect for our foursome. Course in great shape and has some fun yet challenging holes. The staff was excellent. Our only critique was that the driving range was so crowded we couldn't warm up before heading out.

This is a very fun Texas Hill Country Course--challenging but fair with lots of very interesting holes. Even in winter the greens roll well and true. Some of the holes are reminiscent of Scottish links courses, with gorse-like rough. I was surprised that the starter sent us out as a fivesome. That contributed to the slower pace of play, no doubt.
January 28, 2013
Very slow, greens were brown and unfriendly staff!
The greens were brown due to not overseeding and saving money, the pace of play was very slow, as there were no marshalls on the course. Once I made the turn, I found that the pro shop had allowed multiple groups to go off the back making my second nine go even slower than the front nine. Last, people who live along the course are alloweed to hit shots on the course and parage around it like it was a park. Many times I was delayed to keep from possibly hitting someone that had crossed my line of pllay. It was a waste of my money!

Decent weekend winter price and course conditions
Not bad for cold winter conditions - 30 min frost delay. Many pins were in silly positions- but may have been on high spots after a previous rain.

This course is one of the best in San Antonio
This course was in very good shape even for the winter time. The greens roll true and are hard to read. From the tips there are some drivable par 4s and then par 4s with long irons to the green after a long drive. I play this course more often than any other in San Antonio. Great value each time I play.

Really great course
This course is awesome, it's in great condition considering the time of year. Greens are in good shape and roll true. Fairways are greenish, mostly yellow, but still feel like fairways; rather than hard packed dirt covered with patches of grass. The club house and other facilities are top notch, and offer no distraction to players on the course. I completely recommend this course; it offers multiple challenges for all types of players and is an absolute steal through GolfNow.com.
