The 27-hole Hyatt Hill Country Golf Club is not only one of the finest golf courses in San Antonio, it is also one of the premier tracks in all of Texas. Although the upscale course is a chief amenity of the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, you don t have to stay at the resort to schedule a tee time. Legendary golf architect Arthur Hills designed the original 18 of the Hill Country Golf Club in 1983 and then added nine more holes in 2005. World Golf Awards once named the playing field Texas s Best Golf Course, and in recent years the club has been a fixture on Golf Advisor s list of the Top Courses in Texas. Though Hills s layout is conveniently close to the city, it offers a delightful get-away-from-it-all ambiance as it rambles over 200 acres of diverse terrain that ranges from links-style rolling-meadows and lush hillsides to tree-shaded plateaus and tranquil lakes and ponds. Compared to many other Hill Country layouts that feature more dramatic, up-and-down terrain, Hill Country Golf Club occupies much gentler ground. Everyone should be able to handle the challenge of the course, as Hills created a player-friendly, resort-style test. In addition to the four regulation sets of tee markers that stretch the layout from 4,939 yards to 6,931 yards, Hill Country Golf Club also offers two significantly shorter family sets of tees. All three nines of the Hill Country Golf Club blend in well together, but they present distinctly different playing characters. The tough and narrow, heavily wooded Oaks nine is all about placement. The Lakes nine, which features a couple of lakes, is the most scenic of the three nines, while the Creeks nine is the longest and most wide-open test. If you miss the wide fairways on any of these layouts, the vegetation gets thick and you can easily lose a ball. Hill Country Golf Club s greens are one of the layout s most impressive features. The large, undulating putting surfaces generally roll pretty quick. Practice facilities include a driving range, chipping area and sand bunker, and putting green. The clubhouse features a full-service pro shop and a tavern restaurant that opens for breakfast and then stays open throughout the day. For added convenience, the onsite Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa offers additional dining options and plenty of activities to go along with luxurious accommodations. Whether you opt to stay overnight or come for the day, make your tee time to play the nicely varied, well-maintained and user-friendly Hill Country Golf Club in San Antonio.
