Played at an easy pace and was in good shape.

I was a single but was suppose to play with another twosome. The Starter forgot to include me when he called my group so I played as a single. Made a few groups unhappy to let me play through and would have rather played with the group.

Other than that, it was a nice round on a challenging course

My only issue is that we waited ALL DAY LONG. We played behind an 80 year old man playing by himself while there was a group of 5 women playing ahead of him. It took over 5 hours to complete the round. We were a 2 some that was paired up with another 2 some. Not sure why the group of 5 and group of 1 was allowed.

Course layout is wonderful. But when you pay to have GPS in your cart and there is not any is very upsetting. Not only did I not get my GPS but my cart kept shutting down. Was a very frustrating day and was extremely difficult to consintrate on my golf game. There were ground under repairs everywhere. For the money they charge and for what I received, I possibly would have done just as well at a municipal courses, or better.

The course was great as were the staff. However, the GPS system in the cart was way off on yardage. I always carry my laser yardage finder with me and found yardages were off by thirty yards on some holes. It was less on others, but never quite correct. And we were told by the starter that the yardages were calculated to the pin, not the middle of the green. The other thing that really bugs me about any course is when you finish, guys automatically start cleaning your clubs. They don't ask, they just do it. Then you feel obligated to give them a tip. I don't mind that courses provide this service, I just would appreciate the courtesy of being asked.

This was my wife's and myself's first time to play La Cantera Resort Course. Can't say anything bad at all about the staff, course or layout. Was met with a friendly young man at the bag drop who answered every question my wife threw at him, (impressive) went in the pro shop and the friendliness continued. Warmed up on the range and visited with the starter who gave us a good rundown on what to expect. The course was in good shape. Greens were mid speed. Have absolutely no complaints about the course or the layout. Great views. It would have been a great day had it not been for a Northern blowing through which dopped temps considerably and had wind gusts 25-30mph. Made it difficult. But, still thoroughly enjoyed it and will return.

The whole day was great starting with arrival. The staff was great and all seemed respectively jealous we were getting to go play but excited for us to have the opportunity. The staff was excited and clearly had great pride in their courses history, current state and upcoming future. The course was great and enjoyed every hole in a different way. Great views, elevation changes, fairways, greens and range of playability different tees offered. I appreciated most that each hole was very different and no hole was boring from any since of being repetitive whether it's the first or 100th time you played it.

I had remembered the resort course at La Cantera as being somewhat "easy" (compared to the Palmer course), but I quickly realized that my recollection was wrong. It's a tough course with some challenging holes, but always a good round. Some of the holes have wonderful views of the city and Six Flags. Loved the elevated tee boxes on a number of holes. Will definitely play again!
