Reviewed on

There are two 18 hole golf courses at Fort Sam.<br/> The original 18 was created by A.W.Tillinghast, an iconic golf course architect in 1929,<br/> In 1937 the only PGA event ever played on a US military installation was here at the Texas Open. Sam Snead and Palmer have played here.<br/> In mid 1976 the original 18 holes were divided between the two new revamped courses. Kevin Tucker Design Group handled the redesign.<br/> Las Lomas includes holes 1 through 10 from the old course, and Salado Del Rio includes hole #1 and 13 to 18 of the 1929 design.<br/> We played the Salado del Rio course on a Saturday AM.<br/> The greens and fairways are as good as any in town. The putting surface was a thick green carpet and rolled straight.<br/> This course wind among a forest of huge trees. Trees play an important part in so many green approaches, this can be areal challenge.<br/> There are creeks throughout these fairways and lots of<br/> hidden lakes to catch the errant golf shot.<br/> There's a big practice facility here. The placement of drinking water stations and bathrooms is about the best in the area.<br/> Salado del Rio has scenic views, a tricky parkland layout,<br/> great playing conditions, and good pace of play.<br/> Fort Sam Houston golf is a fine golfing experience in San Antonio. It's heads above the local municipal courses.
