La Cantera Hill Country Resort's Palmer Course tops Power Rankings for the week of Sept. 1

Texas is back on top of Power Rankings. San Antonio's La Cantera Hill Country Resort's Palmer Course, a past winner of Power Rankings, is back on top.

The Palmer Course makes up one half of 36-hole La Cantera Hill Country Resort, which underwent a huge renovation this winter . While the courses remain managed by Troon Golf, the hotel property switched from Starwood to Destination Hotels.

Reviewer Robert8452220 filed a couple photos in his five-star review, and wrote this:

"The Palmer Course at LaCantera Resort is the most beautiful course in San Antonio," he wrote . "It feels like you are on top of the world on some holes and it has the views to prove it. The course was in fantastic shape, smooth greens, and lots of rough."

So on a week where The King himself is having a birthday (Sept. 10th), it's only fitting we toast one of his firm's designs.

Also in San Antonio golf news, the Golf Club of Texas has reopened this summer after over a year under the knife. The course was one of the most actively reviewed courses of the week, so be sure to check out what golfers have to say about the total makeover.
