Type Resort
The majestic, rolling hills and towering oaks of the scenic Texas Hill Country serve as a backdrop to the Flying L Guest Ranch Golf Course & Resort. The course begins with a challenging front nine with numerous doglegs and uneven lies at every turn. The signature hole, the par-3 seventh, features a green that is surrounded by water on three sides and a spectacular view of the mountains. Flying L Guest Ranch Golf Course & Resort's back nine is less challenging than the front nine, but it has a few interesting surprises in store. It has a more classic and open layout than the front nine, but there are four holes with water and several strategically placed bunkers to watch out for. Flying L also features a two-tiered driving range with a chipping and putting green.

Handicap 12

Great pace of play and not difficult for a beginner. The course was in fairly good condition considering the winter months... Greens need to be tended to.... Overall a pleasant environment and terrific price.... I will be back at that rate and hopefully better weather will make this course very promising....

The old Flying L is back

This is the best that the course has looked in quite a while. The greens were very smooth and fairly quick, especially downhill. We did not have to bump our balls in the fairways as the lies were really good. Also, the rough has been mowed so no problem finding balls in it. Got a great rate on Golfnow but their regular prices are a great value too. Added bonus for a Helotes resident like me was it's such a relaxing drive to and from the course vs some of the San Antonio courses.

If should be the Lying L

The round I booked at the flying L resort was a horrible experience 1. The person in the pro shop was not inviting didn't say good morning, hello or anything like that other than " i'm not a mind reader" which i thought was very disrespectful. Then he goes into this diatribe about " there's a chance of rain & if it rains we don't give rain checks, what course does that???? , 2. The course was terrible brown not green at all with dead patches on the course, 3 . i wish i could ask for a refund because of the bad service. Thank you for you attention to this matter.

Greens are back

Several months ago they almost lost their greens. They were horrible. But thanks to the diligent work of their pro and the greenskeeper they have the greens rolling great again.
