Excellent course for all levels of players
Excellent course, recommend playing from the right tee boxes if its your first time. The greens are in excellent conditions, but they roll at a pace that if you are not careful you could putt off the green. They are new greens, if you attack the greens you could find your ball over the greens on the back. Overall I look forward to playing there again. I play the Palmer course in the past, but enjoyed this course much better. By the way, I shot a 88 after three putting five greens.
Another good round
Wouldn’t change a thing. Go in early for breakfast and stay late for drinks. Great menu and happy hour specials
Great but very challenging green
The course is in excellent shape my only issue was the green were perfect but my reading and putting did not measure up. I love this course a must play when in San Antonio.
Wonderful course, yet humbleing!
The 4 Amigos gathered for our first go at LaCantera resort course. What a beautiful layout, and the staff and ammenities are top shelf! Send mama to the spa, pack the ice chest, get the camera, and tee it up!
From the moment we dropped our arsenal of overly expensive and overly analyzed clubs for this type of course, we were met by the friendliest staff from check in to the 19th hole. The starter met us on the practice green and gave us all the course tips you could ask for if you were a first time victim of this course. The tee to green conditions were excellent, and the greens were excellent, running 12 downhill and 10.5 uphill. There lies the delimma!! Figuring that out!
We're pretty good golfers, but take a word of advice. Walk around your putt!!! Maybe it's the recent possibility of shifting magnetic north and south poles, but there were a LOT of 3 putts! By the 10th hole, we were lag putting 15 footers! Maybe it was the bloody Mary's? If you plan to play again, take notes on the greens!
Overall, it was a wonderful day, and can't wait to play La Cantera resort course again! I know I left 10 strokes in the greens, and I'm going back to claim my 75!
We played in January, and course conditions were very good. I can only imagine playing this course when its plush and in pristine condition! Don't pass this course up!
Thanks to everyone at La Cantera. It was a great day!
Great Round of Golf.."BUT"
Course was in great shape for this time of year. Greens are lightning fast but track very true!
Was very surprised they let us go so early with a MAJOR frost problem! All the holes from 1-4 had ice on the flagstick and frozen grass all around! Once in the sunshine it was very good shape! Love the Bermuda greens rolled and painted green.!
Sand traps in excellent shape and raked to perfection. Just had to try out a few to many of them!
Excellent staff and great breakfast. Great time for the price in the winter!
The course is in great shape.
Nothing bad to say about this course. Had a great time. The greens are true, fairways are in great shape.
We played in the rain and drizzel. Course stayed playable throughout round. Excellent drainage. Tge new greens were fast and firm. They rolled true and were a good challenge. I will definitely play again when next in san Antonio.
Great resort course
Very friendly staff. Many tee box choices to match your skill set. We saw deer and turkeys during our round.
One of the very best golf courses in Texas. Pristine conditions. Interesting layout. Greens were fast, smooth and undulating. Look forward to a return.
Overall an overall good course, but not worth $100+ a round.
Without the Hot Deal I probably wouldn't play the course again. It just isn't worth $100+ for each round. The layout is interesting and fun, the greens are challenging to putt and your approach needs to be near the flag. The greens were in overall good condition, however the fringe and short grass around the greens needed work. They don't even verticut cut around the edge or keep the weeds under control. In one instance I was forced to putt over a poorly repaired sod repair on the green that wasn't marked GUR. The fairways are fairly consistent with a few sparse places. The views are nice and the best part of the course. Having the GPS in the cart surely helps as distance control is important off the tee. Overall a decent and interesting course that allows for low rounds provided your approach to the green is working that day. I would play maybe once or twice a year at the maximum. Without the Hot Deal I would probably go elsewhere.
Course was in great condition. Greens were fast but they were consistent. Great views from a couple of the higher tee boxes.
Love the Resort Course!
The Resort course this past Saturday was my 2nd time playing it and it was fantastic again! The greens were a very good speed, probably running somewhere around 10-11, which is great in south Texas in the summer. Too many courses leave their greens far too long to protect against burnout. The pin placements were a bit suspect but overall it was a great day at La Cantera!
Enjoyable, challenging course layout
We simply had a great round. Not so much score wise, but the overall professionalism from the bag drop greeter to the the fairway maintanence employee (who actually applauded my playing partner on a particularially difficult shot), each person we met was very respectful of our time and either shut down a lawn mower or stopped their cart when we attempted a shot. I personally have played some higher end courses whose employees seemed to care more about getting through the rough with their mower than the patron who is actually there trying to enjoy their round. Thanks ever so much for the enjoyable time.
Course was worth every penny! Plaenty of challenging holes that required some thought to your shots.
Will definitely come back to play again!
Hot day at the Resort Course...
I've played the Resort Course countless times as a SA resident but figured its time for a 2018 mid-season review. With the course shut down nearly all fall of 2017 and parts of this year I have been expecting at some point for this course to return to glory. Unfortunately, for the price-tag the Resort Course still leaves much to be desired. The greens currently are shaggy and at the same time burned out in places. Collars on the greens are not being maintained it seems. Fairways are fair. Cartpaths still have giant curbs most of the way and nearly break your carts axel getting on and off the course (make sure your head covers are on the woods or you'll be scratching those guys up!). Additionally, the patrons of the course seem to be just as rough around the edges these days. In the last couple outings at the Resort Course I've seen golfers with jeans on, shirts untucked and a guy so drunk he was doing "sand angels" in a bunker. Today, I didn't witness anything crazy but felt it needs to be said for a course that is suppose to be one of the prestigious ones in the city. Anyway, in my mind the course will always be a great layout and will always provide a "good round" with nice views of the city with resort level amenities. The staff outside at the bag drop and marshalls were great - 10/10 jobs! The pro-shop guys/gals could provide more of greeting and honestly should be upselling merchandise (nobody has said anything about replay specials, new hats/gloves/clothes etc. in any of the last ~10 rounds or so at the resort). Every course across the country needs to increase revenue - if you can't get more rounds in you better be selling stuff out of the shop! All in all, I do love this place and just want it to be the best it can be!
