La Cantera Resort is home to two 18-hole, championship courses that wind through Texas Hill Country. The Resort Course opened in 1995, when it also hosted one of the oldest PGA Tour events, the Texas Open. It is no wonder the spot was chosen, with its numerous natural water features, mature oaks, and limestone rock outcroppings it provides the perfect terrain for a challenging round. There are also 75 white sand bunkers strategically placed throughout the golf course. In combination with the spectacular views provided by the course’s elevation changes, the course has quickly gained favor as one of the best public-access golf courses in the country.

Great course on a hot day

Course is really nice. Greens in great shape. The rough is very thick so stay in the fairways. We really enjoyed our time. And the people working there is extremely friendly and welcoming.

Great course

Great course. Enjoyed the layout and the course was in very good condition. Tee times were spaced 20 minutes apart which helped the pace. Golf staff were very mindful of social distancing and disinfection requirements. Overall, very pleased.

Resort Golf at its Best

First time to play this scenic golf course. Beautifully designed up and down the Hill Country of Texas. Signature hole overlooking Fiesta Texas is stunning, but so are others.. Bring your ‘A’ game and keep the ball in the fairway. Greens are huge with undulations and levels. Important to play from the right tee box to enjoy the round.. A wonderful golf experience. Can’t wait to play it again.

Top 5 course I have ever played

This was a really impressive course with amazing views, elevation changes throughout the course, perfect conditions, and an awesome layout with fun shots and risk reward shots. Thanks for the experience and we will be back. Also played hill country Hyatt and it was in terrible shape and doesn’t hold a candle to la cantera.

Other then the fact we played with a group that ruined our round, it was a great golf course. These guys yelled, screamed, cussed and lashed out extremely loud and ugly to the point where we couldn’t enjoy it. I wanted to leave but we paid good money to play there.

Hole in one

This course was amazing. Top five in southern Texas for sure, can’t wait to come back and shoot low. Would definitely recommend to anyone that can really play. La Cantera is also a love place to hold benefits or bring that important client. Have fun guys and girls.

Fantastic Day at La Cantera

The course was in pristine condition, and was empty. We never saw another group the entire round. This is a challenging and rewarding course, with lots of elevation change and natural features. It was definitely worth it for the 42 price offer they were running. Had a blast!

Resort fun

More enjoyable of the two La Cantera courses. Not as many blind shots. Greens are tricky. Staff is friendly. Conditions are always good. Always a good choice for a solid round of golf. Enjoy.

Hill Country best

The La Cabrera’s Resort course is one of the hill country’s best. I like this one better than the Palmer. It plays a few shots easier in my opinion. Greens are fast and fun. Being in the right spot is a must to score well. Go play and enjoy.

Firm. Fast. One of the best.

Played on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The greens were firmed up a bit (perfect) and extremely fast. With the slopes, a two putt here is a very good thing. If playing soon, most tees are generally moved up a box, so play back one set. Gold/silver will suffice for most. Try to be cognizant that many greens are multiple tiered. So getting the right tier is of utmost importance if trying to score well. Go play and enjoy, one of the best in San Antonio.
