About

Holes 9
Par 36
Length 3438
Slope 135
Rating 36.6
Type Public/Resort
Hill Country Golf Club offers three nines, all of which sprawl across 200 scenic acres of Texas Hill Country. The terrain is provided with rolling meadows and steep hillsides dotted with tranquil lakes and ponds that come into play throughout the 27 holes. The Oaks Nine is named for the towering oaks that blanket the course. From wooded ravines to tree-lined fairways, this nine is a demanding test of accuracy. There are strategically placed bunkers and water comes into play on a few holes. The courses, which were designed by well-known architectural firm Arthur Hill & Associates, have received praise from both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine.

Always in great condition

The course is always in exceptional condition. I played it the day after a very heavy storm and rain. The course has great drainage. We were off the cart path by around noon. You could see where some of the creeks had overflowed onto the course by the mud residue. Staff was very friendly.

Tight but Fair Track

While staying nearby, I booked a round on this 27 hole complex. The staff was friendly and helpful, and I managed to get off a bit early. Unfortunately there was a large tournament on the course that day, so I had to play the Oaks course twice for my 18. The course is a little tight, with many opportunities to lose a ball if you're not hitting straight. . Tee boxes and fairways were in good shape. The greens were fast and true, but appeared stressed from weather and a bit thin. Playing as a single, I finished in 3hr20min.. Overall a decent choice if all 9's are available.

Winding Through the Trees | The Oaks

The Hyatt Hill Country is built on some of the best land in the San Antonio area. A great deal of trees line the fairways especially on the Oaks nine. The tee shots require great accuracy and strategy in order to find the fairway. On the Oaks course in many cases you have to be on the right side of the fairway to have a shot at green/pin. I love this about that nine and enjoy the challenge of fitting the ball into the right spots. One of my favorites in the city however I will say the greens seem to have been an afterthought. They lack the definition to truly make it a championship golf course. Perhaps it was meant to be a resort course however with greater attention to the shaping of the greens this would be my favorite nine and thus my favorite course in the greater San Antonio area. A must play for those who have not made their way to the Hyatt Hill Country.

Great course

Played Lakes 9 and Oaks 9. Both are a little bit different, lakes are more open than the oaks and the oaks are not so tight that it makes playing impossible. There wasn’t a lot of players on the course and was able to play in 3 hrs and 15 minutes. All around a great day. Greens were a little long no doubt due to the rain but in excellent shape.

Super nice layout. The fairways and greens are in great shape. The staff are very professional. Love playing all three nines. The course should be in great shape after a good rain. Would recommend this course.

Wait a couple weeks to play

I played lakes to creeks for my 18 holes. Greens are still bumpy and sandy from being punched. I’d wait a few weeks to come back and play. I’m not a fan of their bunkers because the sand is grainy and most of them were not even racked after players walked in them. I must have been the only one raking them. Staff was friendly and I was glad to be paired up with cool members to play with. Pace of play was great here too.

My son and I played this course, and thanks to golf now it was reasonable. They had punched and sanded the greens so the greens weren’t perfect. But the experience was great !
