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.

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.

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.

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.

This review is for this one time, although I have played this coarse several times. I know that this is the time of year the greens get punched but the condition of the greens were less than average, the greens appear to have rows in them as if it was a garden and the ball did not roll it bounced across the green. Since I had booked this round on GolfNow I had no way of knowing the greens were in bad condition until I walked up to the first green.

In all fairness Hyatt Resort is a great place but I would wait a couple of months before I play their Golf Course

The course (Lakes & Creeks) was in rough shape. Just about all of the tee boxes were poor, mostly sand- definitely not much grass nor much green. The greens were aerated two weeks ago and they were not good. The ball hopped all over the place and just didn't roll true. It was hot and only one cooler had water in it.

This course is not usually like this, I hope it is not a trend. Pro shop, starter and cart ladies were all very nice.

Great course in great condition. Aaron the starter is a landmark there. I think on really hot days, they could add more... like small towels in the carts, perhaps cold wash clothes with the beverage cart. I know. Getting spoiled. But the course was exceptional. Greens were fast and true
