Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Beautiful south Texas Course
Very enjoyable course. Zoisia fairways were in great shape and make for a challenging second cut. Greens very hard and fast, but large to accommodate. Course is pretty and makes you feel like you are out in the country (because you are). Sand traps were unplayable but likely due to the amount of heavy rains San Antonio has experienced recently.
Nice layout, but rough is very overgrown
Great straightforward layout, facilities very nice, friendly staff. Fairways in great shape, greens very firm, but speed is perfect. Rough is way overgrown, even fairway first cut. Lost 2-3 balls just off the fairway. Bunkers still need work. Pace was a bit slow on front 9, backed up 3 groups on several holes. Never saw a marshal. Overall a very good layout, and lower green fees more in line with comparable courses. Definitely a course worth playing.
Disappointing course conditions
Course has the obvious appearance of neglect and poor maintenance. Have played it for years and it is currently in the worst shape since reopening in 2015. Traps were hard packed sand & rock, and had lots of weeds growing in them which indicates they have not been maintained for many weeks or months. The grass on the greens was sparse, yellowish, dead, with bare spots in many places, Looks like a severe of lack of water, aerification & maintenance. The rough is way too thick and high, forcing you to spend a lot of time looking for your ball, thus slowing down play considerably. Many places of knee high rough along and in fairways. Noticed lots of dried grass clippings & "hay' piled up in places indicating lack of timely mowing, Severe lack of drinking water available on the course. No beverage cart service and only one water jug out on the course, other than the one at #1 tee box. The jug out on the course ran out of water when I stopped there about 4:00 PM. They used to have ice chests filled with iced down water bottles....what happened to that? this is August in Texas! Overall, a very disappointing experience and I strongly felt like I certainly did not get value for my money. Pace of play was "excellent" but a two edged sword, because no one was out there! If they do not turn this thing around soon, they will loose it like before and become history.
Course is in excellent condition even with temperature well over 100 degrees the past few weeks. Green fast and fair and fairways green and cut short. Worth the time and drive to play Golf club of Texas soon.
Overall the course was in decent condition, with a couple of serious exceptions. The sand traps are in horrible shape. Partly is because of the recent rain, but that’s not the only issue. Several are overgrown with weeds and grass, and borders on most of them are really bad. On some of the traps the protective plastic is sticking out! The next thing is the maintenance of the rough. Seems they recently got mowed, but a ton of grass clippings all over the edges. Idk what is going on with their maintenance team, but there seem to be some serious maintenance issues. The worst part is that they have increased the price and gotten rid of some nice perks recently.
Great layout. The bunkers were unplayable. No cart girl. Only two places for water. The greens were hard as a turtle’s back. Can see potential, but not today.
Golf Club of Texas ...a hidden gem
Have played this course for years before and after renovations and I can honestly say it's in fantastic shape now. Fairways are no longer dry from summer heat and green speeds are true. Glad to see this great track is back on course for the locals/or tourists. GCofTX offers wide open fairways for novice golfers as well as some challenging and tight 3s and shapely 5s for experienced amateurs as well. Enjoy a few picturesque holes as well as a launcher over the water. Great value!!
needs better directions to course street name not accurate can be marked better. staff was great. pace of play was good. course was well designed for all skill levels.
This course from the moment that you pull up alongside it is very scenic. The staff that greeted me was very friendly. The driving range could use some work. The course has a very good layout. The course and the greens are very fast due to the dry nature. It gives you several challenging looks. Watch for a rattler on 12, in line with starters review. It was a very good time for the amount paid. Met some really nice people. It was a great time overall.
I know the course is trying.but they need to gix the bunkers .forget the new golf carts.the carts you have are just fine .other than that! This is a awsome course to play.go play it .
