The best testament one can give The Golf Club of Texas (formerly known as The Golf Club of Texas at Briggs Ranch) is that it hosts some big local tournaments.  The large greens and tee boxes are some of the very best San Antonio has to offer.  This is truly a high end facility. If you have not been out to enjoy this course you really need to.  The place is all greened up and with the unique landscaping it's just a real pretty experience with great golf.   The golf carts are outfitted with GPS which gives accurate distance to the pin and shows the contours of the greens.  This track combines Links Style golf with Hill Country golf, giving players a taste of both types of golf.  The course is among the best that San Antonio has to offer. The senior staff is very experienced and the service is all that you would expect at a high-value public course.  The new clubhouse is beautiful and features a full service restaurant. After playing a round, you will really enjoy just sitting on the porch and taking in the view.

Directions:  20 Minutes from downtown. Take U.S. 90 west to Texas 211 (2 exits past loop 1604) and we on the right.  From downtown take 90 west to Texas 211.

This course could be so much better

I'll start at the beginning. Pro shop staff is about the worst, unfriendly, disinterested and slow. The starter is the only person (outside of the bar staff) that actually is actually friendly. Oh, and 5 somes on a Sunday morning??? Now for the course. Overall for winter, the course isn't in terrible shape if it weren't for the constant problems with boars digging up the course. Bunkers are a complete joke, even under the best of circumstances, you're hitting out of worked over dirt. Greens roll well (in the mornings) but are so hard that unless you generate a very high shot or one with some spin, you're not holding a green. If you have to pay the full price ($69), play somewhere else. In it's current condition and staff issues, it's really about a $40 course. Bar staff (and food) are very good, which is about the only thing that saves this from being a 1 star reveiw.

Great Layout - Love Zoysia Grass

I don't get to play this course often but love it when I do! The challenging layout makes it fun but fair. Zoysia greens are fun to putt on (line stays true even though a little bumpy right now) Generally, all bunkers are ground under repair.

Attention course management: It seems the course is set up to start on the 10th hole not the 1st. I would think pace of play would be vastly improved by doing so. Especially since the 1st hole fairway is a blind tee shot (from the rear tees). And the back 9 holes have less trouble lining the fairways, Just my 2 cents!

Great Course

We have played this course twice and both times had a great experience. The course is still largely dormant which I usually don't care for, but the grass was in great shape. Greens were starting to grow so they got a little bumpy but true.

We will be back again and again.

Decent Golf Course

Layout is great but the greens are very firm and don't hold. Most greens putt relatively good but a few are bouncy. t's a good course for the money. Staff is good and take care of you for the most part. Girls in the bar and restaurant are friendly and are quick to attend to your food and beverage needs.

staff

Staff was very skeptical that i was indeed the person I was saying I was, which I am. It seemed weird that I had to confirm who I was. I've used GolfNow to get tee times 100's of times all over Texas in the past few years and this is the first time I ever had to confirm without a doubt, who I was.

Nice layout; great price; zoysia greens difficult

The layout of the course, condition of the course, price and people at GC of Texas were very nice. The greens are zoysia grass, and were very inconsistent to read and putt. Balls wouldn't hold their line due to the bumpiness of the greens. Also the greens were not receptive because the greens were very hard. If the problem with the greens were fixed, this would be a fantastic golf course.

Excellent value

This course is great weekday course with a challenging layout, good pace of play this day no one in front of behind tee time 12:30 ish. Only issues were the bunkers which is well documented but not definitely not a deal breaker, and the greens don’t have much bite so play a lot of roll. Good luck!!

Great course but...

I love this course, and the staff but you can’t avoid the seniors in the area and they really hold up play. I understand that most people like to hit from the tips but the senior tees are there for a reason. Why do you want to shoot a 200 from the tips when you could easily be shooting in the 80’s from the senior tees. Not speaking like I’m some amazing golfer, my handicap is in the low 20’s and I tee off accordingly to not hold up play but It’s not uncommon for the seniors to have 2 to 4 cart pile up just waiting to tee off.

Sweet!

I really enjoy this course. It's a tough course if you miss the fairfairways, but the fairways are generous. Love the grass, love the greens, my only bad mark for this course are the bunkers, otherwise I would give it 5 stars. I'm planplanning on getting the Wrangler membership, unlimited golf, range and a monthly comp round at Concan, sweet!

Needs Attention

Fairways extremely over watered(soft and muddy with extreme waste of water resource), greens under watered(hard and crusty)! Sand trap! What sand? Mud holes mostly! This course could use some attention, could be amazing if they really wanted to invest the time. Won’t go back any time soon.
