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 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.

The Golf Club of Texas is far from what it could be. There is a ton of potential in the course, it’s layout and the club house but it just doesn’t come close.

I’ve played 18 holes out there several times looking for some improvement in the greens and fairways. It just hasn’t happened. The Greens are hard, fast and won’t hold an approach or pitch. I won’t be heading out there again.

Nice course. Well maintained. Greens are in good shape and the course can be as challenging as you need it to be based on your tee box.

Only negative is the bunkers. Ive seen less rocks in a gravel pit. Not sure why this is but it wouldn’t stop me from coming here again or recommending it to others.

Burgers are quite tasty, also.

The course is in good shape, especially the greens. They were fast and rolled true. The bunkers were horrible. No sand. Instead, they had mud and rocks. Could not even play out of the bunkers. I was a little disappointed with everything else. Before the round, I bought some beer from the bar area. A little pricey, and they don't even have coolers to give you to put on the cart. Instead, they give you a plastic bag with ice, which melts all over the cart. Kind of hard to believe they don't have coolers. Anyway, there is not much drinking water available on the course. At one of the water coolers, there were no cups available. After hitting my approach shot to the first hole, I wanted to repair the divot. There were two bottles on the carts that are supposed to have sand to repair the divots, but neither bottle had sand. Finally, there are very few trash cans on the course to throw away your trash. We had to keep all of our trash in the cart until the end of the round. Finally, don't use the GPS device they have on the cart unless you want to be bombarded with ads. You constantly have to keep tapping the screen to get rid of the ads so you can see your distance. This was really annoying. This course has a lot of issues they need to fix.

Played the Golf Club of Texas last year and decided to return. One year seemingly made a big difference in the course. I do not remember the bunkers looking so poorly, but most were rock pits from what I could tell. Played an evening round and pretty much had the course to myself. The Zoysia fairways seem more like regular grass than normal fairways to me. I’d think normal Bermuda would’ve been nicer honestly. Weed patches are beginning to come up in places that do not look aesthetically pleasing. Greens rolled decently quick but seemed very inconsistent. The course layout is great, variety of holes with the back nine being the better of the two. Par 5s are extremely well designed. Greens are huge so choose the right club if playing. Walking this course would be easy after getting to the first hole. All in all, a nice value round of golf if you need to hit balls and work on your game. With some work or maybe different turf choices I believe this could be one of the better designs around town. Wouldn’t recommend making a special trip, but if around the area and need some good practice in, this is a course for you.

I have been playing this course every weekend for the last year and the management of the course has steadily declined. This last weekend was the last straw. Other courses from now on for me. The staff was not accommodating to the golfers, tee times not honored and seemingly the easiest thing, water was not available on the course. There was one bucket that had water, but no cups to be found anywhere. Not even one single ball washer anywhere. Snack bar staff was even worse, couldn’t even get a drink at the turn. Had to wait ten minutes to pay for my bottled drink and finally had to put it back in the cooler and head back to # 10 so as not to hold up the group behind. Staff didn’t care. Poor management in my book.

Although the golf course was fun to play, I have to downgrade my overall rating due to the POOR SERVICE in the Bar/Restaurant area AGAIN. We waited 35 minutes to get served and I finally had to go to the bar to get drinks and order an appetizer. This is an on-going issue with this club and it needs to be fixed. The food manager and waitress staff need to understand that good service pays off, and lousy service such as this over an extended period of time detracts golfers from wanting to come back to play and relax after the round. This is the fourth straight visit to this course with the same lousy service. The club Manager needs to take corrective action to see that patrons are served in an appropriate time.
