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.

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.

Bad traps

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.

First timer

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!!
