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.

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.

Typically, a fun place with a friendly staff. It's a great value with Hill Country terrain. The place is well managed with above average kitchen and bar area. Our 4some plays GCT as often as possible.

There are a couple of challenging holes. The course is in good shape and the greens receptive. They are replacing all the course signage so you need to keep an eye out a few times when the cart paths cross. Friendly staff. Will play this one again, hopefully with less wind.

This course is a fun course has a kinks feel with how open it is. The zoysia creates nice lies in the fairways but can be bouncy to putt on. All in all for it almost being spring course was in good shape. Greens don’t receive spin well so club down and let the ball release to the pin

Course was wide open with very large greens. Biggest problem was there was very little sand in the traps. It was impossible to get your wedge under the ball.

Overal we enjoyed the course and day. Our only concerns were lack of sand in the green side bunkers and slow play. ( 5 hour round, we called after 6 holes, but nothing changed). The greens and fairways are very good. The layout was fun and staff friendly. Thank you for a good day.

A very nice layout with super quick greens and well maintained grounds in general. Staff extremely helpful (the starter Doc gave us a great overview of the course and some scoring hints). Pace of play was great. Would love to play here again.
