Vaaler Creek Golf Club
Conveniently located near downtown San Antonio not too far from Austin, Vaaler Creek Golf Club has a memorable layout of gently rolling hills dotted with creeks, ponds and lakes. The course begins with a challenging front nine and then eases up a bit on the back nine, but overall it is a formidable test. The greens are tricky and demanding, especially on the front nine where there are some severe slopes and undulations. The back nine greens are a bit flatter but they still require careful attention. The rolling, contoured fairways are lined with trees and there are deep bunkers strategically guarding the greens, but luckily there are only seventeen of them. Water hazards come into play throughout and there are also several doglegs and blind shots if there wasn’t enough to keep you on your toes.

Just a great golf course
This is a beautiful yet challenging course. The greens tend to have significant slope but they are fair. This course rewards you for strategically place drives off the tee. That means leaving the driver in the bag on some holes. This is an overall great value and fun course.
Drop Zones Needed
Holes 2, 9, 12, and 18 need drop areas for balls hit into the water. Those holes are beasts (too hard) for anyone but low handicappers. Number 2 demands a drop area.
The course is supposed to be fun for older retirees that want to play often.
The course is extremely well maintained and very picturesque.
Golf Now cheated Me !
Course was fine but I had a $20 discount code for Hot Deals and you would not honor it when I booked ....
Seems like every time I want to use any of your discounts there is some catch to cheat me out of It !
Overall Very Pleased! Will Be Back!
The layouts on every hole make this course very fun. Each hole has a little twist and can be challenging to the beginner/ average golfer. The greens were in admirable shape for being November, and they overseeded the fairways to compensate for the colder weather ahead! I will definitely be back for another round out at Vaaler Creek!
Course maybe play again, Golf now never again!
Course is nice but over priced in my opinion. $72+tax for a Weekend round is the regular rate and that is a bit much . Golfnow hot rate is $69.50 after all the fees. One buddy got hurt the night before and he couldn’t even play still cost $69 bucks. I get it it hot deal, but not worthy $9 Saving for the risk, I wont use golf now again, just book straight with any course.

Love this course, great lay out and challenging, greens were not as fast usual but smooth
This is one of the best courses in south Texas. Great layout and staff. It is worth the drive from San Antonio.
Unfortunately for us they had just punched and sanded the greens. But you can tell this place is well maintained. The course presented a good challenge but still was forgiving. The greens have so much character and we can’t wait to try them again in a month or so. Try this place out. You won’t be disappointed.
Golfnow should alert consumers of course maintenance

Best in TX!
The course is in amazing shape in the middle of Texas summer. The staff is very friendly and professional. The price for this course is unbelievable! A course of this quality in San Antonio or Austin, would be triple the price!
Hill Country Excellence
Vaaler Creek is one of the best golf courses I’ve ever played. Every hole is very unique and the course is always in great condition. It’s about 40-45 miles from San Antonio and 100% worth the drive.
Did Not Disappoint
After wanting to play this course for several years it did not disappoint. Got a great deal on GolfNow and drove the hour from my house in Kyle with great anticipation. Upon arrival the golf shop girl was very friendly and pointed me in the right directions for cold water, 1st tee, etc. The starter was also very friendly and helpful. Pace of play was good. I started out as a single but another single who teed off behind me joined up and then later we joined another single who teed off before me. So we had a leisurely threesome for the last few holes. A few of the tee boxes were a little rough and most were "domed" a bit, so getting a level stance was problematic at times. Hugh greens and in very good condition. GPS were on carts and made it easier for a first timer. Just one real negative, the location of the range. I'm sure this is out of necessity because of the layout of the neighborhood, but I saw signs pointing to the range but never actually saw it while driving the course and the grounds. So I can't review that amenity since I never visited it. Nice practice chipping and putting green though, right beside the golf shop. Very positive experience overall and will definitely return!
Course was in great shape. Scenic layout that is challenging but fair. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Highly recommended.
Worth the trip!
Vaaler Creek is a great "off the beaten path" course that is worth the trip. Conditions are always good to excellent. The past few years they have over-seeded in the winter, so you can still play a green course in January.
