Type Public
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.

Very Nice Hill Country Course

A very nice hill country course with very smooth greens. Stay in the fairway and you’ll be good, rough was tough. Played cart path only due to recent rain. Definitely a course to play.

Great Hill Country Course

Always a treat to play this course. It is a true Hill Country Course, cut into the hills with many twists and turns. Every hole different and challenging. Greens difficult but well maintained. Gets better every time we play it.

Beautiful course but GPS and markers not in line or wrong.

GPS and ground markers not same. Makes playing very confusing and while course is beautiful since distances are not sound makes experience distasteful. Not recommended for this reason.

A must play course....

Great course, challenging and excellent staff. The greens and fairways were impeccable. As hot as it has been the course was beautiful and green.

There was a twosome in front of us that thought they were pros and were hitting from the tips. I've never waited so long and saw so many trees hit by them. I knew we were in for a long day when on a par 5, one of the guys pulls out his range finder while standing on the tee box to spot the flag 550+ yards away...really you thought you needed to know. Other than that it has been great.

Hidden Gem

Always have a positive experience playing Vaaler Creek. Conditions are always great, although greens were just top dressed the day before but understand that is part of the process. Staff is always friendly and beverage lady, Courtney, makes rounds very frequently! Look forward to my next visit!

Where's the water?

Overall this was a fun golfing experience. the course is very nice, with the exception of a few holes where the water features/hazards were either under repair or had just been neglected to the point where weeds had started growing in those areas. Also, please don't torture us by having that nice swimming pool on the premises & then not letting us cool off after a round! It was over 100 degrees when we played, and we could have used a cool down that day, especially since there was only 2 people in the pool. I will be playing there again though.

Course is in excellent shape. Fun layout and friendly staff. Only drawback was pace of play due to a slow foursome and no marshaling.
