Olympia Hills Golf Course is very exciting and enhances San Antonio's reputation as a golf destination. A unique combination of natural topography and man-made mounds and bunkers make this a super course. Native South Texas vegetation and golf course grass seed formulations on fairways and greens will provide state-of-the-game playing surfaces. The views are spectacular, with several holes playing to greens well below the tees, while other lead to a significant rise to reach the putting surface. Fairways, which on some holes are tight, are often sloped and guarded by bunkers. The tips will not be played by the faint hearted, but with four sets of tee boxes, the course can be enjoyed by all levels of players.

Where's my cart?

Called pro shop to let them know my cart was dying. Never brought replacement. Had to ride with player I was paired with. Other than that, fun day.

Olympia Hills?

Called ahead of time and no one told us the bridge was under construction or that the greens had been recently sanded and areated. No adequate signage to re-direct you to the practice range since the bridge was closed. I feel like they should have discounted the rate until things get back to normal.

Great mixture

This was our first playing this course. There was good mixture of easy and difficult holes to play. This is more on my golf course rotation. Will definitely be back.

Getting better

I play in SA 1-2 times per week.
Olympia is a challenging test and compared to 6 months ago, have really made nice improvements with the condition of their greens.

Tee boxes and fairways are a grade C and need improvement. Bunkers are a D, but considering COVID and other courses, understandable.

Great value

Greens were great, fairways were good, layout is great! Challenging yet easy course. Not long at all. Suits most handicappers. Nice elevation changing holes! I like the mini GPS in the carts & they ride very smooth. Only complaint I have is most of the tee boxes are terrible, not much grass & they’re extremely hard. But for the value, hard to beat. Boone was accommodate my tee time mistake as well. Definitely coming back again soon.

Olympia Hills - Excellent Condition

Played Olympia Hills yesterday, Aug 14, 2020 and the course was in excellent shape. Haven't been out there in a while, and decided to play because I've always enjoyed the course, the staff, and the location. Very easy to get to you from work.

Will definitely play there again very soon.

Staff unfriendly made it seem like it was a chore to be there doing their job

Severely disappointed. First off took my cart which cost over 25 dollars to rent back cause it was having problems and the cart guy thought he would argue with me about it and was very rude. Guy should not be in the face of guests if his job washing carts is so hard. FYI I do the same thing at an area golf course and would never talk to a guest the way he did.

Cart ran out of battery on the 12th hole. Took them 20 minutes for someone to come out to get me. Took 1 and a half hours to play 16-18. Course was in bad shape

Course is tight but not long- the fairways and greens were in great shape, especially for Late July. Very friendly and well organized staff, considering COVID rearrangements.

Good course, poor pace of play

Haven't played Olympia Hills for a few years. I had forgotten how good of a layout it was. Unfortunately, the pace of play was very poor. After 12 holes, we quit. Got to the 12th tee box, a par 3, and there was a group on the green, a group waiting to hit, and us. We were already on a 4.5 hour pace and were now looking at a 5+ hour round in 100+ degree heat. Never saw a marshal. A round should only take 3.5-4 hours. There is no excuse for a 5 hour round. I don't recommend courses that don't monitor pace of play and keep rounds down to a reasonable time.
