About

Slope 132
Rating 73.9
Type Private
Located in Boerne, Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club offers two 18-hole courses that are just minutes away from San Antonio. With a rolling landscape provided by the scenic Hill Country, the Live Oak Course at Fair Oaks Ranch is named after the towering, mature trees that are spread across its hilly terrain. There are large, undulating greens and trees strategically lining the narrow fairways. Ponds and creeks come into play on a few holes and there are numerous strategically placed bunkers. Although the course demands accuracy, it is considered the less difficult of the two golf courses at Fair Oaks Ranch.

Just the Facts

This is a nice enough course, we played the Live Oak course only. It was our first time to play here, so we asked about where the driving range was located, where we would begin, and also if there was a starter there. Our questions were answered, and off we went. There was no mention that the driving range was closed. So, no warmup before playing. When we were sent on our way, we (party of two) were told the five -some in front of us were regulars who bet on their games. So, we were behind this group, waiting for 17 holes, when one had to return to the tee to hit again and we were in his way. THEN, we were allowed to play through, which was ridiculous at this point of the game. We were also told at one point during the day (loudly across the cart path from someone on the other side) that we (golf cart) were in a place that had been re-sodded(ground under repair) and shouldn’t be driving there. There was no sign or rope indicating(ground under repair) this, and since we had never been there, it was rude to expect people to know it. All in all, an enjoyable day, just have to overlook some people’s rude behavior.

A Wet Round, But Enjoyed It

Played the course while visiting in the area. Pretty wet day, but we stuck it out for all 18. Good layout - interesting and enjoyable. We had been told that bunkers were under renovation, but the project hasn't start yet. Course in excellent condition. Recommend if in the area.
