The Blackjack Oak Course is one of two courses at Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club. Located in scenic Texas Hill Country, the club is in Boerne, only a few minutes from San Antonio. Both courses feature large, undulating greens and towering trees that line the narrow fairways. The scenic landscape is dotted with ponds and creeks that come into play throughout where golfers can often catch a glimpse of deer and other wildlife. The rolling terrain and abundant trees on both courses demand accuracy, but the Blackjack Oak Course has a reputation for being more difficult. Fair Oaks Ranch also has a driving range, three putting greens, and a chipping green with practice bunkers for golfers to use.

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.

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.
