About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 71
Length 6436 yards
Slope 122
Rating 70.4

Alsatian GC is an 18-hole with water in play. Front side fairly open and flat, almost links type play. Hole 2 surrounded by waterways and bunkers. Back side is hilly and has lots of trees. Super finishing hole with a tree in center of uphill fairway.

Throughout the course you will find challenging and beautiful fairways lined with trees and Spanish Dagger. The course also offers distance wedge game range, practice bunkers, three-level putting green, and a pre-round putting green.

Lodging: The Alsatian Inn is located approximately two miles from the club. A very nice facility, it has ninety rooms, a swimming pool, and a really good restaurant. Children under the age of fourteen stay free.

Distance: About 30 minutes from downtown on Highway
90 West to Castroville. But worth the trip....  Take Highway 90 West through Castroville; turn right at the blinking light just past the Alsatian Inn; veer left on CR 4516. Course is 2.5 miles down on the right.

Not in good shape at all, the greens on the front nine were horrible, the back nine got a little better but overall not well kept.

Hi, thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game, and we will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Alsatian Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Rural courses

We don't play courses in San Anton so cannot compare them. Mostly play west of city, Bandera, Uvalde.
This course is best condition around here.
Greens are mostly good. Fairways have good grass, not a lot of thick rough. Our fav course...

A Great Day to Play!

The course was in good shape, however, the bunkers were in need of a little TLC ; i.e., pull weeds and a good rake-. The undermanned-staff was friendly and responsive. A great course to work on your longer, par -3 iron game. Will definitely be back.

Great day for golf

Course is in excellent condition. Everyone had their own cart and I appreciate that! I did think the course marshal was stalking us..... he must have watched at least on 9 holes. Why?

Dean thanks for coming out to the Alsatian. We appreciate your business. The marshal was not stalking you. We have new procedures due to COVID-19 restrictions. We have asked our marshals to Constantly be on the move. We want to make sure we are practicing social distancing and our groups remain in foursomes. This has been a daunting ordeal for golf courses. Our marshals are there for your safety. Please call me at the course if you have any other questions.

Superior course for the money

This is my decorum time playing the course, 1st time we played 10 holes because that’s the way it’s designed and the 2nd time 18 holes. It is a beautiful course with nice fairways and great greens. Just watch out for hole number two because it’s interesting layout. It’s a homely course for the locals in Castroville, Texas.

So/So

Very well kept course.. Pace of play was my only problem.
But its not like thats the proshops fault. Just be aware that players at this course dont think about others. So play at your own pace regardless of 3 carts waiting at the tee box.

Sunday Fu day at Alsatian Golf Course

I had t played here since it first opened over 20 yrs ago. The layout was challenging but not impossible. The fairways were in very good shape as were most of the greens. The staff was incredibly friendly, helpful, and efficient. I will definitely be coming back!

This course has great features

One of the characteristics of the golf course here is that the tee shots can be hit in a lively manner with a relatively straight layout.
The speed of the green is also moderate. It is a course that even beginners can enjoy.

Enjoyable round of golf

Neat course. You play 1-10, then the turn to 11-18. Fairly wide open and forgiving. Very nice staff.
on the day we played it was very foggy but no issues.

At least it was cheap

The best thing about this round was it was only $18 on GolfNow. The front 9 was absolutely the worst design of any course I’ve ever played. There was a yardage book that was useless. On holes 2 through 5 there is nothing to identify where the hole is going. I suppose after playing it a few times you could figure it out.
The back 9 was much better. Fairways and greens were acceptable for early March. My recommendation is to play Golf Club of Texas a few miles away.

My name is Laura Reed, the GM of the Alsatian Golf Club. I am sorry you did not like our course. However, our greens and fairways are in excellent condition. The Golf Club of Texas is a great course too. I hop you have fun playing there.

Played here several months ago. The course was in better condition. The greens need work. Too much water and mud around greens. Disappointing.
