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.

Played for the first time and enjoyed the round. The course is as previously stated in very good condition. My only comment or complaint is why I used the same club on 4 of the 5 par 3s. I unfortunately found the bunkers to be in great shape, lol. The staff treated like old friends. The patio was a great place for a drink after the round. We will be back often while we're staying in the San Antonio area.

This course is in wonderful condition right now. They've put in a ton of work on their bunkers, and greens and fairways are in great shape as always. Pace. Was very good for a Sunday.

I have played this course several times in the last 5 years and never had the course backed up as badly as this . There were 12 carts waiting at the first tee at 1pm . We had a confirmed tee time at 1pm and yet others said they had a “standing “ tee time at 1pm . To make matters worse there was no starter to sort things out . After we convinced a group of 8 golfers that we had a 1pm tee time they let our 3some go ahead . Then they hit into our group the entire round . I hope this is not the norm going forward or I will take this course off of our play list .

Course is fun to play and does not play very long or too difficult. Water hazards on several holes, but not too many to make it so difficult. Staff members accommodated needing to add 1 more player after I booked. Worth the drive from san antonio, especially for the cost. A more laid back golf course and pro shop/dining area very clean and a lot of options.

I have been playing this course for years. I love the layout because its not too difficult and if you are hitting the ball well you can post a low round. The course is in good shape but the greens were very slow. Not sure if they had just over seeded or not. Still was a fun round.

Pay attention to hole layout, especially the front 9. The 2nd hole is a sharp dogleg left to a blind island green. From his backyard, a local resident told me where the hole was, as I couldn't find it. Also 2 hidden water hazards on hole 5 on each side of the fairway. Course was hilly and fun. Greens were slow and a little patchy.

I love this course for the facility and the value. A little distant for me but worth the drive. Normally, the staff is very friendly .I had a day off and went on a Tuesday for the first time and was a witness to some unpleasant interaction from the manager/owner? While I was not the target of the verbal abuse, the middle-aged woman with short white hair was very abusive to the staff and very vocal about Golf now customers. Really a shame because I have never had a bad day there. I usually play on the weekends, so I've never run into this before.
