About

Holes 18
Type Municipal
Par 71
Length 6205
Slope 136
Rating 70.3
Originally opened in 1938 as a nine-hole course, Landa Park Golf Course has since expanded by 52 acres in 1969 to make it an 18-hole course. Although it is on the shorter side, the golf course is still entertaining for golfers of all skill levels. Bordering the Comal River, there are some water hazards coming into play on the course. The fairways are wide and there are not many difficult approach shots, making it a more player-friendly golf course. Landa Park Golf Course features small, undulating greens and there are mature trees lining the fairways. Although it is fairly forgiving, Landa Park does have some challenges, including the lengthy par-5 fourth hole that stretches over 550 yards.

Hill country surprise

Lots of wildlife. Beautiful setting.

River runs thru it. Combination of easy and challenging holes when played from the correct tees. Greens always in impeccable shape. Overseeded fairways add to the beauty . Friendly people in a pleasant setting.

Always enjoy the experience

fun course

the fairways were cut very close, they were over seeded but the grass was so short it was like hitting off hard pan. Need to let the grass grow some

Great course

This course is in perfect condition. Pace of play was a little slow. A marshal would have helped. It was a perfect day for golf and the scenery at Landa is amazing. Highly recommend playing this course.

Very pleasantly surprised at how much I like this course

I'll tell you up front that the one thing you won't find on this course is a driving range. They do have a couple of hitting bays (nets) if you feel the need to warm up, etc. Past that, I think this course has just about everything else you could need/want. Now I didn't see a beverage cart during this round, but it was a Monday in December. So, you can't really expect one on a public course like this; there just aren't that many players. I can't wait to come back and play this course again ... especially in the spring when the trees are full again.

The course is fairly wide open with only a scattering of trees to define the fairways, knock your ball down, etc. This will certainly allow you to scramble and recover as necessary -- especially for those of us who are currently having trouble controlling the driver and 3-wood.

The course had a really nice use of natural plants and grasses all around the course -- around the ponds, in some of the bunkers, etc. Some courses feel a little over-designed with their landscaping but this one felt very natural ... as if they'd just found the space to put the holes around nature that was already in place. When you can't tell one way or the other, then it works very well regardless.

The numerous bunkers were all in quite good shape; I found four (4) of them on this round. A few needed a little maintenance but only due to the several days of rain that we'd received in the past week. There's only so much a ground crew can do. The rest just takes time for them to dry out.

The greens were fast and the front nine (9) had just recently been sanded. But still, they were all in excellent shape. The fairways were in excellent shape as well. This course was a really nice treat for a winter golf round. Too many courses dry out and just aren't maintained as well as you'd like. This course is doing things right and the golfers are appreciative.

It's a fun course -- shorter than most courses (especially the newer ones). This one will make you put your driver away on numerous 4-par holes. You'll likely practice a few more fairway target shots than normal on this course. I like that! I want to use more than four (4) clubs in my bag. I want to pull out my 3-wood, my hybrid, my long irons, etc. But it's not some super easy course. They compensate for the shorter distance with narrowing fairways, well placed water and bunker hazards, forced carries, etc. It's basically got a little bit of everything. As much as some of us hate seeing that pond or wet creek right in front of a green, I like and accept the challenge. I don't want to get bored of just hitting another shot up to or near the green. Being able to bump-n-run too often just doesn't challenge us enough. I like that this course puts it in your face once in awhile and says "Well, what'ya got!? Let's see it." I will say that you need to know where the water is located. While many courses have ponds cut into the ground with a flat bank, there are a few spots on this course where the ground has a sloped roll-off. If you get too close to it and the grass is cut shorter than longer (as it was today), then your ball will just keep rolling until it's wet.

The clubhouse is just about perfect for a course like this. The pro shop is small-ish but they have whatever you might need. They have a nice 19th hole as well as a banquet room with a small deck overlooking the creek. It's a good setup. And the staff was very down-home friendly.

A few other things I noticed that not every course has these days:

-- ball washers on cart

-- club washers on cart

-- green sand on cart (I'm a fan of the green.)

-- benches for walkers et al to rest

-- ball washers on course

-- water on course (a standard in Texas but thought I'd mention it)

They also have a good amount of wildlife on this course. There are a two or three herds of deer throughout the course. They're very tame and quite used to the golfing activity. We also ran across a couple varieties of ducks who make the course and nearby creek/springs/river home. You can see seven (7) of these ferocious little guys in the attached picture.

Finally, while there is a road or two bordering the course, the traffic is quiet and minimal. The nature (trees, creeks, rivers, etc) will dominate your enjoyment of this area. There's also a train track that cuts through the middle of the course alongside one of the roads. But it's always a slow moving train with that perfect tempo; love the sound of those wheels as they barely push it along the track.

Nice Course

Greens are exceptional, lots of bunkers, fairways full with grass, rough grown up an it adds to the course. The course is short, 6200 yds from tips but the rough and bunkers make it a good course. Greens put true, lots, and I mean a lot, of unduladation and very fast. Highly recommend this course.

Great course for the money

The had just recently plugged the greens and it was pretty dry course conditions. But maintenance is just part of it so I'm sure in a month or so the greens will be back in good shape. Great course for the money and good willing we will get some rain soon to help the dry conditions

Fun course layout with bad pace of play

I love the course layout with nice water features protecting a couple greens. The course sits next to a clear river with nice views on only a couple holes. Landa has a nice little chipping and putting green with a sizable practice bunker but there’s no marshal keeping the slow groups in line. This was my second visit to landa and both days were super slow with groups waiting in front and behind me.

Great course

First time playing. Great layout. Greens in very good shape roll true and hold. Do not let the yardage fool you not nearly as easy as the yardage indicates. Love this course will be going back!
