Rating 72.4
The land that now provides a home to Quarry Golf Course was formerly the abandoned Alamo Cement plant. Keith Foster converted this unique location into a challenging layout with a links-style front nine and a back nine that plays entirely through an abandoned rock quarry with walls over a 100 feet tall on three sides. The first half of the golf course features plays through open fields of rolling hills with native grasses and a near absence of trees. Creeks and streams come into play on six holes of the front nine. The quarry pit on the back nine is truly the most unique feature on the golf course. Quarry Golf Course's most dramatic hole is the 17th, which requires a tee shot over a deep ravine that is framed by a 40-foot waterfall.

Great course, bad greens

I like the course and play there frequently. However, this time I was disappointed. The greens were horrible and certainly not worth $79 plus tax. My friends are seniors and did not receive any special rates. I will not be back until the greens are fixed or they only charge $50.

Challenging course

Nice Pro Shop and friendly check in. My cart was marked with my name and Free range balls started my round. This course has some of the longest Par 4’s I’ve ever played. Water is in play on at least half of the holes. Bunkers were strategically placed and the sand was soft even though it had rained the day before. The back 9 is in the Quarry itself and posed elevated tee boxes and greens. Greens throughout were well manicured and were fairly fast. Overall shape of the course was very good for winter golf conditions.

5 hour round

Course is in decent shape, but the pace of play was horrible. I saw a Marshal but I don't guess they were encouraging anyone to speed up play.

Cool Course

First time playing and has a really cool layout. Just not worth $100/round during the winter. I'll play again when I'm in town, hopefully a different season. The high grass was cut down which took the bite out of a fairly short course.

Great course

Made reservations a week in advance. The day prior to the round it rained all day. Was worried course was going to be a swamp the next day. Went out, there was hardly anyone on the course and the it drained very well. It was cart path only as expected but was amazed only few saturated areas. Cold day but overall great fun round. Plenty of challenging holes to test your driving accuracy.

Pleasant surprise

Really nice course, better than I expected. Challenging yet fair. Greens in great shape. Fairways very good too. Was thinking the front nine would be boring, and actually it was very entertaining. Back nine in the quarry even better. Driving range was mats only though, which wasn’t a big deal. I’ve played La Cantera Palmer twice and I’d rather play The Quarry again instead. Impossible to be disappointed with this course for money spent.

Great Experience Start to Finish

Just a great day of golf. Friendly staff, course was in great condition, decent pace of play. Fun course that gives you four tee box choices - if you choose the right one, the course is very fun and manageable. Links on the front nine and the quarry in the back makes it feel like you are playing two different courses. The quarry nine is very scenic and challenging. The tee shot on 17 is terrifying - requiring a long carry on the diagonal over the quarry to a very narrow landing area, and 18 is no bargain either. Hit those two fairways and you can say you accomplished something. Otherwise there are generous landing areas. Didn't have a bad lie all day. Just keep it out of the tall grass. Highly recommended.

Challenging, but fun!

Really enjoyed golf at the Quarry. Very surprised course was in such good condition based on recent heavy rain. Staff was definitely appropriate. Course layout challenging, but fun. Designer of course did a great job transforming rock quarry section (back nine) into a challenging golf course. Get ready for lots of water, throw in a few canyons, interesting hole settings, and nice surroundings. The 13th & 17th holes are signature holes for the course. Pace was nice for a Sunday noon. Overall, for the first timer on the course, it will work your management skills. If there’s a negative, we didn’t see refreshment cart until 17th. The snack bar is more like a restaurant, appeared geared for seat & eat, we could not ordet prior to making turn. I will play there again in near future.
