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.

Front and back nine are very different. The back being the more difficult quarry holes. Both highly enjoyable.

#17 is my favorite. I played the Championship tees which required a 250 yard carry over the canyon wall with a stiff headwind. Great example of the mix of shot making required, with some relatively easy and some more challenging.

Played this course a few times. Played yesterday and it was too crowded. No carts available for 20 minutes, slow place of play. Played this morning (7:20 am) and had to quit after nine (2nd time) due to management overbooking and 3 groups on 10th tee box when we pulled up after nine. Like the course but done with it. Understand financial needs but customer happiness just as important in my opinion.

Great time at the Quarry. Professional staff. Great price with GolfNow. Pace of play was excellent. Played with a great group of guys from out of town. The 17th Hole is my favorite. The Quarry is in my top five Texas courses to play. Boot Ranch and The Rawls are two of my favorite.

While the layout of the course is unique and cool to play, it is not a course worthy of the hundred dollar price tag. This course should be a $50-$60 max green fee. The course that Day had an outing which started at 1:30pm that day andvour tee time was at 8:20. We never saw a beverage cart the entire round! Our round was 4 hours and 15 minutes, which I thought was great, but for the course to forget about their regular customers that day due to an outing showed poorly in my opinion. Sorry, not worth the money. Go play La Canter’s courses instead

Our first time playing there. In all honesty, I was expecting a course in better condition versus what we experienced. Being from the north, I do not know if this area experienced tough weather that has growth of grass behind or not. The greens had some weed in them which made putting difficult. The course layout is awesome and the people were extremely friendly. I will give this place a shot again the next time we are in the area!!!

Staff were very accommodating. The front nine had some interesting holes, but the back nine in the quarry was very exciting. From the views, to the nice fairways and greens, to the red-tailed hawk working the quarry, we had a great time. Thanks.

Had 1 PM Hot Deal tee time but there was a tournament scheduled at noon so pace of play was terrible. Had to wait 5-10 mins. on every tee box. That made for a 5 1/2 hr round. Beautiful day so we still enjoyed the course. The back 9 is stunningly laid out. Swirling winds and natural obstacles made for an interesting round. Would play again!

Had a chance to play a weekday round. Pace was excellent. Overall course condition was very good. Fairways growing in from Winter dormancy, greens overall rolled true. Definitely worth playing when the weather is not too hot.

This was a great day to play golf. A little overcast in the morning and the sun popped out as the round progressed. The course is in great condition and coming out of it's winter conditions. Had a great time with friends and the super good deal on GolfNow was the icing on the cake.

The course was very interesting with two different styles of course - links and rock quarry. The course condition was very good though greens were a bit slower than expected perhaps because of recent rains. The staff we superb trying to do their best to work with our Golf Now tee time around two tournaments.

All was great... in fact was late a couple of minutes and they worked us in. It had rained so it was cart paths only which wasn't all bad. I would play again. We played it 6100 yards which for me was a bit short but 6700 was to long for my partner that plays once every two months. Views are great.

Perhaps it was because we were playing in winter conditions (i.e. February in light rain), but based on what I had read I expected more, basically came away disappointed. Would I play this course again for that price? No. Perhaps I would play again at a twilight rate. Great staff, very nice.
