Silverhorn Golf Club of Texas, located only 15 minutes from San Antonio's Riverwalk, has quickly gained a reputation as being some of the best golf in Texas. The layout covers 262 scenic acres of rolling hills covered in mature oaks and cedar trees. The challenging golf course features tree-lined fairways and carefully contoured greens. There are also lakes and creeks, both dry and wet, coming into play throughout the golf course. The front nine's signature hole is the par-5 sixth, which has 20 acres of water bordering the entire left side, while the back nine's signature is the par-4 15th, which is considered the toughest hole on the golf course. This 446-yard hole features an elevated green that is guarded by a large bunker on the left and two creeks crossing the fairway.

Construction everywhere and very slow pace with no marshall

This might have been a good course a long time ago but they last two times I’ve played here it has been awful. There was construction going on all over the course. Trenches dug all over the course, piles of dirt and mud in the middle of fairways and all along the cart paths. Several times we had to hit over tractors parked all over the course or walk through mud to pick up our balls and move them to grass since there were trenches everywhere. Not only was the course under construction with below average fairway conditions they don’t provide a club cleaning device on the cart, ie no water, scrubbing tool or towels. There’s also not on board GPS which is pretty standard for golf courses with similar green fees. There’s also not a Marshall that’s helping help with pace of play. We were constantly having to wait for group in front of us who were spending way too much time looking for balls. We even passed them on back nine and caught up to next group at next hole and encountered same problem. Took little over 5 hours to play which is really slow. The staff in clubhouse and bar were nice but not enough to overcome all the problems. I live about 8 min from this course and it’s not at all worth the short drive.

Overall high quality except when wet

Played an afternoon round with two other GolfPass member medium to low handicappers. Pace of play was good except for when we caught up to a single who was playing several balls and oblivious to the situation behind him.

Clubhouse, practice green, and range are all good quality. This was a "mats only/no driver" day and water was still pooled on the mats from recent rains.
Had to look for dry spots to avoid splashing water when hitting.

Clubhouse staff are very helpful. There is no on course marshal however golfers are called to first tee via PA system. There is a beverage cart service.

The greens are in excellent condition right now. The fairways and rough are the usual central TX dormant grass. The bunkers are normal sand.

This course deserves very high marks for design, location, clubhouse staff, and especially for the condition of the greens. It is generally flat and somewhat protected from the winds. Trees and multiple creek crossings add to the difficulty. There is no in cart GPS and they do not have yardage books available.

On the negative side the drainage may be the worst of any course in the area. Extensive ponded water and mud made for an awkward cartpath-only day. There appears to be quite a bit of remedial work underway. I recommend that you check the course condition before playing and avoid wet days.

The only criticism we had was the lack of a Marshall and having to play a 4 hour 45 minutes round.

Excellent greens, incredible Sunday afternoon pace of play

Course was in great shape, and greens were fabulous for mid-January. Although only a little slow from recent rain they ran very true. Thanks to Dillon for getting me set up with another two-some......pace of play was awesome.

Great Course - Poor Greens Etiquette

One of my favorite courses in San Antonio. Usually well maintained. Very pretty. Requires shot making. Has some of the best greens in town. Unfortunately those that play there don't know how to fix their ball marks and leave the greens full of unrepaired ball marks. For some reason its worse here than other courses. Although the greens keeper does an excellent job on the greens, it's very frustrating to play on. How about we all get in the habit of fixing our own ball mark and one other ball mark every time we're on a green and we'll all benefit with excellent greens?! Especially here at Silverhorn!

The greens were in excellent condition and the layout is excellent. It had rained the day before so it was cart path only.. pace of play was slow (4.5-4.75 hrs) as a result.. very good value ($30 on Tuesdays) as well as 2 for 1 hamburgers..

Okay golf course with slow pace of play.

Biggest problem with this course is pace of play. Very narrow fairways so lots of lost balls which slows down play. Course has gone down in quality of its greens, fairways and tee boxes. Also course is putting in major new pipe so front 9 is torn up. Don't pay more than $30 to play this course. Not worth it.

Great Course!

I used to always avoid playing Silverhorn Golf Club due to the very slow pace of play. But the last few rounds I have played here the pace of play was great and no waiting around on any holes at all. Since their new GM took over things have gotten much better here. In the old days it was put as many golfers on the course as possible and dont care how slow the pace of play might be. Now its the complete opposite of that. I really enjoy playing here much more than I did. The staff here is excellent and very courteous to it golfers. I walked on as a single and was paired up with a very nice couple to play with. Made my golf round so enjoyable. I will return to this course soon to play here again. I love the layout and the price on Tuesday's is a great one. Thank you again for having such a great course!

When will construction be done

The course is in good condition for mid November. Greens ran true and fairway conditions were good as well. There is evidence of construction that is in progress (covered excavations, sections of pipe) but no not clear when any of it will be complete. No construction equipment in sight, which suggests is it on hold. Did not impact play to any significant degree.

Plodding like a horse

Course was in great shape, greens were good but slow play is very frustrating. A ranger with a stop watch would be very helpful. 5 + minutes Delay per hole-at least!
