Rating 73.4

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.

Sunday blues

Who has a tournament on a Sunday with a shotgun start so that the last group beginning on number 13 plays six holes in two hours andmakes the turn 25 minutes after our tee time off of #1!

Then, with no marshals moving them along, we get to play five holes in an hour and 45 minutes before deciding “enough is enough“.

To their credit, Silverhorn gave us a rain check and we will try again in the near future

Great Course

First time playing at this course. It was nice and we enjoyed the layout. It appeared they overbooked for the day though because we had to join another party. We just played a little slower though and let them get ahead of us.

The course is under construction which impacts play and prevented a higher rating. The greens are in much better shape than they’d been in a while.

Silverhorn Super Slow

Although I love the rate, the course, & the staff is always friendly & accomodating, you better plan to spend at least 5 hours or more per round when it is crowded.

Twilight round

Got a nice deal for Sunday twilight. Play was going well until the first par 3 on the front and it got all backed up. Really jammed up and caused me not to be able to get very many holes on the back 9. Mostly due to a very slow 4 some, two groups in front of us that had a kid in the group. Really needed a ranger to move them along. Faiways were in good shape and greens were awesome! Best i saw in my 5 rounds in San Antonio. Good value for the money for twilight.

Slow

This is the worst experience I had had at Silverhorn. The condition of the course is good but pace if play, today, was unbearable. Almost 5 hours for a 3 some. I'll be back but not much more if it's this slow

Seemed like a lot of work going on most of the holes, lots of muddy areas,

It appears the coarse needs improvements, a lot of areas that had mud and I did not like to see sanicans out on a coarse specially paying more than $40 bucks. I payed less at “maunies” that where in much better shape. We had.several foursomes in front of us (twosome) a threesome behind us kept hitting into us, I saw no marshal, so we just pretend they where not there. I will not play there again.

Nice course, but...

PACE OF PLAY WILL MAKE YOU WISH YOU STAYED HOME. There is no starter. There are no course marshals. Any complaints or suggestions to management about speeding up pace of play fall on deaf (and rude) ears. Their solution is to initiate a stated 4 1/2 hour pace of play policy. Normally this would seem reasonable, except for the fact that this course can easily be played in less than that by an average, middle handicap foursome. This leads to what happened this morning, where a good ol' boy foursome had FOUR groups stacked up behind then on the back nine. When this was finally pointed out to them, their response was "Too bad, we're within the time limit." So the policy, while well intentioned, only serves to encourage slow play and rude behavior.

So typical of management at Silverhorn. Your response to my comment is identical to the response provided to bennett306, several posts above mine. In fact, they all look like "boiler plate" responses. Why do you people even bother pretending you care about your customers? I'm going to find out who YOUR bosses are, see what they think about your social media presence.

Winter at Silverhorn

Even in winter, albeit a Texas winter, the course was in excellent shape, notably the greens. The course Wass friendly, and others who played ahead of us were polite. This was a pleasant golf experience. I did observe that the San Antonio Golf Trail carts now have a GPS that indicates the distance to the hole. But, since Silverhorn has not upgraded, we went back to our own 'dead-reckoning skills, and it was enjoyable nonetheless.
I recommend Silverhorn to all.

A Must Play Course in San Antonio

The friendliness of the staff, the quality of the course and it playing condition, and the abundance of wildlife make this a pleasurable way to enjoy several hours of sport and comraderie. SilverhornGC is certainly one of the very best courses in all the San Antonio area.

Love - Hate

Great course, close to the house. I enjoy the course but find it a bit challenging there-in the love/hate title. You’ll need to use most of the clubs in your bag, you are rewarded for good shots and course positioning. They don’t have restrooms around the course so it makes it tough when you’re playing with ladies. I’ll be back

Need a marshal

No complaints with the course but the pace of play was really slow. Hard to believe they didn't have a marshal to monitor the pace of play. There were groups who didn't know what they were doing. Some players who were looking for their lost golf ball for way longer than 5 minutes. One group would get on the tee box and stand there and talk before hitting. The group in front of them would be finishing the hole before they would even tee off. Many groups (including us) ended up quitting because it was too slow.
