Canyon Springs Golf Club is a true Hill Country course. You need to stay on the fairways or bring plenty of balls. Using an old farm to build on this choice piece of Texas real estate, this land has been artfully transformed into what many golfers will refer to as among the very best of what Texas has to offer. With five sets of tee boxes on each hole, demanding greens, natural Hill Country surroundings and magnificent limestone waterfalls on two holes, this 7,000-plus-yard course presents a significant challenge to event the most experienced golfers (and even those who think they are).

Warm October Round

Haven't played this course in 15-16 years as I really don't play more 2-3 times a year. Course was in great shape...just wish other golfers would respect the course and greens by fixing their divots. Definitely a risk/reward course and if you're a "Steady Eddie" you can shot really well here. Everybody was friendly especially at the turn. There was a 20-ish minute delay between 9-10.

There was a large wedding about to take place, so we did not get a chance to go into the clubhouse.

Great Day On The Course

It was a beautiful day and the course was in excellent condition. Played at 12:30 and the course was empty as there was a tournament in the morning.

A Pleasant Surprise

I normally don't do reviews, but I'm making an exception today. This is a great course for the money! Though it is in San Antonio, it looks like it is located further west in the Texas Hill Country. It has challenging holes, but the layout is very fair. The back nine is set like a links course, with lots of distance between holes so you can enjoy the scenery. There are deer everywhere, and the most beautiful part is saved for the 18th hole. There you will be surprised to see an amazing double waterfall behind the green. I can't wait to go back!

Slow play

Seems high handicap golfers should play it forward. Pace of play is slow when people play the wrong tees. Is it cheating to play forward tees. Are you
Less of a man to play forward tees ?

Great deal great course

Course was in remarkable shape despite weeks of high temperatures and no rain. Greens ran true and challenging. Sand traps not up to other standards of the course.
Staff personnel were customer- focused and very friendly. Will definitely recommend to others.
As a senior golfer, I enjoyed the variety of tee boxes.
Be sure to bring your rangefinders. Limited yardage markers on the course.

Canyon Springs

First time on this track and left very impressed. Our two-some was put together with two members and it could not have worked out better. Their knowledge of the course made the round even more enjoyable. The course itself is in great shape. The greens are in good shape, only a few questionable spots. The staff is very friendly and are more than happy to answer any questions. The only negative I would say is, that the course seemed to be over watered in some areas. I can not wait to come back and play here again!

Starter Issues

This day I had a tee time along with 3 strangers who were playing with a GolfNow greens fee like myself. I approached the starter and gave him my tee time and went off to putt near the 1st tee. There were other golfers at the 1st tee getting ready to begin play. Apparently, a single was paired up to play with my 3 players! He allowed the single to fall back to my tee time and didn't tell me what was going on. I had already asked the starter if my other 3 players were here and he said "No, I don't know where they are." The 4 players teed off and I was stuck alone, with 2 other foursomes coming up next. Geez!! I played alone and caught up to my "group," playing a fivesome for a few holes. Mind you I had to wait behind them for 6 holes. Unbelievable! The starter botched starting my foursome. If he had some intelligence he would have had 2 of us start, then 3 go off, splitting our group. Coincidentally, I separated our group and ended up playing the back 9 with that single. That old starter made the round of golf frustrating.

Tough layout, but a great challenge

We played the blue tees and the course played very tough despite only playing 6500 yards. You can pretty much leave your driver in the bag if you're a long hitter due to short landing zones and many hazards. My big complaint is the lack of yardage markers on the tees and fairways. No GPS on the carts made it especially difficult. Come prepared with a range finder.

Nice course

The course is great. When I have time and find a good deal I target this course. My only gripe this time around is that they would not let me play by my self. I know it’s selfish. It that is really how I enjoy the game the most. The reason was that it was busy, however they let us go as a double and we only passed one other slow double, and one slow single. We were playing fast and I am sure it wasn’t as busy as they made it out to be. Still appreciate they didn’t make us wait for 2 more to send us out as a foursome.
