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).

I play at this course about 3 times a month. Good to see the greens coming back, this due to some maintenance however all else was great! Pro shop staff very accommendating and flexible when needed. The bar/restaurant always my favorite, beers are always Absolutely Cold and Mary Always takes great care of us. One thing that sometimes is a surprise is the bar closes early, on my last visit the bar closed at 3PM.

I played in a tournament here a couple of weeks ago. This used to be a top rated course in San Antonio, however that’s no longer the case. Two major complaints: the greens are in horrible shape and the golf cart ran out of battery leaving stranded with two holes to go. The staff claimed that the greens were attacked by some fungus so they had to repatch most of them and in some case there wasn’t even grass on some parts. My recommendation, don’t play here until the greens are back to good shape.

Greens were in poor shape many of which had patches that were under repair, but at least they had taken steps to try to rectify the situation. However, for the price of green fees, I would be reluctant to return unless course conditions were better.

Course overall was not in bad shape but a lot of the greens were. A number of greens were patched and under repair. Would have expected cheaper fees considering the disrepair or at least a warning.

The greens were almost not playable. We took a group of 10 players for a tournament. We called the course a couple of days before our tournament and asked for the course condition. We were told there might be a couple of greens with brown spots, but were playable. That was not true at all, There was only a couple of greens that were not damaged. One green had half roped off and re-sodded and not playable. Don't have a problem with the green conditions. A huge problem with being misled about their condition. They Just wanted to get our money and didn't care about anything else.

This is overall a nice course, but the greens are always in bad conditions, and keep getting worse, it's a shame because the rest of the course is in good shape.

Played on a blustery (very windy, not cold) Sunday morning. Was expecting a very long round but we played in just over 4 hrs which was awesome considering the conditions. This course is priced at $20-40 more than other not so distant comparable or slightly lesser options and $20-40 less than notably better courses (LaCantera and TPC). I was appalled at the condition of the greens, especially considering their price point. I've played 6 other courses that endured the same San Antonio winter weather the past couple months and those courses' greens are in far better condition. The fairways and tees were in good to fair condition. The course itself is a pretty entertaining layout but it always gets off to a slow start with a reachable par 4, reachable par 5, and par 3 right out of the gates. Despite that, pace of play my day was excellent. We saw the beverage cart 4 times in 4 hours which was great. Didn't order each time but appreciated the effort. Halfway/starter house and practice facility are above average but not excellent.

Very nice challenging course, worth every penny especially when you can find a hot deal! Great scenery as well! Greens were under some type of maintenance. Best part of the round was one of the golf pro’s Riley Reyes helping me find my shades on hole 7, very much appreciated!

I played Canyon Springs 4 March and I’m glad I got a Golf Now Hot Deal for $39. The course is still in winter mode and the greens were in terrible condition. Lots of fungus and they seeded or were treating the fungus and the greens were terrible. I’m not sure why they don’t let people know before they go out to play that the course is not up to speed. The course layout is excellent with changes in elevations and rolling greens. There is hardly any water hazards and the roughs were in winter shape; completely unkept. If the greens recover in the spring this course have the potential to be a great local public course. Right now is at municipal course level at best, not worth the premium price they are asking for the green fees. For this price range The Quarry or Valeer Creek are much better choices .
