Cedar Creek is consistently rated one of the top muni courses in the USA. The hill country layout is challenging for all levels of play. Gold tees are available for scratch golfers. Some players feel that the narrow fairways allow the ball to roll to the center, but this is not evident to most players. Ride this one... it's real hard to walk. Because of it's popularity, the crowded course can play very slow. Go early or allow five hour rounds on really nice days. However, it's so pretty and great to play it's worth the time. If you can find a nice December day when the younger set is in school, that's the day to play Cedar Creek

Distance: Allow 30 minutes minimum from downtown. From I-10 going west, exit Loop 1604, then go west 3 miles to the Kyle Seale Pkwy. Turn right and drive 2 miles to the course. Watch real close for signs to clubhouse, which is on the left side of road up a long paved road.

The course is fantastic and for that i would recommend playing it to a friend other than that not worth going. Only advice if you plan to play here is to go on a slow weekday. Obviously it was overbooked Saturday and pace was the worst I've ever experienced...anywhere. Snails pace. Another big problem is...well...lets just say since its a muni it attracts a certain customer base. Just being honest. I saw so much idiocy it was astounding! Guys hitting into other groups, hitting their carts, zinging balls past us, and dam near saw two other groups fight. People jumping in between us and the group ahead at the turn because the clubhouse said “just jump in at the 10 since we have a kids tournament on the front 9”. News flash clubhouse, we are already at a crawl stop booking tee times. A real zoo out there. That gorgeous course deserves better. Too bad.

This course is not good. It's as simple as that. I have been playing high school practice rounds at this golf course for four years. I have hated it. This is the kind of course that, if you are a pretty consistent golfer, will make you lose your confidence in your game, even though there might be nothing wrong with it. The greens are the worst in San Antonio, full of random bumps, extremely slow, and inconsistent. If you play golf regularly, putting on greens like these will get you off tempo or worsen your confidence. The layout of this course is ridiculous, with fairways that slope in a way that good drives right down the middle will end up in the rough or worse. The bunkers are terrible as well, I didn't see anyone else mention that. Please don't listen to the good reviews about this place. They clearly don't know what a good golf course is. However, if really challenging courses are your thing, then this is the place. It's also in a great part of town. They sometimes have US Open Local Qualifying here, and pros seldom shoot better than 70. There are much better courses in this city like La Cantera, Brackenridge, or The Quarry.

This Course Is Great For NOTHING.

We have played this course since it started in 1989.

Back then It was a green oasis with no noise and distractions. Over the years all the beautiful green belt surrounding this tract has disappeared.

There's grass on this course but it is all dormant. They do not overseed. The greens are inconsistent.

The undulations on fairways and even greens are unlike any other course in this area.

Having a flat lie at Cedar is an anomaly. They went out of their way to create an excessive amount of berms on fairways and around greens.

There is no Ranger on this course. You are at the mercy of the slowest players and pace of play grinds to a screeching halt.

There's no fun in waiting for every shot because the duffers in front think they are Jason Day and hit from the Tips very badly.

The Trolls in the Proshop haven't changed in 30 years. Cedar has always had some of the least civil or creative employees in town.

The clubhouse is unchanged from thirty years ago. This course gets too crowded and because it's a bit better than Olmos Basin the mudhole,

or Willow Springs, too far away, and Cedar is the only NW San Antonio Muny it always gets slammed.

I was visiting from Arizona and decided to play Cedar Creek. The quality of course it was cannot be beat for the value. The tips tees provided a great challenge and caused every shot to matter, and 7100+ yards made you earn your score. Next time I'm back in San Antonio, Cedar Hills will be the first course I play.

I haven't played in a while, so I got the deal for the 2pm tee time. The staff was extremely friendly, telling us (3-some) we could tee off whenever we're ready even though our official tee time was 2:09 (we got there at 1:35pm). The course was beautiful and challenging, but not difficult. The pace was good. If anything, we were probably slowing the pair down behind us, but we didn't feel rushed. I would definitely go back in the near future.

I have played several twilight rounds. Went out at 2:09 Tuesday. Super slow round. Beginners were being allowed to play off competition tees - painfully slow. To add insult, there was no drinks cart, water was empty on 12 th tee and when I finally finished at 710 pm all the facilities in the clubhouse were closed. Had to drive to 2 miles to get a post round drink. Pretty shabby for $48 a round.
