Course is not well maintained. Fairways lack adequate grass. Second cut is non-existent. Tee boxes are a mixed bag of poor to fair. Greens are in fairly good shape. Cart paths need substantial work/ repair. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Given the state of the course overall, the Golf Now rate is too high.
Read the Tee time policy
For anyone interested in this course. Take the time to review all the small print and golf course policies. My friend and I purchased a hot deal tee time since we were in San Antonio over the weekend. We purchased the tee time at the last minute and failed to adhere to the tee time policy of the 24 hours notification at the golf course. Needless to say we didn’t get to play and lost out on the money for the tee times. It would be great if Golfnow would highlight the policy for playing this course, so others don’t waste their time and money.
As a member at the course, we usually play on saturdays and sundays. Good layout, pace of play usually is quick. Course has declined a little but sill an excellent course to play. Staff is very friendly.
Great time. Great layout
Beadre lutiful course. A little dry. But that's all of San antonio.
You can get a really cheap rate to play this course, and it is not a difficult course. It has some interesting elevation changes, but it’s overall not very challenging. My only gripe is with the gentleman in the pro shop (the older one). He is always very impersonal almost to the point of being rude.
Course has some tough holes with hills
Tee to green the. Purse was in good shape even in the hot summer weather. If you get into the rough due to a bad slice or hook, than these areas were in bad shape due to a lack of water here. So, just stay in the fairway and you will be ok. I wish I could take my own advice on that ....lol
Temp might have been pretty high but it felt very pleasant on the golf course. I guess the humidity was low and a nice breeze made it so nice. Greens are in great condition. Looking forward to playing this golf course again!
Needed water - none found
I really don't understand the five-star reviews. This course is in poor condition tee to green. Many fairways gone....
Course was I good shape and everything was enjoyable; even got treated to “retreat” on the 13th hole which brought back Lackland memories
Great day at LAFB
Had a great day at Gateway Hills. Pro shop staff was top shelf and let us start our round 25 min prior to our scheduled time. Course was in really good shape and the greens were soft and receptive to approach shots. Only down side to entire experience was a group of 5 older female golfers who would not let people play through. After we got past them, the entire course was open and we breezed through our round. Course is in best shape it has been for many years and you can tell their hard work is paying off. Kudos to LAFB.
Gateway Hills has completed the renovation on hole one...They did a great job. Hope they fix number 10 next. My swing was good .....why didn't those putts go in!!!!
Enjoyed the round. But, if you get there early (before your tee time) don’t expect to get on the course (even if you’re the only one there) Unless you pay an extra $10!!!. This is a change from the past. Not sure why the change.
Beautiful day for golf
Drainage on hole 1 is complete...Wow nice improvement. Hope they work on hole 10 sometime soon. Met some good old guys waiting for group in front of them.....The 92 year old was just a little slow. Could be he was taking his time .....working on all those pars!
Gateway Hills getting ready for Summer
Working hard to be ready for the Summer. Can’t wait to see the course in May.
While the course is in need of some work, it is a quiet and peaceful tract. I enjoyed the elevation changes and wide fairways. Always great to see USAirforce Cargo planes overhead!
