Rating 73.1

Narrow tree-lined fairways and a creek which you often encounter make Lackland AFB's Gateway Hills Golf Course a fun round. The ninth hole, playing up a steep hill is a real experience as is the elevated green on 18. If you have a friend who is in the military and can get on, Gateway Hills Golf Course a worthwhile option with well manicured greens.

Gateway Hills Golf Course is laid out on 200 acres featuring extreme elevation changes overlooking San Antonio. The golf course meanders 6,900 yards from the back tees with many strategically located bunkers and a host of oak and mesquite trees. Gateway Hills GC provides a practice area that includes a driving range, putting green, bunker and a lob wedge practice grees

Good Greens

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.

Value course

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

Great course

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!

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.

Great course

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.

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!
