Mission del Lago Golf Course is nestled along the shores of Mitchell Lake across the flat lands of San Antonio’s south side. The golf course has a traditional links-style layout, meaning trees are sparse and windy, wide open spaces are abundant. The challenging golf course features more than a hundred sand traps and water hazards come into play on 10 holes. There are also multi-tiered greens, most of which are fast and undulating, and dry creek beds coming into play that require keen short game skills and careful strategy. The gusty Texas winds are probably the most challenging factor, though. Mission del Lago Golf Course is tricky, but five sets of tees give players of all skill levels a chance to play.

Horrible greens

I understand about the need to punch the greens it is just that these greens were horrible to try an putt on. If we had known how bad the greens were we would have booked a tee time somewhere else. I have played on greens that we’re recently punched but nothing this bad. Sorry but this was not worth the green fee we had to pay .

Greens are in bad shape

Pros: course is pretty long and somewhat forgiving off the tee, nice and challenging bunkers, GPS on the cart, it has a driving range. Con: the greens are in really really bad shap, real patchy with no grass in lots of spots. I probably will not return to Mission del Lago until the greens are in better shape.

Nice course

It took over 5 hours to play 18. We were in back of 2 threesomes. Would not let us thru. First threesome was playing from the furthest T's and were all over the place. Thank the Good Lord that the temperature was in the upper 70s or it would have been unbearable. The course was a great, fun layout and the greens were fair and true.

Way too slow

They had a company event start at 9am. My tee time was at 12:57pm. The company's last group teed off at 1:15pm. It took 1 hour and 40 minutes to finish 4 holes. I called and asked the front desk to speed the process, since Sunday's are my only days off and I had other errands to run. They sent out a Marshall to tell me they couldn't do anything about the pace of the game. They shouldn't plan the events this way. They should either set the players up on each hole, or not allow other people to make tee times behind the event. So frustrating. Only ended up playing the front nine.

Best layout in San Antonio!!!

If you have not played Mission in a while then you need to come out and enjoy the course. They have put a lot of work into this place and it is showing. The only thing its missing is a decent bar/grill. If you think you can best this course.....think again!!!! Come out here and prove me wrong!!!

On The Rebound

This golf course has for too long been the red-haired stepchild of San Antonio golf courses.

The brilliant folks who built this track in 1984 forgot to install irrigation on the fairways and neglected to plant trees.

Two years ago they put in irrigation and last year hundreds of trees were planted.

This course is a sporty layout with wide fairways and tricky greens.

The cart paths are from 33 years ago and need replacing.

There are more huge Fire Ant Mounds here than any other course. Hello, Alamo Golf Trail Executives !!

The greens here are decent. The guys in the proshop, like Brian, are friendly.

They should monitor the pace of play. Several walkers were allowed to dilly dally around the

18 here. This twosome was completely uncaring that they were holding up golfers on carts.

Minor tweaks could make this place a top notch course.

Worst Course I've Seen In 3 Years

The only positive about this course was there was nobody on it so I finished in 3 hours.

Tee Boxes: C

Fairways: B

Greens: D

Rough: F--not maintained

Bunkers: C

Cart died on 18th fairway. Paid $36 with a discount and this course is a $15 track.

US Open Rough

The rough on this course is absolutely ridiculous. I lost 12 golf balls in the rough. Most drives were only a few yards off of the fairway.

There were several areas on the course where the rough was several feet high. The rough course maintenance is terrible.

Sand traps are horrible. Almost no sand in the traps. I was fortunate not to hit a shot into any of the sand traps.

I won't be playing this course again.

Fairways ok, greens horrible

Did not enjoy my experience at Mission today. Pace of play was good, the fairways are ok, but the greens are horrible. You cannot get a feel for the greens because they have not been cut and are way to grainy. A put that is supposed to break to the right can actually break to the left because of the grain. Greens need to be cut and maintained better. I'll avoid this course for awhile.

Conditions are Very Good Right Now

Overall the course is in the best shape that I have ever seen.. Plush fairways greens are rolling smooth and holding approach shots. The rough is thick due to all the recent rain so if you your drives are wayward be prepared to look for your ball. Only negative are some of the bunkers are have standing water in them.

Comeback Course of 2014!

We play 1 of the Alamo Trail Golf Courses weekly...give the Mission staff a pat on the back for bringing this course back to one of the best public courses in south Texas, especially when you consider the reasonable green fees! I'll be back!!

Poor Service/Course Conditions

The woman in the clubhouse was extremely slow and unhelpful. Fairways are green, but 2nd cut and beyond is terrible. Greens very dry and fast. Course staff was overall unhelpful and even rude. I won't be playing this course again and wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends.
