Situated on the north bank of the Guadalupe River, Max Starcke Park Golf Course stretches across a scenic landscape of century-old pecan trees. The golf course is easy to walk being of mostly flat terrain. Trees line the fairways, making accurate tee shots top priority in scoring well. There are also strategically placed bunkers throughout the golf course and water hazards coming into play on a few holes for added challenge. Max Starcke Park Golf Course’s signature hole is the par-4 finishing hole, which requires a tee shot down a narrow fairway bordered by pecan trees on the right and a pond on the left. Considered one of the best municipal golf courses in Texas, Max Starcke Park G.C. also offers a practice and putting green and driving range.

No frills, not the greatest conditions but overall a good walk of a decent municipal golf course. Course was kept in the shape I would expect and had some holes that were interesting. No frills clubhouse and practice area.

Starcke is a well designed, great municipal golf course. Have played this course since the early 60's. It's just a good, solid golf course. What you see is what you get.

Staff is great and the course is well managed.

Got there at 8:30 and off by 11:00 - Bad golf doesn't have to take long! It's winter, golf course is in good shape. All of the greens had some poa annua on it, 17 I think was bumpy. The rest were fine. Easy walk or ride, I liked it and would go back anytime.

The course was dry from lack of water. The tee boxes were in poor shape, rough with little grass.

The course was in good shape last year, it reminds me of the the courses my father used to take when I was a kid, nothing fancy, straight up good ol golf, you do have to work the ball, which is how Golf is supposed to be played not always hitting it 500 miles.

Thanks Starke Park for keeping ol school tradition.
