Rating 72.0

Situated on the north bank of the Guadalupe River, Starcke Park Golf Course (formerly known as 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. 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.

First Time Playing

Couldn’t get a cart 45 minutes before my tee time to take to the range, cart wasn’t available until 5 minutes before tee time. Fairways were in terrible shape, overgrown, couldn’t tell where one fairway ended, the rough began, or the next fairway. All the holes overlapped each other this way. Sand traps were like cement.
Greens in surprisinly good shape for how poor the course was overall

No happy

We started out slow. There was a foursome with cart but they start walking down the fairway the marshal had to tell them to let us thru twice. The greens were very slow and bumpy. Wasn’t happy for what we paid for not worth the price. Will not play again. First and last time.

Great and challenging course for the money

I love playing at Starcke Park Golf Course as the staff is always extremely friendly and accommodating. The course is in amazingly good condition right now due to the recent rains. Pace of place is fairly good most anytime of the day, but I typically play early in the morning and things seem to fly by pretty quickly. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

The greens are a little bumpy which is not usually the case at Starcke Park.
