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.

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.

Friendly Staff!

Course was in real good condition for winter season, play was fast even as a large high school group was there to practice for next days tournament. Staff was at its best! Made adjustments to accommodate us while the high school kids played. Great value and centrally located.
