Great Executive Golf Course

Been playing this executive track for over 30 years. It’s in as good a shape as it’s ever been. The layout is the best executive course in the county, and except for the 13th green (a bit diseased) the course is a pleasure to play! Walked it and got around in 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Still a good value

Following the heavy rains there were some wet spots but overall course was in playable condition. Walked 18 holes in 2.25 hours. A good value for $10 hot deal of the day! Great course to sharpen up short game <100 yds.

Absurdly Slow

I really enjoy playing here, but today was INSANELY slow. It didn't matter how many 'fivesomes' allowed me to play through....there was always another group at the next hole. By the time I got to the 10th hole and 5 cartloads of kids were lined up and waiting, I had enough and just left the course. Very frustrating waste of money and time today.

Great First Impression

Had a great time with my father-in-law playing the course this morning. Nice variety, scenery and challenging enough for someone who needs an Executive course.

We love this course

My wife and I are visiting San Marcos for a month, and have been trying multiple courses in this area. The one we have returned to most is St. Mark's Exec. Reasons: it is a pretty course, and a great test of your short game. Excellent, receptive greens that roll true. And especially, since it is hot and humid in July, we get in a morning round in well under 3 hours! Great value, and an excellent 19th hole for food and drink!
