San Antonio Golf at its finest

Hands down the best Public course in the San Antonio area in my opinion. It has an interesting layout and it’s always in great shape from tee to greens. This course, on a clear day, will also give you some of the best views in San Antonio.

little too tough for 70 year old 18 handicap

tough layout, with very long rough, the carts would cut out without warning sometimes as far as 90 yards from the green

Excellent conditions

Greens and fairways were in fantastic condition......especially for this time of year. Bermuda rough made errant shots a bit more difficult to find. Pace of play was great. Challenging course with gorgeous views. Definitely recommend playing.

Great course on a hot day

Course is really nice. Greens in great shape. The rough is very thick so stay in the fairways. We really enjoyed our time. And the people working there is extremely friendly and welcoming.

Great layout.

Pace of play got slow at the 14th hole. I have to take out a loan to pay for a mixed drink. Canyon Springs is just as nice for an average of $35. I like the Palmer because it is usually not crowded. Perhaps that is because of the cost. Don't mind deals if you have them. I am a senior citizen on a fixed income, so I will have to play more at Canyon Springs because of cost.

Played here a few times and course lay out is really cool. Conditions are sub par for a high end resort course and being a Troon course. If you are looking to play a nice Troon Course head north a little and go to Kissing Tree.... Cost is lower and course conditions are always top tier.

Great course

Great course. Enjoyed the layout and the course was in very good condition. Tee times were spaced 20 minutes apart which helped the pace. Golf staff were very mindful of social distancing and disinfection requirements. Overall, very pleased.

Resort Golf at its Best

First time to play this scenic golf course. Beautifully designed up and down the Hill Country of Texas. Signature hole overlooking Fiesta Texas is stunning, but so are others.. Bring your ‘A’ game and keep the ball in the fairway. Greens are huge with undulations and levels. Important to play from the right tee box to enjoy the round.. A wonderful golf experience. Can’t wait to play it again.

Top 5 course I have ever played

This was a really impressive course with amazing views, elevation changes throughout the course, perfect conditions, and an awesome layout with fun shots and risk reward shots. Thanks for the experience and we will be back. Also played hill country Hyatt and it was in terrible shape and doesn’t hold a candle to la cantera.

Other then the fact we played with a group that ruined our round, it was a great golf course. These guys yelled, screamed, cussed and lashed out extremely loud and ugly to the point where we couldn’t enjoy it. I wanted to leave but we paid good money to play there.

Hole in one

This course was amazing. Top five in southern Texas for sure, can’t wait to come back and shoot low. Would definitely recommend to anyone that can really play. La Cantera is also a love place to hold benefits or bring that important client. Have fun guys and girls.

Fantastic Day at La Cantera

The course was in pristine condition, and was empty. We never saw another group the entire round. This is a challenging and rewarding course, with lots of elevation change and natural features. It was definitely worth it for the 42 price offer they were running. Had a blast!

Great course

Course was in great shape and greens played very good. Only issue was cart girl availability. We finally got her on the last hole of the round.

Resort fun

More enjoyable of the two La Cantera courses. Not as many blind shots. Greens are tricky. Staff is friendly. Conditions are always good. Always a good choice for a solid round of golf. Enjoy.
