Conditions of the greens were horrible. Looked like the pin positions had not been changed for a week, and as a result, bare ground and serious fraying at the holes. Staff was not too concerned about this. Supposed to be a premier course. Great layout and fairway conditions, but would not play this course again. Expensive golf for San Antonio.

This course has it all from the slopes, elevation changes, blind tee shots and amazing views. The service is top notch from the bag drop, clubhouse, starter and cart girl. I played this course with my teenage son and it was a great experience for us both. After checking in the clubhouse we made our way to the practice range... More

The service when you arrive is outstanding. Your name on cart, they put your clubs in the cart for you, park your vehicle just everything to make your visit outstanding. Can't wait to go back.

From the moment I arrived the staff was friendly and helpful. The course and its views simply spectacular. I'm from Florida and it's always a treat to play elevation changes. Although intimidating, the fairways were open and the greens fast and true. The grain was crazy fast or slow depending on your spot. Give it a go!

The course and staff are amazing here! We played here on Saturday and it wasn't crowded and didnt have anyone pushing up behind us all day! Great layout, challenging at times and the views are impeccable!

A bit on the pricey side, but worth it for me and any golf person. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The course itself was beautifully laid out and challenging.

Located next to the shops at la Cantara and Six Flags. It's the easier of the two resort courses at the Westin on the northwest side of SA. Some real blind second shots located in the hill country of Texas. Fun course to play, if your and avid golfer don't miss this one. The other resort course is excellent also.... More
