Beautiful Arnie Palmer course. Top notch golf. Greens and fairways were fantastic. If you are in San Antonio you have to play. Scenic w/wild life abound.

Yesterday, November 19, 2014, I played on the best greens in San Antonio. My guy Mike told me they had just double cut the greens and that they would be fast. I asked how fast and Mike estimated a 10. I am here to report that you do not want to get above the hole and downgrain on any of... More

A challenging course for the average player. Terrific views of surrounding area and all the way to downtown San Antonio. Lots of elevation change including some "blind" tee shots. Watch for "critters" in the rough---a ball just is not worth an unexpected encounter with a native snake!!

My foursome played this course in early October and the weather was spectacular. The views from this course are also spectacular. This is a high-end course with high-end amenities and a high-end price. I believe at one time it was a Senior PGA tournament site but the hilliness was not particularly attractive for senior golfers. We played this course on... More

La Catera has two courses, he Palmer Course and the Resort Course. Both are challenging with tee to green elevation changes. The layouts are good and course was in excellent condition, but you pay a price if you don't keep the ball in the fairway; 2nd cut is dep enough to swallow a ball. Staff is courteous and helpful.

Played here in a scramble and had a lot of fun. The course is challenging but nice to play. The club house is very nice and the course is well kept

Not a great experience. If you play in the morning, eat before you go. If you are lucky enough to even find someone to take your order, food sucks. Staff has a kind of a 'stiff' attitude. I went a couple hours early to work on my swing since coming off the winter, i have not played much. I must... More
