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

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.
