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.

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!!

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
