An all around great day. This course is beautiful and affordable. There are a lot of blind shots and thick rough that can cause problems if you are not familiar with the course but not unfair. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The views are spectacular and the 18th hole is an incredible challenge and even more incredible few... More

There was some bad weather that had passed through the following up to our weekend. On the morning we were going to play it was a bit overcast and some morning fog. The course was in great shape and had drained really well. The entire staff was fantastic and made us feel welcomed. The course was set up very nice,... More

The weather was bad - lots of rain in the area. It had been raining for days. I had a disappointing experience on another course in the area and was hoping for a good golf day. The rain must have scared off most people because there was only one other golfer there when I got there. The service was great.... More

We loved the Palmer Course at La Cantera. This is a beautiful course that is well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a true mountain course with big elevation changes. There are a quite a few blind tee shots but also a lot of places to enjoy gorgeous views. The greens are fast and true. The... More

This was my third visit to S.A. and I continue to try different golf courses but always end up playing the Palmer course at LaCantera the most. It isn't the cheapest by any means but you get a quality course that will test ANY level of player. We play one up from the tips and it is fair but challenging... More

For the serious golfer, this is a tough and fun course. It takes at least two times to get used to the landscape. I like the up and down of the course. Very challenging.

We played on a day when the wind was blowing and the temp was very cold. The course was in excellent shape.

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
