Historic Tillinghast designed course built in 1916. Lovely course. A little pricey for a muni, but worth it for the experience.

Made a tee time for 9:30 when we showed up we were told that they had a tournament going on and it would be at least a 30 minute delay. They could have a least told me when I made the tee time about the tournament and we would have gone to another course. We had the third tee time... More

Played "the Brack" for the first time yesterday (late October). It was in great shape, although the greens were very S-L-O-W. The tree-lined fairways require an accurate shot off the tee box. I am usually pretty accurate with my driver but only hit 50% of the fairways here. Others in my foursome resorted to their 3-woods in place of their... More

This Golf course is in good shape and fun to play.It is a challenging course were you have to place your ball carefully to have a shot to the green and score well. A course with a lot of history and played by very famous people. This course is part of the Alamo Golf trail and is the jewel of... More

I stumbled on this course earlier this year after playing a golf tournament for a local tour. The course is really nice and has lots of trees and pretty nice greens. I've played many San Antonio courses and this one is one of my favorites. The only drawback is that it does get quite busy on the weekends, so you... More

The is an old Tillinghurst design that is in terrific shape. Short but not easy it will test you. The greens are top notch. The old trees that line the fairways require straight well thought shots. Many Texas Opens we're played here so you are on hollowed golf ground. Hogan, Nelson and many others have played. They have a$6.98 lunch... More

This is an old Tillinghast course from 1916 that was remodeled four years ago. This place was once infamous for long rounds and too many hackers hitting the wrong fairways. We played here twice this year trying to get a better feel for this tract. This course is over-hyped and over-priced. The expensive redesign has not changed the front nine... More

Since the restoration a few years ago, this muni ranks up there with the best San Antonio has to offer. Built by Tillinghast in 1916, it is a little gem. About 6400 yards from the tips, it is the sand traps that pose the greatest challenge, as they are strategically placed in the fairway to cause you to have to... More

Brack as we call the course here was recently restored to its original glory except for a small part that was taken to build highway 281. Even though it is relatively short, it is a real challenge with the river, creek and well-placed bunkers. It is fun too and you walk with the legends of golf. Brack was the home... More
