This has to be one of the prettiest public golf courses I have ever played. It is located 5 minutes from downtown, The greens and fairways were in perfect shape and the course has a lot of character. Will definitely go back!

I used to play here all the time a few years ago before they did a major renovation and jacked up the green fees. I never really had the desire to go back because I could never envision the course being on par with the other courses at this price. I got invited to play in a tourney here and... More

If you've seen my reviews of San Antonio you know that we had planned to just spend our 4 day trip on the River Walk with the misunderstanding there would be lots to see and do. Big mistake - if you don't drink or eat a lot it gets old really quickly. Hubby and I are avid golfers and didn't... More

this was an interesting course. the layout is good, but different, trees in the middle of the fairways. the tee blocks, fairways and greens are in good shape. the service in the pro shop was not very good. it has been our experience that everyone in the south is super friendly, well i guess this guy did not get the...

Nice opportunity to play disc golf course. Played in a scramble format. Fun and enjoyable! Not overly hard, designed layout is fair. Would look forward to another opportunity to play this course.

Everyone needs to play the first public course in Texas. Walk the fairways the great went down. Course was designed by Tillinghast (if you don't know look him up) and a "gooder". It was redone a few years ago & in nice shape. Do wonder about the square greens? It is narrow, not long but you need to be straight... More

"Old Brack", as the locals refer to it, is an historic golf course in San Antonio, Texas. It is an old-fashioned, tree-lined course that is sometimes quirky but always fun to play. Tremendous golf history has been forged through the years at Old Brack. It is a municipal golf course that anyone can play, but many of the greats of... More

Brackenridge offers 2 types of games...the front 9 is very tight with narrow fairways off the Tee, several holes with Bunkers not only on the sides but across the width of the fairway or in front of the entire Green..requiring solid wedges to raised Green. The back 9 is more wide open with 3 holes requiring careful wedge shots over... More

Lots of mature trees line this course, the oldest public one in Texas. Lots of strategically placed bunkers and elevated greens. Our round was severely marred by the loud,continuous roar of the highway along all of the back nine. We enjoy golf in part for the chance to,be outside and enjoy. Because of the noise, we won't be back.

My wife and I recently made a tee time on the recommendation of a friend! Our friend was so RIGHT when he said this is an outstanding course. The staff were most courteous, we got off right on time paired with a great guy who plays there often which was very helpful since we'd never played the course. The fairways... More
