La Cantera Golf Club opened in 1995, when it also hosted one of the oldest PGA Tour events, the Texas Open. It is no wonder the spot was chosen, with its numerous natural water features, mature oaks, and limestone rock outcroppings it provides the perfect terrain for a challenging round. There are also 75 white sand bunkers strategically placed throughout the golf course. In combination with the spectacular views provided by the course’s elevation changes, the course has quickly gained favor as one of the best public-access golf courses in the country.

Great and challenging course

I am normally a very góod putter and greens reader but i could not make one.. for sime reason i read right to left and everything was left to righ. Could not believe it and made that mistake time after time. Trust it will break right.
Overall great ggolf course and i will definetly play it again.
One thing to improve the grass cutter guys were always working without the adequate behaivor. A detail but i hit one of the in the middle of the fairway that might cost me at least 20 yards and in other ocassion the just move while i was trying to chip in. I dont think they needed to do this while the course was not that crowded

Resort course was great!

Course was in great shape with lush fairways, well kept sand bunkers (sadly I know first hand, lol) and we’ll kept greens. Tee boxes were ok as well.

Beautiful view and well maintenance

This is the first time we played here. Both driven range and resort course are very well maintenance. It is not only people friendly, also wildlife friendly, we saw three deers at the hole 17. I will definitely will come back to play here.

Awesome Course

Everything about this course is excellent, ( a bit pricey) but overall a great experience, we would play here every weekend if it was a little less expensive. Fairways are in great shape, green on hole #7 is in bad shape, but all the rest are in perfect condition, very fast but role true.

Probably the best roller coaster in the area

I've played the Resort course at La Cantera many times, all the way back to my high school days when it was still the host of the Texas Open. It will always have that cool factor for me.

But all these years later I still find it's a super enjoyable golf course, full of (literal) ups and downs and some really memorable shots.

You don't get much more memorable than the short par 4 where the tee box gives you a vista of many of the rides at Fiesta Texas. Why ride a roller coaster that lasts 60 seconds, when you can play the Resort course?

The whole experience at La Cantera is fantastic and both courses are worthy of your time in San Antonio.

Fabulous round of golf

The pro shop and start her staff were exceptionally friendly and very knowledgeable. We are fortunate enough to get out early on this particular day and we’re not paired with anyone. Teeboxes,, fairways and greens were in great shape. Green speed average. Nice elevation changes, A very pretty course, cart girl , snack shack, bathrooms all available. A nice course for low and high handicappers .A must play when you’re in the San Antonio area. Would love to play this course again as well as the sister course ~Palmer course. Would definitely come back to play again..

Not worth your money

These greens were the absolute worst I’ve ever played anywhere and I’ve played at some rough places. The course itself had a cool design. The pace of play was awful, multiple parties stacked waiting on every hole on a Friday afternoon. Ended up leaving on the 13th hole, couldn’t take it anymore.
