La Cantera Resort is home to two 18-hole, championship courses that wind through Texas Hill Country. The Resort Course 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.

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.

Great course

Great course. Lots of elevation. Challenging but fun. To bad there was a slow group that slowed down about four groups behind them. Golfers please be considerate and play to 4hrs.

Slow play

We had to wait on 15 of 18 holes. The group in front of us was like talk to each other like they were the only one’s on the course. Then they would hit two to three balls off the tee. We said something to them they act like no one was behind them. They need a marshal to keep pace going.

Outstanding Course

From the moment we arrived until we finished a sandwich at the 19th hole after the round, we were impressed. The starter was outstanding, the course was beautiful and in great shape and the cart service was excellent. Arguably the best course in San Antonio with by far the best service.

Not worth the price

this course used to be in great shape with great services, at a reasonable price (around $70 on weekdays) now is twice as much ($130) and with no one at bag drop, no one cleaning your clubs at the end of round like before, no drinking water on course, they blame it on Covid, but all other courses in town are back to normal without the big hike in price. pace is good 'cause there's not that many people playing. mainly tourist, they're leaving out locals with those prices.

First time playing at this course. We had rain few days back and green were in perfect shape. Breath-taking views and well maintained greens. Greens were fast than other courses around SA.
Will definitely try to go there again when price is right.
