Winter Golf

Cart path only- better off walking with a cart or bring a sunday bag. Greens just ok. The course is suffering from drought conditions in addition to it being winter. Course has seen better days.

Cart path only all the time

The course is very dry so they are cart path only all the time. We played in a short time but think that was because mostly members were playing and knew the course, hopefully they get some rain and allow carts back on the course.

Beautiful Course

First time here it was great. Would have given a 5 star but water levels were low so some of the features of the course didn’t shine through, not their fault though. Will definitely play again.

Not worth it

The course is terrible. I call before I book the round just to double check. The info I received was all wrong. The fairway was all dirt no grass and the green was terrible. Honestly fairway conditions was acceptable but the green was no grass mostly bumps and dirt. For hot deal $80 not worth it. Never going back

Beautiful Course

What a great golf course. If I was going to be a member somewhere this would be it.

Greens are not in best condition, but it was a tough summer.

Love this course!

Cart path only

Wasn’t informed the course was cart path only until we got there and about to tee off in order for them to restore the course conditions…it had nothing to do with weather. Terrible. For the price they charge, this shouldn’t be the case and there should be notification provided when reserving. Fail on GolfNow’s part too.

Nice Course, but felt rushed.

We had a good time overall. Beautiful course with a great blend of challenges. Only complaint was the twosome dressed like Duck Dynasty behind us. They hit into our foursome a couple of times that got a little close. An occasional "fore" or blow on a duck call would've been appreciated. Despite the knuckleheads, we'll definitely go back!

Decent course, over priced for the area and conditions

Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort offers a golf course with a strategic and engaging layout, making for a pleasurable day on the greens. However, my enjoyment was tempered by the visible impact of drought conditions. The greens and water features, typically the jewels of a golf course, were visibly suffering, reducing the overall aesthetic and playability.

While contemplating a membership, I discovered that the membership fees are listed openly on the website. This transparency is unusual for high-caliber clubs, where fees are often part of a private discussion, adding to the exclusive nature of the membership. The open listing of fees felt at odds with the typical discretion and exclusivity I associate with country club memberships.

My visit further emphasized my concerns about the value proposition of becoming a member. There seems to be little incentive; the course is accessible to the public most days, and the restaurant is always open to non-members, diluting the 'members-only' advantage.

During my exploration of potential membership, I didn't experience the courting I expected. The walkthrough was basic, lacking the warm, engaging pitch or membership perks one might anticipate when being wooed by a club. Post-tour, there was no follow-up, no invitation to experience the club as a member for a day, not even the offer to comp a round of golf — a gesture often extended as a nod to potential members.

The dining experience, while satisfactory, didn't ascend beyond the ordinary, especially when compared to the vibrant culinary scenes at comparable resorts.

In sum, while the course itself offers some delightful rounds, the lack of care shown to the course under harsh environmental conditions and the uninspired approach to membership leaves me unconvinced. Given the price point of around $250 per round and the visible drying up of both the greens and water features, my visits will be infrequent. There are plenty of other clubs in the area more eager for members and less affected by drought, making them more attractive for regular play and potential membership investment.

Currently cart path only

They are taking the right steps to protect the integrity of the fairways while we're in this incredibly challenging stretch of 103+ degree weather.

Friendly staff, nice layout (fun), and the greens were in great shape. If you have limited water... water those.

Tapatio Springs Golf Resort

I've played at this course over the last past several years. It seems as though the course is not being managed and maintained properly over the years. The fairways are dried out and patchy with dried spots and with weeds. There were at least 6 greens that were in terrible shape. This course needs the attention of the greens keeper before it is too late to salvage. If this course is in this condition, they should fair warn you when paying and checking in at the pro shop, not have it as a surprise and disappointment as you play.

Love this course!

I’ve always loved this course and have been playing it for the last 10 years. I’ve always believed Tapatio is one of the best tracks in central Texas.

Overall the course is in excellent condition except for a couple of greens that were in disrepair.

The only reason I did not give higher scores is because there were a number of really large groups (5-7 players) playing all together. I did not see a single course Marshall ensuring an appropriate pace of play.

Had a great time! This would have been a 5 star experience with some appropriate course marshaling.

Very Disappointed

When my best golf buddy came to visit for a few days (he and I played together for years in Durango, CO) I made a reservation to play at TS because of the uniqueness of the course layout and the course condition (it had been several years since I had played there). First impression was the guy behind the desk in the pro shop was not particularly friendly and the reservation I had made through the website was a Golf Now reservation (which I didn't know). The credit card I used had not been charged and it was a big deal to get that straightened out. Then we got to the range and there were no balls. Had been some kind of tourney that morning and they "were out". Then went to the practice green and the condition was terrible. Said we hope the rest of the course would be better, but it wasn't. Noticed early on the bare dirt patches in the fairways, ant beds, weeds and general poor condition. When you kill the ants you have to spread out the dead beds or they just stay there and look ugly. Way too much money for the very poor conditions. Ruts near the card paths, no water on the course, awful greens, very poor conditions everywhere. Very disappointed especially for $85/ My buddy was not impressed with TS or now Boerne in general. Really bad experience.

Nice course but greens are rough.

Overall it’s a fun course, not terribly long but a lot of fun. I was surprised with the green conditions. Several greens had some really dead spots and one green almost entirely sanded. I guess there is some invasive grass making its way into the greens but definitely not under control yet. They were Playable but not what you expect for $100+ a round on the weekend. Fairways were great, pace of play of crazy good for a weekend. We finished 18 in 4 hrs almost to the minute. Practice and warmup area is really good.

Great course! Staff was super friendly & the course was in great shape. Pace of play was a little slow due to cart path only but overall i will be coming back time and time again!
