The best testament one can give The Golf Club of Texas (formerly known as The Golf Club of Texas at Briggs Ranch) is that it hosts some big local tournaments.  The large greens and tee boxes are some of the very best San Antonio has to offer.  This is truly a high end facility. If you have not been out to enjoy this course you really need to.  The place is all greened up and with the unique landscaping it's just a real pretty experience with great golf.   The golf carts are outfitted with GPS which gives accurate distance to the pin and shows the contours of the greens.  This track combines Links Style golf with Hill Country golf, giving players a taste of both types of golf.  The course is among the best that San Antonio has to offer. The senior staff is very experienced and the service is all that you would expect at a high-value public course.  The new clubhouse is beautiful and features a full service restaurant. After playing a round, you will really enjoy just sitting on the porch and taking in the view.

Directions:  20 Minutes from downtown. Take U.S. 90 west to Texas 211 (2 exits past loop 1604) and we on the right.  From downtown take 90 west to Texas 211.

Great course, super slow pace.

The course was in phenomenal shape, greens were a little hard but rolled great. 4 1/2 hour round was too long for a Monday round. I didn’t see a single marshal on the course but at least the beverage cart came around. Still a fantastic deal for the price.

Don’t go on Sunday’s

Pace of play was horrible as there were kids who were either learning how to play or just getting started. There was a fivesome and that should not happen on a weekend. We ended up quitting after 10 holes and did get a partial refund.

In great shape

I've played this course a few times over the years. Sometimes it's been good, some times so so, but this time around it was in the best shape I've ever seen it. It was very windy, and since the course it's hilly and with little amount of trees, it was pretty challenging. The majority of the course is made up for zoysia and native grass, which is perfect for the amount of sun it gets. All 18 holes play unique and are very well designed. I highly recommend this course!

Pace of play?

The last 2 times I’ve played - people insist on playing through, ok not a problem. Then they spend 15 minutes looking for their ball.
Let me state I’m not that great, bout a 20 handicap, but I do hit fairways.
Tee times are in 10 minute intervals but starters want to cram 4 people into each 10 minutes. Don’t bother booking a tee time they just cram you into a single or double.

Was thinking bout getting a membership here but I just want to relax and hit w/o being pushed, by people who’ll spend the whole day lookin for their ball.

Grounds crew does a great good keeping fairways and greens up to par. Have no problem w/ the course itself. Really like this course but am not able to enjoy my round w/ all the “scratch pros” on this course.

Disappointing

Friendly greeting by starter and course in better condition than in prior years. Then it went downhill.
No beverage cart on course on a Sunday. Restaurant used to be top notch. Very disappointed in responsiveness and value. Pace on front was fair. Making the turn, they put 2 twosomes out in front of us on #10. Not cool. Waited on every hole on the back. Seemed short staffed. Staff that was there other than starter was not helpful.

Great course. Was so well kept! Everything was great except the three steers on the 6th hole. That was a little scary.
