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.

Some good some bad

To start the course is absolutely beautiful. Fairways are well maintained and the scenery is great. The greens are hit or miss, some are really dry, some bumpy, and some are perfect. The cart path is brutal, holes and cracks everywhere so it’ll take its toll on your back. Pace of play is alright. If you don’t play fairly quick you’ll find folks on your tail (But maybe I’m just worse than everyone else who comes here). Some of the tee boxes are nice, some of them have rocks and little grass. Club house is really nice and the bar is nice to have right next to the range.
Fix the cart path and take better care of the greens and this could be a truly great course. Until then I’m not sure it’s worth the price they’re askin.

Great course for the money. I would not recommend playing this is the summer heat due to a lack of shade trees. It gets really hot in thr afternoon. Greens and fairways were great. Amazing value.

Nice course!

I really enjoyed playing GCoT. Layout was good, course was in good shape (a little dry but that’s expected playing after noon) staff was very good. It was my first time playing there but won’t be my last.

Pace of play is awful. Not a good value for the money...lately they have started to charge higher green fee than they deserve.

Not Bad

All in all, it was in good condition, can't give it a GREAT rating, some of the bunkers need some maintenance, especially some of the fairway ones.
