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.

Course was beautiful, starter was rude.

Starter was super abrasive to the group in front of us and rude, also was upset my partner wasn’t 15 minutes early so we can start early. We ended up starting right on time and paired up with another 2some and had a great time. Solid course, and club house.

What's going on with the fairways and traps?!

I stopped playing this course a while ago due to the apparent lack of care and maintenance on the course but decided to give it a try again with a cheaper rate on golfnow.com.
First, most of the greens were in fine condition with putts rolling true.
Second, for some strange reason they have decided not to mow the fairways on several holes creating a primary rough right in the middle of the hole! Ridiculous decision!
Finally, the traps have NEVER been in good shape there and very few people rake them. But now many of the traps are in worse shape with heavy grass over growth or lack of actual sand. It sure appears they don't care if you land in the traps. VERY DISAPPOINTING!
