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.

Fun Course to Play

This course had just the right amount of challenge. There are enough bunkers and hazards to make you think your way around the course.

Fun With Wind

Winter conditions made for fast running shots when in the fairway and the greens were speedy as well but true.

Pace of play was very slow, course marshals should be used to move people along. Longer times between tee times could also be employed to avoid pile ups on several of the holes.

Cold day but excellent play

Green s were fast, layout is good, but the pace of play was horrible, too slow. It took 3 hrs for 9 holes, the guys in front did not have any golf etiquette.

Enjoyed the day

The course was in good winter shape. The starter was very courteous to show us some tips about the course. Layout was quite wide open with few trees, but still enjoyable golf.

Solid course, slow play

Course is very dry. Green are in good condition, but pace of play is brutally slow. 4 hour 15+ mins minimum.
