Vaaler Creek Golf Club
Conveniently located near downtown San Antonio not too far from Austin, Vaaler Creek Golf Club has a memorable layout of gently rolling hills dotted with creeks, ponds and lakes. The course begins with a challenging front nine and then eases up a bit on the back nine, but overall it is a formidable test. The greens are tricky and demanding, especially on the front nine where there are some severe slopes and undulations. The back nine greens are a bit flatter but they still require careful attention. The rolling, contoured fairways are lined with trees and there are deep bunkers strategically guarding the greens, but luckily there are only seventeen of them. Water hazards come into play throughout and there are also several doglegs and blind shots if there wasn’t enough to keep you on your toes.

Great course, horrible staff
Booked with another couple for our significant others birthday round. Beautiful drive in and was not dissapointed with the course. The staff other than the lady running the cart were absolutely not interested in customer service. The gentleman in the clubhouse couldn't even be bothered with giving more than single word answers. The woman running the snack bar was very standoffish. She was pleasant enough taking our money but really could have cared less about assisting otherwise. Overall customer service was trash. Spending almost 300 to play should at least get you a cart that the gps works in and a smile from the folks running the place. Doubt I will play there again.
Great layout and nice greens
Loved the price too for this layout. Only complaint would be the tee boxes which weren't very good. Not mowed right and not level. Also, one green was really messed up but that was it. Would play again.
Tee boxes are all humped over. They need to be flatted. The mowers are pretty aggressive. Cut right down to the dirt. Leave enough grass to hold the ball up.
Golf at Vaaler Creek
To be fair we did follow the slowest group in the Scramble tournament so it was slow for 8 holes. Once we they were gone it was a breeze. I love the course the ride out and we did get a "special". Certainly in the top 5 of favorite courses to play.!
Great Texas Hill Country course
One of the best kept courses in the area. Beautiful surroundings. Lush fairways. Challenging layout. Always makes for a enjoyable round.
3rd time playing in 3 straight weeks and I’ve not had a GPS in the cart that works. Come on guys - if you offer the ability make sure they all work. Sucks!
Good course but punched greens
Overall a good course but recently punched/extensively works on the greens. Paid full price and wasn’t told about the greens. It was impossible to putt in this condition with overgrown grass and punch marks on every single green. I understand the course needs maintenance but that should have been known when booking.
Thank you for taking the time to review and leave your feedback of your recent round with us. We would like to apologize for any inconvenience you experienced at the course with us. Your feedback is extremely important to us. It is always our utmost goal to provide our golfers with a fun and enjoyable time and apologize if we missed the mark. For further resolution in this matter, please feel free to reach out to our staff in the pro shop. We hope to hear from you soon!
Great course, great value
Course was in fantastic condition, weather was hot but it is August in Texas! Several scenic vistas with a creek running through the property. Excellent value for the money. Will definitely play again!
Will be returning to this one, ranks up there with one of the most fun I’ve played in a while. Just be ready to plan and place your shots in order to prep for the next t one. One green was in bad shape but they told us when checking in, other than that the fairways and greens were in perfect shape.
If you have a Hill Country Passbook it's an excellent value.
Vaaler Creek is one of my favorite courses. Always in good shape. Not too challenging not to ease. Always feel good when I get done.
