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.

Fun course, with some challenges. Love it! The staff was awesome from the pro shop, the drink cart ladies, and an excellent marshal who made his rounds to assure everyone was enjoying their round. I'll be back and bring friends!
good challenging course
Really enjoyed playing here. The greens are in great shape and the course is good challenge. The only minor downside is the sheer amount of deer poop on the course. I know there isn't much the course can do about that but it was a distraction.
Cold morning to strart, and the 4-some in front of us played at a slow pace, but the weather warmed up and the the round was overall enjoyable.
Nice course but slow pace of play
Played in January, so the course was not at its best, but tee boxes, fairways and greens were in good shape. Course offers a lot of Hot Deals on GolfNow so it was busy on an early Wednesday afternoon. Waited several minutes on most tees and in the fairway. Quit after 9 holes because it was too slow.
Hi, thank you so much for leaving us with your review and feedback. We value our customer experience, so your review is extremely important to us. We will make note and we hope to see you back at Vaaler Creek Golf Club!
This is the 5th time I have played Vaaler and enjoyed playing it again. Course was in very good condition considering the time of the year.
Only issue I had was the amount of 5-somes on the course. They were relatively fast but still holding up a foursome. Martial said there was only one 5 some on the course but when we continued playing we ran into another 4 groups that had 5 people.
With this being a Sunday with a 1 pm tee off expect to have delays as the local golfers that belong to this club obviously get priority on what they want to do!
Beautiful course always enjoyable
Always in great condition love this course. Pace was extra slow today and no marshal to help but still enjoyed it.
Top Shelf Experience
This course is always amongst my top 2-3 public courses in the Hill Country. The course is in great shape. Golfers seem to “leave the course in better shape than they found it”, as there was not a single ball mark on any of the 18 greens and there were very few divots that didn’t contain replacement sand. There is sufficient challenge for golfers of all skill level given the distances from each set of tees, hazards, and general layout. Overall, a great experience.
Great design and fast true greens
Loved this place! Even though the much of the grass was dormant it was in great shape. We had a frost delay but everything was handled great. Lots of deer on the course. I drove 1 hour from Austin/Lakeway and was well worth it! Play this place.
A must-play course
This is a challenging, but fair course layout. The fairways are reasonably forgiving and we’re in great shape. The greens rolled true and were quick. This is one of my top two Hill Country favorite courses ... a must-play.
TOC QUALITY/Half the cost
I’ve played Vaaler many times. Today I hosted my golf buddy to his 74th bitty. First time he played.. He loved it.
Course is in great shape. Only one of the open to public courses in The area that offers on course beverage carts. Staff are extremely helpful and courteous.
This is my favorite course in the San Antonio area.
Worth the drive.
