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.

Playing thru

Course layout lacking. Too many irons off tee on par fours. Too much cart time between holes . Felt lost most of time due to road travel between holes. Had 8:30 tee time booked,arrived at first tee 8:20 as threesome was leaving box. Starter said there was a mistake because the group had 4 players not three and he would work me in somewhere. I said it looks like one of the carts had a ride along because only one set of clubs on cart. Starter said wait on box and he would go check. Sure enough one was a rider only and he said tee off and join the group. Awkward way to start the round to say the least. If I book an 8:30 time a week in advance, check in at 8:00 arrive at first tee 8:20 and this occurs there must be communication problem between pro shop and starter.

Fun Course

Really fun track. Overall fairly short, but enough hazards to get your attention. Greens were fun with a ton of undulation. You need to know where to leave your approach shots.

One suggestion if you are playing for the first time. The driving range and first tee are not close to the clubhouse and directional signage is lacking, so be sure you inquire where things are. Unfortunately, even if you have a general idea of where you think you are headed, there needs to be more signage.

Now that we know the ropes, we will definately be back!

Pleasant Day

Vaaler Creek's two nines were built at different times and appear to have been designed two by different designers. The front is tighter. The back is more expansive. Both sides feature a nice variety of holes. The course conditions were very good, with lush fairways, good bunkering and healthy greens that held well-struck shots and were moderately fast and true. The staff was pleasant and professional. The carts were new and had plenty of juice. Concession prices were reasonable. What more can a golfer ask?

Great course

This course is in excellent shape it’s like playing in a upscale course coating hundreds of dollars except the cost was only 40 dollars. I cannot talk enough about the pace of play nobody holding us up and no nipping at our heels. It was excellent can’t recommend enough.

Worthy course, for now

Overall positive, but constructive criticisms follow:
- many of the pins were placed in extreme locations.
- the greens seemed slower than normal.
- too many tee boxes were rough and/or crowned.
Practice range and practice putting green are good. The starter is friendly and engaging. The cart person is delightful. Sad to see so many homes being built on the course; in time, it will be just another course in the middle of a neighborhood.
