Rating 73.0

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.

Nice layout with massive potential

Nice layout but the course is getting too many rounds of play per year for the ground crew to keep up with needs. Could be a hidden gem and appears that a dues increase would greatly benefit this facility.

Great staff that is always friendly, helpful, and courteous!

Great course, but soggy

Not sure why they are watering so much, especially #17. The front apron is so wet that the grass is dying. The whole course is pretty soft, but the greens are in great shape an roll true.

Vaaler Creek is a hidden gem

As always, Vaaler was a marvelous place to play. The turf was in fantastic condition, especially for late December a week after 3 days of hard freezing temperatures. Greens were smooth and rolling true. Good rough in most areas, though not severe and good shots were properly rewarded with a scoring opportunity. Started off as a single and joined up with a threesome on #8 and still managed to finish the round in around 3 1/2 hours. Absolutely love this course.

Great planning for freezing weather

Vaaler Creek got hit with 2.5 days of bitter freezing weather 12/22-24. The weather warmed up on 12:28 and I decided to play but expecting a mushy course. The ground crew must have taken great preparation to keep the course playable. The course looked like nothing had happened. Great work guys!

Great course

Great challenging course in excellent condition. Tee boxes, fairways & greens are all over seeded rye so course is green everywhere except the rough. Greens were absolutely pristine. I'll be back soon

Stupid tee & pin placements

Whoever setup the tee boxes and pin placements is a moron and should be fired. The tees were located on sloped and uneven sections of the tee box. Par three holes were especially patchy so it was hard to find a good spot to hit from. Pin placements were a joke, but nobody was laughing. Hole #2 pin was literally 2 yards from the back of the green. I love this course because it’s challengng, but the setup took some of the fun out of it.
