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 just north of San Antonio fantastic views!
Course is a little gold mine with fantastic views VERY well maintained golf course! Hats off to the fairway/greens maintenance team!! Play has always been on time our early.
Compared to Wimberley JJRANCH, Rebecca Creek, Canyon Lake, Vaaler Creek is in best shape. Others have succumb to current drought conditions including Hidden Valley Marble Falls.
Great course, great finishing holes, in great shape for severe drought conditions. Staff always friendly and accommodating.
Another great round at Vaaler Creek
It’s great to play on green grass, raked sand bunkers.and surrounded by nature. Staff was friendly and helpful. Be sure to ask for Senior or Military rates if they apply to you.
Nice and easy
A few hidden surprises not shown by GPS. Otherwise, fairways and greens in good condition. From forward tees, the course appears straight forward. Lots of dog legs right.
Coming in east of Austin - be aware of the traffic lights. Never coordinated - you’lll always catch red and it will slow you down. Plus, be aware that trying to turn left on 281 is a disaster. So give yourself at least an extra hour. 290 between 71 and Dripping Springs is that congested.
Course is in unbelievable shape, as always. Greens were a bit slower at first but the heat helped speed things up as they dried out.
I think it was too early for the worker in the pro shop. Very short to almost rude when asked simple questions for someone’s first time playing. Told me the range was shut down so I didn’t buy range balls. Went by the practice range and many people on it, guessing members. I am not a member but I guess if I was the service would be more friendly. Great course and starters we very friendly.
