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.

A Great Course Played on a Beautiful Day

We played 27 holes on a near perfect Texas February morning through afternoon. I am an older, learning the game, golfer while my friends are younger and more experienced players. We all had a great time. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The greens are in great shape. The green on number 7 (I think) is daunting. Pin placement was extreme at the top left and anything short of reaching the plateau at the top 20% of the green rolls back off the green. One of my friends putted up the face of the green and unfortunately did not reach the plateau. His ball rolled back down and completely off the putting surface.

Great course

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.

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.

Nice Course

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!
