Olympia Hills Golf Course is very exciting and enhances San Antonio's reputation as a golf destination. A unique combination of natural topography and man-made mounds and bunkers make this a super course. Native South Texas vegetation and golf course grass seed formulations on fairways and greens will provide state-of-the-game playing surfaces. The views are spectacular, with several holes playing to greens well below the tees, while other lead to a significant rise to reach the putting surface. Fairways, which on some holes are tight, are often sloped and guarded by bunkers. The tips will not be played by the faint hearted, but with four sets of tee boxes, the course can be enjoyed by all levels of players.

Course needs maintenance

It's winter, but the course could stand some R&R. Maybe not have the course open everyday so some much needed care could be done on the fairways and cart path areas.

Not happy with course

First off we had to wait over 30 minutes to get a cart. The course looks like it has not been taken care of. I understand with COVID things have changed, but we have not had these problems at other courses. After waiting 30 minutes to get a cart, half way through the round 2 of the carts ran out of battery.

Slow play

Too many start times on top of each other. Also who thought a sixsome would be a good idea on a Sunday? It’s tough enough with foursomes.
Slow play you hurry up to wait. Most golfers can’t understand. They are not a pro. They do not need to line up simple putts like the pros. They do not need to take more than two practice swings.
It’s a game you are not in a championship match.
Other than that. The course needs an ambassador badly. Also the guy taking your tee time and payments needs to at least make an attempt at liking his job. His sour face and snap attitude at a couple of simple questions was enough to make paying customers mad.

Disappointing

Was excited to play again after many years but was disappointed. Our first cart didn’t make it off the first tee. Took awhile to get a replacement after the starter called it in. Second cart lasted half they no.9. On the way back to trade it died. After carrying clubs up the 75 degree hill to get cart no. 3, cart guys were no help and the club house guy said, “ Hope number 3 is a charm” after I explained how the round started and no service from the cart guys. Whoever owns this please read and 1-buy gas carts, 2- train workers on how a golf course is supposed to run and treat patrons. Lastly, the drink cart young lady was very friendly and helpful on my way back to my group. She deserves at least a $5 per hour raise compared to the other guys.

Horrific greens

I’ve played here many times over the years and the greens are as bad as I’ve ever seen them. Why would y’all not roll them if they are in that bad of shape? I would recommend saving your money and playing elsewhere for a good while. They are bad enough where they won’t be fixed for a while.

Also, no marshal or starter and the pace of play was pretty bad. Over 5 hour round

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. My name is Michael Olde and I'm the Pro Shop Manager at Olympia Hills. While course condition is always a high priority at any golf course, we have not been immune to the high number of play most courses face. For the last two years the course has made the decision not to "over seed" to allow the greens to return more naturally in the spring. Playability still remains for the most part, though the aesthetics of the course are not up to par. We hope you give us another chance in the future, please send an email to molde@olympiahillsgolf.com to further discuss. Have a great day!

The course needs a Marshall to assist with the pace of play.

Golf Goof

Paid for me and my brother using Golf Now. The counter guy ask how I was going to pay. I told him I already paid with the Golf Now App. He again said how I was going to pay and I repeated myself showing him the Golf Now confirmation on my phone. He said that it was only for the processing fee. I showed him again it was for $80 and includes the Golf Now fee for me and my brother. He still wouldn't allow us to play saying I needed to pay. I told him I'm not going to pay double since Golf Now already charged my VISA credit card. Finally he mumbled that we could go out but couldn't find the confirmation on their computer. This BS needs to fixed. Holding everyone up waiting behind me for their incompentance or maybe it was the Golf Now's Apps for not notifying the course.. Who knows but I don't want to go thru this nonsense again.
