Solid course

Paid $60 to play. A 6 pack of beer for buddy and I was $40. I wouldn’t play for more than $60 though. Not much of a challenge. Course was in really good shape. I liked the pitching practice area. Clubhouse was really nice.

Good shape. Crazy it’s $120 a round

Best I have seen the greens and course at Tapatio since I have lived in Boerne: not sure why the round is $120 on a Saturday. This course is fun, not crazy long.but very well laid out:

Overrated

Paid $120 to play a below average course in the shape it’s in . The fairways are decent and have potential but the greens are horrible And very inconsistent if you can find one that actually has good grass and not half dirt . There’s much better courses out there for this kind of money

Granted, there was a freeze recently, but the course is dead as a nail. Greens brown as refried beans and fairways as soft as a tennis court.

Inflated Fee, but Whose Isn't

First time I played Tapatio, they were putting the roofing on the condos adjacent to what is now #10 tee. So I've seen it at its best and its worst. I'd say it's at about 85% as good as it's ever been, which means they're charging more than it's worth. I know it's a Covid thing, with green fees being up all over the place. Doesn't mean I have to like it. This should be a $50-$55 weekday course and $60-$65 on the weekend. But the new facility is nice and the staff were pleasant.

Rough greens

I have played this course many times in the past. I hadn’t been there in about a year. The greens are in terrible shape. Not sure what happened

Pace of play was awesome!!!

Found a last minute hot deal and non of my golf buddies could make it so I paid for a single. Driving range was good and practice areas were well attended to with range balls and chipping area balls. I warmed up quicker than expected so I went to the starter about 20 mins early. He sent me off on the front behind a 4 some. I caught the group on hole two and the ladies were playing quickly but waited for me to finish to let me go ahead since I was a single. Next group of 4 did the same. I encountered 3 groups of four and all were very courteous and let me play through. Course was in great shape and the greens had a few bumps from some not supposed to be there grass that was growing on them. Overall it was a great round with a very fun course and in really good shape. The people I encounter made this far more enjoyable than most of my Sunday afternoon rounds in San Antonio.
