Silverhorn Golf Club of Texas, located only 15 minutes from San Antonio's Riverwalk, has quickly gained a reputation as being some of the best golf in Texas. The layout covers 262 scenic acres of rolling hills covered in mature oaks and cedar trees. The challenging golf course features tree-lined fairways and carefully contoured greens. There are also lakes and creeks, both dry and wet, coming into play throughout the golf course. The front nine's signature hole is the par-5 sixth, which has 20 acres of water bordering the entire left side, while the back nine's signature is the par-4 15th, which is considered the toughest hole on the golf course. This 446-yard hole features an elevated green that is guarded by a large bunker on the left and two creeks crossing the fairway.

Love this course!

Always a fun course to play that will punish you with wayward shots. What really stood out were the greens. I don't know if they re-did them or what but they were in amazing condition, almost spongy.. the ball would hit and sit or even spin back.

Silerhorn review

My review of Silverhorn is the course was in excellent condition and the greens were also in excellent condition and we’re a little fast but still nice. The pace of play was pretty slow as it took over 4 and a half hrs to play. And lastly is I do know a lot of friends that would play there more if the price wasn’t so high. Over $80 for a weekend round is a little steep. And that’s why we only play they’re only once or twice a year

The rate of play and the lack of marshals to enforce slow play was enough for me not to want to go back.

I also don’t like there are no physical scorecards or water coolers, ball washers, club washers on the course.

Course was in good shape.

A Gem in Town

Great layout, narrow fairways with foliage too close makes it easy to loose balls. Fairways and greens in excellent condition with true roll on greens but inconsistent speed. Played 18 holes in 3.5 hours!

Pace of play

Be prepared to play slow. If there is a Marshall he is not managing the pace of play. We sat on tee boxes with the group in front of us waiting 10 minutes together. While we got to meet the people in front of us it was too slow. Management told me I played on remarkable time. I guess the people in front of us did too. We left after nine holes because we were estimating the back nine would take about 3 hours or more. By the time we got to hole ten three groups were waiting to tee off.

Cost and water

The price is twice as high as Trails course and similar to resort course. I would play Silverhorn if prices were in line with other course. What happen to water on the course?

How in the world can you justify having no water on the course! Using Covid to reduce costs and labor is only justification I can even imagine.

It’s South Texas summer .. the only other course I know of in the state with no water on course is owned by same ownership as SilverhornGC..
come on now!
