Rating 73.0

The La Loma course is one of two 18-hole, championship courses at the historic Fort Sam Houston. The facility hosted the Texas Open in the '50s and '60s, making it the only military facility to ever host a PGA event. La Loma has its fair share of challenges but overall the other course at the club, Salado del Rio, is the more demanding of the two. The fairways are tree-lined but not as tight as on the other golf course, lending a more forgiving quality to La Loma. The greens are medium in both size and speed and there are strategically placed bunkers throughout the course. Fort Sam Houston also has a practice chipping green and a lighted driving range for golfers to use.

Great course.

One of the best military course I have played. Hats off to the maintenance staff. The course is always ready to play. Keep up the great work.

Awful conditions

I have seen this course in good condition. Not today. Perhaps the worst condition I have seen a course in within the last few years. I am hopeful that more money will be spent on the course going forward. The carts and driving range were great — but more effort needs to be put into course maintenance. Standing water in bunkers due to overwatering. Some bunkers were basically rock instead of sand. Fringes were bare. I’ve never seen the course this bad and only a few that approached this condition. If they let it go much further, they might as well plow it under.

Bad greens

On a good approach shot to the green, you should be rewarded but the greens were dry patched up some were terrible

Greens were very inconsistent. Staff was great! Bunkers needed sand. Good deal for the price!

Fun Course

I always enjoy playing military courses and Ft Sam has two very nice 18 hole courses. Great pro shop with a friendly staff and an excellent restaurant.

Don’t play Salado golf course. The greens are terrible.

Inside golf people are rude and don’t like golf now or tee time people. They don’t honor the course or tee time you book. Save your money. This is a glorified goat track.. if your looking for cheap golf this is your place.
