Par 72
Length 6819 yards
Slope 126
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.

HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE

Stay away from this course!!! Made a tee time on Golfnow. When I git there I was told it would be hour and a half to 2 hour wait!!!!! There was a tournament going on and had to wait "brother"... Told him I made a golfnow reservation and was ready to start. Response "Didn't you read the fine print Brother?" "It says to call the golf course Brother"
" I am not going to wait 2 hours to play when my tee time is in 15 minutes"
"Not my problem Brother..." "Call golfnow and let them deal with it Brother"
"Website has wide open tee time on it!"
I told you NOT my problem brother...."
Give me a refund then
"Can't brother not my problem... call golfnow Brother to get a refund Brother..."
"Why did you give them all these tee times if you have a tournament going on??"
"It's a Federal computer Brother I can't contact them brother" "you have to contact them Brother, not my problem Brother!"
To sum it all up..... Government worker who doesn't care, Doesn't know how tee times work, could care less about customer service, and basically UNFIT FOR THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BROTHER!!!
All I can say is you have been warned!! Thousands of people unemployed right now and this is the best you can find on a government facility??????!!!!!! HE NEEDS TO BE FIRED BROTHER!!!!!!

Decent value, but the course is in rough shape

As the title states, for the money it’s an ok track. The issue was most of the course was hard pan. I found this out after jamming my hands during a 85 yard wedge shot. Pace of play was horrid. Several groups “playing through” who proceeded to show me how much of a hack they were forcing my round into 4 and a half hours of waiting. This was after their 10 am tee became a 0935 tee by their own doing. I was held up the entire time by a group of older men who decided to play loud music off their cart, poor course management, and overall terrible course etiquette. Needless to say I won’t be returning. This was one of the worst outings I have had in recent memory. With that said, if you’re a 100+ golfer, go. It’s cheap, course isn’t too difficult and the staff was great.

FYI driving range is mats only.

Brutal service

Played this course many times in last 5 years. Booked and showed up to play. Was told by a very rude club house attendant that military ID was needed to be on the grounds. Would have been OK with that if I hadn't played there 5 times in last 18 months including 2 months ago. Was told if we were in the course we would be handcuffed and arrested.
