La Loma at Fort Sam Houston Golf Course
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.

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.
Greens were very inconsistent. Staff was great! Bunkers needed sand. Good deal for the price!
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.
loved it... simply and to the point
Great course to play... was not overly difficult. Good course to work on the mechanics of the game (which I need...lol)
Must have military pass
Despite playing @ Fort Sam 2 weeks prior as a non-miliitary golfer, I was turned away and not allowed to play despite having prepaid for the round. GolfNow is NOT clear about this requirement, and I've notified them. Very disappointed with the curt service from the clubhouse.
Arrived to find the range is closed for renovation. Nice to know that ahead of time. LaLoma course was closed, so we played Salado. My first time. An interesting course with a fair amount of trees that demands accuracy.
