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.

Overall very good
I was very happy with the atmosphere there. Very friendly every one. Beautiful greens.
Another good round at FT Sam
I’ve played at FT Sam Golf Course numerous times and today was good as usual. The fairways are patchy, at best and the weather was crappy, but the greens were in good shape and very receptive. Played in about 2:45 so that is always a bonus.
Greens are in great shape
Enjoyed the round today. The greens rolled true. Only one concern is the bunkers. They are a little muddy and chunky. Just stay out of them I guess.
Course was in great shape for wintertime. Only a couple of greens suffering from this time of year. Love to play here once a week!
48 HOURS TO GET A PASS!
Don't play if you are not military!!!!!! You have to have a pass and GolfNow doesn't tell you that until you book your round. If it's inside 48 hours you are screwed!!!!!
Great course great price
Their twilight price cannot be beat. Two separate courses to choose from, both set in scenic San Antonio. Greens are nice, fairways might be nice, I never hit one. The rough was not so rough. I may have hit every tree on the course... gotta justify their groundcrew budget.
Went on a busy day. Shop got me out on the course in no time at all with no headache and the pace of play was great.
Change of Courses
Normally play out at Lackland as a member, but we have a few free rounds of golf out at Ft Sam, so we decided to use of of our free plays. It was during the wee, so easy to get on the course. We have played many of times before. Course is well laid out, easy to walk. The condition of the course has declined just a little, but normal cost are very reasonable, and now it is opened for non-miltary members
Enjoy the course and always book the same time offered...but usually get bumped due to scheduled tournaments. Usually try to play La Loma but also usually get pushed to the other course that is less enjoyable.
