Length 6917 yards
Slope 125
Rating 73.1

Narrow tree-lined fairways and a creek which you often encounter make Lackland AFB's Gateway Hills Golf Course a fun round. The ninth hole, playing up a steep hill is a real experience as is the elevated green on 18. If you have a friend who is in the military and can get on, Gateway Hills Golf Course a worthwhile option with well manicured greens.

Gateway Hills Golf Course is laid out on 200 acres featuring extreme elevation changes overlooking San Antonio. The golf course meanders 6,900 yards from the back tees with many strategically located bunkers and a host of oak and mesquite trees. Gateway Hills GC provides a practice area that includes a driving range, putting green, bunker and a lob wedge practice grees

Fair price for decent course

I am a civilian and needed to get visitor pass. You must submit for visitor pass 72 hrs prior to your tee time. Also give time least 30mins to 1 hr at visitor center to get your pass. I was late by 1 hr.
Pro-shop was very understanding to my situation and gave me tee time right away. Fairways are pretty wide open. Green are bit fast and somewhat decent kept. I suppose for price $10-15 this course isn't bad. This course is also good for beginners or squeeze 9 holes after your work day.

Needs Work

The course looks nice from a distance but you will quickly notice the terrible irrigation, the poor bridges, and the sad attempt at making the course harder by using illegal pin locations throughout.

The majority of the course is hard dirt that doubles as concrete. The greens are either way too fast or way too slow; consistency is something that slipped the mind of the course designer. The sand traps are a combination of mud and kitty litter and the tee boxes are never level.

All in all, the course gets the job done and $20 for 18 holes with a cart is hard to beat. If they could get grass to grow and start to manicure the course a bit more, it would be much more fun to play.

Nice and affordable

There are no concessions or drink refreshment rovers so plan ahead. Just clubhouse crackers and such in the pro shop.
Being in a near drought for a couple years the fairways are beginning to show deterioration and on a couple holes worn to dirt in places.
The greens are in great shape though and the staff is friendly.
You must have a base pass so plan atleast a week ahead.

Basic course

My wife and I enjoyed playing at this course. We are new golfers and liked the few obstacles and challenges here ... although the steep hill on #9 was indeed challenging. We have played here twice and will return. It is a great value for the money.

Great Value

If you're looking for a well-maintained course at rock-bottom prices, look no further than Gateway Hills. Active duty military, dependents, and veterans with ID can access JBSA freely. Civilians must stop at the Visitor's Center. Everything about this place is very nice.

Course has unique hole layouts

Greens in great condition. Nice elevated 1st tee box. Some blind tee boxes, so a little dangerous. Old carts, no ball washer or gps, so bring your own. Military base. Need military I.d. or clubhouse has to issue you a pass. They did not the day I made the reservation. Luckily arrived an hour early and had to wait for clubhouse to send email to gate entrance. Warning about this on golf now does not appear until after you pay. I paid Thursday for Friday..only negative.
