Situated on the north bank of the Guadalupe River, Starcke Park Golf Course (formerly known as Max Starcke Park Golf Course) stretches across a scenic landscape of century-old pecan trees. The golf course is easy to walk being of mostly flat terrain. Trees line the fairways, making accurate tee shots top priority in scoring well. There are also strategically placed bunkers throughout the golf course and water hazards coming into play on a few holes for added challenge. Starcke Park Golf Course’s signature hole is the par-4 finishing hole, which requires a tee shot down a narrow fairway bordered by pecan trees on the right and a pond on the left. Considered one of the best municipal golf courses in Texas, Max Starcke Park G.C. also offers a practice and putting green and driving range.

Greens need some help.

The course overall is in good shape. The greens need help. Some are hard with very little grass. Others are ok.

Forced to retire by Corporate America

Enjoyed my time with my son that drove south over an hour to play here. Paired up with a couple of brothers that held their own. Great outing for the money, a true value in price and especially the comradery. I'm searching for the best retirement spots around me.

Fun Round

Easy check in and payment terms, and got right on the course at our scheduled tee time. Golf proshop staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

Have played this course of a number of times, and each time I like it a little better. Considering the winter we had, the course is in very good shape right now and continues to get better as we get into spring time.

It is a city own and operated park/course. You can tell that they are actually investing quite a bit of money in the maintenance and upgrades to the course, and I am very impressed with direction it is headed. It is neither difficult nor easy, it just seems to be a fair golf course. All level players should enjoy this golf course, and I look forward to playing it frequently this year.

Starcke

Beside the foursome in front of my twosome, who should’ve let us play through on number two and never ended up doing so, it was fine.

This has always been a good course and it looks like they are putting money into the water features. Hopefully it makes it even better

very spotty grass

If you can avoid all the construction areas/hazards then you will need to change your putting speed from green to green because some have grass and some have huge bare spots. They don't over seed the greens and that's a shame.

Greens not great

Lots of shrubs on the greens. Greens super compact and just keep the ball rolllllling. I’m sure will be better in the next few weeks. Love the carts with GPS.
