Slow play and ineffective staff

The pace of play was extremely slow and the marshal felt he could not do anything about a group that slowing everyone down.
The restaurant service was supper slow. After waiting for their fastest options for 45 minutes we had to take them with us to the course.
The comment form the manager at the proshop was "Sorry that happened to you"

Nice Course!

My wife & I enjoyed this course. It was still in winter condition and just had a couple inches of rain which left course conditions less than best. Also the course was full of players causing slow pace of play. Good for the course, not so good for us! However, we enjoyed our day!

Hi "uBGUU1452BG" Thank you for your honest review. The course has received a lot of rain these past few months which hasn't necessarily been in our favor. We appreciate the great feedback and hope to see you again once the course drys out.

Not like Target... Expect Less. Pay More.

I wanted to enjoy this course. It was a course I actually saw constructed when I grew up just a few miles away. Well, I finally came back and I was disappointed. First, the staff were a mixed bag of morning emotion. One guy in particular (the starter) made it a terrible experience for my brother and I. We are both in the military and San Antonio is a military city. I set this particular tee time to bond with my brother and it was his first time golfing so he doesn't know all the unspoken rules of golf. Before we even tee' off, this staff member lays into us about how we should dress, act and have, basically berating my brother right in front of me. I'm furious. It's Memorial Day weekend golf and you are treating service members like that? Then this guy leans in on me and says I probably don't know the first thing about golf and is trying to one up me about his golf knowledge and prestige. An opportunity to spend with my brother who I don't see often and this guy ruins our morning before we even start. Anyways, the course proved uninspiring and the greens were in fair shape at best. Number 7 was awful covered with sand and several patches of no grass turf at all. Overall, not a pleasant experience from a course that makes you shell out $90 a round and has a grand resort on it. The clubhouse and amenities are impressive in appearance, but definitely lacks charm or something.

The gentleman in question will be put on notice and receive a complete write up. We hope that this one experience will not effect you playing in the future.

Great fairways, horrible greens, slow pace

Greens punched several weeks and and are still very bad. Fairways were very good. Staff encounters were all positive. For $65 through Golfnow on a weekend morning, it’s a good value. The rate through the pro shop is $125, which would have been ridiculously overpriced.

As far as the layout, it’s a little gimmicky. Several big dog legs and blind shots. Would be a fun course for a scramble, though.

Walked

Not resort friendly.

This is a challenging course which requires shot placements. A lot of Par 4 tee shots are through narrow shoots or to narrow fairways. Greens have a lot of levels and slopes. Didn't think the overall quality of the course was worth the price.

Nice layout, greens need some attention!

i enjoyed the course overall, however, some of the greens have bare spots and need some attention. I played the blue tees 6,400 yes, sine the choice was that or 5800 to 5,900 yards. There are a couple of holes that you don't know what to hit off the tee. Lucky I played with a couple of members, but it was still hard to trust hitting on an unknown line and hope you hit the correct distance.

The cart paths are two way in spots. They go around some curves and up or down hills. I saw a collision while I was there and the one cart wound up with a broken axle! Be careful on the turns and slow is a lot better for your well being. The signs on the path and on the GPS give you plenty of warnings, you just need to pay attention to it.

Disappointed

Very disappointed in green conditions and tee boxes. The price should be adjusted for course conditions and at green aerification times.

Good price for a fair course.

Played course February 21. Course was in decent shape, greens were fair - some had some bare spots. Fun course to play though with mix of solid golf holes, strategic par 4's, wide fairways. Pace of play was good. Beverage cart service but no restaurant open for an after round beer/drink which seemed very odd for a Hyatt Hotel of all places.

Nice course but...

I have played the HHC courses twice now, and each time the play time was agonizing. With all the current advertisements on Golf Channel and during golf broadcasts about speeding up play, they don't seem to be getting the message. I didn't see a marshal once during either round plus slower groups do not let you play through. The course conditions are definitely about average, despite the construction on a few holes, but one other irritation is the lack of maintenance with the traps and players not raking afterwards. If you can get a cheap tee time, play it! If you cant, it's not worth the extra $$.

Look for deal

Greens have had sand added to them not to log ago so it seemed the were needing to fill in. Tee boxes have been sealed recently too. Nice place to play and was not backed up. I would look for a deal on golf now before paying full price.

Service great, course so so.

Service and staff were top notch, but the course left a lot to be desired. Bag moved from bag drop to cart for us, off to the range. Balls included. A few puts and we were off. Tee boxes were shaggy and beat up. Noticeable overseeding that had not grown in. Fairways were in good shape, but around the greens was very thin, lots of poor lies to be found. Then the greens, burnt out, with a few showing shaggy overseed. So you went from 11-12 speed to 6 or 7 if the overseed took. Between thin lies off the green and mostly rock hard greens, not much fun for shortsiding yourself. Think I had 5 three putts.

Lost prestige

I’ve been to this course many times over the years. This time it really just completely lost it’s prestige of being a “resort” course. The course has not changed, the routings are the same, however; the greens are slow and rough and the fairways are not as lush as used to be. Bunkers are hard packed and not raked and smoothed out. The range is no longer provided with unlimited range ball. One would get a tiny bag of beat up range ball and that’s it.
Since I used TeeOff app and got a hot deal that saved me some money otherwise, it would be even more disappointing. The staffs are cordial but not very friendly nor helpful. The starter is more interested in chatting with friends than to inform players of their approaching tee time and get players in position to tee off.
Like I said, this place no longer has the prestige of being a “resort” course yet it continues to demand the resort course fees. This course is just a regular public course that over charges anymore.
