Lovely course which favours a fade shot

The course was generally in good condition although some of the greens are still recovering from problems in the summer. The fairways are generous and certainly favour a right handed soft fade. There are some memorable holes with great views.

Tough in the wind

We had 15-20 mph winds during the round, which made approaches tricky. Many holes are relatively wide open and inviting for driver. Starter made a big deal about the GPS having distance to pin, but don’t trust it. On 18, GPS had on location at the front, but it was in the back, almost 30 yards further according to my rangefinder. There are a few gimmicky holes, and some with steep up and/or down slopes. Pace of play was right about 4 hours, which was nice.

Fun round of golf

This is easier than Palmer course that we played before it’s close but still challenging enough.

course has great lay out and scenic views

we most likely paid the same price per round as 4 some in front of us, they had a very slow pace and they fell well behind the group in front of them. needless to say, we had a 5 hour round of golf. that 4-some enjoyed their day of leisure but we suffered behind them and the ones behind us also suffered. where was our value for what we paid. they had very poor course management, did not play ready golf, several times left their carts at 150 marker and walked to green, finished, then had to walk back to get cart. the golf cart had gps so the pro shop can see the pace of play and did nothing

Bag Drop Staff

The bag drop staff badly damaged my clubs but showed no apologies at all. My clubs got so many scratches and my putter has to be replaced. The worst was he didn’t even say anything to apologize it to me at all.
All the rest was great and perfect. A nice course to enjoy your holiday.

Very good experience

My wife and I played three straight days at the Resort Course. We have played here many times over the years and were very concerned after reading recent course condition reviews. The course from tee through fairway is in excellent shape. Despite recent drought conditions the greens were in much better shape than expected. Full coverage on all greens (except 12 which has been re-sodded and is currently shortened to a par-3 with temporary green in fairway). The greens rolled a bit slow but not so much as to take away from enjoying the rounds. Pro shop, clubhouse staff, and refreshment cart staff were all extremely nice and professional. Broke our hearts to see Palmer Course brown and shut-down in the distance, but we will definitely return to enjoy this course that was a PGA Tour host for many years and has some fun holes with great views of San Antonio.

Way Below standards!!!!!

This is a course I have played many times since 1998. Today was beyond awful. I knew they had aerated the greens earlier in the week because of the warning on golf now. The guy in the pro shop reminded me at check in. First the range was in rough shape, like everyone was backed up 10 feet just to get some grass to hit from. Second, when the starter came to get us, he stated that hole 12 was down and we would be playing to a “temporary green”. Well it was just a 100 yard to a random flag in the fairway, not a puttable green. Bad thing is that 12 is one of the best pat 4 on the course. 3rd nearly half the greens were almost unplayable because of patchwork sod job. Some greens were almost 1/2 rough sod, unputtable. It was embarrassing, as I am a resident of San Antonio and people are still being charged over $100 to play this. Golf Now should be refunding our green fees over this. I played with two men from Mexico and they were clearly disappointed at the conditions as well. I was lucky enough to find a “deal” at $60 but the men I played with paid nearly $200 for their rounds. I attached a photo of one of the greens. This is totally unacceptable as I am a frequent user of golf now. Do a better job of vetting courses.

Great Time

From the time you pull up till the time you leave it’s a 5 star service. They made sure to express their apologies for the condition of a few greens as the drought has hindered the grass from growing adequately. Other than that loved it!! Also the view on hole 7 was AMAZING!! Have your phone ready for some pictures.

Patchwork Greens

Everything but the greens was in great shape. However, about half of the greens have major sections that have been recently resodded and the sod squares are hit or miss as to whether they are surviving. All of this makes putting a challenge, unless you hit them all within 10'. I do not.
I know it's hot, but other areas in some fairways were still soggy after 11:00 a.m, so they are watering.

Great time

Tuve una gran experiencia con mi hijo.
Nuestra salida era a las 8:40 am pero como la de las 8:50 am estaba disponible nos la ofrecieron para poder jugar solos. El campo está en perfectas condiciones y las personas que trabajan ahí son muy atentos.

Thank you for playing La Cantera and providing your feedback. We are aware of the herbicide damage we received on the greens this spring. We have been informing our guests prior to arrival. We have started to resod the needed areas June 22nd and will continue throughout the month. The greens will be vastly improved in 2 weeks. Thank you again.

Love the Atmosphere

This was a great experience. However, my date and I were pushed a bit in the front side despite being five to 10 minutes ahead of pace for a time. We were about a hole behind so some of that’s on us. The greens are in terrible shape. Course management is doing the best it can, but even sodding the worst places won’t keep management from shutting down the course to renovate the greens due to human error with chemicals. Still love the course - Hole No. 7 is a treat.

Thank you for playing golf at La Cantera and your nice comments on the atmosphere. We will be closing the back 9 for several days over the next few weeks to sod the remaining areas on the greens. The greens will be in normal condition in early July.

Everything was great, but the greens. They are un-playable. If you can look past this issue, the course has amazing views. The greens look like they need to be completely re-done. It's really unfortunate.

Thank you for playing La Cantera recently. We acknowledge the greens are not in good condition. The greens are improving and we will be sodding all the areas not filled in over the next few weeks. We should be back to normal conditions on the greens in early July.
