Bucket list

This has been a bucket list course and it did not disappoint. Everything was perfect from the facilities, staff in pro shop, practice facilities, cart had ice in the cooler, trees in the holders, even the beverage cart was used multiple times on there front and back. I will be back again.

Fabulous round of golf

The pro shop and start her staff were exceptionally friendly and very knowledgeable. We are fortunate enough to get out early on this particular day and we’re not paired with anyone. Teeboxes,, fairways and greens were in great shape. Green speed average. Nice elevation changes, A very pretty course, cart girl , snack shack, bathrooms all available. A nice course for low and high handicappers .A must play when you’re in the San Antonio area. Would love to play this course again as well as the sister course ~Palmer course. Would definitely come back to play again..

Palmer Course

i was a little disappointed with some of the grass conditions around the greens.
the back 9 definitely needs more courses knowledge than the front nine.
the golf carts were very frustrating g in there speed- SLOW - and restrictions. i hane played many Palmer courses and would not say this layout is consistent with those. good course, front different than back.

Beautiful course

Exceptional staff. Lots of elevation changes on every hole. Play the right tees for your handicap or suffer the consequences. Greens have lots of slope and are exceptionally quick when on the wrong side of the hole.
Rough is extremely challenging. One of the best courses in the hill country. Will definitely be back!

Not worth your money

These greens were the absolute worst I’ve ever played anywhere and I’ve played at some rough places. The course itself had a cool design. The pace of play was awful, multiple parties stacked waiting on every hole on a Friday afternoon. Ended up leaving on the 13th hole, couldn’t take it anymore.

Great experience

This was our second time playing this course after 12 years and it was definitely worth every mile we drove from Austin. Great course design, beautiful sights. Everything is neat; the club house, the carts, fairways and greens.
Staff is also very professional and kind.
Overall a great experience worth repeating once in a month if you live in the ATX/SAT area and a must if you are visiting San Antonio.

Incredible course

Played Palmer today. The facilities, the course, pace of play were near perfect. The staff was over the top friendly and helpful. They even went searching for my wife’s 9 iron and FOUND IT!

We had also played the RESORT course last week and it was equally as good. Both these courses are challenging and have lots of elevated tee boxes and grand vistas.

I will definitely be back!!

La Cantera Palmer

Highly recommend this course. The layout and elevation changes make it a challenging and unique play. Great staff. The range at the Palmer course is Irons only. Beverage cart was frequent.
