The past year they have built a beautiful new clubhouse and built a really nice practice facility with a second putting and chipping green and reworked the practice bunker.

They rerouted the course by eliminating hole #12 and added a very challenging short par 4 on the front side with the two level green positioned out in the lake with a narrow strip of land connecting the front to the fairway. Not quite an island green but it plays much like one. Degree of difficulty is high but good shots are rewarded. Good drive and good wedge = birdie. Poor wedge = double bogie or worse.

Overall the changes have transformed a nice, sleepy little course into one of the best in the San Antonio, Texas area. Much better than some of the $50-$75 courses around the area.

The beautiful Alsatian Inn is only 2 miles away with great restaurant and spa. Play a round and send the wife to Sea World with the kids about 10 miles from the Inn.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
