This is a challenging course, and one of the most beautiful in Texas. From hill tops, all San Antonio and beyond open before you. This is a beautiful course molded into a naturally beautiful setting.

There are a few holes with blind shots. It is nice that the cart tells you when it is clear to hit. There is a lot of up and down playing this course. The bunkers are basically a thin layer of dirt which is different.
