I played two rounds at the Palmer Course and two rounds at the La Cantera course last week. I was amazed that the course was in such great shape for the middle of January. Greens were very consistent, fairways and tee boxes were excellent. I...More

The Palmer course was terrific. It was challenging, the holes were unique and varied, the course was in excellent condition. We'll play this course again when visiting San Antonio. We played on a Thursday at 11:00am and played in 3 1/2 hours.

This is a fun course with some interesting holes, and two quirky holes. The views on the back nine are spectacular---seeing the entire city. Greens were fast. Fairways were in good shape. Overall, I enjoyed it. It is expense to play. But if you're visiting,...More
