Course is very nice. In great condition in May. It is a tight course but not very long. No water hazards on front 9, but plenty of carries on the back. No driving range.

This has to be one of the prettiest public golf courses I have ever played. It is located 5 minutes from downtown, The greens and fairways were in perfect shape and the course has a lot of character. Will definitely go back!

If you've seen my reviews of San Antonio you know that we had planned to just spend our 4 day trip on the River Walk with the misunderstanding there would be lots to see and do. Big mistake - if you don't drink or eat...More

Nice opportunity to play disc golf course. Played in a scramble format. Fun and enjoyable! Not overly hard, designed layout is fair. Would look forward to another opportunity to play this course.
