“Luxury golf at bargain prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Of the two courses at the La Cantera Resort, this is my personal favorite. I play here twice a week on average and generally come at a time of day when I basically have the course to myself. From the folks in the clubhouse: Tyler, Brian, Judd, Glen and Laura, to the chief starter, Don, all are welcoming and very helpful. Because of their courtesy and professionalism, it is like a country club with the great facility and the wonderful golf. The course is almost always in fantastic shape and when the greens are cut and rolled, they are among the fastest in town. The course has the best views offered by any in San Antonio and Arnold Palmer has designed a terrific test for the golfer. The wind is almost always a factor with which to be dealt, especially on the par threes. There is a two-for-one membership which guarantees the holder the lowest rate available daily. There is simply no better deal in golf here in San Antonio.

“Wow, what a Golf Course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012 via mobile

This was our first stay in San Antonio and we wished to finish a lovely weekend with a round of golf. So glad, that we chose the Palmer Course. We played on a very well maintained, challenging course with stunning views. We loved the architecture of the clubhouse! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The with ice water water soaked towels we were given after the round, were a great idea. Before teeing off, we got the instruction cart path only, due to heavy rainfall the night before. Just started the back nine, when the marshal came and told us, that we are now allowed to drive to our balls, 90 degrees rule. What a courtesy! Thanks for a wonderful day on a lovely golf course.

“Great course and great views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

The course was in great condition and the view was terrific. My favorite part was the GPS system. At the tee box the GPS gives you hints on how to play each hole. For example, it will tell you the best approached shot to the green is from the left hand side of the fairway. I would played this course again.
