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.

Played here twice the week of March 27th, 2017. Great green fees, very good staff. Lots of room off the tee. You will need to know where to be on the green. You find out when you get to the green. Then it's game on....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.
