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.

Part of the Alamo Golf Trail, this is the oldest course in the state of Texas and has been around for 101 years. It's a beautiful tree lined course, a bit narrow, but makes for a challenging and enjoyable round. They even have a Texas...More

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!

I used to play here all the time a few years ago before they did a major renovation and jacked up the green fees. I never really had the desire to go back because I could never envision the course being on par with the...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.
