The La Loma course is one of two 18-hole, championship courses at the historic Fort Sam Houston. The facility hosted the Texas Open in the '50s and '60s, making it the only military facility to ever host a PGA event. La Loma has its fair share of challenges but overall the other course at the club, Salado del Rio, is the more demanding of the two. The fairways are tree-lined but not as tight as on the other golf course, lending a more forgiving quality to La Loma. The greens are medium in both size and speed and there are strategically placed bunkers throughout the course. Fort Sam Houston also has a practice chipping green and a lighted driving range for golfers to use.

    I thought the course was a great value for $32. Course was in very good shape. Most greens were in great condition. I will definately play there again.

    Courses are good. Nice designs. The greens could stand to be better kept. Almost always hairy and too slow. The putting green is especially poor. However, the most disappointing thing is the attitude of the pro shop staff. Their disposition can best be described as arrogance and ignorance. It seems to be a common theme with at least the two main characters in the pro shop. The head pro and his mini me assistant. He is especially jerky. This is not a one time thing and I am not the only one to have experienced it. This poor behavior has been consistent for at least the last 3 to 4 years. I, for one am amazed that they have lasted this long. They must be able to hide their true selves whenever the powers that be come along. My suggestion is: Try to enjoy the nice design and beauty of the property in spite of the negativity which abounds in the pro shop. Just get in and get out as quickly as possible. If they act pleasant, don't be fooled. It's is nothing but an act.
