The Golf Club of Texas

San Antonio, Texas | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 7121 yards

The best testament one can give The Golf Club of Texas (formerly known as The Golf Club of Texas at Briggs Ranch) is that it hosts some big local tournaments. The large greens and tee boxes are some of the very best San Antonio has to offer. This is truly a high end facility.

The best testament one can give The Golf Club of Texas (formerly known as The Golf Club of Texas at Briggs Ranch) is that it hosts some big local tournaments.  The large greens and tee boxes are some of the very best San Antonio has to offer.  This is truly a high end facility. If you have not been out to enjoy this course you really need to.  The place is all greened up and with the unique landscaping it's just a real pretty experience with great golf.   The golf carts are outfitted with GPS which gives accurate distance to the pin and shows the contours of the greens.  This track combines Links Style golf with Hill Country golf, giving players a taste of both types of golf.  The course is among the best that San Antonio has to offer. The senior staff is very experienced and the service is all that you would expect at a high-value public course.  The new clubhouse is beautiful and features a full service restaurant. After playing a round, you will really enjoy just sitting on the porch and taking in the view.

Directions:  20 Minutes from downtown. Take U.S. 90 west to Texas 211 (2 exits past loop 1604) and we on the right.  From downtown take 90 west to Texas 211.

    The course is in excellent shape. Improvements made last year really paying off. I will only play the Golf Club of Texas and Canyon Springs from now on as these two have the best greens and fairways in the area. Very similar to the TPC without all the fuss. The people at GCT are not stuffy though.

    Course is over rated, no new improvements, City courses are in WAY better shape and are $30.00 cheaper minus Brack which blows this course out of the water.

    Save your money! It is WAY over priced for what you are getting. Supposedly they have new grass but there is still a LOT of weeds and carpet grass on the fairways. Other than the grass I couldn't tell any major changes. It's still the same layout but the front and back nine have been switched. Many of the greens were in poor shape and were bumpy. There is very little in the way of water stations so you better pack in your own because there wasn't a cart girl. The golf carts are obviously some old used gas carts that looked to be repainted but were slow, LOUD and crappy. And speaking of golf carts. You had better be ready to carry your clubs a LONG way in from the parking lot. You can not go out to your car to get your clubs and they darn sure don't have any one there to help you so if you're old or handicapped you're pretty well screwed.There isn't even a bag drop location out front anymore. Oh, and when you DO finally get to a cart you can't have a key until 10-15 minutes before your tee time. I left feeling very ripped off so I will not be going back probably EVER!! There are just too many better golf courses in San Antonio to play for that kind of money.

    Their big focus seems to be on trying to upgrade you to a players pass for an additional $99 per year to get you $30 off the green fee of $79. No way is this course worth $79. For that price you should expect a certain amount of amenities which are absent. At $49 it wouldn't be much more of a bargain. This is sad because at one point this was a really nice course to play. Their restroom facilities are still lacking with only ONE on the course located in the middle. Not convenient at all. While I will admit that the staff was pleasant but not particularly helpful.

    As a resident of the Estates at Briggs Ranch, I have been patiently awaiting the opening of the course. When we signed our lease we were told by the Management of the Estates the course would be ready in October 14', Then December 14'. Then February 15', Then April 15'...It is now Mid May. Saying that, I completely understand the golf course has no control over what the Apartment Management tells its potential tenants. Unfortunately it does reflect poorly on GCT..

    A Month ago we received an email stating the driving range and club house were open and that certain specials were being offered to us residents. I found this to be the perfect opportunity to meet the staff and work on my very rusty golf swing.

    Upon entering the club house I was greeted by Bo and instantly my preconceptions brought on by the opening delays were laid to rest. The Gentleman explained to me that due to recent weather there have been some construction delays. As I have been in the construction business for over 20 years, I completely understood. He assured me The Full course would be open June 15th 2015. Both Bo, the Management, and their staff have been extremely courteous and helpful. I signed up for the $45 Unlimited driving range and have been since, taking full advantage of its excellent value.

    The Club house itself is in pristine condition. Along with the lounge and the very attractive bar staff. I found the environment both friendly and relaxing. After hitting several poor shots on the range, I enjoyed an excellent meal prepared by the kitchen. Even without the Resident specials, the menu was reasonably priced and offers a unique variety.

    The last 10 months I have seen first hand the vast improvements being made to the course. The 16th green is located 50 feet from my back porch which by proxy gives me one of the most beautiful backyards in San Antonio.

    Other than the 5 foot Rattle Snake that showed up on my back porch when the clearing began and the occasional poorly timed back up alarms from construction equipment. 7:00am - 9:45pm on a Sunday. The same Alarms I hear everyday 50+ hours a week. I remain patiently waiting to reserve my Tee time and use the amenity of golf course access provided to residents of Briggs Ranch as our lease states. Which sadly was a major selling point for my decision to reside here and have been unable to use. I recently received my new travel orders for work . There fore, when my lease is up at the end of July I will be moving on to the next job.

    Needless to say, I will be extremely disappointed If the opening delays continue past mid June and am unable to play the brand new, beautiful golf course. Which I have been paying for, for almost a year now.

    Please understand that my experiences with the Club Management, staff and practice facilities have been TOP NOTCH to this point. The negativity within this review is the direct cause of misleading promotions offered through the Mansions and Estates of Briggs Ranch. Not The Golf Club of Texas or its excellent staff. Unfortunately due to the Partnership between these two separate entities. I can not in good conscience give 5 stars.

    I remain hopeful and look forward to being one of the first individuals to play this newly renovated and for what I can see, the most gorgeous Golfing facilities in the San Antonio Area....

    Our community had it's Christmas party at the club house and I had a chance to talk to the new course manager. They have been doing a lot of work on the course. We are waiting to see if the club house will be open in January 2015. The manager is shooting for spring 2015 to open the course. He has a lot of ideas and plans for the golf course. I've alwasys wanted to learn how to play. Since we live next to the course (Mansions at Briggs Ranch) I'm really thinking about taking up the sport. They are putting Zoyza sod on the fairways. It's really looking good out there!

    This course used to be one of the finest in the san antonio area, with a well stocked clubhouse, clean carts, and a near-immaculate course with manicured fairways and lightning fast greens. The operative words here are "used to be". The condition today was deplorable. Un-stocked clubhouse in disrepair, attended by a personality-lacking employee, range balls and carts were dirty; its nice that the putting brown is close to the driving range. I call it a brown because to be a green I think it has to have grass on it. The entire course had weeds and bare spots in the fairways, overgrown bunkers and terrible greens. Very dissapointing. Farewell golf club of texas...you won't see me again.

    How can you advertise this course with the comments you have? This golf course is not even good for a practice round.
