The Palmer Course is one of two golf courses at La Cantera Resort, it is named after its famous designer, golf legend Arnold Palmer. Firmly situated on 225 acres of Texas Hill Country, the golf course features plenty of elevation changes to keep golfers on their toes. There is also an abundance of mature oaks covering the course, requiring accuracy off the tees. The unique layout incorporates dramatic waterfalls, lakes, and numerous white sand bunkers throughout. La Cantera Resort’s Palmer Course has several signature holes, most notably the fourth hole. This demanding par 3 requires a long carry over a lake with waterfalls along the front of the green.

    The course,staff and other patrons were fantastic. I stumbled upon this gem while on business . I from the east coast and must say the hospitality was impeccable. A must play, tough but fair. Breathtaking views and well manicured. I played with one of the course regulars who made me feel right at home. Thanks to all for a great round iof golf!

    This is one brute of a course. Bring your A game, as this tract will surely test you. If you don't have a A game, a good pencil will have to do. Nothing nice here.

    Great layout and scenery. Tough to make par on most holes. Greens are tricky.
