Vaaler Creek Golf Club

Blanco, Texas | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6864 yards

Conveniently located near downtown San Antonio not too far from Austin, Vaaler Creek Golf Club has a memorable layout of gently rolling hills dotted with creeks, ponds and lakes. The course begins with a challenging front nine and then eases up a bit on the back nine, but overall it is a formidable test.

Conveniently located near downtown San Antonio not too far from Austin, Vaaler Creek Golf Club has a memorable layout of gently rolling hills dotted with creeks, ponds and lakes. The course begins with a challenging front nine and then eases up a bit on the back nine, but overall it is a formidable test. The greens are tricky and demanding, especially on the front nine where there are some severe slopes and undulations. The back nine greens are a bit flatter but they still require careful attention. The rolling, contoured fairways are lined with trees and there are deep bunkers strategically guarding the greens, but luckily there are only seventeen of them. Water hazards come into play throughout and there are also several doglegs and blind shots if there wasn’t enough to keep you on your toes.

    This course is a true gem. It is the best course that I have played in Texas in the last six years. Hope they get the snack bar or restaurant open soon. All it is described to be and more! Worth the drive.

    Great course layout with state of the art touchscreen GPS systems. Course upkeep is awesome, and many shot making decisions off the tee. From out of state an played many course in SA area and this one is in my top 3 now. Short drive 35 mins north of SA. Only con; never saw a beverage cart & no sandwiches sold in club house.
