Texas State Golf Course ReviewTexas State Golf Course is owned by the University and is a nine hole course near downtown San Marcos. The course is perfectly flat and most of the holes are straight and side by side with some separation by trees. Water crosses three holes and can cause some problem, as can one of the five traps. The condition is as you would expect for a $20 course - not the best. Same for the greens which are flat and easy. But if you want to get out for a quick cheap round, this is the closest choice to San Marcos. This is also a good course to get the kids interested in playing - it's cheap, easy, and walkable.

Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
