Texas Outside Rating - 8.5

Old Brack was opened for play in 1916 making it the oldest public course in Texas and home to the Texas Open for 37 years - you can play where Hogan, Sneed, Nelson, Hagen, and others won tournaments. Brackenridge Park is traditional Parkland style course that's short at 6243 yards from the tips but a renovation gave it some well positioned fairway bunkers and raised greens guarded by deep bunkers. A fun 18 with great conditions and an opportunity to turn in a good score. Brackenridge Golf Trail

Cedar Creek Golf Course is a hidden gem with a true hill country look and feel. The course plays through the trees, across meandering creeks, and up and down the rolling hills of northwest San Antonio providing great views, blind shots, dog legs, rock outcroppings, elevation changes, waterfalls, steep and deep sand and grass bunkers, and lots more. Cedar Creek will throw a little bit of everything at you and requires every shot you've got in your bag if you want to score well.

Mission Del Lago was designed by Denis Griffiths, who is the only American Golf Architect to design a golf course in St. Andrews, Scotland. You'll find wide sweeping fairways, big greens, over 100 bunkers, and windy conditions. All of that coupled with good conditions, reasonable rates, and some unique holes make playing here a fun experience that you won't find anywhere else on the Alamo City Golf Trail.

Texas Outside Rating - 8.2

Olmos Basin Golf Course is a very traditional Parkland style course with wide forgiving and flat tree lined fairways and some big greens. A meandering creek that cuts across several fairways, some dog legs, and the bunkers guarding the greens can cause some problems. Conditions are good and this is a course that offers several birdie opportunities and the chance to have a relaxing and enjoyable round with a very good score.

Texas Outside Rating - 8.1

Riverside's front nine was built in the 20's and the front was built in the 60's, which means you get to experience two very different nines when you play Riverside. One nine is shorter with tree lined fairways and the other nine is much easier with wide open fairways and some birdie opportunities. The course is just south of San Antonio and the San Antonio River splits both nines. There is also a nine hole par 3 course at Riverside.

Texas Outside Rating - 8.7

Willow Springs was a pleasant surprise and a lot of fun to play. The course is long from all the tee boxes, the conditions are very good, and you'll find bunkers guarding the large greens, a meandering creek that can come into play, risk reward opportunities, elevation changes, two 600 yard par 5's, and several dog legs both left and right.
