Scott Schreiner is owned by the City of Kerrville and was renovated in 1999 for $2 million. The facilities are dated but the course is great and the staff is very courteous. It is short at 6453 yards from the tips, par is 70, and the course is not real challenging, which means if you play smart, you will have a fun round and score well
The greens were recently aerated when we played, but they seemed like they would normally be in very good condition. They are average size, have minor slope and undulation, and not that challenging once you figure out the speed.
The fairways were in above average condition, some are side by side, and they are pretty open. The back nine is more fun with some very pretty holes, a couple challenging holes that require precise iron approach shots, and the greens seemed smaller and harder.
Pace of play can be a little slow due to a high number of retirees and older golfers. Bottom line - Scott Schreiner is a very good golf course, a good value, and a course where you can have fun and score well.
Rates: $26.00 to $40.00
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.
