Putting around San Antonio

Texas provides the perfect weather for golfing, and San Antonio has a multitude of gorgeous locations to choose from. Each course provides its own unique obstacles and amenities for pros and amateurs alike.

Palmer Course at La Cantera

The views at La Cantera are some of the best in San Antonio. Nestled in the Texas Hill Country, this resort overlooks San Antonio from one of the highest points in the city. Palmer Course provides visitors with a luxury golfing experience which has earned it several rankings and awards, including #2 on the “Top 30 Resorts in North America” and ranked #8 by Golf Week for “Best Courses State-by-State.”

The Palmer Course at La Cantera was designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer. With 18 holes, this course challenges all levels with its downhill slopes, lakes, and fairways. Regardless of how you’re golfing, your day spent on the green at La Cantera will be beautiful. As you make your way from start to finish, you’ll encounter dramatic waterfalls, picturesque views, and majestic landscapes. When you finish your game, be sure to enjoy the luxurious clubhouse.

The Quarry Golf Club

The Quarry Restaurant has a menu created by Chef Jason Dady and is one of San Antonio’s hidden culinary gems. The breakfast, lunch, and happy hour menus are a perfect way to finish off your round.

The Alamo

No San Antonio town guide is complete without the Alamo. It’s free to visit, and you’ll have the opportunity to explore it all, either on your own or via a guided tour. Due to its popularity, reservations are required for all Alamo visitors — but it’s an educational and thought-provoking outdoor experience for the whole family.
