There aren't a lot of trees on the course but this is a truly challenging golf club in a unique setting.

Westin La Cantera Golf

The Westin La Cantera hosts two championship golf courses. The Resort course is home to the PGA Texas Open and the new Palmer Course was added in 2001. These golf courses are absolutely beautiful and have received top honors and reviews in golf magazines throughout the US.

Golf Club of Texas

Located alongside the Briggs Ranch subdivision, the Golf Club of Texas is a beautiful course with a fair amount of water and challenging conditions. The course was designed by Lee Trevino and was built in 1999. The location is exactly on the tip of the Hill Country so the terrain is a bit hilly around the clubhouse but it levels out as you head south on the course. The Golf Club of Texas is west of San Antonio almost halfway to Castroville. I loved playing this course and highly recommend it to anyone interested in an afternoon of San Antonio golf.
