Sports Fans: Four Days of Golf

A “perfect day” of San Antonio golf really isn’t a day at all, because there are just too many great courses to cover. But you can hit the highlights over the course of several days.

Day One

the Westin La Cantera Palmer CourseStart with breakfast at the La Cantera Palmer Course, where the grill overlooks the 18th hole at the course designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer. Here, a player can tackle both the Palmer Course, which features one of the hilliest layouts in the city, then (after a poolside lunch) trek next door to the Resort Course, once the home of the PGA TOUR’s Valero Texas Open. Dinner at the original Rudy’s BBQ in nearby Leon Springs is a great way to cap off your first night.

Day Two

Hyatt Hill Country Resort and SpaTackle the 27 holes of golf designed by architect Arthur Hills at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa. This is truly guilt-free golf, since the kids can splash happily in a meandering mile-plus Lazy River and any non-golfers in your party can head over to Windflower, the largest golf resort spa in the city. Meet them for lunch at Papa Ed’s Pool Bar & Grill or later that evening for s’mores cooked over the resort’s fire pit.

Day Three

Brackenridge Park Golf CoursePlay historic courses starting with Brackenridge Park Golf Course north of downtown. Opened in 1916 as the first public 18-hole golf course in Texas, it was designed by the renowned A.W. Tillinghast and was the original site of the PGA Winter Tour. For lunch, swing by Boehler’s Bar & Grille, housed in a 120-year-old leaning building. Then head south to The Republic Golf Course. End the day with dinner at one of the city’s oldest Mexican restaurants, La Fonda on Main.

Day Four

The Quarry Golf ClubStart out just south of the airport at The Quarry Golf Club and the highly unique back nine holes, designed by Keith Foster, set inside the pit of a former limestone quarry. After lunch at the Quarry Restaurant, it’s time to head north a few miles to play Canyon Springs Golf Club, located on some of the highest land in the area at the site of a former Pony Express stop. Dinner tonight is at another San Antonio original, the legendary Paesanos on the River Walk, with its celebrated signature dish, Shrimp Paesano.
