San Antonio hosts a PGA TOUR event—the Valero Texas Open, fourth-oldest on the PGA TOUR schedule which takes place under warm and sunny skies that set the stage for great play.
Play where the pros play. San Antonio is home to two Tournament Players Club (TPC) courses owned by the PGA TOUR at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. AT&T Oaks hosts the Valero Texas Open and was designed with input from golf legend/architect Greg Norman and current player Sergio Garcia. Pete Dye and veteran player Bruce Lietzke designed AT&T Canyons.
There are also plenty of other courses that provide a luxury golf experience. Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa has 27 wildflower and rock-strewn layouts by veteran architect Arthur Hills. Just across from SeaWorld® San Antonio in the midst of its own lavish complex, the Hyatt offers plenty of activities such as a world-class spa and a four-acre water park to please every member of the family.
The La Cantera Resort & Spa offers countless amenities for golfers. Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish produced the first La Cantera layout, The Resort Course, named the “Top New Public Course in America” by Golf Digest when it opened in 1995. Arnold Palmer followed five years later with his own La Cantera Palmer Course layout, giving the resort two outstanding public courses next to Six Flags® Fiesta Texas.
One of the most unique courses in San Antonio—or anywhere else for that matter—is The Quarry Golf Club, so named for the back nine holes designed totally inside the old quarry pit of the former Alamo Cement plant. Located halfway between the San Antonio Airport and downtown, it’s a visual and golf triumph by architect Keith Foster.
Thomas Walker, a protégé of golf legend Gary Player, designed Canyon Springs Golf Club on one of San Antonio’s highest points, guaranteeing an abundance of sweeping views. The course also offers a great green grass challenge on the site of a former Pony Express stop.
The Republic is the newest public course just south of downtown while Silverhorn offers an exceptional stretch of finishing holes by pros Scott Verplank and Willie Wood.
It wouldn’t be San Antonio without plenty of history involved, and golf is no exception. Brackenridge Park, the once private estate of George W. Brackenridge, was the site of the first public 18-hole course in Texas when Brackenridge Park Golf Course was built in 1916. Designed by A.W. Tillinghast, it was also the first with true grass greens and first home of the Texas Open in 1922. “Brack” (as the locals call it) is also home to the Texas Golf Hall of Fame.
Just south of downtown is the city-owned Riverside Golf Course, where future U.S. president Teddy Roosevelt encamped his troops while training for his legendary charge up San Juan Hill.

Get Set for Big Time Ball
San Antonio is a sports lover’s dream. The five-time NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs regularly play before sellout crowds at the spectacular AT&T Center just east of downtown. Owned and operated by the Spurs, the San Antonio Stars is the city’s entry in the Women’s NBA. The teams not only share a building, but are also working on creating the same winning dynasty. The Alamodome, in downtown, is a also sports magnet for major sports action including the Valero Alamo Bowl. The Alamo Bowl takes place each year and showcases the #1 Pac-12 team against the #1 big 12 team after College Football Playoff selections.
Minor Leagues, Major Fun
For value-priced family fun, it’s hard to beat the minor league baseball San Antonio Missions, who play their spring and summer home games before crowds at Nelson Wolff Stadium just west of downtown. (A seat in the picnic pavilion and the nightly Puffy Taco race, where a mascot of the team—dressed like a giant taco—races a young spectator around the bases, are regular rites of passage for Missions fans everywhere.)
