Classic Brackenridge Park Golf Course: A San Antonio mainstay since 1915
SAN ANTONIO -- Brackenridge Park Golf Course has been an Alamo City mainstay since 1915, when legendary "Golden Age" architect A.W. Tillinghast laid the course out. Since then, it has hosted some of the state's top events and players.
The course has undergone its share of changes over the years, the biggest of which was construction of a new highway that commandeered some of Brackenridge's property in 1968. But last year it saw an extensive renovation and redesign project. Most holes were restored to their original Tillinghast specifications. Six rectangular greens and deep, large bunkers were added. Brackenridge couldn't be lengthened much because the property is only 113 acres.
Though just 6,200 yards from the back tees, Brackenridge still demands your attention for a good score, thanks to tight fairways, bunkers and raised greens.
