Known as one of the best golf values in the San Antonio area, the Alsatian Golf Club offers an outstanding golf experience for a town of 2,700. This well-designed links-style track takes full advantage of the terrain, making use of every possible variation in elevation.

The club's reputation for having two completely different nines is well deserved. In fact, some say that every hole appears to have been built by a different architect. While the front nine is flat with fairways lined by immature trees, the back nine features mounded fairways lined with mature oaks and a creek bed that comes into play throughout the design.

After a standard opening hole, the challenge picks up with the long, par 4 No. 2. The tee shot on this hole forces you to lay up behind the fairway lake, leaving you with a 180-yard approach over the water and into the wind.

No. 13 on the back takes you for a ride: a 570-yard par 5 with an elevated tee shot down into the creek bottom, followed by an approach through a narrow fairway into an elevated green.

More course notes: The greens average about 5,000 square feet in size, are firm, and putt true. The clubhouse is small and simple, serving basic foods and canned beer. A bucket of balls and cart is included with the full green fee. While walking is allowed, club personnel strongly suggest that you ride, and the green fee will not be reduced for walkers. The facility offers completely closed golf carts for use during the winter months.

Getting there : From San Antonio, take Hwy. 90 west for 35 miles through Castroville. Find County Road 4516 (located at the top of a hill) and turn right. Look for the signs to the course.
