Despite not remaining a premier resort as originally planned, Canyon Springs still offers 18 holes of spectacular public golf that wind through several residential communities. Gary Player protégé Thomas Walker laid this one out, and he's received accolades for the course's natural feel, despite the route through the homes. His design features giant oak trees; huge, undulating greens; prominent bunkering; and elevated tees. Throughout the round you'll face a good combination of split fairways, forced carries, and fairways that are both generous and unforgiving. Rock formations dot the landscape, and thick, gnarly rough awaits anything off the fairway.

Each side's finishing hole features a waterfall. The 18th is the most talked about-a 400-yard par 4 that plays from an elevated tee down to a fairway bordered by a creek and waterfalls.

The most intriguing hole is No. 18, a 400-yard par 4 featuring an elevated tee box and a fairway punctuated by a creek and waterfall.

Other notes: Both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine lauded Canyon Springs as one of America's best new public courses in 1998.

Getting there : From San Antonio, take Highway 281 north to Evans. Turn left on Evans and find the course 3.5 miles away.

    Very nice course in the Texas hills. The course is well maintained and the greens are in great shape.

    Staff are very helpful.

    Nice 19th hole with a good menu.

    The only drawback is that the distance between some of the tees obliges you to use a cart (which are all equipped with GPS) rather than walk.

    I have been golfing there for the past 2 years...and I gotta tell you, for the price you will pay, this is one the best golf courses in San Antonio. The greens are always in good shape, the fairways are always green, and the hospitality is second to none. I was tempted to give it a bad review just so I can keep the course to myself. LOL

    This is a 4 star if not a 5 star facility. The people behind the desk are very obliging. I called for directions twice and both times the young men were very helpful. I played there 2 Oct 2009 as a single and the starter put me with 2 others. This was a Friday and my senior rate was $42. For what the course offers this was a bargain. The course is in excellent condition. The greens were slow about an 8 but in good condition. Lots of forced carries with many.many trees. I played off the whites at (I think) 6300 and shot 85 as for the most part you can see the shot. The 2nd a par 5 is long but other than the tee shot you can see where to go. Very beautiful landscaping. I would recommend it to anyone.
