Cedar Creek Golf Course
Cedar Creek is a Finger Dye Spann-designed course that totals 7,158 yards in length from the championship tees. Consistently rated among the top ten municipal courses, it has become a favorite of tourists and locals alike. It is a popular course, and as a result, play is oftentimes very slow—it can sometimes take in excess of five hours to complete a round. However, the course is in such good shape, and the scenery is so nice, that you won't mind just taking in the sights as you wait for that slow group in front of you to get off the green.
Agree with the last poster. This used to be a great little hidden treasure, nice scenic course at $30 a pop. The city has turned the management over, and jacked the prices considerable. Today, for $52 you get a goat track. Groups going of about every 6 minutes (discouraging to see two groups ahead of you ON the hole.) GPS on the carts hasn't worked in 10 months, greens are absolutely horrible. Pace of play is right on 5 hours every weekend day. Rangers can be seen up on the hills talking on their cell phone in their carts, while the death march goes on below. This was not a one time deal for me. This course is 10 minutes from my house, but has just gone steadily downhill for the past two years since the management change. Use to be able to just kick back and say, well its $30. Now through neglect its a $20 course charging over $50. My advice is to search around a little more. For the money you can find much, much better golf. A real shame, but this course is over. To top it all off, the city has let developers strip the trees from all the land around the course. Where it use to be wooded, you now have views of expanses of gravel.
I used to play there all the time because it is simply the best hidden treasure in town. For $30 you can't find any better muni course than Cedar at anywhere. However, since the city of San Antonio decided to turn the management to a private company in '08, its value has gone downhill. The price now is no difference than other private courses and the shape is not any better than before. In fact, the City has turned all of its 7 courses to the same company to run. One of these courses now charges $85 to play! The worst part is now the daily operation of these courses are run by a bunch young "golf pros" (the company wants to cut down the cost). Now, the pace to play on weekends is probably 5 hr+.
If you are visiting San Antonio, this is THE COURSE you must play. For us screwed-by-the-politician SA golfers, Pecan Valley is probably the place to go.
I am from San Antonio and had not played this course for several years. Boy have I missed out! It is out of the city where it is cooler adn there are plenty of shady spots. The course is in exceptional condition and there is plenty of local knowledge needed to score well. Check it out!
Set in georgeous Hill Country surroundings, every hole is lined with rugged, beautiful hills. Although this course is very convenient to downtown SA, it nevertheless has an isolated feel. A beautiful and fairly challenging course with many interesting elevation changes. The first hole is a pretty awesome sight with about a 150' elevation drop from tee to fairway. The course is a real bargain too.
My wife doesn't play golf, but she enjoys going to the course just for the scenic cart ride. Not unusual to see wild turkeys cross the fairways. Once saw two mother turkey hens together and each had a long train of chicks on parade.
The only negative is the staff needs to have the crab grass removed from some of the greens' fringe areas. Other than that, the course is kept in good shape.
