Quarry Golf Club
Keith Foster designed this San Antonio masterpiece, which opened in 1993 and has since garnered quite a reputation. A unique course carved out of an abandoned quarry, it placed among the top ten of "America's Top State Golf Courses" in Golf Digest magazine. It offers some of the best views of the city, but don't get caught sightseeing, or this course will eat your lunch. The front nine is pretty open and filled with streams throughout. Upon making the turn, you quickly find out how the course got its name. Nestled within the abandoned quarry, several holes have greens that are bordered on three sides by 100-foot cliffs, with trouble waiting on the other side. In fact, the names given to two of the holes on the quarry side, "Escape from Alcatraz" and "Reload," pretty much tell the story of the back nine. Call for tee times and more information.
Although the food and service were very good, the whole experience was marred by a couple sitting at the patio in full make-out mode. Repeated complaints to the waitstaff and finally someone who claimed to be the manager (no nametag or id) yielded "There's nothing we can do." Well, there's something I can do - That's why I'm posting this review.
Don't eat at the Quarry Restaurant unless you're OK with the right of people making out and management that is unwilling to take action when diners complain. The icing on the cake? That couple diem't order anything to eat - It looked like they were just having sodas.
The pictures don't do it justice....The view of the Quarry is Amazing !...The Quarry Golf Club is my new favorite golf course. If you're in San Antonio or even close by you need to experience this course....
Played the Quarry club on 3/28/08 it was a fun experience (partly becuase of our group) backup on several holes was quite long. The course was in so-so shape. Several holes on the back nine were badly damaged by water. Some greens were great, others were just okay. I've played much better courses in the San Antonio area for less money. I actually scored extremly well, but I can still on give it a B rating. Good but not great.
From the time you pull into the parking lot, to the final putt on the 18th hole, you will just be in awe at the beautiful scenery and well-kept grounds! Are you from out of town and would like to play, but the significant other needs something to do? Well, there is a huge shopping center and theater just blocks away!
I'm a recreational golfer still working to break 100, but this course is definitely a lot of fun for any skill level. The entire course is very well maintained. There are quite a few hazards, from water to the towering cliffs lining some of the fairways which makes this course a bit challenging. But, if you are looking for a course that gives you a great bang for your buck- the Quarry is IT!
One little tip though- if you plan on going in the summer, if at all possible, start on the back 9 because once the day starts getting warm, it gets pretty hot in the lower levels of the back 9.
This place was a great time from the time we pulled in till drinks after the 18th. The service was phenominal and attentive care we recieved was exceptional and really made us feel special. I'm booking my company Christmas party here for this season.Thanks again Quarry!!
