TPC San Antonio opened in January 2010 with two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by two of golf’s most innovative architects: Pete Dye and Greg Norman. The golf courses offer two different playing experiences. Norman, who collaborated with Sergio Garcia on The Oaks course, features narrow, tree-lined fairways. The Canyons course features wide fairways and panoramic views of the adjoining 700+ acre nature preserve. The Oaks course has served as the venue for the PGA TOUR’s Valero Texas Open since 2010.
TPC San Antonio is a private resort, only accessible to club members and their guests as well as guests of the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa. In addition to two challenging golf courses, TPC San Antonio features a 23-acre practice facility with two putting and short game practice areas as well as the best in golf instruction at the TOUR Academy. Whether you are seeking an environment for weekend golf or looking to entertain clients on the golf course, the possibilities at TPC San Antonio are endless.
The Oaks course at TPC San Antonio
The Oaks course, designed by PGA TOUR legend Greg Norman with player consultant Sergio Garcia, reflects the TOUR's departure from the modern tournament style course (expansive grass areas and spectator mounding) to a more natural look and feel, without sacrificing the fan experience making it very tournament friendly. The Oaks course plays host to the PGA TOUR's Valero Texas Open.
Key course features:
- Traditional design that balances narrower tree-lined fairways with wider fairways offering multiple routes (i.e., strategic options) to the green
- Intimate design with narrow corridors carved through oak trees
- Only 100 feet of fall from the high point of the course to the lowest
- Bunkering will reflect a natural, rugged "minimalist" with edges emulating the canopy of the native oak trees
- Native grasses and plant are prevalent throughout the course
- Par-72, 7,435 yard course, with forced carries on only two holes
- Downhill holes play into the prevailing wind, uphill holes play downwind
- Bermuda grasses were specially selected for this course to provide optimum playing conditions, diversity in color and texture and environmental sensitivity. Putting Greens are Champions Bermuda. Fairways are Tifsport Bermuda. Roughs are Bandera Bermuda. Collars, Approaches and Tee Tops are Emerald Bermuda. Outer Corridors are Native Texas grasses.
