La Cantera Golf Club (Palmer course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2001

La Cantera Golf Club is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, the Palmer and La Cantera Resort course. Plenty of golfing challenge, well-crafted designs and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of these courses.

The Palmer course, located one mile from the main La Cantera Hill Country Resort, is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout. This tree-lined parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.
