Hill Country Golf Excursions
Monday, December 19, 2011
With the recent winter rainfall, we've had some relief from our drought and Hill Country residents are hopeful about wildflowers and greenery returning next spring! Golf courses are no exception, and we're hoping for a return to health for all the grass on the fairways.
The Hill Country offers an array of world-class golf courses, some public and some private. The legendary Boot Hill and top rated Cordillera Golf course are two of the most illustrious member's only courses. Other great local courses to play through are The Buckhorn in Comfort as well as Comanche Trace's Hills and Valleys, also, The Creek Courses prove to be challenging and fun.
The Buckhorn is a public 18- hole, par 71 golf course located here in Comfort, Texas. Designed by Art Schaupeter, the Buckhorn opened in 2000. An easy-going and fun course, it can be pretty busy, but choosing to start on the back 9 alleviates that problem. The staff is friendly and very helpful making it an enjoyable experience. Personal favorite holes include the 13th. With rates starting at $18 a round, The Buckhorn is an affordable and fun play. For information about tee times and course rules, please visit www.buckhorngolfcourse.com.
Comanche Trace, the master-planned development outside of Kerrville is home to more than its fair share of golf-fanatics, who, come hell or high water, will not miss their tee-time. This group of die-hard players has come together around a beautiful and truly challenging course. The Comanche Trace golf courses include The Hills, The Valley and The Creek. Tom Kite/ Bechtol/ Russell designed the Hills and The Valley 18-hole course. With the Creek nine hole course designed by Jay & Carter Morrish. Along with the championship courses, host of the Valero Open Qualifiers for 2011 and 2012, the courses also include a 15-acre practice facility with access to hitting stations, short game area with its own dedicated pitching and putting green as well as fairway bunker and greenside bunker for practice. The courses were built to take advantage of the natural slopes and rises of the challenging Hill Country terrain and to equalize the effects of wind, another challenging obstacle.
Comanche Trace's courses are private, but Riven Rock Ranch retains a Comanche Trace Club membership allowing guests to play the courses. For more information, please visit www.comanchetrace.com.
