Comments

Bone: This is where the Valero Texas Open is played. The sister course to previously reviewed Palmer Course at La Cantera. Some very beautiful holes on course, (No. 1 is the longest opening hole on the PGA Tour 640 yards) but the fairways and greens were suffering greatly from the drought conditions. Reading the greens is a bit more difficult due to fault line running through course. Very tricky at times. Staff was very friendly and professional at every stop at course. Saw the beverage cart 5 times during our round. Undulating multi-trapped fairways with risk reward opportunities on every hole. Tee lengths are more about ability to place shots than about being a manly man. 6,400 yards was very challenging. Course bordered with live oak and Texas mountain laurels thick enough to hide the doe and her fawn that ran across the 9th fairway. Traps were wet and had been mechanically raked, but not groomed. Very thick and tough to get out. Driving range is part of golf school located on premises and has many different targets and shots. A good course that with some rain would be one of the best in the Texas Hill Country area.
