Tapatio Springs Welcomes You to a Beautiful Redesigned Golf Resort
Tapatio Springs welcomes you to a world-class resort located at the gateway to the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Less than an hour’s drive from San Antonio’s International Airport you will find some of the most beautiful scenery in Texas. Nestled in this hilly countryside is a world-class golf resort which offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. This magnificent property built in 1981 has recently gone through a multi-million dollar face-lift. The centerpiece of this restoration has been the resort’s golf course, “making it among the ‘best in the State’ once again”, according to George Strait, owner/partner of Tapatio Springs.
Some improvements to the course include:
- 72 Tees leveled and re-sodded
- 54 tees relocated for better site lines and player alignment
- 16 bunkers removed and 47 strategically added
For avid golfers who haven’t played this course in several years or who have never played it, I suggest you schedule some tee time soon. You are sure to be amazed by the redesign which was done by Golf Course Architect, Tripp Davis & Associates. This 18-hole Championship golf course is truly a thing of beauty and a challenge for all golfers. Adding to the enhancements of your game are the Visage GPS Systems on the resort’s golf cart fleet. Providing touch screen monitors showing layout of the whole course, distance measuring, real time scoring options and on-course food & beverage ordering, golfers can now add the power of technology to their play and comfort.
The Practice Putting green has also been revamped giving players a larger green size as well as new grass and contours. The driving range has 20,000 square feet of new natural turf, re-positioned tee boxes for improved sight and target lines and new quality artificial grass tee tops. You get unlimited access to the driving range with range balls, and the putting & chipping greens during your stay. Every area of this golf course has been carefully thought out and meticulously refined to offer the ultimate game!
Tapatio Springs has been restored in other ways too. Like the new family pool with its kids slide, optional curtained off areas for private cabanas and the new Double L Bar for poolside dining. And there is even a second pool for “adults only” and a hot tub for even more relaxation. Both pools are heated for year round enjoyment.
La Cascada Table & Bar has been redesigned to give it a more open Texas feel. Foodies will love the fresh choices on the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Here diners can eat while enjoying the beautiful views of the golf course with its stately trees and hilly backdrop. La Cascada offers indoor and outdoor patio dining with pure Texas fare where Executive Chef Scott Cohen changes the menu with the seasons using whatever is available from local farmers and ranchers.
Friday & Saturday nights (February thru November) La Cascada Bar brings in cowboy soul of the region with live music and story telling from local entertainers.
Other amenities include the new fully equipped fitness area, Pro Shop, offering apparel, lessons, cart & club rental, enhanced wifi and new cell phone towers for better reception should you care to connect with the outside world while here.
This pet friendly property has large, beautifully appointed king and double queen guestrooms with patios. King Suites have a wet bar, dining area for entertaining and a sitting area with leather love seat, two over-size chairs, a coffee table and a big screen TV to catch up on news or the latest movies. Or you can book the George Strait Suite for the ultimate stay. With two master bedrooms and bathrooms, an extended terrace as well as a sitting area around your own fireplace, you will relax with all the creature comforts after a day at golf, hiking, nature/bird watching or sitting by the pool.
