Golf may be the richest paying sport around the world, but it is equally enjoyable if you play it just for pleasure. 200 acres of lush-green, oak trees make up this visually delightful golf course. If Tiger Woods isn't your guru and you prefer Boris Becker, then they have an equally impressive tennis court. A swimming pool, restaurants, private banquet halls, and fitness centers also feature in the list of things-to-do-here.
Malibu Grand Prix offers all of the excitement and thrill of racing three-fourth scale formula-one racing cars. To drive the Indy cars, you must be at least 16 years old and have a valid drivers license—however, mini-cars are available for children between the ages of eight and 16. Before strapping in, drivers must purchase a Malibu racing license—this is a one-time purchase and it doesn't expire. A new indoor slot-car track was also recently installed.
This bowling alley and funplex offers fun for the entire family—even the youngest members—and that is what sets it apart from the competition.

The other side offers a soft play area for little kids, as well as videogames, bumper cars and redemption games. Families pack the place on the weekends, but the crowd gets older as the night progresses.

This course opened its doors to the public in 1963. Designed by George Hoffman, the course spans 6,896 yards from the championship tees and has long been a favorite of San Antonio natives and tourists alike. The clubhouse is a little weathered looking, but make no mistake, the course is in very good shape almost year round. Water, sloped greens, and many, many trees make this a pretty challenging little course. Like Mission Del Lago, this course is great for those golfers who prefer to walk.

Keith Foster designed this San Antonio masterpiece, which opened in 1993 and has since garnered quite a reputation. A unique course carved out of an abandoned quarry, it placed among the top ten of "America's Top State Golf Courses" in Golf Digest magazine. It offers some of the best views of the city, but don't get caught sightseeing, or this course will eat your lunch. The front nine is pretty open and filled with streams throughout. Upon making the turn, you quickly find out how the course got its name. Nestled within the abandoned quarry, several holes have greens that are bordered on three sides by 100-foot cliffs, with trouble waiting on the other side. In fact, the names given to two of the holes on the quarry side, "Escape from Alcatraz" and "Reload," pretty much tell the story of the back nine. Call for tee times and more information.
Arthur Hills designed this magnificent course, which opened to the public in 1993. It is consistently rated in golfing-resort top tens. Since it is considered part of the Texas Hill Country, there are very few level lies to be found on this course. Trees, hills and dogleg fairways lead up to very fast, undulating greens, which promise to challenge even the most experienced golfer. Each golf cart comes equipped with an ice chest as well as a tip sheet on how to best attack the course. Open daily 7 am onwards.
