SilverHorn Golf Club of Texas

At only 10 years old, SilverHorn Golf Club of Texas has fast become one of the area’s best upscale daily fee courses. This course is a wedge shot from the San Antonio International Airport (not really that close, unless you’re John Daly!), but you wold never know it while out on the course.

The distinct layout of SilverHorn can be credited to designer Randy Heckenkemper, along with PGA Tour Professionals Willie Wood and Scott Verplank. SilverHorn is abundant with tree-lined fairways, strategically placed sand and water hazards, and beautifully framed contoured greens. All which make this par-72 course a treasured Hill Country experience long remembered. Four holes on the front nine have water hazards in play. Locals say that Hole #18 is one of the best finishing holes in the area.

Playing from the tips, the 524-yard par-5, is a dogleg right and inclined fairway. A nicely placed tee shot will leave you in great position for your second, which must be well-struck so you can avoid the large oak tree growing on the right. Finally, there’s an approach shot over a depression in the fairway with a rock-bed creek at its base to a green with a large sand bunker protecting its front.

Even with the accolades that come with Hole #18, the course has 2 “official” signature holes (one on each nine). On the front, the #6 Hole, a par-5, shares many commonalities with other great golf holes around the world. Twenty acres of water borders the entire left side of this 556-yard dogleg left, bringing water into play on every shot.

On the back side, the 15th hole is a long par-4 and is a bit more challenging than the famed #18. Shot placement and distance are key on this 446-yard hole. The second shot is to an elevated green which is guarded by a large bunker on the left. Two creeks cross through the fairway and must be cleared on the second shot to have a chance at par.

SilverHorn is always a favorite of the local golf crowd. However, SilverHorn has even more than golf. Many special occasions are booked at SilverHorn for their banquet facilities. Fancy gatherings to informal affairs, many opportunities await you.

SilverHorn is conveniently located in North Central San Antonio, minutes from the airport and the world famous Riverwalk. SilverHorn offers a variety of learning programs taught by PGA professionals; tournament services; banquet and conferencing facilities, and much more.
