Resort Course At La Cantera Resort & Spa Undergoing Extensive Renovation

(San Antonio, Texas) – The Resort Course at La Cantera Resort & Spa has closed for extensive renovations.  Located just north of San Antonio, Texas, La Cantera Resort & Spa features two championship 18-hole golf courses, the Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish-designed Resort Course and the Arnold Palmer-designed Palmer Course.

The renovation will include new green complexes, tee complexes and bunkers. Tee boxes are being leveled and enlarged to gain additional tee space, while greens are returning to original sizes and will be resurfaced with TifEagle grass.  Green contours also will change to match the increased green speeds.

The total number of bunkers will be reduced and locations changed to better define the direction of holes and accommodate the advancements in golf equipment and distance.  Bunkers will be regraded, reshaped and rebuilt incorporating a technically advanced drainage and liner system.  Finally, white sand will be used to create a more appealing aesthetic.

“The Resort Course opened in 1995 and has consistently been rated one of the top courses in Texas ever since,” said Steve Shields, PGA, director of golf. “This renovation strikes a good balance between playing strategy, course aesthetics and environment. Once complete, golfers will experience the game with the challenges they've come to expect and the same spectacular views of the Texas Hill Country and San Antonio skyline.  It will feel as though their playing a brand new course"

While the course is closed, crews will trim trees and lift tree canopies, repair cart paths and renovate course restrooms. Off course, the Resort Golf Shop will be updated, while the Resort Grille and Snack Shop will also be refurbished.  Additionally, the practice range and tee area will be leveled and resurfaced.

Renovation projects are expected to be completed late October as the Resort Course is scheduled to reopen November 1.
