Windcrest Golf Club

Windcrest TX


Windcrest Golf Club is a 9 hole San Antonio golf course just 10 minutes NE of downtown and open to everyone for daily play. Juniors and family can play from our PGA Family Tees. Last minute tee times are available to the general public and you will find that we are conveniently located between Ft. Sam Houston and Randolph AFB with easy access from 410 and I-35, north of Walzem on Midcrown. Par for 18 holes is 68 and our course traverses 4800 yards of tree-lined fairways where five par 4s, three par 3s and one par 5 challenge your shot making ability. The course is over 50 years old and is made tight in places by mature oak and cottonwood trees that encourage a variety of interesting shots. Green-side bunkers and elevated greens add interest to your short game skills and you are always welcome to walk or ride. Windcrest sponsors a variety of tournaments each month and our men's and ladies' golf associations host regular tournaments.
