Brackenridge Park Golf Course is the heart of the Alamo City Golf Trail. Located just north of downtown San Antonio, this course is accessible for locals and visitors alike. The 2008 restoration of “Old Brack” re-routed the course to Tillinghast’s original layout and renewed its conditions to compete with San Antonio’s premier golf courses. Anyone playing golf in the San Antonio should tee it up at Brackenridge to enjoy its wonderful history and fun city-park layout.
Brackenridge Park Golf Course is also the new site of the Texas Golf Hall of Fame. Come visit the club house to see the “Walk of Fame”, the “Wall of Frames”, and the Texas Tournament Trophy Room!
Don’t be fooled by Old Brack’s 6243 yard length as this city park course features multiple defenses. Despite the shorter than average course yardage, four of five Brackendridge Par 3’s are measured over 180 yards. Most of the Par 5’s are reachable for longer hitters, but almost every golfer has trouble reaching the 446 yard, Par 4, #14 in regulation. Fairway bunkers and treelined fairways require accurate tee shots that put a premium on keeping it in the “short stuff”. Old Brack’s toughest attribute has to be it’s deep greenside bunkers and elevated greens that were added during the 2008 restoration. And, when you do make it on the putting surface, every Brackenridge Park green features unique undulations that make for difficult lag puts, double-breakers, and tough flagstick locations.
