Located within a short drive of Austin, Texas, within four hours of the Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston metropolitan areas and just minutes away from the San Antonio International Airport, the PGA TOUR’s TPC San Antonio is the ultimate destination for buddy golf getaways and family vacations alike, offering services and amenities that meet the highest standards of professional golf and hospitality.
TPC San Antonio opened in January 2010 and features two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by some of the world’s most talented and respected golf course architects: the AT&T Canyons Course designed by Pete Dye, considered by many the most influential golf course architect of the past five decades; and the AT&T Oaks Course, designed by World Golf Hall of Fame member Greg Norman with Sergio Garcia as player consultant. Both courses have played host to TOUR events, with the AT&T Canyons Course hosting the San Antonio Championship from 2011-2015, and the AT&T Oaks Course currently serving as the venue for the PGA TOUR’s Valero Texas Open, a host course since 2010.
In addition to some of state’s most pristine golf, the property also features a 23-acre practice facility with two putting and short game practice areas that are distinctive in that they replicate designs and grass selections of the courses. This feature allows first-time guests to get a feel for the course before stepping foot on the first tee. TPC San Antonio’s state of the art practice facility also offers personalized instruction at the TOUR Academy, which features golf lessons for beginners through the “Get Golf Ready” program, as well as two-, three- and five-day golf schools.
Giving back to the community has always been at the heart of the PGA TOUR and TPC Network – coming to life through its charitable mission of “Together, Anything’s Possible.” In its 92-year history, the Valero Texas Open has donated more than $94.5 million to charity. As always, this year’s Valero Texas Open, scheduled April 18-24, is expected to be stacked with some of the biggest names on TOUR, driving record numbers of spectators to TPC San Antonio and even more funds back to philanthropic efforts in the community. Last year’s tournament ended with a battle of Texans, concluding with Jimmy Walker walking away with the ‘W’ ahead of Jordan Spieth.
Guest accommodations are available on-site at The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, the brand’s largest resort in the world. With 1,002-rooms, it has firmly established itself as the city’s premier luxury destination, rated 4-Diamonds by AAA. The resort features seven restaurants, including its famous High Velocity sports bar featuring a 120-foot long media display and monitors galore, as well as Cibolo Moon, the premier San Antonio restaurant offering Southwestern and Mexican-inspired cuisine and libations prepared by top chefs sommeliers. After a delectable meal, guests bask in scenic views of the Texas countryside from room balconies, watching majestic sunsets over 600 acres of rolling oak-covered hills.
Aside from providing guests with unparalleled golf experiences, luxurious accommodations and fine dining, the resort has become renowned in Texas Hill Country thanks to its River Bluff Water Experience. This waterpark recently underwent an extensive, $16 million expansion project. Its existing 1,100-foot lazy river, three exciting water slides and infinity adult pool have been upgraded to encompass a beach-entry swimming pool, two new body slides, private cabanas and fire pits to name a few. The new installment’s grand opening celebration is scheduled for March 29, 2016.
TPC San Antonio’s breadth of experience hosting high-profile events for Fortune 500 companies, professional sports teams, businesses, political groups, celebrities, national charitable organizations, and PGA TOUR tournaments makes the destination qualified to create unforgettable corporate or charity golf outings.
