Olmos Basin is one San Antonio's most popular municipal courses. It is located just north of downtown San Antonio, off of Highway 281. It opened in 1963, and was designed by George Hoffman. Olmos Basin has been the site of numerous Men’s and Women’s City Amateur championships. Tree-lined fairways and a creek that runs through many of its holes make it an interesting layout that our locals thoroughly enjoy.
Located in the center of San Antonio, just north of Brackenridge Park, Olmos Basin is a fun golf course and a local favorite. The course is playable for all types of golfers from beginners to scratch players. Common features include tree-lined fairways, long par 3's, reachable par 5's, and a creek that winds through the course. The toughest hole at Olmos Basin is the 2nd hole (par 4) - a tree-lined dogleg right that leaves most players with a long, uphill approach shot.
Olmos Basin does offer its fair share of birdie holes and the greens are relatively flat. With some decent ball striking, you should have a chance to post an impressive score. Olmos Basin is equipped with four different tee boxes to accommodate all skill levels, ranging from 5612 yards to 6847 yards.

Did You Know?
Olmos Basin Golf Course is the Alamo City Golf Trail's most played golf course. Olmos Basin's central location, along with its wide open holes, make it a favorite for scratch golfers.
The golf course is quite forgiving towards beginners, and four sets of tees make it accessible to all skill levels. All these factors contribute to this course's extreme popularity.
The championship layout still requires accurate drives since there are trees lining all of the narrow fairways.
