The Quarry is where Keith Foster, the architect, got his recognition, and deservedly so. It's located just south of the San Antonio Airport, and is built, at least the back nine, in a former rock quarry.

It can play to 6,740 yards, 72.4/132, course/128 slope ratings from the tips, but has 3 other sets of tees. The front nine is more links style with slightly rolling fairways, bordered by tall native grasses. The back nine is a drastic change from the front as you play through the pit with elevated tees, and forced carries over chasms from the former quarry, and is entertaining and fun to play. The routing is framed by a lake, limestone cliffs at least 125 high, and some fantastic views over the course. The grasses are tall, and the rough is thick, so be prepared for a challenge. It is open to the public with a country club atmosphere, the grounds are immaculate.

played at The Quarry last year and enjoyed it, $55 on sunday. the back nine is what made the course, very beautiful. it was cold and rainy the front nine so i dont remember much, it cleared at the start of the back nine and will pay $55 just for the back nine again. i plan to go back on a better day.

Played this week and thought the course design was excellent, conditions good, and reasonable rats. The front nine is almost links-like, devoid of trees and it winds around several water hazards. Starting with the opening hole, they come into play on five of the outward nine. Unfortunatly, there's some visual distractions, a strip mall runs down the left side of the first hole, taking away a little bit of the ambience. Tthe front nine plays quite shorter than the back, it's still a test, specifically when the wind is up and you need to hit your approach over water, like on the first and third holes. When you make the turn, you'll be seeing the more challenging stretch of the course. The inward holes at The Quarry are really the most interesting, especially Nos. 12 and 13 and 16 through 18. Despite being under 400 yards, the 17th not only is quite deceiving, but one of the most difficult holes on the course. We found it overall very challenging with forced carries over water and ravines, uphill towards greens, strategic choices off the tee.

The Quarry has elevation changes on every hole and no two holes are remotely alike. It is very challenging with extremely hard to read greens that are very fast. The area has a fault line which runs through the course and the putts break towards it, so add more to your read. The wind was blowing 25-35 mph today and the course has many holes in this Texas Hill Country around the top of those very hills. There are no out of bounds… The entire course is played as a lateral hazard and you can play them if you find them. The course is laced with live oak trees which are native this area of Texas. Sand traps had the white silica-type sand and were very soft, deep and playable. Go back one or two tee boxes on this very difficult course.
