The Palmer Course Closing
As of December 20, 2021, the Palmer Course at La Cantera Resort & Spa is closed. The La Cantera Golf Club will be focusing all efforts on providing an elite golf experience on the Resort Course, pro shop, driving range and Grille 254 Bar & Restaurant. Known for its challenging blind shots and elevation changes, the Palmer Course garnered its fair share of accolades and established its own loyal following. No job losses are expected as the La Cantera Golf Club will accommodate the current staff.
The Resort Course was home to the PGA and Texas Open since it first opened its doors, from 1995-2009 and was the founding element of what is now an award-winning 496-room luxury resort. Subtle renovations of the Resort Course were completed in latter 2017 refining bunkers, tee complexes, greens, and a Pro Shop refresh to create a more playable environment and maintain the championship level of play. Given many accolades, the Resort Course is consistently ranked amongst the highest in the state.
Future plans for the Palmer Course are currently being assessed. The Resort, The Villas, Loma de Vida Spa, Golf Club and Signature Restaurant have all been experiencing unprecedented demand this past year and recommend advanced reservations while high demand continues. The Resort is focused on optimizing the experience of La Cantera Golf Club, while being PGA-level challenging, it is also very playable for all levels of golfers. One addition is that the course will be open 7-days per week to off-set demand for what two courses brought.
