I used to live in SA for 3 years. Pearsall was definitely not my favorite course in SA, although the only one on the south side. Check out the San Antonio Disc Golfers group on FB. I think there is a mini there on Saturdays. Probably not the best course for a noob. I'd check out http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=434 Perfect for a first timer.

MFC is right on the money.... Pearsall can be a demanding course, especially in the wind, which seems to be blowing the majority of the time. In my opinion its a great course, I feel its under-rated a bit due to some of the north side courses being pretty awesome. Nani is a great course to get out and throw some discs around. WIDE open, which can really cut out some of the frustration that a beginner may find at a course such as pearsall. I like to swing by nani for practice rounds, good mix of distances, can really get a feel for what different discs are gonna do. No matter which course you head to, you're gonna have a good time. Have fun man!

Just an FYI - There have been some discussions going on lately with the local DG clubs to improve/redesign Pearsall and apparently they already have 3 different possible designs. I'm originally from SA but live in Austin and it's really great to see these clubs always working hard to improve their local courses.

Slight thread hijacking: Will there be any tournaments in the San Antonio area this year?

You can probably expect the following to take place:

Live Oak Summer Open @ Live Oak
Battle in the Briars - Brian McClain Park
Fly Ink Open (historically at Live Oak)
Twisted Flyer usually has a tournament at either Live Oak or Universal City Park
