Cowboy Capitol Course
Pros: Really fun course with great scenery. Have to be able to go over the top, or throw low and straight here, or you'll become intimate with many forms of Hill Country vegetation. Variety of shots called for. Hyzer, anhyzer, rollers, skips, skimmer. River is beautiful. Tees are dirt but OK. Scorecards and map online or at the library. Turn left at the foot of Cypress and park by the walk across from the oak tree to your left. Go down the walk and look left in the second opening past the park sign for Hole 1. Tee markers are ground level. Has a lot of challenging turnover shots to do well. Hole 5 is the signature. I played 36, but played 5-6 twice each round. Fun course. 14 deer were there for my first early morning round.
Cons: At least one stray coral snake in residence. Look before you reach. Can't see the baskets on half the holes, but that is a challenge rather than a Con. Tree canopies can swallow those errant discs. Any fade left is punished with undergrowth. Needed a trim, but the course was fine to play. Plenty of stickers this time of year. If you knock them off with your fingers, you may want to bring tweezers, as in Swiss Army pen knife, to get out the pieces that break off. No snake this time. Rest rooms are north of the road about 100 yards in a clear park area. No water on the course.
Other Thoughts: I enjoy this course. It is a labor of love from the County librarian who got it built. Bandera is a fun town(11th Street Cowboy Bar, etc.) with good food and shopping for the females who don't play, so I would go out of my way to play here.
One of my favorite courses.

Pros: Good solid design, with a few tough shots, a few risk vs. reward and 1 water hazard. Beautiful landscape of fields, woods, brush, river, flowers, cacti, rocks. Tees are marked, map is online. The river is stunning, clear, shallow, lazy, full of big fish.
Cons: Grass wasn't well mowed when I played. Burrs will stick to your legs and shoes and they can cut skin. Dirt tees-not bad dirt tees but not cement either. A bit out of the way, 40 miles from any major town.
Other Thoughts: Worth it if en route to San Antonio from the west, or vice versa.
