Tapatio Springs Resort Course Gets a Fresh New Look
The Resort Course at the popular Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort near San Antonio, Texas underwent a major $2 million renovation, by highly regarded restoration experts, Tripp Davis & Associates(TDA). The firm evaluated the Resort Course and came back with a master plan to significantly improve the once prominent championship course into a stunning and stimulating “must play” golf experience.
TDA took the outdated landscape and tired holes, starting in spring of 2015 and transformed it by regrading the fairways to improve drainage and playing surfaces, installing new and artful bunker designs that dramatically increase the shot strategy of many of the holes and redoing the tee boxes.”Attractive bunkering is one of the key ingredients in defining the visual character of a golf course; the greater the visual and strategic character, the greater the experience,” offered Tripp Davis, an ASGCA member. “I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a bunker and tee project have as big an impact on a golf course as what’s been achieved here at Tapatio Springs.”
According to Director of Golf Matt Reams, “Our Course is once again a golfer’s paradise in every sense of the word. Tripp Davis and his team have restored the course to its championship level, ensuring high-quality, fun playing conditions for golfers of all skill levels. Based on our guest feedback, we’re well on our way to regaining our proud position as one of the 10 golf courses in Texas.”
Davis, headquartered in Norman Oklahoma and a decorated amateur golfer, believes the Resort Course should be considered among the best in Texas once again. “There was a time in the late 80’s & 90’s when the Tapatio Springs Resort Course was regarded as one of the best in the state, if not the region,” Tripp stated. “The golf course is simply beautiful with great rolling terrain, huge old live oak trees and stunning vistas. Our focus has been simple, to regain the best of its original character and enhance certain areas for today’s playing styles and the resort’s many guests and members. I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done. For more on information on Tripp Davis and Associates, visit www.TDAGolf.net.
Additional upgrades and improvements to the driving range are underway and are scheduled to be completed by the spring of 2016. The range will be lengthened with rebuilt target greens giving it an overall better appearance, and adding a new short game practice area to allow golfers a higher quality practice experience to hone their game.
