San Antonio, TX Friday - March 17th (St. Patrick's Day)

Weather: Tee times started at 1:40 pm. Light showers in the area ended by noon. Temperatures started out at a cold 45 degrees and peaked at around 55 by 5pm. Skies were overcast and the wind was out of the north at 5 mph for most of the day.

Course conditions: New course. While the course layout is excellent, the course itself needs another 4 to 6 months to mature. The fairways, as well as the greens are still very patchy. The greens were brown in areas but still rolled well. The fairway rough was "US Open" height...in other words...long. Overall the course has great potential and will be a great addition to San Antonio's golfing community.

Special play rules: Rule 20 (Relief Situations and Procedure) was used for all holes. Players were allowed to lift, clean and place.
