Homes at Comanche Trace are surrounded by expansive Hill Country views, but the heart of this master-planned community is its award-winning championship golf course. Tom Kite, along with Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell, designed the first 18, The Valley and The Hills, utilizing the exquisite Hill Country terrain, which is blessed with majestic oaks. Lakes and streams were also incorporated along with the best bent grass greens in the state.
Jay and Carter Morrish designed a series of streams and lakes that meander around the third 9, The Creeks, which opened in July of 2008.
Comanche Trace is somewhat unique because we are not dense with trees, but we have marquis trees throughout. The fairways are generous and playable with striking bunkers and outstanding views on each green.
Comanche Trace offers beautiful golf holes, natural contouring and pristine conditions. The greens are a blend of bent grass, Crenshaw and L93 bent grass, which, combined with remarkable drainage and dry air, have no need for fans. Comanche Trace course conditions are renowned among golfers as the best in the state and some of the best in the nation.
All three nines begin from the high point of the fifteen acre practice facility, located at the Honor House. The practice facility includes a short-game area at the lower end with two, large tee boxes, practice green, fairway type bunker, greenside bunker, and five target greens inside of 120 yards. It is a pristine setting with long-range views and beautiful, old live oak trees for shading around the practice area.
Our 27-hole golf course appeals to and challenges enthusiasts of every age and ability, with Kerrville and the Texas Hill Country offering a remarkable climate that allows for great golf twelve months out of the year.
Comanche Trace attracts many different levels of players and it fits everyone’s golf game so you can enjoy the architecture and natural beauty. We also host tour players for Valero Texas Open qualifying rounds, as well as AT&T, U.S. Senior Open and U.S. Am qualifiers. Collegiate and junior tournaments, section championships and other prestigious events choose Comanche Trace because we support the game of golf at all levels.
Our members are excited and often volunteer to help with these events, and they love having the likes of David Duvall, Bob Estes and Tom Kite occasionally stop in to play. Even Patrick Reed was here when he put in a stretch of five Mondays before he received his full PGA status!
