Course origins
TPC San Antonio opened in January 2010 with 36 holes of golf designed by two of golf's most innovative architects: Pete Dye and Greg Norman. Situated on 2,800 acres at the base of Texas hill country, both the AT&T Canyons Course by Pete Dye and AT&T Oaks Course by Greg Norman were built with the infrastructure to be host venues for PGA TOUR tournaments.
TPC San Antonio is a private resort, only accessible to club members and guests of the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa. --Source: Golf Course Superintendents Assocation of America

HOLE: The par-4, 347-yard 17th at TPC San Antonio
DESCRIPTION: Current PGA TOUR player Sergio Garcia lent his unique perspective in assisting celebrated golfer and renowned golf course architect Greg Norman with the design of the par-72, 7,522-yard AT&T Oaks Course. Similar to renown golf course designer Pete Dye, Norman's design philosophy is underscored by environmental sensitivity and a deep reverence for nature. Great care has been taken to incorporate the distinct nuances and indigenous flora of the natural Hill Country topography into the course design, to create a compelling, strategically diverse and strikingly beautiful course for golfers of all skill levels.
