5.) Texas State University Golf Course
The Texas State University Golf Course is a hidden gem in San Marcos. It is a little rough around the edges, but it offers a laid back golf experience. You’ll meet locals and students who just want to get outside and have some fun.
Though there are no par-5’s on this nine-hole course, but you can use every club in your bag. The course forces golfers into some interesting choices. No. 4 is a the 310-yard par-4 daring golfers to pull out the driver on a narrow fairway with water at about 200 yards. No. 8 is also a risk-reward hole. Hit your tee shot over water and tall trees then see how close you come to the concealed green.
The course’s signature hole is No. 2. This 173-yard par-3 forces you to carry water and thread the needle between two rows of massive cypress trees.
