La Cantera Golf Club in San Antonio

The course is a Tom Weiskopf/Jay Morrish collaboration that is cut out of a limestone quarry, playing 6,954 yards from the tips but offering another five sets of tees for any sort of hack. White bunkers and majestic oaks dot the plush fairways, and streams weave in and out of the design. Many holes offer panoramic views of the city and countryside, where you'll be able to look down over the hole ahead and see the huge, undulating greens in the distance.

Every hole seems like a signature hole, even the 600-yard-plus opener, but the best hole is the 415-yard No. 12. It features a fairway loaded with stair-stepped bunkers and a green guarded by a natural waterfall. The approach shot on 12 is one of the most scenic in Texas.
