About River Crossing

River Crossing Club, a premier Texas Hill Country private San Antonio golf club, offers its Members (and a limited number of non-member golfers) an incredible golfing experience! Always considered one of the best maintained courses in this part of Texas, River Crossing Club is also known for being one of the most playable courses. It’s a perfect balance of challenge and forgiveness that provides one enjoyable round after another.

Our 18-hole championship San Antonio golf course, nestled in the rustic beauty of the Texas Hill Country, was recently voted as one of the most well-maintained golf courses in the San Antonio area. Golf Week (Texas Golfer publication) rated River Crossing Club “13th best course in the state” and The San Antonio Business Journal rated River Crossing’s course as one of the “3rd toughest private courses in the area.”

Our Host – Paul Lane
Paul received his Bachelor’s Degree in Agronomy from Texas A&M University. He has been with River Crossing Club since March of 2000 managing the construction and grow-in/maintenance of the course. Paul has over 20 years of golf course maintenance experience. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his wife, son and daughter along with hunting and playing golf.

About The Bandit

The Bandit Golf Club is situated off the shores of Lake McQueeney an easy 30-minute ride from downtown San Antonio is a “Must play” if in the area. Easy freeway access to Austin and Houston makes it a perfect location to meet with friends or make some new ones, as you enjoy an unforgettable round of golf in Texas, Hill Country!

The Bandit course designed by noted architect, Keith Foster is 6,928 yards of golf from the longest tees with a par of 71 although multiple tees insure you play from the length best suited for your enjoyment. The course winds in and around Long Creek and Lake McQueeney and makes good use of all the natural hazards these two bodies of water create. Significant elevation changes create spectacular views that lead to the sculpted fairways and perfect greens. Great conditioning is always part of the Bandit experience in fact it is these characteristics that likely contributed to The Bandit being named a “Top 10, Public Course in Texas” by Golfweek magazine.

David Doherty is CEO/Founder of the “International Sports Turf Research Center, Inc.” (ISTRC). and holds three patents on the ISTRC System which was developed to monitor the ageing process of both sand and soil based golf greens. Mr. Doherty is recognized by most in the industry to be the world’s foremost authority on the Physical Properties of golf greens.  The majority of the top 100 courses in all categories use the ISTRC System to monitor the effectiveness of their agronomic programs from year to year or from season to season. ISTRC has monitored the effects of aerification and other cultural practices of over 2,000 different golf courses and thousands of greens in less than 10 years. The patented ISTRC System of undisturbed core testing was developed by Mr. Doherty to provide turf grass professionals with: (a) accurate, cost effective data about root zone conditions as they exist in the field, and (b) the effects of those conditions on turf quality and plant health. ISTRC’s unique and proprietary data base contains thousands of test results. The knowledge derived from the database allows ISTRC to not only report the test data, but also interpret the data in “layman’s language”.

Thanks to all who participated in this terrific event!
