Delaware Springs Golf Course

Greatness doesn’t always announce itself in a burst of flamboyance. It doesn’t shout “Look at me!” or adorn itself in showy accessories. This particular type of greatness often goes unnoticed by the masses, but holds a special place for those fortunate enough to recognize it. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Delaware Springs Golf Course, an unassuming slice of Hill Country heaven with more character than you’ll find in a dozen cosmetically enhanced wannabes.

I urge you to check out Delaware Springs at the down-to-earth price of just $25, good for 18 holes, cart and range balls and valid any time Monday through Thursday, or after 11:00 a.m. Friday through Sunday and holidays, for a 38% discount to regular rates.

For me, Delaware Springs was love at first sight. It’s natural and low-key, yet full of fascinating challenges. I wasn’t surprised to learn that Dave Axland and Dan Proctor were responsible for its design. These two learned the craft from another esteemed pair, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, while working on such masterpieces as Nebraska’s Sand Hills GC. The influence is obvious at Delaware Springs, a minimalist marvel where eight holes are bunker-free and the understated greens have plenty to say about strategy.

The Axland-Proctor ethos is perfectly expressed on Delaware Spring’s 17th hole, which landed a spot in Jeff Barr’s book, 1001 Golf Holes You Must Play Before You Die. In a nutshell, it’s a drivable par 4 of 310 yards that elevates deception to an art form.

You may or may not appreciate Delaware Springs’ rare qualities right away, but you’ll discover something new every time you play it. If that’s not the mark of true greatness, I don’t know what is.
