A Texas Hill Country Club
The rolling terrain, native oak trees, wildlife and wildflowers of Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club exemplify nature’s best work, enhanced by the truly exquisite golf and tennis environment at our Club. The Club opened its doors in 1978, using the original 14,000-square-foot ranch home of Ralph E. Fair Sr., an internationally known oilman and rancher, as the center of the Club. The home, built in the 1930s, is constructed with native Texas Hill Country river rock and contains about 20,000 square feet of spacious high-ceiling rooms, offering one of the m...ost unique and beautiful club facilities in the Southwest.
As the residential community grew into the City of Fair Oaks Ranch (incorporated in 1988), the Club created an oasis and a home away from home for the residents, Members and guests.
Voted “The Best Overall Family Value Country Club” for three years by AvidGolfer magazine and “The Best Overall Country Club” in 2008 in the Boerne Star, Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club has become San Antonio’s premier family-oriented country club, known for its impeccable and personalized service, warm and friendly staff, full-service facilities and amenities, and an active and vibrant membership community.
