March marks the beginning of the busy Spring golf season here in South Texas.  Not only is it a great time to come out and play with some friends or clients when the golf course is in fantastic shape, but we also have a number of events that highlight the tournament calendar.

The 9th Annual Cordillera Cup will take place Saturday and Sunday March 21st – 22nd.  This Ryder Cup style team competition is the most popular tournament we have amongst our members and thus continues to grow in numbers every year.  Last year, the Northington team continued their victory string in one of the closest competitions in the tournament’s history.  Despite the event’s one sidedness, the format is always fun and part of being a team is what makes this event so special.  Members must register on-line for the tournament this year at

The Cordillera Ranch Golf Professional staff will once again be hosting an Adult Short Game Clinic Tuesday-Thursday March 24th – 26th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at the Practice Park.  This always seems to be a well attended event and space is limited to the first 24 participants.  Focus will once again be on Chipping and Pitching, Bunker play and Putting.

March means the return of the Valero Texas Open here in San Antonio.  Golf San Antonio has done a terrific job with this event in their efforts to make this one of the best events on the PGA Tour.  Valero continues to sponsor the event and help make it the leading tournament on the PGA tour with over $9 million going to charity last year.  I am sure our very own Jimmy Walker will be playing this year so I hope you will consider supporting him and head over and watch the best players in the world compete at the TPC San Antonio course.

The Blockbuster Demo Day is set for Saturday April 11th from 9:00am -3:00pm.  We have added a few things this year to make the event even more entertaining, including music, beer and a few apparel vendors that will help create a very festive atmosphere.  We once again will have a fantastic group of manufacturers lined up to showcase the latest technology in golf clubs.  We will have special discounts on products purchased or ordered that day only so I hope you have the chance to take advantage of this unique opportunity.   Complimentary sodas and hot dogs will be available so come and enjoy the day with us.

The El Compadre Member-Member will take place April 25th – 26th.  The format will once again be a Two-Man Quota and Net BB Quota and we will continue the popular Saturday Casino night that has become a big part of the event.  Put this date on your calendar and come join us for a great time with good friends.

We also will be hosting our Major’s series of One Day Member-Guests’ this year and our Master’s One Day Member-Guest will kick us off.  The tournament is scheduled for Friday April 10th and is a great way to bring up to three guests and showcase all of the beautiful Cordillera Ranch facilities and incredible Jack Nicklaus Signature Course.  Check with the Golf Shop at 830-336-4653 for format and details.

As you can see, we have some great events to participate in so come out and play some golf!


See you on the course,
