You won’t find a better representation of the good life in the Lone Star state than at Comanche Trace. This well-established community, located minutes from San Antonio, recently celebrated its 10th anniversary; and is continually planning new developments and reaping the benefits of sustained, steady growth.
The reasons for the success of Comanche Trace are as abundant as the sweeping views of the Guadalupe River Valley. There is plenty to boast about in this idyllic community that perfectly blends the charm of small town living with big city convenience. The natural beauty of the Southwest landscape and fantastic year-round climate are a good start, with an average annual high temperature of 78 degrees.
There are also 27 holes of championship golf to accommodate any skill level. Tom Kite and his partners, Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell, designed the original 18 holes – The Valley and Hills courses that make marvelous use of the exquisite Hill Country terrain with its magnificent oak trees. Stretching 7,103 yards from the tips, the superbly conditioned course is nicely balanced, with a mixture of long and short par 4s. A few years ago, Jay and Carter Morrish added a third nine, the Creeks course that features lakes and creeks. Course conditions are taken very seriously, and thanks to an agreement with the City of Kerrville to purchase treated effluent (recycled) water, Comanche Trace can continue watering even through periods of drought. Golf Digest has ranked the golf courses of Comanche Trace as ”Best in State Architecture Award” for 8 consecutive years. The PGA Texas Valero Open qualifying rounds have been played at Comanche Trace for several years, and the Texas Golf Association rotates many of its top tournaments through, as well.
Members can make great use of the eight-acre private river park along the Guadalupe River, and the five-acre catch-and-release lake. There is also a four-mile, crushed granite trail system, community garden, swimming pool and spa, lighted tennis courts, and the stunning 24,000-square foot clubhouse, where fine and casual dining can be enjoyed in a relaxed atmosphere while taking in breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
Well known for its annual Folk Festival and Texas State Arts & Crafts Festival, the nearby town of Kerrville is also popular for its affordable cost of living, great medical facilities, and local cuisine. Local wineries abound in and around Kerrville and the surrounding towns. The downtown is undergoing a $20 million renovation that will add new stores and restaurants, plus a six-mile hiking/biking trail along the river. In the Spring, bluebonnets and other wildflowers perfume the air and suffuse the hillsides in color, giving drivers and motorcyclists a memorable experience.
