The Palmer Course at La Cantera opened in March 2001 and offers visitors to The Westin La Cantera Resort a second 18-hole course, designed by Arnold Palmer and the Palmer Course Design Co. The course complements the existing Resort Course at La Cantera, and together the public daily fee courses are the first in South Texas to provide 36 holes of championship golf designed by golfing legends.

Located on 225 acres, The Palmer Course at La Cantera provides golf enthusiasts a par-71 course measuring approximately 7,000 yards. The course includes several signature holes, including the par 3 No. 4 hole with dramatic waterfalls along the entire front of the green and a tribute to Palmer’s late wife: The Winnie Palmer Memorial Bridge.

Also featured on all of the course's carts is the state-of-the-art ParView GPS system, which is key in assisting golfers as they map out their strategy for each hole.

Arnold Palmer played a six-hole exhibition on the course during the grand opening, and stated that, “The Palmer Course at La Cantera is one-of-a-kind and a first-class golfing experience.”

The Palmer Course was named as one of America's 100 Best Golf Shops by Golf World Business magazine in 2003 – one of just four awarded in Texas.
