Tim Duncan may not have any personality, but San Antonio and its golf make up for it
No, San Antonio isn’t as boring as a Tim Duncan post-game news conference - and the Riverwalk is certainly more than a “muddy-watered thing,” as rival Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban infamously said a few postseasons ago.
Far more than the famous Alamo, San Antonio is rife with historical attractions, restaurants and bars along the Riverwalk. Here, you learn just how multicultural the city is, from Mexican to German settlers. Many say my city of Austin doesn’t feel like the “real” Texas, since there are so many hippies and snowbirds (like yours truly).
Come to San Antonio and it’s all the Texas you could possibly ask for, and it’s a lot of fun.
And the golf is no Manu Ginobli flop, either. There are classic golf courses like newly refurbished Brackenridge Park and Pecan Valley near the center of the city. Then, you can head into the Hill Country and play such resort course gems as the two courses at the Westin La Cantera and 27 holes at the Hill Country Golf Club at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country.
Yeah, you could make a good week’s worth out of the golf and sites in San Antonio, and because there’s amusement parks like Six Flags Fiesta, Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Sea World, you can drop the kids off in the morning, squeeze in 36 holes and they wouldn’t even miss you.
It’s an exciting city to visit, if only we could get a little of that personality out of Tim Duncan…
