Mission del Lago puts the focus on family and recreation with amenities that offer great opportunities for time spent together in nature.
Alamo City Golf Trail’s Mission del Lago Golf Course
Alamo City Golf Trail’s Mission del Lago Golf Course is the centerpiece of the Mission del Lago community, with 18 holes of challenging play for all levels of golfers. This favorite SouthSide recreational amenity meanders through the center of the Mission del Lago community, offering a public, British-style links course with flatter yet rolling land plus tree-lined fairways, scenic water hazards, and numerous bunkers.
The course was designed by Denis Griffiths, the only American golf architect to design a course in St. Andrews, Scotland. This full-service golf facility also offers a large practice green, a chipping course, a driving range, a pro shop, and a restaurant, as well as beautiful views of adjacent Mitchell Lake.
Kids laugh, run, and enjoy being active at two Mission del Lago parks and playgrounds within the SouthSide community, Jim Mattox Park and Julian C Gallardo Elementary School. The 2,500-square-foot playground at Jim Mattox Park is located just behind the Mission del Lago Golf Course’s Clubhouse, and includes a tennis court, picnic tables, and grills. Julian C Gallardo Elementary School Park and Playground is located at the front of the Mission del Lago community and provides a shaded playground for climbing and playing, and grassy fields for running and enjoying family picnics.

Mission de Lago is located right next to the 1200-acre Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, giving homeowners a unique natural amenity within footsteps of home. The Audubon Center includes the 600-acre Mitchell Lake, 215 acres of wetlands and ponds, and 385 acres of upland habitat, and is a world-class bird sanctuary.
