It’s Anything But Par For UCTA Golf Tournament
Join your colleagues and friends at the Underground Construction Technology Association (UCTA) Gulf Coast Chapter’s Scholarship Golf Tournament to be held Monday, Jan. 23, the day before UCT kicks off. All proceeds fund the UCTA’s college scholarship program.
Players will enjoy the links at the Quarry Golf Club. Famous for supplying the cement for the state capitol of Texas, the original rock quarry closed down in 1983 after nearly one 100 years of operation. And one tradition simply paved way for another. The Quarry Golf Club opened in 1993 after an award-winning design by Keith Foster and careful chiseling of stone gave birth to a course that has been unmatched ever since.

About San Antonio, the Host City
San Antonio, also known as “The Alamo City,” is the seventh largest city in the U.S. and one of the most visited destinations in Texas. San Antonio offers a blend of charm, vibrancy and color that has just about any attraction or activity you could want from historical sites and authentic culture to pro sports and modern theme parks. The city’s central location makes it a convenient destination from both the East and West coasts; and a newly renovated international airport, only eight miles from downtown, makes access even easier.

Getting around San Antonio is a breeze. The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center is directly across the street from UCT’s headquarters hotel, the Hilton Palacios del Rio, and is two blocks from the overflow hotel, the historic Menger.
