What You'll Get

Even the most hardened city dweller can occasionally use a respite from the car horns and mysterious bagpipers whose sounds pollute the urban morningscape. Flee to a fairer scene with today’s Groupon to Flying L Guest Ranch in Bandera. Choose from one of the following options:

  • For $12, you get a round of golf (up to a $35 value).

  • For $5, you get a child admission to Lone Star Lagoon water park (a $10 value).

  • For $10, you get an adult admission to Lone Star Lagoon water park (a $20 value).

Located roughly an hour from San Antonio, the sprawling ranch offers an all-natural taste of Texas country life, with fun, family-friendly activities peppered throughout the grounds. Test mettle and cart-wheelie skills on the PGA-pro staffed Flying L Golf Course, a 6,646-yard stretch featuring winding fairways, majestic backdrops and terrain flecked with hills and oak trees that made Resort and Lodges list of the 10 Best Golf Resorts in Texas. Each of the EZ Go golf carts comes equipped with a ProLink GPS system, ensuring that players won’t lose their way when searching for balls in the rough or escaping flirtatious sand traps. The Spike N’ Spur Grill awaits putting powerhouses after a long day’s flogging and, though a meal is not included in today’s Groupon, the sunsets seen from its newly built patio deck may be enjoyed free of charge.

Peace-loving visitors and solacers of the rubber-cored can choose to spend the day splashing about in the refreshing Lone Star Lagoon water park, a pioneer-themed oasis of wagon-covered slides, wading pools, and play places that capture the thrill of the Oregon Trail without the dysentery and two-bit graphics. H2O lovers can thrill to the bucket drop, lounge on the lazy river, or succumb to gravity on the slippery slides. Both adults and kids will gain access to ranch amenities, including tennis, horseshoes, basketball, and sand volleyball. The water park includes rides for patrons of all ages, making it a more ideal family destination than Passive Amusement Park or W-9 Island.

No outside coolers are allowed in the water park.

About Flying L Guest Ranch

Jack Lapham strolled all 542 acres of the ranch, breathing in the desert air deeply and squinting at the shrub-speckled hills. On the horizon of this empty Western wilderness, he saw fences for horse stables, hotel suites, shooting ranges, and aircraft runways. The ranch’s owner stood behind him as he surveyed the land. “What do you think?” the owner asked, his voice firm and husky, like gravel. Jack, a former military colonel, turned and smiled a soldier’s wry smile. With a twinkle in his eye, he pulled out his checkbook. “This looks like a place where modern people can go and find themselves in the midst of yesterday.”

Over its next 65+ years as a dude ranch, the Flying L was the setting for aircraft tests, visits from famous authors, and the TV show The Cisco Kid. Today, staffers maintain its desert landscape and historic stone villas—many designed by associates of Frank Lloyd Wright—as a Western family resort. Suites lodge visitors among fireplaces and king-size beds, and modern and traditional decor styles meet inside tile bathrooms and wood-cabin construction. An 18-hole golf course rambles between massive oak trees, and miniature-golf fairways encounter obstacles such as rocky outcroppings and wagon wheels. An authentic ranch stable houses 40 horses, which can carry riders around the fields or on trots along grassy trails and rocky riverside paths. Nearby, a water park battles the desert heat and incites the hurt feelings of mirages with an artificial wave pool, tubing river, and water slides.
