The ornate, hand-carved bridge that welcomes you to The Dominion is indicative of the lavish homes you’ll encounter inside this gated community. A 1,500-acre master-planned unit development (PUD) in northwest San Antonio, The Dominion sits on land once owned by Anson Jones, the last president of the Republic of Texas.

Homes in this coveted neighborhood have a median price of just under $1 million and go up to the multi-millions. The Dominion is known for its secured entrance and exits, championship golf course, and beloved country club. It is a pristine and peaceful enclave with the convenience of all the metropolitan amenities of San Antonio available just outside community boundaries.

Walking & biking

You’ll need a car to get around 

Per HOA guidelines, golf carts are permitted in The Dominion, which makes sense considering that it’s home to a stunning 18-hole, 260-acre golf course. However, you’ll need a vehicle to travel to any of the businesses and amenities located just outside of the community in greater San Antonio.  

Public transportation

Services offered in The Dominion 

The Dominion is close to public bus routes

Technically, there are no public transportation services offered within The Dominion boundaries. However, VIA public bus routes 93 and 97 run close to the Dominion for residents and visitors traveling throughout greater San Antonio. 

Animals & pets 

Housepets are welcome 

The Dominion HOA rules permit common household pets and require dogs to be leashed in common areas. Residents must travel to one of San Antonio’s many dog parks to let their dogs socialize and run and play off-leash.

3 things to know before buying a home in The Dominion, according to locals

1. You’ll need HOA approval to make changes

Major exterior property changes must be approved by the HOA. The Dominion Home Owners’ Association consists of six committees that oversee things like community finances, landscape matters, and security. Committees meet monthly and encourage residents to get involved. Monthly HOA fees cover all common expenses, including security, insurance, and social events. 

2. It’s not as diverse as other nearby neighborhoods 

The Dominion lacks the diversity of race and culture that some other San Antonio neighborhoods offer. Minorities represent less than one-quarter of residents. By comparison, the Hispanic population in all of San Antonio  represents more than half of all city residents. 

3. The Country Club is the heart of the community 

The Dominion Country Club boasts a 54,000-square-foot clubhouse, a restaurant, tennis courts, a pool, and, of course, the pristine golf course designed by PGA professional Bill Johnston. The Country Club hosts private events, sports camps, and fitness classes throughout the year. Most amenities require a membership. 

The top 4 things to do in The Dominion

1. Enjoy a round of golf with stunning views

According to The Dominion Club golf course website, the course was designed to be “an improvement on nature itself.” And with 60 sand traps and 25 acres of man-made lakes, it’s safe to say the course lives up to that vision. 

2. Join the Supper Club 

The Dominion Supper Club was created more than 20 years ago and is still going strong. Members meet on the first Thursday of every month for dinner at various residents’ homes. Participants often host “theme nights” or bring in outside entertainment for their guests. 

3. Dine at some of San Antonio’s favorite spots 

There are plenty of delicious places to check out in The Dominion. The Grill at Leon Springs is located just outside of The Dominion. The creative bar menu, signature martinis, and selection of local brews make this a favorite spot among the locals. Other mainstays include La Fogata and La Gloria, which now have locations close to The Dominion. 

4. Brave the coasters at Six Flags Fiesta Texas 

Six Flags Fiesta Texas is just minutes from The Dominion. The park has rides, attractions, shopping, dining, and entertainment for visitors of all ages. Fright Fest is one of Six Flags’ premier events offering spooky, family-friendly attractions to make you scream.
