Our 18 hole championship golf course is located on the beautiful Laguna Madre Bay. Our golf course is considered one of the finest in the area. Enveloped by nature and removed from the traffic and busy pace of this modern age, the course at South Padre Island Golf Club is truly an oasis.

Had heard this was a great course. It needs some up keep. Paths have large potholes some are just clay from so much traffic. The cost per player is to high for the shape the courses is in. Would not recommended it to any golfers. Not worth the trip to the Island

We played here 3 times during Thanksgiving week. It's a bit run down but the course offers some interesting holes and the greens and fairways are in decent condition. Prices seemed to vary from day to day so it's probably worth asking what deals are available.

If you go wear your hip waders because the water is lower in the Laguna than it is on the golf course.

course was solid for summer in South TX. Got there at 10 and had requested rental clubs and none left. So they made two sets. Bags were taken from garbage can, two ladies putters (for men), 5 irons each (one had no grip), 3 old school woods (one with bent shaft). Got in cart had flat tire. Bar staff was... More

I've been to South Padre Island (SPI) a few times but never to Laguna Vista or SPI Golf Resort. It’s roughly 10 miles west of SPI itself. The facilities were built in 1997 and designed to give it the appearance of a resort and it has that appearance but very few services exist even though they advertise as such. We... More

The SPIGC is now under professional management and things have really changed. The bunkers, greens, tee boxes, and all general areas of maintenance have been stepped up 100% from one year ago and maybe over 200% better the two years ago. The management company is making SPIGC ‘the place’ for championship golf in the Rio Grand Valley. They offer "Stay... More

The only day that we could play at South Padre Island Golf Club, the temps were in the low 60’s with winds gusting at 30+mph, somewhat unfriendly for golf. BTW, in Mass. we'd play when temps are above 50. That day, the winds took down several flagsticks. The ones that were still standing curved and resisted as much as they... More

The golf course is run down and the cart paths are terrible. Make sure you book on golf now.com. Do not pay full price, you will be very disappointed. The pro shop had nothing on the shelves. The staff was very friendly. The ranger was very helpful. He talked to a pushy group behind us. We are a very fast... More

No where near what they try to sell this place at. This is at best a 25.00 golf course. No grass on the greens and extremely slow play. Part of this could be we were behind four of the slowest golfers I think I have ever seen on a course. I have always said the people in Texas are the... More

I was very enthusiastic to play golf here. I'm a kiteboarder and a golfer. Thought I'd buy a house on this golf course. Best of both worlds… but the greens are actually brown. Not sure if it's drought related. If so, then there is potential. Fees are absurd. They should sell a winter texan seasonal membership to get this place... More
