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

My son and I played at SPIGC the last week of July. The date is important to note because that was the excuse we were given in the clubhouse for the poor conditions of the greens. OK, I accept that, but for $75.00 each I expected more... much more! In Dallas this would have been a $25-$30 per round course.... More

SPIGC is a challenging course, well manicured, and the staff are very friendly. There is a driving range, and a chipping/putting area also. Pro Shop is well supplied.

I believe if you have nothing nice to say then don't say it, HOWEVER, I really think I should share my experience at this golf club. My boyfriend and I had a tee time this morning and when we arrived we were told to go to tee #1. Once at tee #1 there was a group of 4 people waiting... More
