While staying at Moody Gardens Hotel, we decided to take advantage of the nearby golf course although we initially had no plans to golf. It was a nice course and so convenient to the hotel. While the kids went to the water parks, the husbands had some fun on the course

This course feels like you are Miles away from everything. The foliage is lush and well maintained. The practice area is perfect and never feels crowded.

This course is well maintained; and has a helpful staff. You see wildlife along the way as you work through the course. It is a goof challenging course. Definitely going back.

Not a challenging nor very pretty course but if you're in the area and want to play a round of golf, it's there and not often crowded. The staff is cordial and the equipment is maintained acceptably.

This course has a little of everything, including vintage planes flying over from the flight museum, and sea birds following you on the course. The course is challenging, but I love it.

Played there on a sunny cool and very windy day. There was one hit towards the water that was 100 yrds shirt because of the wind. Rentals (Cobra's) were in good condition. Good overall service.

This is a well maintained course. Very nice fairways and great views. Lots of water so it's pretty challenging, especially for a right handed slice on the back 9. The price is comparable to some of the other courses in the area, and it's very reasonable if you're a city resident. It's awesome to see the old flight museum planes... More

We loved this course. Well kept, nice clubhouse with good staff. We went with a Groupon but noted the regular pricing was terrific. This is a challenging but fair course with water on nearly every hole. Interesting layout. It's close to the airport so lots of helicopters coming and going but also is a bird santuary with some we have... More

Our golf group (4 couples) spent four days in Galveston on our annual 'outing', and played here three times. The staff couldn't have been nicer, allowing our injured golfer to ride along without paying. The course is short but challenging, with lots of water. Bring extra balls unless you always hit it straight! Lots of interesting birds, including Rosiette Spoonbills.... More

I had not played the course since the renovation and they have done a remarkable job! The course layout is fantastic. The greens were immaculate and the fairways were in very good shape. Those course used to be burned out, hard as a rock, and tired looking and now it is a delight. The staff was friendly and the pro... More
