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

With so many attractions, sometimes it's hard to pick and choose what you want to do. I highly recommend taking the time to visit the property and walk around, at the very least. There is a wide variety of things to do on the complex for different ages and spending levels. Even just walking around to see the bay views... More

On a whim, my husband and 3 teenage sons decided to golf at Moody Gardens while we were on vacation in Galveston. The guy working at the golf shop was extremely helpful in setting them up with clubs, carts, balls, etc. They had a great time golfing and really enjoyed the course, except for the strong wind that day. They... More

This is one of the finest and best kept golf courses I have played in a long time. The staff is friendly and the fairways and greens are exceptional. They have a "Senior" special on Tuesdays and Fridays that can't be beat! You can't go wrong playing this course almost any time during the year!

Love the three pyramids. Nice place to take the kids. I enjoyed seeing the rain forests, cloud forests, the aquarium. shark tank up close! and to top it..the Penguins. We spent the whole day there, watched 3D and 4D movies, the ride movie and all other events and it was worth it. We spent the last part of the day... More
