We had a little church golf tournament there, and the course was in great shape. There are many different tee boxes for golfers of all levels. The staff were super friendly and went above and beyond. High recommend this course!

Held our annual golf outing at Moody Gardens Hotel and played here. Greens punched three weeks ago but you would never have been able to tell. Wonderful facility and course really nice. Staff helpful and responded to our every need.

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.

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.
