“Off season golf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This course was in good shape. It is city managed, flat with no trees, windy and very long. Not too many people were playing this day due to wind and cold. It would be nice in warmer weather.

“Beautiful Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Challenging course. It is taken care of very well. Has a nice driving range along with putting green. My husband has played here several times and always enjoys it.

“Pyramids”

The rainforest pyramid is a favorite for children. Restaurant is reasonably priced. The small cafe's located throughout the complex are reasonable and decent food.

“Very nice Public Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I love this Golf Course... They just completly redid the course in the last few years. Great coastal layout... Most days you will have some wind to deal with. The Greens and Fairways may be the best of any course in the Houston Metro area. I mean it, they are really lush. Some days you get lucky and since it is right next to the Galveston Airport you can get to see the old WWII planes taking off and landing while you are playing golf.
