Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Texas
Played while staying on property. Pretty fun layout, with hole #5 being a beast and a true championship hole. The problem is this course caters to families, which can often include beginner golfers, which is great, but really bad for pace of play when you have 5-somes and 6-somes (multiple) of families out playing. It's like going Putt Putt on a Saturday night with your family, except that this is on a real golf course. And as great a hole #5 is, it's a disaster for beginners, and completely bottlenecks the course. The family 6-some I saw a couple times could easily spend 30 minutes on this one hole. Follow that up with another really tough hole, but also a great hole, #6, and your round will come to a complete halt. Fairways were great. Bunkers not very well maintained. Greens were very spongy, healthy, but slow. The best part was the driving range. Being a practice junkie, they had some of the best turf I've ever hit off of. I'd love to have this grass to hit balls every day. They have a little practice "loop" of 3 par 3's that is really fun. You could spend hours just playing with you buddies and having a really good time. Overall, I'm glad I played it, but would hesitate to play again simply because we got to #5 tee box and completely got bogged down with groups in front of us. And there was no where to go. I'm not sure there is a remedy, as this is a family destination and besides the pool, the only activity available.
The course is in great shape....the staff is friendly and helpful....the greens are beautiful...and the ball just rolls in the hole
Pricey for 9 hole par 32 golf course
The course is excellently maintained. Beautiful and challenging, but par 32, 5 par fours and 4 par threes with two finishing holes both par threes. If you want to play golf in Port Aransas this is your only option.
Most Plush Course in CC Area
It’s always great to play here. It takes a few holes to acclimate to the softness of the fairways because every other course in the area in nothing but hard pan. Greens are pure. Lots of undulations and beautiful scenery. Bring your pitch mark tool.
Greens in Excellent Conditions
I had not played here in over 8 years. Course in great condition. Golf shop check-in fast and staff was great answering my questions.
Pace of play can be confusing since you play 9 twice.
Some on 1st and 2 nd 9.
After first time no wait.
