need to change course discription

This is no longer a par 71 6900 yard golf course but a par 32 Executive 9 hole course featuring 5 par 4s and 4 par 3s. That being said the par 4s are everything you could want and require really good shots to score well. Basically you are on the fairway or you are in the native area. If you can find your ball in the native area you might have a 1 in 50 chance of hitting it out. Two of the par 3s can play from 110 yards to around 170 yards the other two can stretch to over 200 with number 18 to 250.

Green fees are for 18 holes which means playing the nine twice from different tees and there is a 3 hole par three warm up area as well as a complete practice facitily included with you tee time.

The course has been in great condition the last few times I have played it, but I feel that its a little pricey for having to play the same nine twice and not knowing how long you might wait to tee off on the second nine. The green fees are only $15 - $25 less than when it was a complete 18 hole course (whick was fabulous before Harvey) Being that its the only course for miles they have the market wrapped up. I play fairly often because I'm an addict.

From the friendly welcoming staff, to the wonderful course conditions, not one thing we could complain about… even with the overcast / windy conditions our day is forsure one to remember & we look forward to heading back down again real soon.

Lush

A little disappointed that it wasn’t an18 hole course. This is the best manicured course I have played on in two years. The greens and course were like carpets. Though greens could be more challenging. They also had a 3 hole executive course that was fun. Staff we’re really friendly and helpfully.
Overall a great experience!!!

Executive course

The course is in nice shape as it should be for an executive course (only par 3’s & 4’s)
Would be a great course for a family golf outing or getting together with some friends to just have fun.

Really wish

I really wish you were still an18 hole golf course. That being said. The course was in really good condition. Even at part 32 It has some very challenging holes. At $75.00 I think it's a little over priced. I have played many really good 18 hole golf courses for that amount or less ( not on Mustang Island). The price will not keep me from playing again!

Fun round of golf!

I had a great time playing this fun little track! The course was in great shape! Greens were very smooth and putted true. Course is short but tight! If you don’t hit it straight you better bring extra balls because just off most fairways are natural areas that have thick and deep vegetation. Only had to wait a few times. Would definitely play again!
