Good public track

This course is generally in very good shape. The recent hurricane loused up the bunkers and many palms were killed by the winter freeze. Greens and fairways were pretty good!

Great day!

No issues. Was not really crowded, pace of play was great. A single joined our threesome on the 3rd hole and that created the perfect pace to keep us from another foursome that were just ahead of us. The Marshal / starter was very nice and told us there wasn’t anyone teeing off for a while to just take our time. Course was in magnificent shape as usual with sand trap work going on, so the traps weren’t great but that is to be expected from time to time.

Tee to Green is the pristine

Very challenging and fun course! Great fairways and greens

Would like more direction on tee boxes and they are working on bunkers!

I believe this will be even better next year!

Great staff and facilities

Great value

This course was in great condition. We were impressed by the greens. Our round was on a Tuesday afternoon with open holes in front of our group and no one behind us. Could not ask for a better experience.

Great Fun Course

Moody Gardens a great golf course. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Jerry the starter makes sure he does the right thing for everyone and makes sure there are no gaps that will create issues later in the round. Both times I have played here I was paired with equal players, who were just as friendly as the staff. Course conditions are wonderful and the course is challenging.
