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.

There is no option during GolfNow registration to choose Senior or Veteran and the course does not honor those options when checking in. The course is great and fun to play.

Greens are prestine

If you have not been here ever or haven’t played it this year. It’s in the best shape ever. Best public course in the area by far. Bring your short game because the greens are excellent and bunkers are playable. Course is well manicured and a open friendly layout for any handicap

Fun course

The course is a fun links style course. Being on an island in the Gulf of Mexico, there is very little elevation changes. Plenty of water to navigate but very few trees. The course was in amazing condition considering the number of rounds that get played on it. If ever in Galveston, I recommend playing this course.
