It's All Good

From tee boxes to greens everyhting was in top condition. Similar to many British courses (as seen on TV) this one has you face the wind on half the holes and be helped by it on the other half.

We were paired with a local who was more than happy to share all the nuiances of the course. It was like we had our own caddie steering us around the few quirks the course has to offer.

We highly recommend and plan to play again later in the week.

Favorite track in this area

The course was in excellent conditions
It took us almost 4 hours for a round
The snack cart came by very often
Only bad thing I have to say is about those darn par 5 holes, that they will get you!
Can't wait to play again!

New Range Balls are in!!

Major kudos to the staff at Moody Gardens Golf Course for taking action and adding new range balls this week! They must pay attention to reviews as they also filled in damaged area on the range as well. I posted a review on Saturday and by Tuesday they came through. This course really is a gem. The quality of the fairways for a seaside course are exceptional. The other very impressive feature that is not well known is how well this course handles heavy rain. Drainage is exceptional and while they may have to designate as cart path only, rarely is it for more than a day or two. Very friendly and accommodating staff make this a top public Texas course year after year.

Excellent Fairways, very good greens, horrible range balls

I play this course often. The spring rains and late sun have really improved the fairways over the last 6 weeks. Greens much improved as aerification marks are disappearing. Challenging with varied tees for all skill levels. Biggest issue is the horrendous condition of the range balls and lack of basic maintenance of range after use. The balls are simply the worst balls of any course I have ever played. The range gets used heavily and I don’t understand why they don’t fill in fresh divots to allow for recovery. Basic stuff that should not be an issue for the cost of play and high volume of play this course receives.
