Finest Public Golf Course

I had a tremendous golf outing at Moody Gardens today! I even played well. The ball on the greens were rolling nicely, not too slow, not too fast. Lots of hazards, but one can play a greater score with repetition.
I am really looking forward to playing again and again!!

Superb condition, excellent greens

Course is in overall great condition, it even appears fairways are beginning to fluff up a bit due to recent warm weather. By far best greens I've played on in Texas. Staff is superb as I recently had out of state guests and we were treated royally. Great practice area and range. Great birds and wildlife. Had to be 70 turtles on the shore of #7.

Cold day..for Texas

Windy which is the norm here. Nobody on the course which made for a quick round. Greens hold well but still roll fast. Best greens in the area by far. Be back soon.

Love this course BUT...

Great course and worth the drive from Katy but that darn wind will add 5-10 strokes to your card. Todays wind was ONLY blowing 22mph. Literally a 2-3 club wind. It was crazy. Still love the course.

Great course, good challenge playing in wind. TERRIBLE MOSQUITOS

Course is in good shape. Mosquitos are terrible. The only saving grace is that the wind is so strong all the mosquitos can’t get ahold of you. Overall good time.

Nice layout. Poor mgmt

Greens have gotten bad since NOBODY makes any effort to repair ball marks on green, and mgmt dies NOTHING to police or encourage basic player ettiquette. Likewise for fairway divots but less of an effect on your game.

Little if no marshall presence on course lately.... cutbacks ?
