Spring Time Conditions

The greens and fairways were better than average but not excellent. Tee boxes were in poor condition. Tee boxes were flat but had different types of grasses and were about 1" tall. Fertilizer has been applied recently. Course should be in excellent shape in a month. The course is still worth playing in its current state.

Nice muni course

Moody Gardens is the only choice for golf on Galveston Island unless you have access to GCC. It’s a nice public course with plenty of challenge. Water and wind, and lots of both!

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.
