This course has 18 temporary greens and should be closed for play or offered at discount rate! No notice was posted at the counter and was even told that temp status is on line. I would not have booked if I saw this temp green on GolfNow!
Staff was very friendly and helpful, tee boxes were not great, fairways were mostly good, but there were temporary greens that we did not know about since they are re-doing their greens, overall not bad and would recommend if the greens were not temporary or at a low price.
Nice people but…..
First of all, let’s preface this with we were all hit hard by the freeze this year and the entire island is still recovering. I get it. However, when we arrived and checked in, they were very nice. Check in was quick and they loaded our bags onto the carts and even had ice in the cart ice chests for us….a definite plus. Mosquitoes were horrid but that is expected as all of the rain is making it The Hunger Games for them. Pros, it was a decent layout with wide open fairways. Sand bunkers were in decent shape as well.l and the scenery was nice. Golf carts were nice with no mechanical issues or bumpy rides.
Now the cons, they did not tell us they were using temporary greens until we pulled up to the first hole and the starter advised us. It would have been nice to know before we booked it and at least, before we paid. Price was slightly reduced but still about what we generally pay at better courses during the week. The temporary greens were definitely not rolled. It felt like you were putting in your front yard or a pasture that had just been mowed. Definitely a lot of members and residence skipping around everywhere which interrupted the flow of the round. Furthermore, judging distances is not normally a problem for me based on yardage markers and paces, but there was no way to know yardages to these very small slightly mowed areas. I normally use my app for GPS yardage but that does no good with temp greens. Overall, the course just needs a lot of work but they are very nice people at this location. I would return after further reviews and evaluation of the golf course by others to determine if they get this course in better shape. It’s hard to say if I would recommend another course as this is the only one in South Padre we have played.
Nice course watch for 4 hole players
Nice course; you will encounter retirees playing 3-4 random holes from time to time.
Play it! It is a fun course
It's a good layout, fair and fun. It was smacked by the Feb winter vortex and the course has recovered nicely. There are tough spots on the course grounds, but it's April. I am going to play it again this week.
The Pro Shop staff, Sean is exceptional in terms of his Customer Service, even to a tourist!
Greens were great staff was very friendly piece of play was perfect
Decent and improving track
Getting a lot of play, and a lot of slow players recently.
Good news is that the ownership is plowing a lot if those green fees back into improvements.
Going to 10-11 minute intervals would help some, but still enjoyable round of golf with up to 5 different tee boxes to pick from
Decent track. Convenient
If you’re on SPI for vacation this is the closest course and a decent track. Coming into Spring 2021,the management is obviously upgrading the fairways etc.
Bartender dude in restaurant “”Divots” is the only real downer. Everyone else is very friendly. He’s costing them a lot of sales.
Lots of potential—for what that’s worth
Fairways are hard and shaggy but probably expected for this time of year. Greens need a lot more work. Was told they lost several of them last fall so I guess they need time to recover but that doesn’t explain all the old hole marks you can see on every green. Their driving range is an open field with poles sticking up from the ground...no landing areas cut and their range balls are all old lost/water balls with very few dimples left. Still they charge a premium fee for their use...$6 for a small warmup bucket! Most disappointing thing is pace of play. Course is amid a housing community that caters to “winter Texans” so most of the groups I saw were seniors, women, and couples. No one is moving too briskly and always seem to be bunched together for everyone’s shot instead of going to their own ball and being prepared to hit when it’s their turn. Slow is an understatement but not in the looking for lost balls/poor proficiency kind of way. Too much lallygagging and BSing in the fairways and on the greens. Saw multiple “Rangers” driving around but no one talking to the slow groups about keeping up their pace. I’d recommend the course for its layout after the greens come in a little better but would warn not to expect to play in four hours or less. Would NOT recommend as a practice facility. Bar and grill is affordable and what we ate was very good
Excellent, fun design with tee boxes for all levels, it seems. On course staff was very friendly and pro shop staff Robert and Shawn went above and beyond. We will be back!
