Greens and ball washers

Greens I heard were new. Certainly need to be rolled.

No ball washers or water on course

If staying at SPI this is closest course. Course was nice and staff was very friendly. Was a bit surprised that carts didn’t have GPS. Had played a muni day before in San Antonio that had gps that was much cheaper than this course. Also think some more visible yardage markers on some of the holes would help for first timers.
Will play again next year when I come back to SPI

Poor Maintenance

Course has temporary greens that we weren’t told about till we got to the tee box so you are putting in the middle of the fairway. Every tee box was in poor condition. They were working on hole 6 and had the tee box moved up to where it was a 30 yard par 3. We weren’t able to get a refund on the back 9 and the bar tender was very moody to us. Wouldn’t recommend playing here for a while till the course is done being worked on.

Temp Greens

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.

No aerification notice….

Playing green in middle of fairway at the regular price? That’s a huge NO-NO!

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.

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!
