Great golf course
Course is in good shape except for the hundreds of palm trees that need to be trimmed

The BEST Gulf Coast Course in Texas
Moody Gardens Golf Course in Galveston Texas is by far best on the gulf coast and so worth a visit if you want an enjoyable experience in golf. The course has a great layout, challenging holes, and is well manicured . Wind is often a factor, but this is very nice in a usually steamy hot summer. Pace of play is never an issue with an astute starting guide. I highly recommend this City Course.

Great Course But They Harris’s You
I played the course in June 2018. It was a fun course and in great shape. The only problem I have with it is I was passing through and will not be back that way again. I have been trying to get them to unsubscribe me for over TWO YEARS!!!
This course best value and friendly staff!
First time playing Moody gardens golf and I would highly recommend it! Even though conditions were a bit difficult because of the wind course conditions very good and layout was player friendly. First-time playing seaside course in Galveston but like challenging courses so you need to flight your ball per weather conditions, all in all very good golf course!
Your feedback is important to us, lv370540. Thank you for sharing your 5-star experience. We look forward to seeing you again at the course soon! Thanks for choosing Moody Gardens Golf Course.

Slow play by an old foursome kept speed of play slow and would not allow playing thru.
Thanks for coming out to the course, and we hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Thank you for taking the time to give us a great rating! We hope to have you back at the course again very soon!
Thanks so much for the 5 star rating, Harold!

Greens were the best I played in this region. Course was in great shape despite all the heat and then the rain
Wow, thanks so much for your great compliment! We are looking forward to welcoming you back again very soon!
Course was in perfect condition. Very friendly and helpful staff. Course wide open but also challenging.
Thanks so much for your great feedback! We're so glad you had such a great time. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
C’mon, Rake the Traps!
To be fair, greens & fairways were in great shape. However, traps haven’t been raked in months. I realize they don’t want players to rake but there’s no reason the can’t be raked once a day. Some had grass growing in them & many were almost unplayable. This course is too expensive for that. Come on Moody,, you’re better than that!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we appreciate the feedback hope you'll give us another try in the near future.
Beautiful layout, greens and fariways excellent
Everything was great except the bunkers. We should have been told the bunkers were unplayable and had an appropriate discount.
Thanks for your feedback, and we will work to make improvements for your next visit!
Great Course... Not so great locals
Very nice course. Lots of challenge on back nine. Very windy down here on coast. Played as a single. Ran into 4some on hole 7. They would not let me play through. When asked, they said "We would let you play through but you're not going anywhere" and drove off. Wouldn't have been so bad, but they were terrible. I would have to wait for 6-8 of their shots before I could finally hit. So much for "let faster players play through".
Thanks so much for your review. We are glad to see you rated us 5 stars, and we appreciate the feedback. We hope to see you back here again soon.
Thanks so much for the awesome rating!
