“Nice course. Very windy”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Played there on a sunny cool and very windy day. There was one hit towards the water that was 100 yrds shirt because of the wind.
Rentals (Cobra's) were in good condition.
Good overall service.

“Great golf location”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is a well maintained course. Very nice fairways and great views. Lots of water so it's pretty challenging, especially for a right handed slice on the back 9. The price is comparable to some of the other courses in the area, and it's very reasonable if you're a city resident. It's awesome to see the old flight museum planes take off and land on the airport runway next to several of the holes on the back 9.

We loved this course. Well kept, nice clubhouse with good staff. We went with a Groupon but noted the regular pricing was terrific.
This is a challenging but fair course with water on nearly every hole. Interesting layout. It's close to the airport so lots of helicopters coming and going but also is a bird santuary with some we have never seen before.
It played great for time and we loved this course. By far the best we played our whole golf trip to Texas. Wish we could have played it again.

“Well maintained, sporty Course”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Our golf group (4 couples) spent four days in Galveston on our annual 'outing', and played here three times. The staff couldn't have been nicer, allowing our injured golfer to ride along without paying. The course is short but challenging, with lots of water. Bring extra balls unless you always hit it straight! Lots of interesting birds, including Rosiette Spoonbills. The greens fees are very reasonable. We played the Senior rate before 9 AM for $15 for nine holes during the week. We would finitely play it again.

“What an incredible transformation!”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

I had not played the course since the renovation and they have done a remarkable job! The course layout is fantastic. The greens were immaculate and the fairways were in very good shape. Those course used to be burned out, hard as a rock, and tired looking and now it is a delight. The staff was friendly and the pro shop was stocked with everything you could ever need. All at a very reasonable price. I will definitely be back.
