A well maintained course.

This was my second time to play Moody Gardens. Both trips were fantastic. The greens are well maintained and consistent. I really liked the course having five par 5's and five par 3's. Thanks for the great round of golf!

Excellent round at Moody Gardens

We stayed at the hotel and enjoyed the amenities on Friday. I woke up early and played 18 Saturday morning. We finished around 11 am and joined the family for some fun in Galveston. All in all, it was a great time.

NICE GALVESTON TX RESORT COURSE

Fairways in great shape. Nice and soft. Greens were punched a week earlier but still had a nice roll on the puts.

Slow play

There was a tournament group just before me, so it made for a slow round.
These things do happen,.
Restaurant staff was best part of the day, very friendly.

Great Course

Honestly didn't know what to expect. Pictures can always be deceiving, but the fairways and greens were very well kept. Plenty of water to get you in trouble, which made it challenging, especially on the back 9. The fairways got a little tighter on the back 9. Played a twosome, had a 3 in front of us and single behind us and everyone maintained a good pace. Really enjoyed the experience overall. Ladies at the bar and young gentlemen at the pro-shop were very friendly. Look forward to playing next time I'm down on vacation.

Great Course. Terrible Staff.

The golf course is really fun to play and very challenging. When we started the wind was reasonable but by the back 9 it picked up and made the holes play 3 to 4 clubs longer into the wind. The greens were almost perfect and rolled true all day long. The lady who we checked in with was so rude I almost said something but decided to let it pass. Other than that it was a great day, well worth the price and will definitely play again if I’m back in the area.

Challenging

I am a 6 handicap . Played this course for the first time in a 20mph wind. Very difficult to play . Not very much room off the tee without penalty . Deep thick rough can save errant shots but difficult to find your ball . Greens very good and easy to putt .

Starter

I was there as a single. I let the starter on the driving range know that if he had an opening he could send me off since I was by myself. There was about a 10 -15 minute gap between a group and a foursome and he wouldn’t let me go. Instead he put me with a foursome that was teeing off in about a half an hour. I had to wait for two more foursomes an a threesome. Unnecessary judgement by the starter. I could have gotten through the course a lot quicker as I was in from out of town. I was gone that day for seven hours.

An awesome day on the course

I am very new to the game myself and was a bit concerned on how things would go. My concerns were quickly alleviated when we spoke with the gentleman in the pro shop. He explained how everything worked and directed us to the starter at the range. This gentleman was also quite friendly and just told us to have fun even though we explained how very terrible we played the game. There was ice near the carts to fill your ice chests and the beverage cart always showed up in the nick of time extra vision fluid. The course was beautiful with some of the nicest fairways I've seen. We were expecting a stuck up atmosphere, but it turned out that everyone we ran into from the staff the other players were as friendly as they could be. I will most definitely play here again!

Great course

The course was a lot of fun and the layout is great. It seems like every time I play here the course is in phenomenal shape. The greens where tight fast and smooth rolling. I highly recommend playing here, just be ready to deal with some wind.

One of my favorites.

Wonderful break from the dingy Bermuda courses everywhere around here. One of the best conditioned courses in the area and a gem worth the drive. One of my favorite places to be. Breezes make the course play cooler than the other mainland options. I've been playing here for years, on and off and this round, the course was in as good of shape as it has ever been in! Typically over priced, but a hot deal tee time or discount and it is a top choice. Great layout that gets better every time you play it. Wide open, but with the typically strong wind, can be a true test. I'm also and aviation enthusiast and pilot, so the constant air show next door is always great on top of the golf! Burger was good.
