BEST RESORT COURSE IN SOUTH TEXAS

Without a doubt, this course is the best layout, most playable, most scenic, and best overall course in south Texas. The only course in this area that has true greens. Waterfront view on several holes. Forced carries for every tee box, but reduce as you go forward. Will be back. Soon.

My Absolute Favorite!

I've played resort golf in Florida, California, and all over, and this course is by far my favorite. I've played here for years, and the course is always in great shape, Because of the coastal breezes, it never truly plays the same. The views are amazing whether you are on the bayfront holes or on a manmade water hazard. I highly recommend South Padre Island Golf Club for anyone coming to the area. It's by far the best course in the entrie Rio Grande Valley!!

Rude staff

Got treated like crap the second we entered the premises. They said my shirt didn't meet course requirements even though it's the same shirt Tiger wore at the Masters. Then some course ranger accosted us at the 1st green demanding the see a receipt we didn't have. So we said screw it and we left. They wouldn't refund our round either because I booked on Golf Now, so that was $150 down the drain. Will never play at that trashy course filled with rude employees EVER again.

Expected more

The price is high and the golf course conditions are very bad. Greens are well and some fairways. However there are areas without maintenance. The type of grass varies between holes.
The only reason to play again is because of distance to SPI.

SPI golf

This is the only golf course on SPI we play it every summer while visiting SPI. Tee Times at 11: 54 was extremely hot with heat index above 105 however clouds roiled in on the back nine which made it bearable. We did not see any other players until the back 9 and it slowed extremely. We were a 3 some and waited on a 3 some on every hole on the back.. we saw the Marshall twice but play was still very slow.. The greens are slow & looked a little rough. Rates are too high for the quality. Of the course.

Great well managed course

The golf course is great. Pro shop staff not the friendliest. We have golfed this course for the past couple of weeks and the previous staff were much more friendly. Not sure if it was because we got a deal or if this particular staff member was having a bad day!

Day at SPI GC not spoiled by windy weather

Enjoyed the day at SPI. Given the time of year, it was in pretty good condition particularly the green complexes. Sand traps were exceptionally well maintained. Would certainly look to play it again in less-stressful weather and I'm sure it would be even more enjoyable.

Great course

Front 9 especially has some scenic signature holes on the water. Great conditions. The white tees are perfect for those who don’t crush drives. Great layout with fairway bunkers.
