Wolf Point Ranch Golf Course
Texas golf Xanadu
We had the chance to spend the day at Wolf Point Ranch with the golf course architect Mike Nuzzo, and it was a very special treat. This private estate course is the centerpiece of a 1,600-acre ranch near Port Lavaca and it's a wonderfully Scottish inspired layout, full of rumbling, dry fairways and big greens. Nuzzo built the course for Al Stanger to have a lot of flexibility and playability to it. There was a nice breeze the day we played and I really enjoyed using the ground and feeling shots into and with the wind.
I was expecting a marvelous and mythical Texas golf experience and I got it. What I didn't expect was that there is a small but comfortable clubhouse, a private runway large enough to land commercial aircraft, and camels. Camels? Yes. This place is something else. I hope when the property is sold, the owners make it more available to those avid golfers willing to make the visit.
