Great bang for your buck

Great time out at Moody! Course is difficult with all the marsh and water making you have to hit the fairway but the greens are full and roll true. Highly recommend.

Great day out

Desk was friendly and helpful. Loved the layout of the entire course. Highly recommend you stay in the middle of the fairway. Challenging at times with plenty of water and tall grass around the edges of the water. Fabulous greens. Excellent course for higher handicapped and excellent players. Totally enjoyed myself.

A local favorite!

Maybe the toughest conditions I've ever played in.. however, this course is always a treat to play. One of my personal favorites. This is not a bermuda grass course, so conditions are always some of the best in the area. Its a little hike from the mainland, but always worth it and good to be out on the island.

Staff was very friendly and I had a burger in the grill, which was pretty good. I'll be back - my favorite course in the area on GolfNow.

Perfect greens and fairways. Rough in the wind, but fun course. A must play in the Houston area.

Great course, bad mosquitos!!!!

Great course, greens were awesome, Fairway is for Craig. The mosquitoes were overwhelmingly horrible. You can’t stop for more than a second, even when you’re driving there swarming the golf cart. It made for a very unpleasurable experience.
