Great course. Especially when using a hot deal. There were a few spots on the fairways but for the most part it was in excellent condition. Greens were very consistent. The price is kinda steep for twighlight but if you can get a Hot Deal, it's well worth it. The driving range is very nice and staff is very accomodating. They even have towels in ice chests to cool you off at certain holes. Perfect for an August day.
Could. Be Better
Fairways were rough. Greens were good. Sand not raked. It's been better in the past.
Links golf on steroids
I have played a few links style courses and this one must be on steroids! Being in July, it was obviously quite warm. I am from just north of Galveston so I am used to the heat / humidity. There was a nice breeze which really adds to the excitement to the course. I really like the greens and fairways - the grass is like Moody Gardens in Galveston which is tolerant to salt water. There were a few spots on the fairways where the mowers must have cut it a little too close.
very nice course and right in port A
Greens were great. A few fairways needed repair which was being done while we were there. Will definitely play here again.
The course is in excellent condition
Beautiful golf course. If your looking for a challenging course this is the one for you. My two sons and I had a blast. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning to play again.
This course was VERY enjoyable to play. The greens were in great condition. The fairways were a bit tight and quite challenging. It's tough to beat the setting with the ocean in the background. I assumed this would be a great course and it still exceeded my expectations. Incredible value. I look forward to playing again soon.
Nice golf course.
Very nice well maintained golf course. Links type by the ocean like Saint Andrews golf course in Scotland. Plays very similar with the wind.
Cool coastal golf on Texas Gulf Coast
Truly one of the most unique golf courses in Texas, Palmilla Beach provides a taste of links golf right next to the Gulf of Mexico, complete with salt air, sea breezes and the challenge that comes with having to battle the prevailing winds. Though certainly not a true links course, it requires a different sort of golf. Run-up shots are an option when the course is dry, but pot bunkers loom as does natural dune vegetation. Couple that with a terrific restaurant and summer entertainment options, and you've got a nice spring-summer destination.
Make sure you stay on the fairway with all of your shots, if you don't you'll never find your ball.
Very scenic, narrow and unforgiving
Course has a couple holes on the ocean and is in really great shape. Has a number of blind landing zones from the tee into narrow fairways with a ocean breeze to deal with.
When I played course was kinda beaten up. Was told the area had been getting a lot of rain. Played better courses for far less green fees. It was just OK.
Great course, bring extra golf balls
The new club house and bar are awesome. Highly recommend this course. Plays a bit tough at times but very enjoyable.
Nice But A Bit Overrated
It's got Arnie's name on it and has a couple of beautiful holes along the coast but I'm not sure I'd consider it a Top 10 course in Texas. Granted, I played it in winter and am sure it would be more appealing to the eyes in the Spring or Summer. Several holes with ground under repair. The back 9 was more beautiful than the front 9. A slope of 108 from the whites seems low considering the thickness of the rough. Mosquitoes were bad on first couple of holes but a cool front blew in and saved us.
Overall, excellent outing!!!!
We couldn't have asked for better weather -- low 60s and extremely calm. The course was in excellent condition. and challenging for a first-timer. Definitely best course in South Texas.
Thanks GolfNow for the excellent prices.
Wish we would have known about the mosquitoes, though. Bring plenty of repellent.
The absolute best golf course in South Texas. Well worth the money and time spent out there. Thank you Golf Now for the great price.
Beautiful Day on Course
Beautiful course to play. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Holes along the shipping channel are always beautiful.
Weather was great view was spectacular and I was treated like a member. Great time
Gulf coast challenge.
Challenge your game where there are no trees. Just don't hit it in the rough.
Enjoyed the course. Practice facility is top notch. Greens were quick. Over all a great course in this area.
