Course Reviews

A truly wonderful course and perhaps the best in south Texas. Challenging, well-maintained, etc. Your typically great Brownsville area golfing experience. Strongly, strongly recommended.

This is a wonderfully maintained course. Just wonderful. Striking views of the Rio GRande, long and challenging fairways. The par threes are a challenge and demand accuracy. The greens are just great. One warning, if you go after a heavy rainfall, you get lush green scenery, but the mosquitos are awful. Bring DEET after rains. Not necessary otherwise.

Great if you don't like bunkers. Greens are great except for 16 and parts of 7

This course is an absolute crap hole. Horrible course, even more horrible staff.

It is a bit pricey. If you are a novice golfer this may not be the course for you. House line some of the holes with signs reading "You are repsonsible for the ball you hit" As long as you have a sense of control you should do good.
