I was not impressed when I played this course; as a matter of fact I was deeply disappointed in the course condition. The only bright aspects of the course were the fairways (even then they were slightly on par). The greens were terribly fast and provided a challenge for players who have played slower greens. The sandtraps were in poor shape and in great need of TLC. Some were filled with dirt, while others were true sandtraps. The dirt filled sandtraps could really damage your clubs if one chose to play their ball from the bunker. The green fees the course asks for is greatly overpriced, due to the poor condition of the entire golf course. Making the drive from the Mid-Valley to Laguna Madre, one would expect great course conditions; however that was not the case on that day.

I love this golf is so beautiful! I played horrible, but who cares when you get to enjoy such a great view.

Awesome Course. Very windy when i played which made it difficult. Sand traps, especially the fairway traps, were dug in deep, adding to the difficulty. The view of Padre across the bay is amazing. GPS golf carts. surrounding neighborhood with boat dock driveways adds to the scenery. Very Pricey, but everything in the area is. if on vacation, definetly plan a day to play this course. Try and play early though. I made the mistake of playing twilight hours to help save some money on vacation in August. Temp was 105 with very hot wind blowing in from the bay. That morning it was in the upper 70's.

One of the best maintained courses in the Brownsville area. A great course when not too windy, but this is not often the case. Try Brownvsille courses if the seabreeze is a bit strong. Also, much pricier than most courses in the valley and not really worth the extra money.
