South Padre Island Golf Club
Staff is wonderful, course was great. Highly recommended. You slice the ball and this is NOT the course for you.

This course used to be one of the best in the Rio Grande Valley - it was very much of a disappointment to play there. Greens, fairways, and course maintenance in general were poor.

the layout is great,eespecially the view.
My golf buddy and I always enjoy play this beautiful course. Its so well maintained and challenging holes. the greens were slower than usual made a lot of 3 putts. The mosquitoes were bad, due to , all the recent rains. I can't wait for my two brothers to coming down and play this course.

Mosquito paradie still fun to play
Take a lot of DEET if it has rained! It is A fun course but their sand traps need a lot of work some were mud, the others, lakes. They have great rental clubs and very nice staff. Overall a good day of golf if you are at SPI.

The course was beautiful. The bay breeze helped dissipate some of the heat. The course wasn't as difficult as I was led to believe. Even though there was some water in play, I loved the that there were lots of sand traps. The only complaint I have is that the first three holes are nearly unplayable because of the rising sun in your eyes to greet you for your 7:45 am tee time. Lost a few golf balls that way.

Bunkers need work
Several of the bunkers only had dirt and no sand. The bunkers that were playable had new sand and difficult to play.

Great Layout but course needs some TLC
I always enjoy playing the South Padre Island Course when I come down to South Padre Island for vacation. I had not played the course in at least 5 years and this was the worst condition I saw the course in. The greens were fine and the fairways were decent. But all of the bunkers were in very poor shape. This is a fun course to play, just needs a little bit of TLC to get it back to the course I remembered playing years ago.

Great course, Great View!
This course sits about 10 miles from South Padre Island, so the coastal air is always in play. Only 3 holes play around the coast, (#3, #4, #5). The signature hole par-3 #3 is beautiful, but you should club up a few to reach the green. The further back your tee selection, the more brush you'll have to deal with to make the fairway. Fairways are smooth and rolling. There are a few greens that have two tiers, or more.
Bottom line, if you have a consistent swing, you'll be fine. If you are a little wild off the tee, bring extra golf balls.
