Change of Management

The City of Galveston and Moody Gardens, Inc. signed and executed an agreement officially turning over the management of the Municipal Golf Course on Friday, February 2, 2007.


Introducing the new Moody Gardens® Golf Course, formerly Galveston Municipal Golf Course, featuring a $16 million comprehensive renovation.

Renowned golf course architects Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design have created a design that keeps the best historical features of the layout while significantly improving certain holes and overall course flow.

The renovation includes new turf grass, green complexes, elevations, irrigation, drainage, cart paths, greens, and a full clubhouse renovation.

Golf Course

Many exciting new features and benefits are in store for the golf course and we look forward to your patronage in the years ahead.

A First-Class Public Golf Course

The multimillion dollar investment is a contribution to the city on the part of Moody Gardens® and the culmination of the vision to provide a first-class public golf course for local residents and visitors to the Island. The City of Galveston will retain ownership of the newly renovated facility, which will be managed by Moody Gardens®.

A Seaside Course with a Tropical Feel

Jacobsen Hardy’s attention to detail provides Galveston residents with a premiere public golf course and also adds to Galveston's many tourist attractions. Among the many improvements the course features Paspalum turf, designed for seaside golf courses and providing an outstanding playing surface.

To keep playing surfaces in the top condition, a new water treatment plant and irrigation system were included in the renovation project. This improvement in water quality will optimize playing surfaces and also provide water for landscaped areas around the clubhouse and on the golf course.

The course will retain its seaside tropical feel with nearly 500 palm trees that have either been moved or added to the golf course. Coupled with selected use of upland and lowland "native areas" the golf course will dramatically improve its overall aesthetic look and feel.
