Golf near South Padre Island comes with a few distractions
Over on GolfTexas.com, we just posted a story I wrote on El Angel course at Rancho Viejo (Texas) Resort & Country Club. Located just a few miles from South Padre Island, the timing couldn’t be better or worse, depending on your perspective.
This week might not be the best time to travel down to South Padre Island if you’re just looking to take in a little golf. I invite you to turn on MTV this week to see what I’m talking about.
It’s that little mayhem called spring break, and I’m told it’s a little wilder than when I was down there 25 years ago. One can only imagine as 100,000 crazy college kids (and some who aren’t in college) push local law enforcement to the limits.
But wait a few weeks, and head down there if you want a fairly inexpensive golf vacation, some terrific dining and some pretty nice beaches (assuming they get everything cleaned up.) My recommendation: Check out South Padre Island Golf Club and Tierra Santa Golf Club as well as the other course at Rancho Viejo, El Diablo.
