Come play Palmilla, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico
along the longest stretch of Port Aransas beachfront!


Welcome to Palmilla Beach Golf

Palmilla is fun, fresh, fast play and Texas’ only True Links course (think St. Andrews with its coastal setting of dunes, wide bunkers and fast greens).

Originally designed by Arnold Palmer, Palmilla is now a 12 hole course, including 9 holes of regulation play plus The Loop, our 3 hole short course.

Everyone is welcome. There is no membership required nor is there a dress code (though we do suggest you do wear clothes!). The only ‘requirement’ is that you and your friends have a great time on our greens.

Every golf booking comes with a complimentary golf cart and access to our driving range for 1 hour prior to your tee time.

Forget your clubs, no worries. Use ours. And when you are ready to relax, enjoy REDS Patio Bar, our 19th hole.

Golf Week

Fun, friendly…yet still challenging for serious golfers.

Texas Golf Insider

The best experience I’ve ever had on a course.

The Only TRUE LINKS in Texas

A “links” is the original style of golf course from Scotland (think “St. Andrews”). It includes coastal sand dunes, open parkland and the special turf that allows balls to “run” much further. Paspalum is our super-spongy turf and it’s so soft you’ll be tempted to play barefoot!

Palmilla is a 12 Hole Course

We have 9 holes (Par 32) of links-style golf, perfect for the occasional golfer with challenging tee boxes for the pros. The Loop is our quick 3 hole (Par 9) short course designed for those just starting out as well as experts looking to sharpen their short game.

Play 9, 12, 18 or 21!

Play our course your way. Play a 12 Pack, that’s our 9 hole (Par 32) course plus The Loop (Par 9). Or go for the 21 Pack, twice around the 9 holes plus The Loop! Or concentrate on your short game with a double loop on The Loop.

Electric Golf Boards

Surf the Turf with one of our new electric Golf Boards. These motorized scooters cruise at up to 14 MPH!
