Keep the Palmilla Beach Club and Golf Resort on your list of things to do in Port Aransas. It is expected to re-open in the fall after repairs and renovations necessitated by Hurricane Harvey. Port Aransas’ only golf course is closed for repairs due to Hurricane Harvey, but efforts are underway to get it going again.

Plans are to have the Palmilla Beach Resort and Golf Club open by October, a spokesman said.

The course is located south of Beach Access Road 1A along State Highway 361. It’s normally open to the public 363 days a year, closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas days.

The Scottish links-style design features Gulf views, rolling fairways, deep stackedwall bunkers, tightly mowed approaches and quick-rolling greens.

The par 71 course measures approximately 7,000 yards from the back tees and a more modest 6,500 from the regular men’s tees.

The first three holes, on the west side of State Highway 361, are connected to the remaining 15 holes on the east side of the highway by a golf cart bridge.

It’s an Arnold Palmer Signature course. That means the late pro golf legend kept an eye on the project throughout design and construction.

The course offers several levels of green fees from standard to senior, junior, military and twilight rates.
