Loaded with water hazards, bunkers, and mesquite trees, L.E. Ramey is a tough little course that was one of the best courses in the state when it was built in the 1970s. This is a solid design with tree-lined fairways and large greens in outstanding condition. The course was named after Kingsville doctor and avid golfer Lindell Ramey

The course has changed management many times over the years, fluctuating back and forth between private owners and Kleberg County. The course suffers during drought conditions with dried-out fairways that cannot be helped by the aging irrigation system. Locals have pushed for private ownership to ensure that the course is well maintained, but no takers have surfaced.

From the middle tees this course plays to a reasonable 6,185 yards, highlighted by par 3s that can be reached with a 6 iron or less. From the tips the course is much, much longer (almost 7,000 yards).

Getting there : From Hwy 77 south, exit Prant Rd. and turn left. Follow the signs to the course.

    The course is a well made and paced course however the deteriorating greens and fairways make it an even more difficult course. It has gone through a change of hands again and appears to be getting set up with a new irrigation system that will hopefully return the fairways and greens back to what they were in the 70s I hear. All in all the staff is excellent and rate to play is nice for a good practice course. They have some holes that will challenge you and make you consider if a full shot is worth it or if laying up is your best option; the ever elusive eagle.
