Another Honor for Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course

Laredo’s Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course Cited as One of “The Most Beautiful Courses in Texas” by GOLF Magazine

(Laredo, TX) — The Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course, designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., has captured yet another accolade.

GOLF Magazine has named The MAX as one of the 12 “Most Beautiful Golf Courses in Texas” that the public can play.  The MAX was rated seventh.  Five resort property courses and two TPC facilities were listed.

In writing about The MAX, the publication stated: “It’s a tribute to the Robert Trent Jones II firm that the design and the aesthetics mesh seamlessly.”  The par-3 15th hole was pictured and called a “crowd-pleaser” for its dramatic view of the Rio Grande.

Earlier this year GOLF Magazine published its ranking of the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play,” along with a listing of the best courses in each state.  Of the 20 Texas public facilities cited, The MAX earned the 15th position.

Other significant rating awards for The MAX include Golf Digest’s designation as “One of the Best New Courses of 2013;” and Golfweek’s listing in 2013 and 2014 as “One of the Best Municipal Courses in the U.S.”
