Affectionately known by locals as “The Max,” The Max Mandel Municipal Golf Course in Laredo, Texas, is a renowned golf facility named after Max Mandel, a philanthropist and prominent figure in the community. Designed by acclaimed architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. and built by Landscapes Unlimited, the course opened in 2013 to meet the growing demand for a premier golfing destination.
Spanning over 270 acres along the Rio Grande, the course offers stunning views of the river and the Mexican landscape. With its natural contours seamlessly integrated into the design, the course provides a challenging yet fair layout that golfers across the state seek out.
Featuring an 18-hole championship course, Max Mandel Municipal Golf Course measures 7,200 yards with strategically placed bunkers, water hazards, and plenty of the risk-reward choices that RTJ II is known for. It presents a par-72 challenge that demands precision and thoughtful play.
Beyond the course, the facility offers a driving range, practice greens, and a well-stocked pro shop. The clubhouse includes a restaurant and event spaces, making it a popular venue for tournaments and social gatherings.
As one of South Texas’ finest golfing destinations, Max Mandel Municipal Golf Course has earned its reputation as a premier facility in southern Texas.
The collaboration between Robert Trent Jones Jr., Landscapes Unlimited, and the City of Laredo resulted in a course that stands the test of time by continuously being recognized as one of the premier municipally-owned golf courses in the United States. Landscapes Golf Management oversees day-to-day operations at the facility.
