Planting again

Aransas County Navigation District (ACND) commissioners recently authorized the re-planting of the Little Bay mitigation area with cordgrass to meet the requirements of the district’s Army Corps of Engineers permit. BEI employees re-planted the area this past week. Hurricane Hanna substantially destroyed the mitigation area, located in Little Bay, off Broadway. The original mitigation site was required when the ACND built the groin at the end of Market Street. Hurricane Harvey destroyed that site. “We had to come up with an alternative site, and it was doing quite well, until Hanna,” said ACND Harbor Master Keith Barrett. “That storm tore up the beds.” In order to remain in compliance with its permit, the ACND has to replant the mitigation area. Before Hanna, the mitigation area met the requirement of 50% survival after 60 days, but had yet to reach the higher percentage required for “coverage” across multiple years. The public is strongly encouraged to not disturb the area, which is marked by orange mesh fencing.

GOLFING

Rockport Country Club
Nestled between Aransas Bay and Copano Bay on the Texas Live Oak Peninsula golfers have praised the Rockport Country Club's par 71, 18-hole championship golf course since 1983. Designer Bill Coore, along with golfing legend Jimmy Demaret has created one of Texas' premier championship golf courses. Previously ranked among the Dallas Morning News Top 50 private clubs in Texas, Rockport Country Club offers you the complete golfing experience.

Live Oak Country Club
Live Oak is a private 9-hole course, named appropriately for the ancient live oak trees that line the fairways. This short layout (2,878 yards) is flat, making it perfect for the walking golfer. Nothing too fancy here- just a few water hazards and some random bunkers scattered throughout.

The design features one par 5 that plays 500 yards (No. 3), but the longest par 4 is 335 yards (No. 4 is only 277 yards), so you can afford to hit an iron off the tee and avoid the large oaks to either side.

Getting there : Exit 1069 off of I-35 and turn left. Travel about 7 miles to the course and look for the entrance on the right side of the road.
