Kingsville's 18 hole public golf course was started by Dr. L. L. Ramey. In 1973 Dr. Ramey petitioned the US government for some acres located south of the Kingsville Naval Air Base. The Navy Base had a surplus of land available to donate; and on March 16, 1973 the United States government donated 533 acre to Kleberg County for recreational use.
With the help of his hired architect and PGA golfer Tommy Aycock, Dr. Ramey designed a golf course to suit the needs of the Kingsville community. L. B. Ramey park is located on FM 3320 and Escondido Rd.
