Palmetto Golf Course gets its name from the beautiful palmetto trees that line the fairways and meandering waterways. Although they add to the scenery, the trees double as a challenging element of the course since they can also affect shots. The golf course was designed by Dick Wilson, who has designed many other courses in the area. Water hazards come into play on 10 holes of the course, including the notable signature hole, which a 435-yard par-4. There are also sand bunkers strategically placed throughout. The Palmetto Golf Course facility boasts lighted practice facilities, including a practice putting green and driving range.

Slow play- fun course!

Slow pace of play, but I wasn’t too bothered by it. Good amount of water and most of the greens in good shape. Great day on the links

Greens are terrible

County operated. Greens are in need of work. They are absolutely horrible. Never any straight lines to cup, weeded and slouched. The rain has really affected them since they were last aerated. Other than that, overall a decent course

Good course and slow play

This course is well worth your money if you are a patient individual; the play speed is slow as as snail; patrons are not very considerate with other and take too long to play, invade other holes fairway in the middle of play, etc.

Old Faithful

Recent aerification has produced bumpy greens. Of course this is mandatory to keep things right. In another two to three weeks, the greens will be great. With a wonderful layout and a great staff it is my go-to course.

Course has Pros and cons.

This is my home course so I play it often.

Driving range is decent. Careful with some of the spots though, you might smash your club in the shading pole.

Course layout is awesome and price is very affordable. Unfortunately the course is not well maintained. Greens run very slow with small divots in them. Weeds and crab grass are everywhere. Fair ways are in tough shape. Don’t expect to score your best here.

Staff is friendly. Instructors for lessons are friendly and don’t make you feel stupid if your starting out.

Walked

Course didnt provide Carts after paying for them and no refund

We walked 18 holes with no push carts while carrying coolers in 87 degree florida sun. Easily the worst out of about 90 rounds of golf that ive played. Rangers were being rude and inconsiderate in regards to the conditions that they set up.

A good day golfing

Haven't played here in years. Despite the reviews, found a Hot Deal and it was definitely worth the play. Not your championship or resort course for sure, but its in decent to good condition and a good play nonetheless. Check your expectations and you'll enjoy a casual round on a course that doesn't charge those exorbitant South Florida prices. Would rate 3.5 if possible.

Good overall, considering not a lot a players the pace of play was a bit slow , I guess a Marshall presence would speed up play and allow faster players to go trough .
