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.

Palmetto still offering GREAT Value golf!

Love Palmetto for what it is..great, affordable golf. Thought the course was in overall good shape given the amount of gold cart traffic it endures. Some greens were showing signs of fungus impact. But overall, this course still delivers a nice, long course experience while also forgiving for those who veer off the fairway!

Greens hurting

Greens being sanded, but in very rough shape with or without. Just not well attended to. They should ask every golfer to take out one weed per green. That would address the basic problem in a few weeks. Or, get a team of HS students to do the same over the summer.

Some bunkers had almost no sand.
