This par 54 course was fun to play. Good way to work on the short game. Fairways and greens both in excellent condition. We will definitely play there again.

Great short course

Course is in great shape. Great course to practice your short game. Greens are in great shape and run true. Stay below the hole as greens are fast. Plenty of challenges for all skill levels.

Bad customer service

Me my son and my nephew want to play on Christmas Eve morning when I first walked in the gentleman at the front who’s been very rude he kept Eyeing all the way through the course at Hole 10 # he comes outside and says we can’t put her back on the green we are first time golfers we wanted to have a good time They kept hovering over us he approached us once again and that’s when we decided to leave I will never go back again I felt very uncomfortable he told me if we’re time golfers to try a different golf course I paid good money to play there it does not matter if we’re first time golfers or we’re regulars we should all be treated the same will never go back!!! So if your a first time Golfer try somewhere else !!! This isn’t the place !!! Their a disgrace for the game of golf there !!!

Satisfied

Always a great day at Palm Royale. Beautifully maintained. Lovely views. Very playable for novices and pros alike. Fred Couples holds the course record, I believe.

Short Par 3

I like the course in general. The only problem was that the course is short. There are a few par-3s over 125 and many less than 110 yards. Mainly suitable for wedge practice.
