Very pedestrian

Not much imagination, most shots are 90-100 yards, there isn’t much incentive to use longer clubs. Beautiful course, seems to be taken care of.

Great part three course!

Great part three course that you can play in two hours or less. I read the reviews before I booked and it was very much what I read. Beautifully groomed course; it really worked out well for me because I was struggling with any shots that required me to cross over water and for about 60% of the holes have water in play, it gave me a great chance to build up my confidence and use my irons and work on the short game.

Sharpen your short game

1. You walk!
2. Don't use a tee and get some real practice.
3. Play in about 2 hours!
4. Nice little track.

Short Game Practice

Course was in great shape. My only critique is that not everyone fixes their ball marks on the greens. With the holes averaging around 100yds there are a lot of ball marks.
It’s a minor gripe considering how well the course is maintained

Fun day of golf

Went Palm Royal with some friends for a fun day and change of pace from “long” hard courses.

We had fun, the course was in excellent condition and just challenging enough. Great way to improve your iron play.
