Rating 74.2

The One&Only Palmilla Golf Club boasts a 27-hole layout that is divided into three scenic nines: Mountain, Ocean, and Arroyo. Named after the defining features of their landscape, the nines are played in different 18-hole combinations. Jack Nicklaus designed all 27 holes, giving each a unique character but the same level of challenge. The Mountain/Ocean combination starts out with dramatic elevations. Expect some uneven lies and the occasional blind shot. The front nine offers a diverse mix of holes of varying lengths that all feature plenty of water and sand. The fifth hole is a memorable par 4 that plays over not one but two deep canyons to a green fronted by a deep bunker. On the back nine, the Ocean Course, golfers can enjoy a different view of the Sea of Cortez on every

A little tired

Could use an upgrade of golf carts, as there is no electronic gps system to provide yardages. Given the cost per round, this should be part of the package

Arroyo/Mountain

First time playing this course. As a single I got a great rate on Golf Now. Would definitely recommend and definitely play this course again. Would have liked to play the Ocean nine.
