Famous for having some of the best greens in south Florida, Pembroke Pines' Grand Palms Golf & Country Club offers three nine-hole courses: Royal, Sabal and Grand. The three golf courses are played in three separate combos, with the Royal/Sabal coming in at a robust 6,847 yards from the gold tees. The golf course traverses across a landscape of tropical foliage and thick palms, providing both a challenge and a reminder of what south Florida golf has to offer. The Royal/Sabal shines with player-friendly fairways and generous greens.

Not worth the money, still had fun.

The course was okay, should've been worth around $30 as opposed to the $55 cost. I played the Grand course and it wasn't in good condition. The staff was courteous and friendly, the fairways were in okay condition but on a couple of holes, the fairway and the rough had no real separation. If this course was $30 I would've rated it 4/5 stars.

Perfect Day

I found a Hot Deal and book it for Wednesday morning at 0830. The pace of play was outstanding- we finished in under 4 hours and the only time we saw any other group was on the first hole.
Excellent day for golf !!!

Pretty good

Nice course, up keep is ok. Could use some work on the greens and traps which are low on sand and a mess. No water or bev cart to be found. Bar available when you start and at the turn only. Good for the $$ I guess.

Great shape. A few ammenaties would make it FANTASTIC

Played this morning at 8:30 am. The fairways were in great shape. The ruff was not overwhelming but due to recent and usual Florida rains were soggy and more difficult. The greens were very good. Fairly quick speed with some break to them. Adequately sized and soft enough to hold we’ll hit shots fairly.. the group in front of us was a little slow. It would have been nice to have a ranger on course. Also with the heat and humidity there should be a cart girl. The bar at the starter/pro shop station was open and wee were advised of that. There is a locker room but shower was not working or otherwise unavailable (possibly due to Covid-19). All and all a good round. I would play there again.

Beautiful layout

It is a very challenging course with a lot of water, maintenance is regular, especially in the social areas, there is no kitchen so food options are limited

Incredible turn around

Just a couple months ago GP was almost unplayable. They have really turned the course around and rally worked hard to improve all the bad areas. Tee boxes are very good and greens are as good as they can be. Being able to walk it is a great option . Keep it up!!!

ABSOLUTE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE

I reserved a tee time for two, called and specifically confirmed that the premier card rate was valid with a young lady at pro shop when I reserved. We get to the course and Moe at the pro shop said they would not honor the premier rate. I explained that i specifically confirmed with the pro shop before reserving, and his excuse was that the young lady was "new". Unbelievable! Moe made zero attempt to accommodate and has no clue about what it means to try to find a solution to a situation that should not have happened. Buywr beware. Never coming here again, and read all the reviews before you waste your money and time here.
