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.

Deceived and Punched

We where told that the greens were punched 3 weeks ago and they had recovered well. They lied. Not worth what I paid. Wouldn’t go back for awhile

NO RAIN CHECKS

You can tell when a course has financial problems. Everything is falling apart and they do not provide Rain Checks. Sad that even though the rain started on the second hole they would not provide rain checks. It rained for hours. Very cold attitude with no amenities. The staff seemed to have bad attitudes.

Not worth the money

Greens are spiked and sandy but they dont tell you that when you book a tee time. No starter. Unfriendly staff, especially the club house guy. Not food at the bar (just lunch boxes). No beer cart. The ice/water machine is broken. I have played there for years but this was my first time after the pandemic. Not coming back anytime soon.

Nice Course, but Overpriced

On May 29th, 2021, I played this course with two clients and it was $70 for each player. This is outrageous, especially considered what's offered. Way overpriced and will be seeking other courses at a more reasonable cost during summer season.

Great time

I had an amazing day playing at Grand Palms, the course is a bit challenging but that made it fun. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. BUT today was 90 degrees and you can’t bring your own cooler, there is no beer girl on the course. If you wanted a beer you had to wait to get to the Clubhouse. They give you the beer on ice in a plastic bag, my shoes and head covers got app wet. If I had my own cooler this wouldn’t happen. But I still enjoy it and would return for sure.

too expensive for what you get

New carts. There is NO GPS in carts. The sable greens were still recovering from recent airation.
Thus, slow and bumpy. Royal is in good shape. Great staff. But they need to reduce greens fees. Way to high, for summer golf ($55) They do have a $25 walking fee. Unlimited walking play on one of their 3 nine hole courses. No walking carts byo.
NO on course refreshments.

Challenging

I really like grand palms, 3, 9 hole courses, they choose two for you ...as a 18 handicap golfer grand palms is a great place to be challenged .not too long off the silver tees where a hacker can still get to the greens( which are fast and tricky) ...several holes require lay ups so you much manage the course well
