Wonderful day of golf

First nine was slow but picked up during second nine. Course conditions were excellent. I had fun and other players were congenial and I enjoyed their company.

Nailed by sprinkler system in fairway on hole #9

Hole #9 was 280 yards to the green from the tee which has a big wrap-around lake about 15 yards wide in front of it. I hit my tee shot about 20 yards in front of the lake in the fairway. Mid swing on my second shot, the sprinkler system, on that particular fairway, kicks on. I was standing about 3 feet in front of one of the sprinkler heads, which came on like a fire hose … huge volume of water being shoved out. It nails me right in the back and completely soaks me head-to-toe. Since we were in front of the Pro Shop, after finishing the hole, I stormed in there dripping wet and asked them what they were doing watering the fairways in the middle of the day, told them that I wanted my greens fees refunded, and asked them for a dry shirt to put on. They were accomodating, but ...

Las Palmas. Play the South 9

My first time
Staff friendly and helpful
Course was empty on front 9. South course is the best of the 3 courses
North is less perfect

Recommend this course for the price. I did a 9:15 tee with cart for $83. No one on the front 9. Great pace

The north 9 is ok. I didn't play west.

Over priced

Staff were excellent, but not prepared. The course has the older feeling and it is not worth the money I paid for 18. $40.00 would be a fair price. Driving range is by far the worst I have ever used. There is no beverage cart so load up on gatorade before you show up. No marshall to discourage slow play. Honestly, use the $89.00 to play a better ciurse.

First Time Playing

Played here for the first time, and got a 1:15 tee time. When we got to the course, the pro shop was closing, so we were sent to the starter’s shack to get set up with our cart and tee time. No starter was at the starting area which is at the intersection for the three courses. It was very chaotic for check in and start up for the groups checking in.. When we finally found someone, he was very friendly and apologetic.
After we got going, the course was in fair shape for this time of year and was as expected. Pace of play was a little slow. Might have given this a little better review except for all of the trouble getting started on our round.

Nice course. Poor pace control

The course was in very good condition and a good value for the money would play the course again.

But, the course has three nines that all start from about the same place. We started on the south nine and had good pace of play for our foresome. When we got to our 10th hole, which was the first hole for the north nine, there was a new twosome waiting in the tee and a new threesome halfway down the fairway. The threesome was ridiculously slow, and took a good 20 minutes to play the hole. After the second hole of this nine the twosome quit and we were right behind the slow threesome., waiting a long time for every shot.

The course should not put our groups ahead of a stream of groups playing 18. The slow threesome should have drawn martial attention. An enjoyable first nine turned into an agonizing second nine.

1st time playing

Tight course. Very narrow in some places. People’s property is in danger of getting hit on a lot of holes. We were partnered up with another couple and that helped where to hit to because its not all that clear from the tee. Had a really good day and would consider playing there again

it was okay

Pace of play was quite slow, no beverage cart. One of the nines on this site was being being over-seeded, so we had a busy day. I've played here before and it was fine, but right now, I can't recommend it except in a pinch
