The Palms Golf Course is a tract that locals and visitors alike just love to play. Originally designed by William Mitchell in 1962, the Palms was completely renovated by Karl Litton and Lorie Viola in 1996.

The accommodating fairways make it easier to hit your tee shots in play. Once on the 'dance floor', the Bermuda greens roll true and quick.

The Palms Course has a number of picturesque water hazards. As its name would indicate, the Palms features lovely native Palm trees throughout the course.

It is most definitely a true Florida golf course and one, which everybody should put on their 'must play' list .

Embarrassing

The price for this course is awful , considering it is in terrible shape. Should be closed until they can get it in a respectable condition. Greens were horrendous, fairways were not so good and the rough is nothing but weeds. Don’t waste your time or money.

Greens are in bad shape.

Greens are in bad shape. A lot of bald spots. Recently aerated and sanded. Certain fairways are in bad shape too. Some trees are very over grown with branches all the way down to ground. No beverage cart on a Saturday.

Pretty good

Greens had some brown spots, but overall the course is in very good shape. Challenging lay out, and very long.

Not bad for 30 bucks, some of the greens had some real bad spots on them and some fairways needed some tending..but we were the only ones on the course so it wasn't that bad..

The greens were pretty bad shape, lots of dead patches.. The fairways weren't the best but ok, some sand traps were good and some sucked...This time of year it's a good 30 dollar course.

Was a good course

This was a good course, 20 years ago. This course has not been maintained well. It appears they may be trying to improve, but unsuccessfully. The staff was rude and inconsiderate, they turned the sprinklers on while we were on the hole. Soaking us and our carts and clubs. When we asked the employee why, he stated we parked in front of the sprinklers and it was our fault.

It was okay

The greens had bad spots on them which made it difficult for a decent put. The starter was a young man with not very good manners. Everyone else there was pretty friendly. The cart paths are broken with tons of potholes.

Great value course

Tee boxes were below average, fairways were average, greens were great when they weren’t spotty, but half of the greens were spotty (mini sand areas in the greens, lack of grass spots with only dirt.

No cart lady, but a great bar with food at the turn. A maintenance workers turned on the sprinklers at hole 5+6 and completely drenched the greens at 9:30 just as we were arriving to the holes and made the greens slower than a carpet and made the ground mushy. As the greens dried up through the day they got way faster so it started to become difficult to gauge.

Shop staff and outside staff were amazing. Made me feel like I was at a much more expensive place. They seemed to really like being at their job

For $45 at a 8:30 start I would say this is a great value course for the area, but don’t expect grade A conditions (also I was told they would be aerating the greens after Memorial Day weekend)

Vacation

The course was in average condition. The layout makes it easy for beginners and intermediary players alike. The iguanas are everywhere and fun to watch. No need for a stupid mask as they understand science. The drink and food prices are outstanding, will definitely be back.
