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 .

Watch out for fire ants. They are everywhere.

Not a bad track for the money but the fire ants are on every hole and they can really ruin your round.

Solid spot

Fairways were mostly in good shape, same with greens. In fact some improvement in the course shape since the last outing earlier this year. I also applaud the greenskeeper for using some temporary tee boxes while the real ones are under repair. I wish more courses did this.

Rider fee?

This course was fine for getting out and hitting some balls but has multiple greens in poor condition. Can’t say it’s worth the price considering the prices and quality of nearby municipal courses.

Additionally, the charge a $25 “rider fee” for non golfers riding in the cart. I regularly have a family member or my girlfriend ride/walk with me on the course and have never been charged for them to accompany. It’s possible that this is common and that I’ve been lucky to avoid it but I’d pre hesitant to pay $25 to play this golf course again considering the poor conditions, let alone just walk it.

Condemn this golf course

I've been playing at Palm Aire courses for the past 40 years and although I rarely play the Palms course, I decided to try it again. How management can let anyone pay to play on this course is beyond me. There is so little grass on the course it is almost impossible to find a lie to hit off of. the tees are not only covered in weeds but there are many tee boxes where you v=can not hit off a flat lie! the twelfth tee is actually curved like a ski slope!! Every path cart is battered and torn up so you will probably need a chiropractor after the round. this course needs to be torn down if management does nothing to repair it. don't waste your money!!!

Not Good

Arrived an hour early for by 7:48. Rudely told range is closed , putted, went to car….people on range hitting balls when I get back. No apology just took my $8 ..went to range, told starter twice, I’m 7:48, he wrote it down…checked me off…watch 3 3somes tee off….he forgot me and then asked me to join group in fairway….now in to the course….greens rolled pretty well but had sand spots in all….fairways were so tight, almost impossible to hit a good chips, most tee boxes were absolutely terrible. The absolute worst part we’re the cart paths, just horrible with big pot holes everywhere… too many good options close, sadly this was not one of them.

9 holes need lower rate.

They need a rate for 9 holes of play. Charged for full 18 holes. Makes it too expensive. Seniors getting older 18 is too much to play. Would even like a 13 hole rate.
