I played the royal sabal and I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to golf courses and this one is very good my only complaint is how close the houses are it really makes you feel closed in on alot of holes and kind makes you be alot more conservative off the tee which sucks. Overall it's a good course in my opinion.

Overall, I enjoyed my round at Grand Palms Resort. One can tell the course is older, but it was in pretty good shape. Greens were well manicured. Some fairways had some weeds, but not too bad. I can't say any staff were overtly friendly, but they were polite. The ranger was courteous. I played by myself by choice so maybe I didn't draw any extra attention. A solid 4 star.

My wife and I played the Grand / Royal layout.

Personnel were all friendly,and did their best to make it a fun day. Agronomy (grass) was excellent , greens were dead smooth and medium quick. Plenty of water about , but if you kept it in the short grass you had options. Greens are elevated because it's Florida but not enough to make you feel like you're hitting to a volcano :-) A keeper for sure .

Tough layout with water and hazards prevelant off the tee. Fun battle on a windy day. Course quality wasn't the best. Dead spots and weeds on greens, many dead spots on fairways, or undisigned overgrowth around fairways. If you can get it under 20 bucks, it might be worth it.

Course is older, greens are fine but fairways not getting enough maintenance. Considerable water and traps abound especially on the Royal Course. Three 9 holes courses at the golf club.

Me and my 11 year old wanted to play 9 holes while in South Beach and booked this course on a whim. We showed up with no shoes, gloves or clubs but the staff was able to scrounge up a junior set for my son and some decent blades for me. The fairly open layout with mostly lateral water was no problem and we had a very fun afternoon. Was a little further out from South Beach than I expected but glad we went.

This course hasn't been updated in over 10 yrs, its overpriced, for a so called resort. GPS have water marks on the screens so you really can't see anything, good thing I have a back up.
