The layout is championship class, however the surroundings , paths and tees , are a little tired to say the least. The greens on the back 9 are far superior to the front nine, not sure if they have been relaid but they were excellent and fast and true. No starter and we weren't aware, despite going to the pro shop, until another player playing Cupp course told us; we weren't sure if we had been paired up or not. We were a two ball and we flew round in around 3 hours 20. My overall impression was this could or just has been a great course. Loved the narrow landing areas from the drive and the water added an interesting element. Overall a very enjoyable round of golf and would play here again

Normally course goes for 60 a round and we got it for 20. Can't beat that on the island. Two courses based out of Palmetto Hall can't go wrong with either. Greens are very tough along with rough around the greens so hit on with your irons to score low. Loved the course wish they had food around the turn, clubhouse is literally a desk and bathroom with some apparel. All in all can't beat it for 20 bucks.

Bring you long balls as you will need it from the blues. Excellent course and layout. Very challenging for me, a 9 handicap. I am not a long ball hitter which put pressure on my short game. I would go back in a heartbeat.

i hand not played this course in several years and i was extremely pleased. a mix of straight forward holes, with some that require fore thought, i was told that the greens had been redone, and they rolled fast and smooth. first hole is #1handicap 18th hole is #2. tough way to start and finish.

First time playing on either of the two Palmetto Hall courses. This in "winter" golf but the course was in excellent condition. I had played two other courses in the days before and this was much better. The greens were erythromycin fast, but smooth and true. These greens have lots of undulations thus if you were above the hole, forget it!. Lots of character, many different holes styles and lots of green side bunkers and modules. Great challenge

Noon tee time found the course very breezy. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Greens were fast. The staff was very helpful and friendly at check-in and bag drop. The pace of play was good even though the wind caused some issues with drives and approach shots. Will play again through hot deal. Good value for price. Definitely would recommend to others. Didn't check out 19th hole today.
