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.

Played the royal and Sabel nines. Pace of play was ok. Greens were in good shape but as far as fairways and other parts of the course ? Left a lot to be desired in my opinion. Wasn't crazy about the layout either. Had some really hokie holes and if you've never played there then you have no idea where to play your shot.

I played the Sabal Course on a perfect day for golf. The course was moderately challenging. Some water to cross, some narrow and wide fairways and a little course management encouraged. I would play this course again.

Grand Palms in Pembroke Pines has 3 nines. We played the Grand and the Sabal nines. I probably enjoyed it even more since I shot my best round in over 4 months (77/6 over par). Both nines are fun to play, as long as you are driving the ball fairly straight. Even an occasional off center shot, if not too extreme, won't hurt too bad. The greens were in good shape, and held incoming balls, with the exception of lots of ball marks.

A suggestion would to have the starters request that players remember to fix their ball marks (and one other if they see one). There were several greens where we fixed five other fresh ball marks.

Recently played at this course while visiting a friend in Pembroke Pines. At the end of our round the cart staff rushed us to turn the cart in. I accidentally left my cell phone in the cart. Went back to retrieve it but it was gone within 10 minutes. Little help from the pro who didn't seem to want to admit that it was stolen. Called him a couple of times but never received a call back. Nice course but will never play there again. If you play there REWARE OF THE DISHONEST CART STAFF. Don't trust them with anything of value.

I played the Sabal-Royal at Grand Palms.

Tee off is in very good shape(reseeded) .

Greens in perfect shape : good roll not so fast.

Fairways better than average in this region.

Sabal have lot of water, very challenging ...so don't force with your driver!

Good experience , I will return!

Great course, played on a fairly busy Friday afternoon and breezed through the front nine. On the back nine there were a couple of guys who seemed to have never played the game before. They had one set of rental clubs, chopped their way around the course, took 15-20 mins on each hole and took our ball twice! We confronted them and the first time they said it was a Kleenex they picked up, (eww) the second was they didn't realize the ball behind them was ours!? It was brutal! We called for a marshall several times but no one ever came. One time someone drove by as fast as they could with a walkie talkie glued to his ear and never made eye contact with us as we tried to wave him down. We just quit and drove in on seventeen along with three other groups. We complained at the pro shop and all we received was a weak apology and confirmation that they had no marshall working that day. We were really, really disappointed at the staff and doubt we'll be back.
