I played Grand Palms 10/19/2017. The condition of the Corse was good considering all the rain we have had for a month . Two of the three 9 hole courses were open. Hurricane Irma’s remains were still visible on one 9 hole course. It was wet on a few holes which made it more difficult to play. There were several holes with cart path only. I paid $15.00 to play there, so I can not be to picky. It was a good game for the money.

I played here before, last year. The staff was friendly. Ranger was a very nice lady in the field. It was Eclipse day, Monday, August 21. A nice day to play golf, good temperature. Carts with GPS. The golf course was on very good shape, greens were mid-speed, and well maintained. Bunquers need more sand and less water, they were difficult.

Fairways well cut and the ball was allways in good position.

The drink cart was available every 3 or 4 holes.

Nothing else was needed to have an excellent opportunity to play in a good place like Grand Palms (Grand and Royal).

Lunch at the Club house was delicious and worth the money.

I played the Grand and Royal. The greens are in a very good condition, but the fairways and the rough, which should be Bermuda grass, are well contaminated with St Augustine grass and some other weeds and it's extremely difficult get off those spots. The putting green facility is pretty small, chipping/pitching facilities and substandard and you are hitting ball to a pond in the range.

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 .
