I was pretty amazed on how well this course was maintained especially this late in the year. The value was great on GolfNow. The fairways were neatly cut and tight. Greens were immaculate, rolled true and no bumps or jumping offline. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends and family when they visit.

Paid way too much money for a course that was in such bad shape. The regular 18 hole course at sea palms is good but their nine hole course is not. Will not play again.

I've played here a few times and in different conditions. The course was in the best shape yet. You need to put your ball in the correct place on some holes. There is water in play on a few. The greens were just the right speed for me. I don't like them too fast. I love the par 3's and there are 5 of them. #14 gives me fits every time I play it! Didn't partake of the grill, but it did look inviting with a fire going and a nice bar area. Will definitely play here again.

Very nice for just a few weeks removed from hurricane Irma. As first time at course, I felt there needs to be more signage as the score card has no layout and there isn't any thing on the tee box. Also there are no yardage markers except for the sprinklers, but those are hard to find.

Did have lots of water and ice. Didn't use clubhouse.

The course was in really great shape. The greens were nice and smooth and the fairways were nicely manicured. It's a good layout which will, at times, force you to work the ball left and right or use less club so you don't wind up in trouble.

They also have plenty of water coolers along the course for the hot summer days.

Both times I've played, I've just about been the only one in the course. The downside to this is the drink cart is only out when there are more groups on the course, which is during the mornings it seems.

I'll definitely come back.

We played at 8:30, hoping to get around early, and 5 hours later finished. We had 2 groups on every tee on the back 9 and no ranger. Frankly it spoiled what could have been a fun round. The course was in great shape and the fairways, tees, and greens were spectacular. We would like to play again, but dragging around like we did really left a bad feeling. Welcome to the world of "resort golf".
