Those guys were disrespectful and rude. Without tip, they were in the hurry that we leave the cart and let us go with our bag to the parking without any help.

Greens are in need of repair. A lot of dead spots from ball marks, etc.

Every bunker was not in or near playable condition.

Pace of play was very slow. I was a single, but no room to leap frog. Many 4-somes of primarily seniors/hi handicap players. The groups I followed weren't really bad golfers, they just needed 3 and 4 shots to reach the green, which is slow when each golfer is taking 2-4 rehearsal swings prior to each shot..... as if it mattered ;-)

At the turn I was at 2 hours 35 minutes. On the 10th it was a foursome on the green, another on the fairway, and a foursome on the T-box. I went back to #1 to reload there but similar pressure there. I left as I didn't have time for 5+ hour round.

And finally, no menu service for a hamburger or salad. Only pre-made sandwich/hot dog.

Overall, if you're a local getting the $20 rate including cart, and have time to wait it out, then OK. If like me, here with some obligations and 5 hour limit, it might not be the best choice.

Finally, the staff is nice, friendly tho.

I am about a 20 handicap player. The course is like a resort course. You almost can't be too far off to get back to play for the green. This course is played a lot by tourist. All friendly and all in good spirits. I tend to bargain shop my courses for any given day and this course us usually the best option and price. I take my higher handicap visitors here, but there is a tougher and busier course at the same resort.

Conditions are about average with some tee boxes that you will have to work around. There are some trouble spots with water. Not an extrem long course but it challenges. Some of the homes and condos are closer than I like. I still play here frequently.

I enjoy golf like I enjoy my wine. I like to take my time & enjoy every shot/sip. I have not felt this rushed in awhile. When we arrived we were immediately paired with two gentlemen that had been staying at the resort. We could tell they were in the mood to hurry. The Marshall at the starting gate spoke briefly about pace of play & explained how important it was to the club. From that moment on we felt rushed. We played 18 in 3:40.

The Palm Aire Palms course is one of the Can-Am group of courses in the Ft Lauderdale area, It is one of the most reasonably affordable rounds of golf in peak season that is still a good playable track. The facilities are moderate and dated, but the course is always in decent and playable condition. The greens were faster and better than expected, and a 4 hour 15 minute pace of play for a perfect weather Saturday morning was surprisingly good. The course is very playable. Wjile lined with condos, they are generally set back and do not (or should not!) come into play.. It has a drainage sytem designed to create streams that work across several fairways. Distances to the streams are not indicated anywhere, and I couldnt find anything to ping a rangefinder off of, which forced uninformed decisions from the tee. The drainage system also creates linear water along the side of many fairways and buffer between condos and golf course. All in all a good practice course to work on the swing in the middle of the season that won't break the bank. Finally the course is across the street from the Isles Casino that has a very good NY deli and a trotters race track.

I am a 2 handicap and expected a practice round. This course is great for the old people on a fixed income, but for any good golfer it is almost like going to the driving range. The layout is good and the greens are actually ok. I played it from the tips and that is where the good golfers should. Cheap course and kinda rough shape but it is what it is. The people who play it were very nice. The staff not so much. In the end you get what you pay for...

We golfed a round at twilight rates so price was good, all the staff was great except for the starter, he seemed like he didn't want to be there and was very short with us (cranky) he wasn't going to let us play more than nine holes even after paying for 18, told us the carts have to be in by 6:20 so there's was no time and it was only 5:50 at the turn!! so we played a few more holes then when we returned our cart at 6:20 there were about 20 carts still on the course and still playing. I would play here again but try to avoid the starter as much as possible.
