The golf course at the Palmbrook Country Club has a reputation for being immaculately well kept. The course's greens and fairways are consistently kept in excellent condition making the course enjoyable to play. In addition to the spotless maintenance, the course at the Palmbrook Country Club has a challenging design that incorporates water hazards in the form of a meandering brook and six lakes on the back nine. The challenging greens are fast and hard to read. There are also several bunkers that can affect play. Four sets of teeboxes provide different options.

Great as always

Course is in excellent condition for the summer, particularly the greens and bunkers. A few small random bare patches in the fairways but nothing worth complaining about, it’s 110 degrees out. Palmbrook is always a great value. Range balls included. Solo rider carts allowed due to COVID. Friendly and helpful staff. You could pay more money and not get a course in nice of condition as Palmbrook elsewhere in the NW valley.

SLOW!!

I like this course, its fun to play.
BUT, it needs some TLC,
Also, there wasnt a ranger to be found, there was a foursome in front of us that was hitting 2-3 balls each off the tee. And another of obviously new player's hitting off the red tees.
A ranger could have kept play moving.

Tee off yardages...

This course is in typical summer condition, spotty tees and fairways, decent greens and sand traps. My main gripe with this course: 5 tee boxes with the intermediate distance boxes placed at around 5650 yds. ( blue) and 6300yds. (silver). I am nota big bomber of the ball so if I play silver, I put one or two pars on my card. If I play from the blue tees I get more pars but it is less challenging. Ideally I enjoy playing 5900-6000 yds at this stage in my life. I believe all golf courses would do well to set up at least one set of tee boxes at this distance....

Always a fun round

Considering the time of year, the fairways and greens were in great shape. Some brown spots in the fairway but that’s to be expected. Greens were mostly in good shape, a few had some brown areas but overall they were smooth. Tee boxes could use some work, most were in bad shape, If you don’t tee the ball up good luck finding grass to hit off of. Good price for this time of year. If you stay between the trees you’ll have a fun round.

Disappointing course condition

Really do like the course but they let it get away from them this summer. Tee boxes like this require old metal spikes to hold your footing. Never seen unlevel, ungrassed cow patches this bad. Bunkers had noticeable shelves in them from lack of sand. Unplayable at best; some were even marked as such. Fairways were being verticut and several greens had maintenance vehicles on them during play.
Course is very nice most of the time but I wouldn't play here until they get back to better conditions.
