About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6881
Slope 152
Rating 73.6
Type Resort
Twenty seven championship holes await travelers visiting south Florida's scenic beaches. Grand Palms Golf & Country Club in Pembroke Pines also offers three nines: Royal, Sabal and Grand. All three are famous for having some of the best greens in the area, and the golf courses are played in three separate combos. The Grand/Royal 18, designed by Ward Northrup, comes in at 6,881, most of which is blanketed with palm trees and tropical foliage. The longest and most challenging of the Grand Palms' golf courses, Grand/Royal features some especially memorable water holes. A tight layout with raised greens (perfect for testing your shot-making talents), beware the Grand's bunkers, strategically placed along the greensides.

GPS

System was stuck recently by lightning so GPS showed the hole layout but no distances. Made it very difficult to play especially since there was a good wind. No one said anything until we were out on the course and finally saw someone to ask on the turn.

Communication breakdown

I selected a Hot Deal online to play the course. When I arrived the pro shop attendant tried to discourage me from playing: “we have a high school tournament today and they are walking...they are using two of our three nine hole courses and you will be playing slow...will take you all day. “ I said I would play the remaining nine hole course twice.

When we got to the start he said, “the course your plating is under repair...there are no tee boxes...you’ll have to tee off next to the tee boxes.”

I had prepaid the round of golf and was playing with an invited guest who drove down from another county just to play Grand Palms. Needless to say, the play was a disaster. And then, after playing two holes of the second nine, thunder and lightning struck. All.players stopped. I asked the pro shop attendant if we could get a rain check: “No, there was no rain; wait for the rain and maybe we’ll issue a rain check.”...if I had known that the course would be under such conditions I would not have purchased the round.

Good Course

I have not played Grand Palms in a long time and it appears as if there has been an actual upgrade to the course and staff. Well done. Keep up the great service.

Not So Grand....

Located next to a run-down hotel and an overpriced restaurant, this crazy-quilt, 27-hole labyrinth snakes it way through and around upscale homes, lakes, and canals. Some courses overlap each other. The fairways, tees, and greens were in generally good shape, but the mix of different types on grass in the rough provided a strong challenge around the greens. Poorly maintained bunkers were strategically placed along the fairways and around greens. I started out a pleasant, 2 1/2 hour solo round on the tight, water-laden Grand, which required sharp shot management on several holes. The Royal was less demanding, but featured a quirky, dog leg Par 5 that made a 90-degree turn around a row of houses. Oddball layouts offered disjointed golf experience from course to course. Pro shop staffer was polite, but cart attendants were less attentive. As usual in the summer, there was no beverage cart and only few water stations on the course. And unless you are into apathetic female bartenders and $6 Heinekens, skip the restaurant. Not a deal for $25.

Wet course, but fun.

The course was cart path only because of all the recent rain. It also has a lot of water hazards that are well placed to gobble up golf balls so bring your A game.

average value, poor outdoor staff

Off and on rain at a course we have played several times. Restaurant has changed with new menu and inside staff is very good. Food was good. Outdoor staff, the last several times, acts if you are not there. No direction, communication or assistance with clubs after the round. Not even a thank you for playing or have a nice day.

People Matter

A staff member (Susan) was courteous and professional. After checking me in and finding out it was my first time playing there. She took the time to explain all i needed to know. Moreover, she delivered a new cart to me out on the course when the GPS stopped working on my cart. I played there again the next day and she was not working. I mention this as the gentleman in the pro shop this day was not helpful. He was condescending when I had a concern and asked for help.
