Palm Beach Golf Course is an enjoyable par-3 course that offers a round that is as good as a championship course. It is one of the top-rated par-3 courses in the country. The innovative Paspalum turf that is used throughout the course is both drought and saltwater-tolerant, guaranteeing lush green conditions no matter what. The course has a rolling terrain, offering curves and elevations that provide scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Almost every hole on the golf course enjoys beautiful scenery but being sandwiched between the ocean and the Intracoastal, there are treacherous breezes that can affect your game. The layout starts on the beach and then moves along the Intracoastal. The sandy dunes on the beach provide the course with some interesting challenges. It is an excellent place to hone your short game skills.

Cool layout but terrible greens

The course is a cool layout with many holes on the ocean and intracoastal. However, the greens were in terrible condition, they had more sand than grass.

Very friendly!

I chose this course because of it the positive reviews. When I arrived the woman in the club house was very friendly and encouraged me to take my time browsing the merchandise. I was informed the greens had just been aerated before I set out and was given a verbal on the layout of the course. I was even encouraged to take pictures! Course was easy to play and in great shape. It’s July so the course wasn’t crowded but I’m sure I’d get the same service peak season!

Not much direction from staff

This was my first time playing the course. The conditions we're great and it was really cool playing right next to the ocean.

The staff could be more mindful of first time visitors to the course. Simple things like showing a playing some of the amenities, where to get range balls, etc, would have been nice. I was pointed in a general direction and wasted time trying to locate the range ball machine.

Par 3

The course for a public course was in excellent condition.
The greens were a little slow about 8 but smooth.
The pace of play was fine with no real delays.
I would recommend the course to my friends that play par 3s.

Great Par 3 Course

Have played this course on our visits to Plam Beacg the past two years. Course condition is immaculate. The Paspalum greens are like carpet , but putt slower than Bermuda ones. Fairways/approaches are as good as we've ever played, and rough is lush. Fun also watching the iguanas run around the course.

Beautiful course, fast round.

course was pristine. Went right out at 8:30 am on a Sunday and was off course by 11:00!
Would have preferred some longer holes. Very small par 3. Even from the Black.
Staff is friendly. Great for a quick round on a pretty course.
