This course is a nice course to play.

Course is good for all levels of golfers. However, the course is in need of a makeover. the tee boxes and greens are in real need of a makeover, especially the greens. The fairways are also in need of "sprucing up."

Another pleasant round

This course, although offering a decent challenge, is very forgiving. In general the fairways are wide and the water that is in play does not ''attract'' your ball. We now include this course in our favorite list. A special mention to the staff. Everyone was nice and added to the fun of the day

Best course I've played

From the time my friends and I arrived the staff was friendly, helpful and engaging. The course was very well kept and we had a blast. A very Fun and well paced play time. We had food at the tiki bar afterwards and the food was great too. We will definitely be coming back to Palm Beach national again and I highly recommend the course to anyone who is looking for a great round of golf with friends. Thanks Mike D. for an amazing day!!

Fun layout, average conditions, and neat atmosphere

The course conditions were average for a public course - neither good nor bad. The tee boxes were fine, the fairways were fine, and the greens were fine. The driving range / clubhouse vibes were different, in a good way. They offer complimentary shots at the register and on the course. We accepted these as many times as they were offered. Shout out to Gary from Wellington, the single that we were paired with, because he was awesome.

Nice day of golf

Fairways and greens in nice shape. Tee boxes could use someTLC. All of our group enjoyed the layout. We are four 70 somethings who like a little challenge, but not beyond our abilities. The “senior” tees here filled the bill nicely. Pro shop staff and starter were friendly and helpful. All in all a good day on they course. We all agreed we would return here.

Waste of money

Awful upkeep. Tee boxes with no grass... just sand. Weeds on bumpy greens. 5 hour round.

We are very sorry you had a bad experience at the course. This time of year we receive a lot of traffic and that tends to slow our pace and affect conditions. We hope you come back for another try and maybe even a complimentary rum shot.

Golfnow system did not work

I made a reservation on golfnow for 2 people at 1:18. I received an email confirming the reservation. I received another email the day of the reservation. When I arrived at Palm Beach National they had no reservation for me and had given my tee time to a 4some who called in. Luckily the people at the counter were very nice and they squeezed us into a 5 some. The course was very crowded so we were going to have a long day anyway. This seemed to be a golfnow computer problem. The course said this does happen some times.

From now on I will call the course to check even if I get an email from Golfnow.

Friendly staff!

We had forgotten we made an early tee time..called the course and they felt they could fit us in a little later. We showed up for the new time, but all backed up. Put us out mid way thru the back 9, and fit us in (as the starter MIM promised )on the 1st. Everyone was very pleasant! Decent conditions, nice layout.

Poorly Managed

We had a 1:02 pm tee time. When we arrived at the course we were told that they were running 30 minutes behind, so already we are not off to a good start. The kicker was when they sent the group off in front of us with 5 players. Who does that. I mean your already running 30 minutes behind. Maybe in the staff meeting someone might want to bring this up as a reason. Well as you might have thought it proceeded to take us 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes. We decided to call it a day after 9 even though we paid for 18. The course condition was mixed. Fairways were ok, greens were a mess with ball marks left unrepaired. Overall not a good experience. I would suggest new management for this course as it has potential.

Fun place to play. Enjoyable round of golf.

Played this course taking advantage of a Hot Deal thru GolfNow. Liked the fun atmosphere around the clubhouse with music playing at the putting green and driving range. Staff is friendly. Starter and course rangers did their jobs well, with late in the round free rum shots offered. Like I said, a fun place to play. As far as the course goes, the layout is good, fairways and tees rate a good, the greens I have to say were only fair/good on this day. Very puttable, but bumpy and grainy in places. That said, I would play this course again. A very enjoyable day was hard.
