Wet rairways

played here several times, but been a while since playing here. Like the course, but conditions were not perfect, this time. As an older course not the best drainage. Fairways were wet in many places, and 2 holes were closed, so had to make up 2 holes, playing 2 twice. greens were in good shape and rolling mostly true. Certainly I will play here again, but have learned, not to plan a round, after some rains, plays better on dry conditions...

Great playing

PBN is a fun laid back course that is both forgiving but tests you as a golfer. Would recommend for any age range and experience level. Conditions exceed expectations and staff is very friendly.

New to the course

Course was in good shape, considering the amount of rain we had in the past weeks. Thankfully not CPO. The fairways are very wide in the landing areas. Most challenging part of the course were the springboard greens and the inconsiderate balls marks left on the greens. We probably, as a foursome, repaired 100 ball marks. Overall, a good test of my skills, which are medium.

Only bad thing? Loud music from the closed restaurant bar area that is heard on the driving range, entry area, etc.

Well done. Keeping a good experience together in a county of underwhelming public courses.

So many courses operate on a "let's cut everything down to bare minimum quality to make money!" approach, and Palm Beach National is the opposite of that. They actually try. Sure there are spots for improvement like that filthy relic of a clubhouse, but I feel way more confident coming to this course that the experience is going to be positive than many of the courses nearby. Staff that like being there make a huge difference. Food and beverage actually available and not an inconvenience. Music on the range. A place to chill outside with a beer. Just A+ for working with what they've got.

Fun course!

Love this place! Friendly staff and the range is just steps from the pro shop. It also has targets like barrels to shoot at while you listen to Music! Also a great track that is challenging. . Try it if you never have and I’ll bet you will return.

Better have your short game

Enjoyed the course. Staff was super friendly and nice. We played the tips by accident, but the course still wasn’t long. Only pulled the driver a few times. Greens are pretty tough. At least with the pin placements today they were.

I recommend the course especially for a public course. Place was pretty packed and the pace wasn’t awful.

Generous fairways & quick greens

I was held up by a train and arrived a bit late but the starter was able to work me in a little later-thanks! Friendly staff all around. The driving range was open and had turf or mats to hit off of. The fairways are nice and wide. The rough was there but not crazy. Greens were surprisingly quick and undulating which made it fun but not so fast they were frustrating. There is water on several holes so you do have to pay attention.. With COVID, if you have a cart you are by yourself which kept the pace moving right along. We never waited on anyone until the last couple of holes. Hope to play here again when I am back in the area.
