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.

Retro Masterpiece

First time playing PBN. Course is challenging and in great shape. A little drive for us in Broward but well worth it. Straight shot, easy on/off the turnpike. Excellent practice facility. Lost $10 to my friend who chipped it into the buckets. Anyway still a great day! We'll be back!

Challenging

This was my second time to play Palm Beach National Golf Course. I'd forgotten just how challenging the course can be. It is a little longer than most of the courses that I play. But it actually demanded that I use long irons or my 5 or 7 wood to make it to the green. However, the greens were very fast and rolled very true. So I would say it was challenging but very fair. I'll be back!

Met new friends and had a nice day

The course was in excellent shape. Paired with two nice gentlemen, Tom and Mark, and we had a very nice staff. The staff was friendly and had a sandwich at the Tiki Bar. We would go back if we were in the area.

Nice layout

First time playing here with a friend that lives in the area. A solid layout which gives you a chance to shoot a good score. Fair but there are a few possible disaster holes sprinkled throughout. I was disappointed to see holes 5 and 6 closed the day we played there due to wet conditions but other than that we had a great time playing at Palm Beach National. I will probably play here next time I'm in the area.

A Good but wet course

The greens and layouts are good but the course is generally very wet. Therefore, it's recommended to play the course during dry days. The layouts provide some challenges with water and huge doglegs.
Anyway, it's a fun course and I would play it again.

Great course for the Average Golfer!!

Overall I enjoyed myself as much as I could considering the circumstances. Unfortunately it rained the day I played so I only got 9-holes in. But during that time, the staff was super friendly so I give them an A+ The course was pretty well maintained for a public course and the layout was challenging enough that I had my fair share of testers, but if you are consistent enough it is scoreable. Pace of play was decent considering the course was packed and I was a single behind two foursomes. I was able to get a rain check for my 9 holes no problem. I definitely reccomend this course to anyone looking for a good time and some good golf!

Perfect Day

Enjoyed a great day back on the golf course. The course was moving quick with individual carts and checkin was very smooth. The food and drink delivery was quick right to our hole. We will definitely be back. The music was playing and the staff was very friendly. The greens were rolling smooth and the fairways had great lies.
