Good layout!

Have not played there in a while. I was presently surprised. Fairways were in very good shape, however greens just a little rough.

Great fun and value!

I have been playing this course for the past 5 years. It was initially a very rough track, but each time back has been better and better to where Palm Beach National is the most relaxed and fun course to take in. Great conditions and a laid back attitude.

Great work putting this course back in the “places to play” conversation!

Very enjoyable

Played today for the first time & found the staff very welcoming, the course was in great condition, greens were a little rough but they were fast & took some reading.

I was put with 3 other guys who play here on a more regular basis & they were great fun to be with, good company.

I would play this again when I’m in the area for sure.

course in good shape

Enjoyed the ease of getting into course and staff friendliness. Course in beautiful condition and rough was cut properly so if ball went off course, it was retrievable. Greens were fast and traps were soft.

Fun place, good value

Pace of play is a bit slow, seems the tee times are always a bit behind. I don’t mind that stuff, my biggest complaint is that the greens are rough, very patchy and inconsistent. Otherwise I love the place,. Great driving range, upbeat and fun atmosphere. Staff is super friendly. Price is right.

New and improved

The course is really nice recently. Looks like it had a major makeover. Fairways are nicely mowed and tight. Greens are tight, smooth and fast now. Rough is still a little punishing. If you haven't played there recently, go check it out. Staff is helpful and friendly as always. Keep it up yall. Will be back again soon.

Fun, Enjoyable course

I really dislike the 5 point scale on Golf Advisor; much prefer a 10 point scale. Feel like I'm cheating Palm Beach National with a "Good" rating, but have to save the "Excellent" for the cream of the crop.

In any case, I've always really enjoyed PBN. It is a fun, laid back place, and you get that vibe starting at the range complete with Field Goals and music.

Course is always in good shape, especially the greens. I enjoy the layout with a lot of wide open fairways, so you can hit driver on every non-Par 3. Only complaint for this round is that we got a late start and the group in front was a little slow, so finished the round later than we should of.

In any case, definitely recommend playing the course, if you haven't yet.

Good golf course to try out

It's a good golf course that is friendly and has good layout. Its overall condition is quite good except the greens that were a little bumpy due to probably a recent aeration. The pace is a bit slow but is reasonable enough to not bother you so much..

Disappointed with Treatment

I have played this course before on several occasions thru Golfnow and really enjoyed the day. Today, prior to booking I called and inquired about the available time and if I would be playing with other people. Arrived 30 minutes prior to tee time and was told the other people had arrived early and since there was no one waiting we sent them out earlier. My choice was to either hurry up and catch up with them or play alone since the next time when I would be able to play with someone would be about 1/1/2 hours. Called Golfnow and they were able to credit the round which was much appreciated.
