Really old and run down facility. Rated a 4 star on GolfNow but nothing above 2 stars. Greens in poor shape and different conditions each hole. Ground was hard as water does not seem to be used to irrigate the course. Rock hard and brown. Music loud at clubhouse with 1950's music. They try other angles to make up for lack of effort to keep conditions decent. Run, don't walkaway from this course.

Normally a pleasant round of golf. Due to the rowdy tournament in front of us less enjoyable. Hopefully the club will not send people out in back of a tournament . We were not notified of a tournament upon booking. Would have been nice to know. We're unable to complete round.

The experience at Palm Beach National is very unique. The music is fun and sets up the course perfectly. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The free rum shots and Bluetooth speakers make this the course to play! The green fees are very reasonable and the course is in great shape! We had a very enjoyable day and can’t wait to come back again!

this course is in average condition, it played very forgiving due to wide fairways. Some greens were in below average condition, but playable. the staff were very friendly and helpful.I would play this course again.

This was my 1st time playing Palm Beach Nat'l in Lake Worth (& the 6th Palm Beach/Martin County course that I've played for the 1st time in the last 3 weeks). PB National has Country music blaring from their P/A system that covers the 1st & 10th tee and driving range. I've never experienced that before... it gave me a headache... too loud. Mike in the Golf shop was friendly and welcoming (good 1st impression) but the starter appeared agitated and only seemed intent on pushing golfers out onto the course, including a much younger and more athletic 4some who teed off less than 5 minutes later and were hitting into the back of us (with a 4some in front of us) for the front 9. The back 9 was more enjoyable because the 4some that was behind us sped in front us at the turn. It was a hot day (85 degrees) but we never saw a concession cart. The course layout is very forgiving and has enough variety in the shape of the holes to make it interesting. Unfortunately, quite a few of the greens were in poor condition (patches of brown and deeply ingrown weeds that bumped putts off line). What does it cost to put GPS on the carts? ...that would be a big +. I paid $30 (+ a $4.98 booking fee thru Golf Now) to play. I would play here again if the price is $30 or less.

First off at 6:51. Two of us finished the front by 7:15. Only to find a twosome on 10. They were slow and didn't consider waving us thru. Apparently they do this frequently with 9 holders. We found out afterwards. We could have been by them

In 5 minutes. Disappointing. We actually check with the starter after 9 and he didn't even mention the twosome he sent off in front of us.

The tiki bar, the server and the bag guy were great.
