Nice layout, rough greens.
If you have not played Saddlebrook before, be advised you will have to valet your vehicle. The pro shop will validate your valet ticket. The tees and fairways were in fair condition, and most of the bunkers were in good shape. The greens, however, are in pretty rough shape. Very bumpy and inconsistent. Everyone on staff from the valet, cart wranglers, pro shop, starter and beverage cart were very nice and welcoming. This is a difficult time of the year for greens in Florida, so lower your expectations in that area if you plan a round here.
Pace of play was reasonable for a Sunday morning (4 hours).
What a maze
Such a maze to get around. Didn't like the here and there to get to the driving range and than back to pro shop and than to the golf course. Won't go back, u need a GPS to get around. Plus we had to wait at every hole to tee off took 4 1/2 hours to play. Some greens need repair badly. Plus we had to park a mile away from everything and ride a bus with are clubs.
Well maintained course with courteous and friendly staff. Great experience.
Great for money spent.
They are currently doing some work on greens and is wet due to all the rain but for the money it is fantastic.
First time playing this course but really enjoyed the course layout. The greens had been punched recently and a lot of the greens had bad spots. Hard to figure out how to park and get to the pro shop.
Palmer Course July
I was pleasantly surprised on the course. The staff has recently airated the greens and I was not upset at all due to the fact that it was such a nice course. Will be playing there again. Thank you.
Great condition course, not the longest but the small tiered greens require an accurate approach shot.
All Staff were really friendly, and made our party feel really welcome.
Good course - better Amenities
The greens were so-so. They had been aerated recently and still had holes. If you could predict the hops, you could get close from a distance, otherwise, good luck.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The driving range was a long way from everything.
Great course but greens poked
I have played the Palmer course many times when the greens weren't poked and a real fun and challenging course always in great condition. I knew the greens were aerated but decided to play anyways thinking with all the rain that they'd be healed a bit, but was wrong. Between sand and big holes were quite bumpy and basically in the automatic 2-putt range. The day was great weather-wise and pace of play was terrific as we started at 10am and finished at 12:15, and that was us being a twosome. Highly recommend this course when greens heal up.
