The Palms Course at the Palm Valley Golf Club is one of two 18-hole courses offered at the facility. Located only a short distance from downtown Phoenix, the course is not only conveniently located but also accessible by any skill level of golfer. It provides adequate challenge for advanced players while offering a chance for less experienced golfers to hone their game. The golf course has a links-style design with a desert landscape that ranges between hilly and flat. Bunkers protect both the fairways and greens. There is also a lake that forms water hazards for two holes. Beginning in February, wind usually becomes at Palm Valley Golf Club's Palms Course.

Course is Ok.

The course was a bit wet and sloppy. Seems odd given the whether was a bit cooler today. Also, several holes had a bit longer carry go get to the fairway. That adds some challenge to my more beginner playing partner. It would be best for beginner to play it forward.

Pace of play was pretty good...at just over 4 hours!

Great Condition after Overseed

This course was in really good shape. The overseed here came in nicely. We played the North/South combo. The North course was overseed a couple weeks before the South, and was cut a little closer on the fairways and greens. Fairways on both were still very moist and getting a lot of rollout, but played well. South was a little fluffier, but not bad at all. Greens on both sides rolled great and held shots.

Nice course - good shape

Course was in great shape after overseeding. Greens were a little slow but will continue to improve with a little time. Pace was quite slow was only drawback of the day.

Cart Path only - no water

The north course was Cart Path only due to over seeding. This issue was that there was no water (yes we were told) but knew there was a travelling cart to supply items for purchase. Saw the person once and was told she would be on the north course for added service. No one showed up and the day was hot. It was uncomfortable since we did not bring enough water/drink assuming we would purchase same. Also not enough shade. Only recommend during cooler times.

Palm Valley West -South

Three weeks after overseeding, we played the West- South 9 holes courses. The practice greens and driving range were still closed. However the play was steady and the course was a fun adventure.

Course conditions were brutal

Understanding that they are getting ready to overseed but 40 dollars for burned out fury greens and unkept hole cuts. Really not happy with the price that was demanded for how the course conditions were.

Don’t waste your money

The course is in awful condition. The greens weren’t completely cut. The fairways were long and several were just weeds. Pace of play was a joke. We finally played through the group ahead of us on twelve, they were four holes behind. No rangers. No beverage carts on the course. A miserable experience. Will never go back!!!!

Glad I tried it out

This course is in terrific condition for this time a year. Played south then west and enjoyed the challenge and layout. No refreshment cart at all which is kind of a bummer but all said and done, I’m def going to play again.

Met expectation for the price point.

Typical summer in Phoenix conditions; Aeriated greens, bare spots in the fairway, and no drinking water on the course. the desert areas were clean and free of excess brush. Conditions on this date were very slow. We've been playing 3.5 hour rounds and this was 4.25 hours.
