Rating 73.3
Type Public
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.

Not in golf play conditions

Course had been cut up the day before. The greens were thick and slow. Was to tee off at 738 am. Did not get out until 8 am. Pace of play was slow. Overall was not worth the $30. Course should not have been open for play.

Great test

Great test for golf due to the dog legs. Must place the ball in the right place in the fairway to get the correct angle to the pin.

Unbearably slow

Course was in pretty good shape, but pace of play was unacceptable as there was a tournament finishing up. Waited 40 minutes on last par 3 and had to quit after 9 holes. Just not fun.

Great valued. Fun track.

Great trailer park course. Course is in great shape. Greens are a little difficult but rolling true. New GPS system in the carts but as of today the distance measuring function has not been installed.

Nice course, this was our second time playing it. First time was very windy and cold. This time it was a little windy but the temperature was much nicer. Over all nice course, 18 is a tough hole.

Great Course

Really enjoyed the course!! Pace was extremely slow!! Greens were great with just the right pace. Had an issue not with the course but with Google maps on the way there. Google maps off the golf now app took me to a church/school about 5 blocks from the course. Missed my tee time but the staff worked us right in once we arrived.

Good Value

Pace of play was slow on the front 9. The Marshall said we were behind the golf school but they stopped after 9 holes and the pace of play was better on the back 9.

Palm Valley best deal in town

I played Palm Valley for the first time and enjoyed it. The course layout is very good and some of the holes are challenging. Fairways are very well maintained and green is in very good condition and fast. Pace of play little bit slow as we finished the round in 4 hrs and 35 mins. Staff is very friendly and cafe offers many choices for drinks and food. Drink cart came 3-4 times during the round. I would go back again to play the course.

Palm Wednesday

Nice layout! Plays to the player who "cuts" the ball

Smallish firm greens. Soft sand bunkers. The marshal was pretty visible throughout the round so you know he kept slow groups moving along. Nothing to see here! We were a two-some. Greens running about 8 on the stimp and were cut pretty tight. Pretty lush all over. Some burn spots on some fairways but no biggie. Re-playable for sure!
