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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Decided at the last minute to try for the first time Palm Valley Palms course. Was paired up with 3 gentlemen from Canada who were great to play with. Found the course in very good shape from tee to green with a number of interesting holes. Had not tried the course previously due to reviews indicating 5+ hour rounds. Pace of play was right at their recommended pace of 4 hours and 15 minutes which was a relief after the starter on the first tee box had suggested that the round might take 5 hours. Will look to play again in the near future and got a good deal on Golf Now.
