Played the Palm 18. Course is in the best shape I've seen pre-overseed schedule! Greens were somewhere around 8-10 with a lot of subtle breaks! Fun day putting! Pins were is some pretty nefarious locations too!

I've always liked this course! Looking forward to playing the Pine after over seeding!

The player assistants and club house staff really make you feel welcome!

Played the Palms as the Pine was being over-seeded.

Others noted some rough conditions on the back side, but I found most of them to be out of play. My wife played with me and found the course women-friendly.

Sandwiches on the cart were extremely dry. We were also disappointed to find that there was no food in the restaurant after 3pm. We played an afternoon round and would have liked to have had some food to enjoy the sunset over Camel back.

Played this course for 10 years and hosted a golf tournament there for years as well with hundreds of HS golfers from around the USA. Yesterday the conditions were terrible, but the problem was pace of play. They only had one of the two courses open so they over-filled the course. After 5 1/2 hours we had to leave and were only on hole 15. Never will be back

We played the Palm course this time - Pines closed for overseeding. Have played both 18's several times before. Holes 11-16 are badly in need of lots of repair - large expanses of grass-less sand and mud, sand traps hard as rock with no sand or standing water, goose poop and geese everywhere : > (. Usually a good golfing experience, but this time very disappointing.

Played Palm Course for first time since Pines Course was undergoing reseeding. The latter course is easier. Course maintains schedule well which keeps pace very well. Our foursome never caught up to the group in front of us.

Labor Day weekend and they close the snack bar at noon on a 104 degree day. Saw drink cart on first hole and tenth, not well timed. Cart girl wasn't friendly at all. The course wasn't well maintained with the rough long enough to swallow a ball just inches off the fairway. Lots of time needed to locate the ball. Pin placements were set for a tournament rather than a busy hacker weekend. Pace of play was only bright spot.

This is a pretty, established course. Mature trees, lots of water, nice grass. I had not played course before but found a good deal on golfnow so took the opportunity to try it out. Pace of play was good as were course conditions. Would definitely play course again.
