Palmetto Golf Course gets its name from the beautiful palmetto trees that line the fairways and meandering waterways. Although they add to the scenery, the trees double as a challenging element of the course since they can also affect shots. The golf course was designed by Dick Wilson, who has designed many other courses in the area. Water hazards come into play on 10 holes of the course, including the notable signature hole, which a 435-yard par-4. There are also sand bunkers strategically placed throughout. The Palmetto Golf Course facility boasts lighted practice facilities, including a practice putting green and driving range.

Not a good course

Course is in terrible shape. Greens have patches everywhere. The fairway is not in good shape either. This is definitely a course you should try to avoid if you're a good golfer who likes to play on a nice track.

Great compared to other similarly priced courses in the area

I have played pretty much every course around this price ($40-$60) in the Miami area within the last 2 months. This one has been my favorite. Greens and fairways were great (not patchy at all) and layout definitely had some challenging holes. Definitely going to make this a course I play a lot until the premier card comes back.

Palmetto Golf Course

I bought a hot deal through here and got 18 holes for $18 with cart. I played as a single for 3 holes then it started to rain. I decided to go back to the clubhouse where there's a Sports Grille and got a pint while I waited for the rain to subside, not a bad thing at all. Rain finished and then got to playing. There are plenty of bunkers and water traps. The fairways are in good condition and the green are in great condition. The only thing since it was raining is that it was a little muddy so bring a wet towel just in case. Overall, great experience. The staff is friendly, there's nice putting greens, driving range, SPORTS GRILLE, mini golf, if you can't have a good time here then IDK where you might.

Smells and Lack of Common Sense

Just to disclaim, the staff from the starter to the staff in the clubhouse were friendly, however, whether he was the director or the manager who would not let us start before our tee time even though there was nobody on the course was just annoying. Additionally, the course smelled toxic and the houses on the course had loud music blaring. Overall, this has been more in line with the majority of the courses in Miami. Will not be playing again any time soon, but the amount of water hazards was somewhat fun...

Great local course for price

Friendly staff, driving range (not on real grass though) putting range, great wings bar afterwards..it's perfect. Did I mention reasonable price. Water on almost every hole, but the holes aren't overly difficult to be discouraging to new players. Play there quite a bit, and will definitely be back.

Avoid this Golf Course

On two occasions they did not honor the reserved time. I let it go the first time, the second time made me write this poor review. I will never waste my time with this course. They have no concern for their patrons. Pace of play was super slow. I would only recommend this course to beginners who are just starting out.

Unkept backyard grass

The fairways were full of weeds. Greens ok but the rest of the course horrible. It looked like an unkept lawn in a neighborhood.

Playing at Palmetto

I like to play at a fast pace.I hope the management does not care if you pass slower players so I can get in my 18 holes.I need to practice to win my title back from someone who lives in South America.So watch out for old man who thinks he can bring the title back to the states. Yours Fred
