Palmetto Golf Course
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.

Plays surprisingly long
This course is too pricey for its value. It plays pretty long so get your driver ready. The fairways and greens are in different shape. The rough has been mostly overtaken by St Augustine grass, which I don’t like. They charge $25 for walking, not a bad rate, and $50 with a cart, which is too expensive for this type of course. The driving range is no bueno, you can only hit off the mat. The practice green is in horrendous shape. The staff isn’t very friendly either.
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.
Very well maintain, the greens are excellent! And the staff very friendly and helpful!
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
Good all round course
Plenty of water hazards, good greens and tee box's
If you get it cheap worth it.
Nothing in this course is good, tee box poor, fairway poor, greens ok but with sand in them, actually bunkers good. Next to course is a kiddy playground so keep eyes on the fairway for wondering toddlers. Pace of play is sloooow and the staff will tell you they are not going to hurry anyone, there bread and butter is beginners. If you play here, play only weekdays before noon to avoid the random weekend and after school daycare kids walking around from the next door, adjacent, putt putt. The staff is great, food great. Ps come early because they will not have your golfnow reservation in the system they call it in. Still played for the price of a L bucket o balls, so can't complain too much when its cheap.
Bang for your buck
Twilight price great for course shape. Had a beautiful day, no rain.
I heard this course was renovated a few months ago and wanted to play it a second time. The greens were beautiful, looks like the bunkers were redone as well. Tee boxes were in fair condition, the fairways were in terrible condition. Do'n't play this course unless you like to hit your fairway shots from weeds, dead grass and dirt or mud. This was my second and last time playing this course.
This course may be the ugliest in America. Fairways were terrible. Greens were in good condition. Trees were dying or dead. Concrete bridges were mildewed and rusted. With the lack of courses in So Miami area, why don't they close this down and renovate the whole course? You could charge more money for the rounds and it would be a tremendously better experience. This is a real dog track.
Palmetto Golf Course
I've played this course several times over the last 40 years. It was probably in the worst shape I've seen ever. Greens were good but fairways and tee boxes were poor. This is a real dog track. The course needs to be closed and renovated, it is way past its prime.
Great and terrible.
So this is an odd review to write. First the good... The staff are the friendliest and most helpful I have EVER come across. And not just "nice for Miami", but anywhere. From the guy in the pro shop to Bob the starter, the ranger and the girl in the grill, they were all really nice and very helpful. They alone made me want to possibly come back at some point. Also, the new greens and bunkers were in great shape. Ok, now the bad. The fairways are so bad that you barely notice the great greens and bunkers. I am very good at making greens in regulation and barely did all morning because of the horrid fairways. They are quite possibly the worse I have seen anywhere and are nearly unplayable. The layout if pretty average, but could be enjoyable enough if they could get the fairways under control. Nothing "fair" about them. I hope the next time I am in Miami they will have that fixed because the people there are SO nice that I would like to support their course.
It was a beautiful Satruday morning with friendly staff greeting us at the pro shop. The greens were in excellent shape, the sand traps were sandy and soft and the tee boxes were in relatively good shape. The fairways, did not complement the value of this course. They have deteriorated quickly, with the clay eating through the fairway grass that was planted a short time ago. The staff at the 19th hole are very friendly and the food is pretty good with something for everone.
Very poor fairways
The course is generally in pretty rough shape. Most if the fairways are hard pan. The greens have been redone and are quite nice.
Wings in the restaurant are great
Staff are very friendly
This course was renovated last year. The Greens are in good shape but the fairways are terrible and several tee boxes are wanting. I don't know what it is but this course has problems that no one can seem to solve. Fairways on #4 and #8 - cart paths only on these holes but the fairways are terrible. Obviously they have drainage problems here and you would think that they would have addressed them last year when the course was closed. Forget about manicuring around the greens, from bare lies to rough and about 4 different types of grasses growing making up and down play rather difficult as it is pot luck when you miss the green. New sand in bunkers so play is not easy.
