September overseed complete- Enjoy!
Angel Park Palm is the easier of the two Angel Park courses. It's a par-70 (3 par-5s, 5 par-3s), a shorter course, but always a fun day welcomes you with wide fairways, over-water or canyons par 3s and a few tricky greens (Hint: remember to look for the Stratosphere to factor in a little downhill break to the East). You'll start with what can be a nasty dogleg-left hole with OB all the way down on the left side and follow with a long par-3 that plays uphill more than you may think... but after that the course becomes much easier. The 9th has a lake on the left that will gobble up any ball hit close to the 10-yard bank framing it and the 10th can be a brute with a long uphill approach, but there are quite a number of possible birdie holes, too. Altogether it's a pleasant, friendly and fun desert layout. The overseeding is finished, so although you may have to clean some mud off your ball for a week or two still, the course is as pretty as it gets and will be shortly be a great place to play for a family/friends day. Likewise for the greens- a little slow and bumpy after the overseed, but in a week or so expect them to be perfect again. They've done a great job fixing the bunkers, too. Because of the wind we get here in Vegas, many of them had been scoured clean of sand and it was easy to "drop-kick" your ball from the hard-as-concrete bottoms way over the greens for awhile, but although they're still somewhat on the hard side, they're very playable- just go a little steeper and a touch harder to get the ball out and on. For those seeking a more challenging layout, head for the Mountain Course on the same property.
Palm course review
Got there early for my round and hit some balls at the range. Be advised the range is mat only, but the mats seem to be pretty high quality and I had no issues hitting off them. There is also a huge practice chipping area and 2 putting greens near the clubhouse.
Today it was really windy, which made the course more challenging to say the least. I've played 4 courses so far since moving to Vegas, and this one was by far the best designed. Many interesting hole designs and there is actually some significant elevation changes as well which was a surprise.
Fairways and tee boxes were in excellent condition. The one area of concern is the greens. They were somewhat bumpy and it looks like a few spots they looked burned out. Overall though it wasnt detracting to the point where it was affecting my game.
Another good thing about this course is there isnt too much OB that comes into play. Of course there is the usual desert waste areas and a few water features as well.
None of the holes are really that difficult per se (except for #10 which was playing 439 into a 15mph wind), but if you hit it in the wrong spot you will be penalized. For example #5 is a 186 par 3. The pin was far left and not wanting to short side myself so I bailed out too far right. I thought my ball would be just off the green in the rough. Wrong...there was a slope which took the ball down into the waste area. Penalty stroke later and a bad chip up the hill got me a triple bogey. Turns out I would have been better off going straight for the pin and would have been better off short siding myself. So it's one of those courses where if you play it a second time, your score will probably improve just from knowing where and where not to hit it.
Overall I enjoyed this course and except for some of the greens being subpar, it was well worth the money and I'll definitely be returning to get my revenge on the course. And once again, I played a 3 hour round of golf and didnt see another person until I hit the 15th hole when things slowed up.
This is a very playable course. Each hole is different and interesting. Course is in great shape with exception of a couple of greens.
Player Friendly Track
Enjoyable round on a track where greens and fairways were in great shape. The course was very busy for a midweek day, but pace of play was not an issue.
With other courses in Vegas under repairs, this gem was jammed. Our twosome was behind all foursomes and the pace was very slow. Waited at the boxes, then in the fairway, for 18 holes. Played here in May at normal pace. Course was in great shape, staff was friendly, cart girl on course. Will be playing here next time in town. Great price too!
Thank you for your comments and rating and we appreciate your business. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The course was in great shape
The staff was friendly. The food was very good and reasonable priced. The course was in great shape. The layout of the driving range, putting greens, and starter box easy to find. Very enjoyable round of golf.
Greens need attention
I'm pretty sure I'm NOT going to be playing here for a few months the greens need some serious attention bump bump bump bump. The starter is an interesting character as well, NOT in a good way...

Greens were hard and bumpy.
Angel Park Palm course
Everything here was above average except the greens. They must of had some type of disease because the greens were very bumpy and slow. The tee offs and fairways were excellent. The staff was friendly enough and the food was excellent. The course is walkable but there is a couple of good hikes from hole 3 to 4 and 13 to 14. Other than that it is very walkable.
The weather was perfect, the staff was very friendly, other golfers we met on the course were out for a good time and the price was right. Enjoyable afternoon.
Slowest game of golf I've ever played
My only complaint is that they jam pack the course and the pace is miserably slow. I waited on every shot I took that day and with a 2pm tee time I sank my last putt in pure darkness. Other than the pace this is a very nice course and has some stellar amenities!
Slow, Slow Play
A three hour front nine. Course was in decent shape, greens fast. Lots of bird droppings on the course and on some greens. A really good design and fun layout. Not the usual straight holes, every hole has some character. I have played here a few times and always enjoy the layout. I just wish they didn't jam so many people on the course.
