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!
