Early bird gets the worm!

Got up early, had a great relaxed round. Pace of play is great. Very well maintained, large, fun greens. No hitting from mats! Free pushcart. No attendant b/c Covid but the grounds staff is hard at work. Make sure you beat the heat, bring a few extra balls because the water hazards are prominent.

Always lifelike this little 3 par course. Fairways stay green even in the extreme heat. The greens need more water. But always fun and great short game practice!

Fantastic

I have to say, so it's a par 3 course, it is tricky and fun to play. The greens are great, the fairways are fabulous. there's enough sand traps and water holes to make the course quite challenging. I would recommended totally. It is also beautiful

Excellent Iron Practice

Very short all par 3 with plenty of water and bunkers to give you a little challenge. Bunkers could use more sand and/or be raked by grounds crew in the mornings. Only problem was nearly getting hit 3 times today by errant shots from other holes. Twice, no warning was yelled and no acknowledgement of the near miss. Sigh...hoping it was just an off day for golf etiquette.

Palm Royale short game beauty.

Golfed here for the first time because a friend had back surgery a while back and wanted to try golf again. We knew it was going to be a short course and it was a great experience for this length of course. Friendly and helpful staff, great course conditions, and a reasonable pace of play for Friday afternoon. Finished 18 in 2 hours and 50 minutes. Minimal waits at about 4 holes. Great short game practice. Will be back.

Great Par 3 Course In Coachella Valley!

True Par 3; holes vary from 82 to 171 yards, averaging around 120. Water in play on most. Best feature was greens: very well maintained, pretty quick, testing undulations; few straight putts! Our first day playing out of the Midwest “deep freeze”: perfect way to recall short game and putting! Walking only, but push carts available. 18 hole senior rate with carts was $32.

Nice Course

We enjoyed this course. Great for our first time out in awhile. A lot of water but short enough holes to be able to get over the water. We like Par 3's.
