Best course around

Always a good round at PPCC, great conditions for time of year. Fun layout some fun holes. Pace of play could be sped up but it's understood, however usually the course will have players jumping all over the place, even had a group jump on 10 and tee off as I was clearly (as a single) walking off 9 green today. Due to a 2.5 hour solo front nine and that instance, I decided to leave after 9 but paying for 18. Obviously player ignorance is not the management fault, however it seems to be a trend at PPCC. Otherwise great course great facility

Palmetto Pines Country Club in Cape Coral

Fun course in okay shape. Staff was treating course for scattered weeds.

Golf carts had GPS screen. Bob in Pro-shop was very friendly and accomodating.

I pretty much had the whole course to myself due to the hot weather.

Weeds, Weeds, and more Weeds

This will be brief. This was a prestigious private club in the 70’s and 80’s. Original Authur Hills design.

It has gone down hill sadly.

Unless some money is injected into the course, it will not survive. The weeds have taken over the entire golf course.

I am hoping for a positive outcome as Cape Coral doesn’t have any quality golf options anymore .

Not worth $30 bucks. I am bummed:

Todd, thank you for taking the time to post a review for Palmetto-Pine Country Club. We are aware of the weed pressure that we have encountered this year. After the difficult summer of 2017 (two 20 inch floods and Irma) we over seeded the course heavily for the last season. We came out of this difficult transition and into the record rainfall of May 2018, encountering a massive grassy weed bloom (mainly Goosegrass, Signal Grass, Sedge, and Bull Paspalum). In the beginning of June, we initiated a heavy spraying program beginning with greens and green surrounds then moving to fairways in the middle of June. Starting July 1, we began the third phase of our program, spraying out the non-irrigated (outer rough) areas of the golf course that will be replanted with Bahia grass as originally designed by Mr Hills. We are happy with our progress to date, but realize we still have some work remaining and feel confident that we will be able to return the golf course to top condition. We hope we have the chance to welcome you back for an improved golf experience soon.

Nice Course. Friendly Staff.

The staff made us feel very welcome and thanked us for choosing to play here. The course layout is very fair and fun. The large practice putting green is the same speed as the actual greens. There is a nice driving range. For those who want to practice at the range on a regular basis, a very affordable package which includes unlimited range balls and access to the short game practice area is available. We did not go to the restaurant this time, but have had a good experience in the past. If you have not gone to Palmetto-Pine to play or practice, you should. You will enjoy it. if you have gone before, go back. The course is in fine shape, and the staff are all extremely friendly and helpful.

Poor Value

Don't bother unless this is your only course nearby. This is in my opinion, maybe a $20.00 course. For the same price or maybe just $5.00 more there are many much nicer courses.The facilities at least 30 years old, T boxes poor, if you're a foot off the fairway you may as well be playing in your backyard. Overall impression is just a rough looking course. I will give them credit for GPS in the cart and their sand bunkers were in good shape.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, however, we are sorry that your recent experience at Palmetto-Pine Country Club did not meet your expectations. As we have posted and shared with each player, we are in the final stages of a weed eradication program. Although species-specific herbicides attack primarily certain groups of plants, there is some discoloration and growth impact on the Bermuda grass in both the fairway and rough areas. We realize this but will continue the summer agronomic procedures that are necessary in these areas. As for the history of the club, Palmetto-Pine is 49 years old and remains Arthur Hill's first Florida golf course. We hope that you take the opportunity to visit us later this summer as the fruits of our efforts manifest themselves.

Great layout

Long, wide fairways. Interesting greens approaches. Staff was very nice and informative. (Thanks Matt). The only thing that can use improvement is the numerous weeds in the short grass on the sides of the fairway.
