JW Marriott Palm Course

A beautiful course with a very poor pace of play there were 2 foursomes backed up in the first few holes. On the 6th hole, starter Ron suggested we start over as we could move faster. We did and we moved faster. However we only played five holes twice iand one extra hole for a total of 11 holes before it got dark. We didn’t expect to finish given that we started at 1:22, but we did expect to finish 14 or 15 holes. And we only played 11 holes.

Play was slow due slow players in front of us. 5 hour round. Marshals tried, but could not help. Course and weather were great. Apparently, 4 1/2 hour rounds are expected.

Good Day on the Palms Course

This is not the most imaginative or difficult course you'll ever play in the PS area, but it's not a bad track, and I think the better of the 2 courses here. Course was in very good condition on day I played, especially greens. Staff was very friendly. Pace of play was the biggest negative on this day, playing just over 5 hours. We waited on almost every hole. But would play again, especially for price I paid.

Wednesday afternoon game in November

The course was in good shape. It is quite challenging. The views are very good. We enjoyed the day except for the pace of play.

It took 5 hours to play. The problem was with 2 groups in front of us that was very slow and were probably 3 or 4 holes out of position. There was no marshal on the course to deal with this situation. It was disappointing.

Great Course!

Great course and in great condition. All that is missing is better course diagrams. Some surprising water shows up in blind areas.

Nice but tight

Pretty course but very tight as often bordered by high traffic roads and/or very close villas. I prefer the JW Valley course!
