Course Closed

Unfortunately, this course is closed. The voicemail says "permanently". I'm hoping someone will purchase and restore this great tract. The condition has deteriorated over the years, but the layout is great. I've been playing there since it opened in the 90s as we own a vacation home right across Lake Minneola. It was convenient and a great test of golf for all skill levels. There are other options in Clermont, but Palisades was my favorite along with Sugarloaf Mountain which also closed several years ago.

Jewell in the rough

Course is going through some much needed changes. The character of the course is unmistakeable. Our support for the course for the next year will be paramount for us to have a class course in the future!!!!! We will try to be there every chance we can

New Ownership

We played here in Jan/Feb and it had just gotten a new manager who had great plans. GolfNow had a really super low price so we booked. Found out that the course had been closed and just opened 2 weeks prior to our tee time. The course needs a lot of work, its not a bad layout, the greens - dance floor (as my husband calls it) - need to be weeded. If they can improve the greens, that would be a BIG plus. Seed/fertilize the fairways, it'll be a great course. Then they can work on getting the restaurant reopened - golfers need that 9th hole!!!!

Big disappointment

Course conditions have deteriorated badly this year. Couldn't tell any difference between tee boxes, fairways and rough, mostly weeds and bare spots. Greens were spotty at best. Signs say "under new management.working to improve conditions" I hope so

Course Must Be Closing Soon

We have played this course many times in the past 7 years and ave had some memorable rounds. Conditions were always improving and it was looking positive for the courses future. This is the firsts time we've played here since Spring of 2015 and it was by far the worse conditions we've ever seen not only on this course but on any that we've ever played! The tee boxes were TERRIBLE and the greens had not been cut for 8-10 days! We couldn't determine the difference between the green and the fringe. The cups had grown in around the hole approx 1 inch which made it VERY difficult to put on and to even drop a put.... We had made a tee time thru GolfNow and upon arrival, ht manager proceeded to show his extreme displeasure for GolfNow and informed us that they don't honor GolfNow and haven't for months!! Major development going on all around the course for future housing...won't be long before the houses will not only line the fairways but will be directly down the middle of them as well.

Checking Palisades Conditions Now

Fairways were horrible. Greens okay but not mowed and very slow and bumpy. No food service. Course seems to be deteriorating. We have played at least once over several years. It is getting worse.

Under new ownership as of last year and after speaking with other golfers very disappointed in this course. The management are trying their best but are hinder by not enough golf carts (36) depleted by 10 am or shortly after. Have part time maintance workers fairways average ,green very poor condition.

Thank you for the review, aa2033! We understand that waiting for a cart is frustrating. Unfortunately, prior management did not reserve enough before the season. However, we are getting in a shipment this month and do not foresee this being an issue any longer. We're also continuing to improve our conditions and hope you'll visit us again soon.
