Not a good experience

Was told upon arrival the greens on the back nine were being airated, so I had to play the front nine twice, in addition to that the front nine greens were being airated and played terrible. I also didn’t get to use my voucher and had to pay again. So I don’t know how your app works but when I tried to cancel because I couldn’t use the app to show them I had already paid. So not happy with the course and you guys. Because through the app there is no way to contact you or rectify this. So paid twice to play a course that was in the worst shape I have ever seen.

Interesting course layout.

The layout of the course is interesting with some blind shots. The greens were in great shape and the course property is nice looking.

Good experience with extremely friendly staff

First time playing and it was a good experience - the staff was great, course layout
Is difficult to understand without the yardage book which was supplied by staff with advice as well. Even with the book I would play different the second time around as there are a few blind tee shots from back tees to a narrow fairway. The greens rolled true and it was Very affordable and I will come back.

Short but challenging

Beautiful course. It's not very long, but the course is quite narrow. Plan to lose a few balls.

Great Track!!!

Drove 2 hours to play Meadowood the day before only to find out they were closed! No call, no alert, nothing! Kudos to Meadowood and Golfnow! Played Sandridge instead and had a great time. Played Palm Cove Sunday morning and was cart path only. Some holes were ok but generally was pretty saturated due to an inch of rain the night before. Great course from the tips! Greens were solid, fairways plush, tee boxes pretty good. I’ll drive 2 hours anytime for a course like Palm Cove. Only drawback are the idiot weekend warriors that don’t obey cart path only and drive all over the course, tearing it up. (Foursome begins us). These individuals should be banned from playing the game. Respect the course and respect the game. Enjoy Palm Cove! It’s a shorter track that’s tests shot making ability! but is very fair.

Nice track great value

Nice track don’t let the short length fool you, must hit your ball or you will feel some pain. Will definitely play it again with a different game plan.

Interesting and fun!

Some tricky and fun layouts. Bring extra balls as they are easy to lose on some holes.

Hit it straight

This is a tight course with house, swamps, and ponds, so you need to hit it straight or bring plenty of balls. You will use all of the clubs in the bag. The course is in very nice shape from tee to green.The staff was very helpful and friendly. I;ll continue to go back and play it again. Remember straight is better than long .

Good To Be Back

My wife and I have been home bound for too long so we really enjoyed our round of golf, not necessarily the scores we turned in. The entire course is in great shape and as always the greens were true and quick. The pace of play was very good until we caught a foursome on 14. They were playing the ninth hole when we were playing the second hole. They had played five hole and were on the sixth since we saw them on the ninth tee and we had played thirteen holes in the same time frame so the final five holes were agonizingly slow, but we still were glad to be on a golf course again and we'll be back hopefully not the same days as that foursome.

My Favorite Course in the area

This winter I have been playing Palm Cove 2 or 3 times a week, and I am shooting in the low 90s, sometimes even an 89. Like today!

This course is very fair for a woman. Keep your ball in the fairway and you can reach the green in regulation.

The greens are not pristine, but the course is beautiful with lots of landscaping and water.

Look for great deals on GolfNow.

Tight and Challenging!

Arrived ahead of schedule and checked in!! We got out around our appointed time. Had to wait until last minute to load cart, due to single cart usage. (Coronavirus situation). Was paired with a nice, friendly and easy going couple! Who played pretty well and knew the course.

Enjoyed our round! Course was not in the greatest shape, but was playable. Golf course is very tight with lots of water and wetlands. Lost quite a few balls. LOL!! Since it had rained a lot recently, course drained pretty well, not too many muddy areas.

Pace of play was slow took just over 4 hours.. I didn’t have my best day but enjoyed the company and the challenges the course threw at me!! Had played here once before about a year ago.

Last Day at Palm Cove

At least for April, due to an older ( Safer at Home ) by the Florida Governor effective midnight 4/2/20, resulting in Closure of allFlorida golf courses for April ( and perhaps longer?? )
Too bad as the course and staff are first class and it is a fun place to play.
The one star re amenities is temporary as they were in the process of shutting down due to Gov. De Santis’ order. Ordinarily their facilities are fine. Ran into a number of folks from further south in Florida ( where courses had been closed earlier by county direction ) and they all really liked the Palm Cove layout and conditions.
