Good layout with lots of water. Short from whites but many challenges. Sand in traps tour quality and greens adequate with pronounced grain. Will play again before heading north.

Very well maintained and at times challenging course. The first hole can be a bear with water on both the tee shot and second shot to the green. Before the redesign this was #10 hole and not quite as daunting as one had played nine holes previously. Advice: Skip the restaurant.

My wife and I played on a sunny Thursday. We caught a threesome on the third hole and they readily requested we played through which we gladly did and played the eighteen holes in just over 2 1/2 hours. Love Summer Golf!!! The course and greens are in excellent condition considering our lack of rain so far this year. We would give the course an "excellent" rating except the restaurant is way below par, so a "good" rating.

I like this course because it forces you to place your ball strategically for your next shot. The course is narrow which forces me to not try and drive the ball 300 yds. Keeps me in control of my ball flight.

Play this course often and it can be humbling. Playing within your honest skill level is a must. Take what it gives you and don't overestimate your talent and you'll be on your way to appreciating a good challenge. It cane make anyone a better golfer if they accept the lesson. Many first timers leave mumbling to themselves, thereby missing out on a fun opportunity.

Great course with friendly staff and a bar and grill (amazing burger and fries). The course conditions were great and pace was steady. However I suggest you leave your ego at home and use good course management. Misses left and right will prove costly. Tight fairways and protected green make this course challenging but fun.

We enjoy the challenging layout of Palm Cove with water in play on at least eleven holes. The greens considering the lack of rainfall are in excellent condition as are the fairways. All in all the course is well worth the money. The restaurant is another story, if you eat inside the hot dogs are $7.00 and the brauts are $8.00, both of inferior quality, stale tasting and the size of one out of an eight pack you'd buy at Walmart for $2.50 both served with a few chips. For some reason both are $2.00 less on the menu posted in the golf cart.

This course has some great golf holes and demanding shot requirements. Tee selection is important because there are some decent forced carries on some of the back tees. The greens are in great shape and fair. Pay attention to the course map on the scorecard because there are some hidden hazards that are reachable from the tee. Installing GPS would be a great help for those new to the course. All that being said this is great golf course and I had a great day with the two gentlemen they paired me with. Staff was outstanding and eager to please. The man who greets you and takes care of your clubs is a great guy and he always has a smile with greeting as you arrive or a request for you to return as you leave. Play this course whenever you’re in the area.
