In great shape
The course was in fantastic condition, greens apparently were punch over a month or more ago but roll true and look great. Front 9 is long from gold or tips for a higher handicapper golfer, but average wide fairway makeup for the length. Gold’s play 6300 plus but you can move up to whites which is 6000 plus. The back 9 looks is much shorter but because of the wind it plays longer. Friendly staff great atmosphere really enjoyed the day there.
Lots of positives
I enjoyed having the course to myself. The course is a stern challenge, but you can ease it up considerably by playing whites or blues. I gave golds a shot, and with the wind and humidity it played more like 6900 than 6400. Take an extra club, major takeaway for me. Fairways were wet throughout the round, drives and long clubs didn’t roll, produced fairway divots. The starter told me everything was 90 degrees, but cart wouldn’t allow me on the fairway, made for longer round than it needed to be. I’ll play there again, learning experience today.
Nearly Solid Gold
While the design of this enjoyable, well-groomed course is not as flashy as its sister tracks, the Blue Monster or the Red Tiger, there are plenty of challenges, given the numerous bunkers parked in the somewhat-tight fairways and around the greens,. And there is just enough water to swallow an off-kilter drive or fairway shot. The Golden Palm's signature No. 18 hole with island green capped off a delightful, two-and-a-half hour solo trip during which I ran into only an elderly husband-and-wife pair who graciously allowed me to glide through. Deep rough bordered many fairways, which stood tall. Summer showers hardened most of the bunkers, much to my liking, but softened the spongy turf. The slightly-slow, recently-punched greens ran from large and undulating to flattish, thump nail patches. In a week or so, the greens will be in optimum form. Several of the tee boxes were a bit bare and sandy. As with BM and RT, course management and skill with lob shots is a prerequisite to post a good score.I saw beverage attendant only once, because most players were on the other two courses. Pro shop staff, starter, cart attendants, and valet service were first rank, as was Champions Bar & Grill. A commendable deal for $50.
Blue Monster Indeed
Scheduled to play Golden Palm, fortunate to actually play Blue Monster. Due to a weather delay the course was pretty backed up, so we were incredibly lucky to be able to switch off and play the Blue Monster. The course was fantastic! Fairways were well kept and greens rolled true. Give them another couple of weeks and they’ll be immaculate. Great way to start the weekend, an Oban and the Blue Monster!
Friends have told me to go play at Trump International and I never had the chance. Last week I got that chance and what a course! Fantastic! Superb! Challenging! The fairways were immaculate, the rough challenging and the greens were sneaky fast.
The entire Resort is top class, yet the Trump personnel were friendly, courteous and down to earth. If you get a chance to play at Trump International...Just Do It, you will have a great experience!
Perfect day after a week of wet weather
I played a few courses this week and after a prior week of really rainy weather, The Golden Palm Course showed no signs of what many other courses suffered after a lot of rain. I played this course alone in 2HRs and 40 mins and paced myself with 2 groups of 2 a few holes ahead by taking extra mid-iron and chip shots to the green from time to time. ( Yes , even on a few stray Drives)
I liked the course. It was my far the easiest of all the courses I played this week as it is pretty wide open, but a few of the greens have some daunting sloping sides that only end with a wet & lost ball in the water. Worth playing if you can strike a Golfnow special. The staff was okay. Nothing over-the-top. If you are a last minute person and don't have time to warm up beforehand, you will still need to get there 20 minutes ahead of your Tee-time as you have to check in at the entrance gate, park and take a shuttle to the club house , etc. Bring tip money for the RT shuttle and club cleaning service. NOTE: You will pay somewhere between $12 to $20 to self-park !!! Based on how long you parked. I will play here again and its fun to play a wide open , well groomed course that does throw in a few challenges and spectacular views .
Greens are FAST. Not what I am used to, so 3-putting greens happened a lot more than normal. I 3-putted all PAR 3's on account I hit them off the tee-box and could not be any farther away from the cup. Go Figure.
Very challenging course, especially on a windy day. Fairways are wide enough not to get in trouble, except when the water comes in to play. If you can get on the green doesn't keen your ball will stay on it. Challenging greens, often ondulated. Loft to play this course! Would play again, especially when I can get a Hot deal again.
Course in great shape.
Everything about the course was great. However, the golf carts geofencing needs to be corrected, at least the one I had. It shut down automatically when it wasn’t supposed to.
Loud and expensive
Planes and highways make for a noisy round. Conditions very good NOT GREAT. For a premium dollar I expected a little better manicured. Course very playable probably should have played gold tees at my handicap. $20 to park car is ridiculous. I was glad I experienced it once but at $200 I will never again. Under $100 likely.
Course is awesome!!!
Not a bad hole on the course and three or four are really spectacular! Conditioning is great and if you can find a hot deal here, it represents a phenomenal value.
This course lives up to the brand. The fairways are gorgeous, the greens are pristine and slick, the course is in beautiful shape. What a pleasure to play. A very challenging course especially with the wind makes a golfer think the shots through. if a golfer is looking for a test of skill and an amazing golf course this is the perfect combination.
incrdible first experience, worth every penny. TRUMP
