Famous for having some of the best greens in south Florida, Pembroke Pines' Grand Palms Golf & Country Club offers three nine-hole courses: Royal, Sabal and Grand. The three golf courses are played in three separate combos, with the Royal/Sabal coming in at a robust 6,847 yards from the gold tees. The golf course traverses across a landscape of tropical foliage and thick palms, providing both a challenge and a reminder of what south Florida golf has to offer. The Royal/Sabal shines with player-friendly fairways and generous greens.

Grand Palms

The course was in great condition. Pace of playing was good. Lots of water with some narrow fairways made playoffs quite challenging. Fairways and greens were in excellent condition.

A very good value

The golf course is in great condition for this time of year. My only complaint was a lack of sand on the carts to replace divots. neither of our carts had sand. It would be convenient if sand were available on every tee boxe or if the cart sand boxes were filled at the beginning of the day.

Good Value

Good value for the price however, they let too many twosomes out therefore it slows down the pace.

Overbooking

We only got to play 9 holes because they had a tournament going on. We had to stop playing because we had at least 5 carts before us to tee off on our 10th hole. After people complained they offered free range balls, I asked for half of my fees back and they finally credited me 15 per player which is not half of the fees, very disappointed.

Pretty good

A good public coarse. It’s not TPC type quality,, but a nice coarse that tests your ball striking skills. I will play here again. Very good for the price.

staff needs help

Finished playing at 4:00 for a four hour round--group in front got two holes behind but no marshal. No one offered to clean clubs or take them to the front. I went to get the car and my wife asked for help. One person said they had stopped working for the day, another one said they were new and yet another said it was not his job.
Such poor staff support makes you want to play elsewhere even if you pay more and drive farther. So sad

Horrible time

This was the worst I’ve ever seen slow play. There was no Ranger we were almost 1 hour behind the suggested pace of play, the two groups in front of us didn’t care or understand golf etiquette. One of the employees came out and said he talk to them and they’re going to play faster which made them play slower . Everyone in my group had a Home rep it back nine I stop playing at one point because I was getting frustrated.
