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.

Nice scenery but course is wet

Overall very nice but if you go when it had rained the day before it is muddy. Sad they had not a better way to dry it up. I will surely come back during the winter dryer months

Pace of play a nightmare

Our foursome got to the first tee box 3 minutes prior to our tee time and there were 2 foursome waiting to tee off. They must have been walk ins go out or did not have proper seperation on their tee times In addition it started pouring on the second hole and we were forced to leave after 5 holes (which took 90 minutes)

NO RAIN CHECKS

I realize there is a sign posted on the pro shop but nonetheless they should be ashamed with what they charge

Too expensive for the course conditions

The course is in bad shape a lot of mud and standing water.. They don’t allow a one person per cart on the weekends which it is the new rule due to COVID-19. I am not going back

Needs a lot work

I don’t know, maybe it’s been all the rain, and they can’t do the upkeep, but jeez. Not crazy about the layout, lot of small landing zones, lay up shots, water. Some greens had a lot of weeds. 5 inch first cut, couldn’t find your ball. Said GPS on carts shut down for Covid which sounded stupid, just clean the screen between players, I would do anyway. No course map or layout, no 150 sticks. 100, 200 markers covered.. Sorry to be so harsh. It was my fault, I did not read reviews before I booked, guy before was right

Course should have never been open

The 4 star rating intrigued me but I should have known better to go there after some heavy we've had in FL. The bottom line is the course was unplayable and should have never been opened. I played a total of 4 holes; cart path only (which is fine) but even if you parked your cart on the path, you had to go around mini-lakes to get to your ball in the middle of the fairway. I lost 2 balls in the first 2 holes; not because of errant shots but because one was sucked in a mini-pool on the left side of the fairway and the other was plugged "somewhere" just right of the of the fairway. The layout seems interesting but the conditions of this course need to improve and so does the customer service!

Average course

Average course. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the rain has not helped the conditions of the course. Fairways not in good condition and greens need some love. The bunkers are full of rocks. Not good for your clubs.

4 Hr 45 min Round

Individual carts, 8:20 tee time, 10 minute gaps, not utilizing the other 9 holes (27 total on site) and did not see a single ranger to keep pace of player from one of the first 4 groups (the three ahead of us we could played as quick as they could). Absolutely uncalled for and why people don’t play golf anymore. Shame. The course itself is a fun layout and in pretty good shape over all.

27 Holes

I just moved to South Florida and this has been a course I have gone back to in my rotation of discovering what this area has to offer. Overall in great shape, pace of play is fantastic played a round this week in under 3 hours! The greens in some areas could be better but hey it’s summer I get that the course Maybe in tougher shape. If booking on a Tee Deal this course is a steal for the price.

Course needs a lot of help

I loved playing this course many years ago. Seems the condition of this course have been slowly getting worse over time. Some fairways are good others are not. Rough around the greens is awful. I truly hope the conditions improve in the future. Shame that a course which was always fun to play now has second rate conditions and is getting worse.

Bring your own!!

No cart service, no bar, only half empty vending machines. Make sure to bring your own water or cooler with beverages. Also NO GPS... not connected in any cart.

They need to improve in that area.
