Type Resort
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.

Good Course

I have not played Grand Palms in a long time and it appears as if there has been an actual upgrade to the course and staff. Well done. Keep up the great service.

Not So Grand....

Located next to a run-down hotel and an overpriced restaurant, this crazy-quilt, 27-hole labyrinth snakes it way through and around upscale homes, lakes, and canals. Some courses overlap each other. The fairways, tees, and greens were in generally good shape, but the mix of different types on grass in the rough provided a strong challenge around the greens. Poorly maintained bunkers were strategically placed along the fairways and around greens. I started out a pleasant, 2 1/2 hour solo round on the tight, water-laden Grand, which required sharp shot management on several holes. The Royal was less demanding, but featured a quirky, dog leg Par 5 that made a 90-degree turn around a row of houses. Oddball layouts offered disjointed golf experience from course to course. Pro shop staffer was polite, but cart attendants were less attentive. As usual in the summer, there was no beverage cart and only few water stations on the course. And unless you are into apathetic female bartenders and $6 Heinekens, skip the restaurant. Not a deal for $25.

Wet course, but fun.

The course was cart path only because of all the recent rain. It also has a lot of water hazards that are well placed to gobble up golf balls so bring your A game.
