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.

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.

Off and on rain at a course we have played several times. Restaurant has changed with new menu and inside staff is very good. Food was good. Outdoor staff, the last several times, acts if you are not there. No direction, communication or assistance with clubs after the round. Not even a thank you for playing or have a nice day.

A staff member (Susan) was courteous and professional. After checking me in and finding out it was my first time playing there. She took the time to explain all i needed to know. Moreover, she delivered a new cart to me out on the course when the GPS stopped working on my cart. I played there again the next day and she was not working. I mention this as the gentleman in the pro shop this day was not helpful. He was condescending when I had a concern and asked for help.

Grand Palms Resort Golf Course could be considered best golfing outing values option west of Fort Lauderdale , the three 9 holes courses give you a good set of potential playing holes combination. Courses are in fair condition. Good staff service , in house pro-shop and good playing speed decipline.

Best Value and Good option for weekend warriors and business visitors in town.

Took my father in law and dad to play the grand and royal courses. Great time, course was beautiful, greens a little sandy but let’s chalk that up to reseeding after a busy winter season. There’s only one hole (#6 or 7) where the fairway runs parallel to a major road and a slight slice can have the potential to put your ball in the passenger seat of an unsuspecting driver. Other than that, it’s a perfect course. Will definitely be back to play the other 9 and replay one of the first two mentioned (minus the street hole).

We enjoyed our round. The course is coming along nicely. Grass is greening up. Overseeded areas are growing well. Greens were a little slow but true and green. Much better management then most at keeping the lazy slobs from driving their golf carts right up to the greens. They actually had ropes and signs. Really nice people running the place. The only negative was one of the players left his wallet in a golf cart. It was found and turned into management. But when the player went to claim his wallet, it couldn't be found along with a large sum of cash, all missing. Really??!!. At present, management still has not made it good. And the player is a long term member there. Management needs to Man Up. There is definitly a thief within the employees.
