Since opening in 1989, Palm Valley Golf Club has become a favorite among locals for the extremely affordable rates and enjoyable round. Surrounded by acres of horse farms in the heart of Nocatee, the golf course offers an idyllic and relaxing game. The nine-hole layout consists of two par 4s and seven par 3s. The golf course is ideal for beginners or for golfers looking for a casual round, but don't be mistaken: It is not a simple pitch-and-putt. Palm Valley Golf Club features well manicured target greens bordered by sand bunkers and water comes into play throughout. In addition to the golf course, Palm Valley also offers a 10,000-square-foot putting green, the largest in the area.

A Jacksonville area course you're allowed to walk for a change

Ever since moving to the Jacksonville area I have found it hard pressed to locate a course that you could walk as a standard. Palm Valley fills the bill there. Granted, this is an executive course but don't be fooled. There is a lot of water that comes into play and some of the holes are a bit tight width-wise. The greens are recovering from a very wet June so they are spotty. No different than some of the 18-hole courses in the area. That comes with the territory. Pace of play for a single is right around an hour if the course isn't busy. It is a great place for beginners so be prepared.

Solid Executive course, first time playng the course

As with most PAR 3/Executive courses, Palm Valley works for those whose games are not at the level to fully enjoy a full length regulation golf course. Fairways and tee boxes are in great condition whereas the greens require attention but this venue worked great for taking out two folks who had never played golf at any level other than at the driving range and putt putt golf. Was an enjoyable experience for all.

Fun course.

Nice little nine hole course. Holes are a little close to each other but course was fun, well maintained, and a great value. Took my son who does not play very often.

Short course for short game

The manager wasn't keen on the golfnow reservation-made me contact them to confirm I had completely paid on-line-not good for business.

Charming 9-hole par 29

Short par 29. Most challenging hole is the third, 265yard par 4 that's about 10 yards wide, with water in front of green. Hole 4 is a 215yard "par4", outside of that, pretty straight forward par 3s under 150 yards. Great course to go work on your accuracy and scoring. Overall the course is in pretty good shape, especially around the greens. Seven of the greens were mostly poe annua, which is fine this time of year if cut tight. They rolled surprisingly well outside of some bare spots. Great course for beginners. Has challenges large and small ie. water, bunkers, undulations. Very target oriented with lots of little trouble lurking such as bushes, shrubs, flower beds. Looked like a pretty good driving range and the putting green was pristine. All-in-all you cant really complain. I played it twice in less than 1.5 hours, shot it even. I'm looking forward to playing it again with some friends and family who are just picking up the game.

Good course for short game work. Greens need work.

This nine hole par 3 course is an enjoyable experience. Water comes into play on all holes, bring a few extra balls! There is a driving range and a fair size practice green. Rental clubs available. Staff is friendly, and they have a "guard cat" for security.
