Fun course that I played two days in a row on December 31 and January 1. I really enjoyed the course, but found that it plays longer than I expected. I would recommend that you look at the score card and pick your tee box, and then move up one box.. Because I enjoyed playing Palmila Beach so much the first day, I played a second day as well. Well worth the trip.

Not a ton of ocean views, but you know you are seaside. Variable breezes make club and line selection challenging. You'll probably have to play more than once to play it well, but it's fun every time. Course conditions are great tee to green. Consider a forward tee - the wind and green complexes are challenging enough, and driver is not always the best play. Can't wait to play it again.

Course plays long. We played blue tees which is a challenge to average length hitters. It demands long and straight off the tee but is rewarding to make par on this course.

Course if pretty good for the $$$. However, make sure range is open because it is a challenge, especially if you don't get a good warm up. Also, make sure to bring plenty of bug spray.

Great golf course. I played from the gold tees and it was much more enjoyable as I had tried the whites and for a twenty handicapper it was too challenging. The staff and.ground crews were very nice and accommodating. I like to play by myself and only was paired with someone else one time out of seven for the whole week we were there.l will definitely be going back. Beautiful greens and aprons.

Played with hot deal arrangement. Otherwise no value for your money.<br/> Course is in between the dunes.<br/> The lay out is very close to a course in Scotland/Ireland.<br/> Lay out is very narrow, rough is everywhere, take enough balls with you.

Great course. Especially when using a hot deal. There were a few spots on the fairways but for the most part it was in excellent condition. Greens were very consistent. The price is kinda steep for twighlight but if you can get a Hot Deal, it's well worth it. The driving range is very nice and staff is very accomodating. They even have towels in ice chests to cool you off at certain holes. Perfect for an August day.

I have played a few links style courses and this one must be on steroids! Being in July, it was obviously quite warm. I am from just north of Galveston so I am used to the heat / humidity. There was a nice breeze which really adds to the excitement to the course. I really like the greens and fairways - the grass is like Moody Gardens in Galveston which is tolerant to salt water. There were a few spots on the fairways where the mowers must have cut it a little too close.

This course was VERY enjoyable to play. The greens were in great condition. The fairways were a bit tight and quite challenging. It's tough to beat the setting with the ocean in the background. I assumed this would be a great course and it still exceeded my expectations. Incredible value. I look forward to playing again soon.
