This course has only nine holes and with that, four of the holes are par 3s with no par 5s in the layout. The course is in great condition tough and the staff is so accommodating. I had a good time!
Palmilla in the wind
Course is in great condition. Fairways are great. Greens are great, roll true. They have a couple that need a little help with brown spots but still great. Course layout is great with the wind basically coming across on six holes. Two holes into the wind and one down wind typically. Very challenging despite short overall yardage. Worth playing.
course is in great shape. that’s the only good part
if you enjoy being stuck behind retiree hackers or jerks that wait for green to clear because they think they can drive the green from 300+ yards out then steer clear
Nice course. Too windy. No protection My wife and I both have a GPS. Her's found the course, mine did not. First time ever for that.
Fun course near the ocean
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.
Fun oceanside course
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 Customer Service
The staff was friendly from the moment we stepped out of our car. My fiancé came with me and they were more than helpful letting her ride along without an additional charge. Exceptional! Will be back!
Seniors play gold
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.
green fairways, fast greens, what more could you ask for?
Friendly staff, good pace and the course is in very good condition.
Fantastic course !! Great course layout and course conditions . True beach style course .
I was able to book this course through a golf now deal for $30, simply put there is no better value. Highly recommend this course for anyone, while a difficult test the course condition and setting make it a memorable event.
Extremly hot in between the dunes
Played with hot deal arrangement. Otherwise no value for your money.
Course is in between the dunes.
The lay out is very close to a course in Scotland/Ireland.
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.
Could. Be Better
Fairways were rough. Greens were good. Sand not raked. It's been better in the past.
