Twenty seven championship holes await travelers visiting south Florida's scenic beaches. Grand Palms Golf & Country Club in Pembroke Pines also offers three nines: Royal, Sabal and Grand. All three are famous for having some of the best greens in the area, and the golf courses are played in three separate combos. The Grand/Royal 18, designed by Ward Northrup, comes in at 6,881, most of which is blanketed with palm trees and tropical foliage. The longest and most challenging of the Grand Palms' golf courses, Grand/Royal features some especially memorable water holes. A tight layout with raised greens (perfect for testing your shot-making talents), beware the Grand's bunkers, strategically placed along the greensides.

This appears to be a resort course of days gone by. If appearances mean anything the resort / spa has seen better days. However that is not to say that Course is not in good shape. While the fairways could use improvement the greens are excellent and the layout challenging enough I played the Palms and the Sabal and enjoyed them both .

We enjoyed our round. Played with my wife and ladies tees were well positioned. Course was nice and green. Greens were in good shape and rolled well. Played in 4hrs as a twosome. No waiting at all. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Had a flat on our cart and they had one out quickly to replace it. I feel that the price was fair for a nice little course. I try to be honest with these reviews as I read them myself. Although everybody is looking for something different. But had enough of a challenge without being too difficult.

Group of 4 in front of us were probably 20-25 handicaps and were playing the blues. Had to wait on almost every hole. Marshall to check pace of play would help.

Played Grand for the front and then Royal for the back nine. Both had some challenging holes. Windy day makes it much harder. Greens were in great shape. This course is now part of my rotation.

First time playing and it was a solid course/layout. Was told greens were double rolled recently and they were rolling fantastic. Only issue would be some dried out fairways but thats ok. Strongly recommend.

The first time I went there I had to run out at the 8th hole for an emergency, Sean Kicker(Gm) took good care of me and welcomed my brother and I back to finish out the rest of the course. He even met us at the 9th hole to make sure we were taken care of. Great customer service with a beautiful golf course can’t really ask for more. Pace was fine and was easy to find distance with GPS in the golf cart. If you haven’t had a chance to play here definitely try it! Can’t wait to come back!
