Paradise Palms Resort & Country Club: GOLF COURSE CLOSED IN MID-2019, pending planning application to transform it into a residential housing development. It is unlikely the course will reopen.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Paradise Palms is home to a well-rated and always popular golf course. This tree-lined and open parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Stay & Play at Paradise Palms: onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Who can play and when?
