Palmas Athletic Club (Flamboyan course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1998

Palmas Athletic Club (formerly Palmas del Mar Country Club) is home to two excellent championship courses. The Gary Player designed Palm course opened for play in 1974. It was followed 24 years later by the highly-acclaimed Flamboyan course, designed by Rees Jones.

The Flamboyan course is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in Puerto Rico. The excellent open parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
