Palmas Athletic Club (Flamboyan course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

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.
