Palmas Athletic Club (Palm course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1974

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 Palm course is a well-rated and always popular layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course 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.
