A bit expensive for what you get $350 for 2 including club rentals. Cart paths overgrown with bushes you had to back up. Lots of water. No driving range - you hit into a net... read more

Played January/Feb. 2015. The course is in very poor condition...greens full of poa and weeds..traps are hard pan and also full of weeds..fairway's and droughts are burned out and also full of weeds. Don't look for water on the course until you get back to club house. Club house is a joke...no soda..beer...bottled water..food or golf related supplies. The staff... More

A bit expensive for what you get $350 for 2 including club rentals. Cart paths overgrown with bushes you had to back up. Lots of water. No driving range - you hit into a net. Quite a bit of water though so be sure to have enough balls. Playing once was enough.

Part of our group played there in September 2014. They loved the course. We are travelers from California, specifically Palm Springs area, and we very impressed with the Reef course.

The course was ok, the greens were in great condition. It is run down, so do not expect clear golf paths. There was a clubhouse where you could purchase bottled and canned cold drinks, but there were no golf items, no golf balls, tees, towels etc. OK for the price, and appears to be a place that the locals play...

The Ruby and Emerald were golf courses associated with the Princess Hotel and the mall attached to that hotel. Alas, they are all closed. The golf courses are overrun. The only golf course remaining open are the Reef and Lucayan golf club courses.

Went to play golf here with colleagues on a day off. None of has green cards but this was not an issue here. We rented clubs, golf carts and balls and started playing. Maybe not following etiquette all the time, but here it is not an problem. Due to a large group we only had time to play some holes... More

The last remnant of the once great Princess Resort, this golf course admittedly has seen better days. Amenities are lacking; fairways and rough are dry and under-managed. But looking out over the first hole you understand two things: first, you will not have to wait on every hole because a bunch of delusional duffers are teeing off from the blues... More

The Pros: $65/Person with cart "Lou" one of three staff The Cons: The other staff we're extremely rude "Club House" was a dirty little shack The front 9 was bone dry and dead, even the greens, the back 9 had a little life in it Water/Beer was extremely expensive (Six local beers for $20)

We just played today, the course was in good condition and very reasonable rates ($50 for 18 holes including cart). Staff picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off.
