“Be patient and you will enjoy it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This a goverment run golf course so you have to know that you won´t find a fancy pro-shop or the blond sun-tanned golf pro.

However the golf course is really nice, is really clean, well kept and the caddies are really friendly.

Some of the holes are really nice and overall you will have a really nice time.

Try to get there really early on the morning or after 2pm since the weather could be extreme and the probabilities of a sunburn can be really high.

“Great Golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Beautiful challenging course, staff very friendly. Save money and buy 3 games or more if u can. Manager Guillermo is a fantastic guy. They clean your clubs and shoes for a $2 tip when done.

“Cost increases at Palma Real Ixtapa”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My husband and I have been going to Zihuatanejo for the last 14 years. We used to golf almost every day with 2 caddies (benefitting their families and their lives). The last 3 -5 years have seen golf costs go through the roof and as a couple spending two months there it has become too expensive to continue this acitivity. Our caddies and their families are the most amazing people and it breaks my heart that we can no longer continue to help support them through their services at the golf course. We have spoken many times to the management there to no avail - there is nobody on the course half the time and everyone is suffering for it - YEAH for the Government taking charge of this! They are driving tourists away!!

“Updated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Ok the new equipment has arrived. It was used for some time, and the greens are much better. Now what's going on. The heads at fonatur in Mexico city have not provided a budget for gas and diesel to run the machines. So disappointing. Now the tee boxes are like pasture. If they can't pay for gas. Maybe they should get burros. Another pet peeve is that they continually soak the bunkers because of poor irrigation. So either the sand is washed otu or it is wet concrete. I do notice they brought in new sand. But without fixing the irrigation why bother. I get my information from caddy and workers. All of this must be hard for the new gm. He keepsake brave face with no backing from his higher ups

“Expensive!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Be prepared to pay PREMIUM prices for a not so great course. Hole 9 is the only one worth it. Over a lake towards the beach.
