“Great course, great views, and comfortable to play”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I have been on other golf courses that seem to hold their nose up to visitors, but Palmer was a joy. It has that Texas charm that makes you feel welcome. The course is just fantastic and some very unique holes. There are actually two courses and I had a chance to play both. The course can be challenging but is very playable. I was there only a week after a tournament so the greens were extremely fast, which inflated my score (that is my story and I am sticking to it). After playng, stopped at the restaurant to eat. It is very reasonable and great food. I did not stay at the Westin, but the place is very well kept. Everything about this place was really well done.

If your a golf enthusiast, you have to play here. If you are a duffer, you will enjoy this course a lot just for the beauty.

“Glad I went”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Stayed at the Westin affiliated with the course. I decided to go play nine holes while my wife was in her conference. I am so glad I did.

Very nice course for golfers of any skill. I played from the silver tees and it was challenging but still enjoyable. Nice elevation changes which give you great views from almost every hole.

“Awesome”

Incredible shape...incredible elevation changes and a wonderful clubhouse. This is one of my favorite golf courses I have ever played. Arnie has a good one here that lives up to the legend.

“Surprise surprise”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went by accident and was more than pleasantly surprised. Great service. Really good lite lunches consisting of a bunch of salads with salmon, chicken and other stuff. The view over the golf course ain't bad either. No need for reservations because there weren't a lot of people it gosh, what a bargain.

“March 2013-Awesome golf!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Absolutely one of the best golf experiences outside of Vegas. Very reasonable rates, incredibly beautiful, course was more than challenging but not one of those courses that no matter how good of a shot you make you end up in trouble. Was in very good shape, you could tell it was a resort course in the fairways but greens where very well taken care of. Both courses were very enjoyable.....if you can get a round in make it happen!
