I'm not much of a golfer but I came here with friends who wanted to play a few holes. I found this course to be very much below par in more than one criteria. My friends did not find it very appealing... read more »
There are two courses [supposedly champion], one slightly cheaper, the Palms, layout within the outer Pines course [the one with the Greg Norman layout touted]. We played early June so efforts being m... read more »
Played the Pines course mid-week. Not many people so that was great! Really liked the course lay out but some grass was in rough shape. A raccoon took my water cup out of the cart!! Watch out. . Loved... read more »
My wife and I played the Palms course. We had a good time. The greens, fairways, and tees were in great shape. The view was wonderful. My wife is fairly new to golf and she thought the place was really nice. I think we found a new place to play every weekend. Our golf cart died on hole 14. Club house was out there in less than 10 minutes to give us a new cart.
Might have been just me, but I love the new Norman course. The fairways and greens are in great shape right now and the golf course is still challenging to a decent golfer. The other course isnt in the best condition but I still recommend this golf club.
I used to play at the Pines at Pompano Beach Golf Course for years, but after Greg Norman redesigned, and destroyed, the Old Pines Course, there is no reason to go there anymore. The Palms are ok, but not in great shape now. Don't believe me, look at the vacant parking lot that used to be packed all the time. People used to wait in line to play there at 5 am all year round. Now it is empty after the local government powers that be redid the course. If it ain't broke . . . Locals now shy away, and play courses like Colony West or Crystal Lake. The only time Pompano is busy is during the tourist season due solely to the great location, and the tons of tourists down here then. The old Pines Course used to be one of the best layouts in Broward County, but Norman butchered the layout, taking out anything that could be considered challenging, to hasten play above all else, so you get a fast food McDonalds course, except worse, no substance, like cotton candy, or marsh mellow fluff that baits you into trying it, but has no value, and as such, if you like challenging play, you aren't likely to come back. The only thing that keeps the course going after Norman are players who prefer easy courses with few players on them, and the local taxpayers who foot the bill to keep this empty course afloat. Norman took the hips off of Jennifer Lopez and wonders why no one wants to watch the movie. They robbed the course of its natural character, and its tried and true design that had been cut into the land there over the decades; its harsh windblown spirit, almost like a links course in that was so poorly cared for, but yet somehow survived the brutal Florida elements despite its poor upkeep. So men had to kill it. Turnabout is fair play. Whoever the "city planners" were that redesigned and destroyed the old Pompano Course, should be hunted down and beaten savagely. Helen Keller couldn't even enjoy the new layout. What a joke. The government destroyed a local landmark, and encourages to this day, exotic plants to overrun the only large, native, sand pine forest in the area that is akin to the Pines and Cypress trees found on the Monterey Peninsula at the much more famous Pebble Beach Golf Course in California. They had a rare treasure In Pompano, and would have done better with it to pave the course over, and put a parking lot in its place instead. At least they would make some money with a parking lot. Now they lose money, and everyone hates the course. Truly government inaction. Save yourself the trouble, don't go there. I would not even give the "Normanized" course 1 star, but they won't let me post unless I give it at least one star. The course and the management there deserve zero stars for just showing up and destroying a one time local treasure. Any idiot could make a better track out of the new course by changing the tees and greens around back to near what they were before. What a bunch of jerks. I had moved away, and come back to play the New Pines Course 3 years after they redesigned it. And an employee there who recognized me because I had played there every weekend for the 5 years preceding that, immediately asked me if I had played the new layout yet ? I said no, and after I played the course I realized why he knew I had not played the new layout, because I, like everyone else who had played there before, would never go back there again, like a cheap in and out carnival ride. Sad, but a true story. Thousands of people loved that old course, including myself. It was also a busy money maker. Now, it is HUGE LOSER. I would rather get an enima than play there. Norman chokes it again.

Course and staff use to be phenomenal over the years major decline in customer service from pro shop and condition of course. The pines remodel lasted a solid year and a half until that started a decline which is a shame because the Greg Norman team did an outstanding job remodeling it. The palms course is like a cow pasture and the rates charged are ridiculous for such conditions.
