Beautiful Golf Course

Nice place, very friendly staff, challenging Golf Course. The only drawback is serving lunch only between 13.00 - 17.00.

Played here early Sep and was very disappointed with the overall quality of the course. I have never seen so many pitch marks on greens on any course. two or three of the greens were covered in pine needles which i suppose you would expect on a forest coarse but you would expect then to be blown off a couple...

We are afraid to don’t have reach your expectative.

The cost of the buggies rental is very similar on the different courses on the area. The course is... More

Just behind this golf club there's the beach of Pals which stretches some good 3 kms. As usual, in summer it's hard to find a parking place near it and if you can, expect to pay 2€ for 5 hours...under the sweltering summer sun! When you come back, the oven at home seems cooler than your vehicle! Anyway, supposing you... More

We visited to take advantage of their so called deal at lunch time as it was all we were prepared to pay. It was a grave mistake as we were paired up with a German couple we did not know and could not converse with. We were hassled around the very crowded course by marshals and had the distinct impression... More

We were trying to reach the beach after a visit to Pals, this was impossible. It was very busy and we had to drive for half and didn't succeed.

I arrived on Friday at noon to find a "Happy Hour" Special. For 75E, I played 9 holes with Callaway rental clubs and a manual cart. The course is mostly straight and fairly easy to walk. The ambience is generally good but there are no views of the sea or the beaches. I missed the morning rush so the course... More

Thank you for your comment. Effectively the Golf Course is open since 1966. Next year we will celebrate our 50th Anniversary. As all the course is build amongst an immense pine grove the players can always find a little of shadow. The perfect course to play in a summer day. Maite Aliu Sales Manager More

It is the different golf course. Almost every holes are very tight, because of pinetrees. The fairways is going among pineforest and if you hit a little to the side of the fairway yoy have difficulties. Only4 - 5 holes are little easier and you have space to hit. The course is very old and it is always in good... More

Platja de Pals is one of the oldest but also most pleasant courses in the area. The greens suffer a little from all the summer tourists & the course can get quite busy particularly on Saturdays
