Played the George Fazio Golf Course. Well worth the cost. The greens were a bit slow but putted very true. The course was in good shape and the ball sat up nicely in the fairways.

The Trent Jones course is one of the best courses on the island and the Fazio and Arthur Hills courses are solid tracks as well. They also have an excellent golf accademy. I was struggling with my game and took a lesson with Tim Ashley from Arkansas. It was probably the best single lesson I have ever taken and two... More

My friend and I played recently at both of the Palmetto Hall courses (Cupp and Hills) because they were included in a package deal at my sister's timeshare. These two courses both make for a very enjoyable round of golf. Fairways are wide, but there are enough traps (and some water) to make you think about your shot making. Lots... More

We took golf lessons fro Rod Thompson. He was a great teacher and had my wife, who never played golf before, getting better in a very short time.

We travel to Palmetto Dunes a couple weeks each year for a golf vacation and every time we take clinics and private lessons with Doug. He takes a "green to tee" approach with his teaching, starting with putting, then working up to chipping, pitching and finally full swing. I always heard the expression "14 clubs one swing" before but never... More

If you're looking for something to do with the kids while having your vacation, I strongly recommend taking part in the Little Swingers golf lesson (currently held on Monday afternoons). This was the second year that our son (now 5) took the class with head instructor Doug Weaver and the first for our daughter (3). It was amazing how much... More

Received the two best golf lessons of my life with the head golf professional Doug Weaver this past weekend. One during their "back to basics" clinic, the other an individual lesson. Never has the golf swing made so much sense!

I found these courses in good shape. The staff was polite and helpful. no one rushed us as would happen with a group of 16. All in all I recommend them.
