2nd review a year later. Last year I spoke with the club manager and he said they really needed $ from the government to get the course in better shape. Played the course 3 times last week and it is in much better shape. A lot more cutting equipment around and it has improved things a lot. Greens are very... More

I don't understand why you have a review from someone who play this course 10 years ago on your website; firstly the reviewer is wrong -this is a great golf course and secondly, over the past 10 years the quality and number of improvements is amazing. The course is arguably one of the most beautiful I have ever played on... More

There is only 2 courses here in Ixtapa/Zhihua, The Marina course and Palma Real. Both charge the same price and the Marina has 2 holes that in very bad shape. Taking a golf cart there is at your own risk! Yep, no brakes. Palma real put in lots of money 2 years ago and have new irrigation system, new sand... More

I arrived few days ago to Ixtapa for a holiday with my family. My wife, son and myself are keen golfers and decided to buy a package of 10 games for about USD 500, i.e. USD 50 per game. The course is very attractive, in excellent conditions and great views. Caddies and management are all very nice and helpful. It... More

Pros: golf Cons: Like most places in ixtapa, this golf course was a gem in its day. However, times have changed. Fairway is at most, ok. Several weeds, unmanicured divots, and abandoned commercial eye sores. Watch out, staff still lives in the "good ole days" and tipping expectations are at an all time high!

Golfed here this morning and to be clear the name of this course is "Campo de Golf Palma Real Ixtapa" I played at the other course near the Marina earlier this week and it was horrible. Palma Real was almost twice as much but 5 times better value and a much better course. My caddy was great, he's been there... More

Played here several rounds this month. Is very possible course was in bad shape last year but now it it is in perfect condition. Both fairwais and greens. Friendly staff. Prices are like Europe or bit less than US but if you consider the quality and the fact that this course is almost empty, it is good value for money.... More

I have been playing this course for 11 years. Total of over 150 rounds. Major improvements this year. The new irrigation installed last year is working well. New sand in all the bunkers is great, and the disposal of some of the old sand on 15 has made a great Crocodile viewing site. The washrooms were clean, well stocked, and... More

The new irrigation system is in and the traps have new sand. The course is in great shape and is being well maintained. The rate for quantity 50 rounds is 870 pesos which includes a cart so get some friends together and enjoy this interesting course. The snack bar is so-so.
