The second nine flows up and down through with precision far more critical than power. The par five 15th hole has a breathtaking view and a vertical drop of 114 feet. From the front side challenge of sparkling lakes and Palm tree-lined fairways to the back nine thrilled ride of elevated tees playing over deep arroyos and canyons, you'll enjoy the richness of the Palms course while being surrounded by southwest desert and mountain serenity.
