Wide fairways and large greens make Palm Hills a very user-friendly course. To offset this there is a fair amount of water to cross as lakes used for irrigation have been blended into the undulating layout. While the greens may be large, they are very slick and difficult to read.
Due to its close proximity to Hua Hin, Palm Hills is very heavily used and as a consequence a round can take around 5 hours to complete in the high season.
