Review: My overall experience with Palmetto Hills was HORRIBLE. Safety was obviously not a priority, not even a secondary. When we arrived we paid the prices which if i might add were extremely reasonable, $7 for field fee and $6air along with paint that was priced good. After we paid we received no safety briefing or any clue to getting one. As we were gearing up we noticed NO ONE had barrel bags. Odd? And the referees were not enforcing it as we clearly watched roughly 40 kids along with a decent amount of regulars walk around throughout the day without any signs of barrel plugs with a referee tagging along at the back. Along with no barrel plugs we watched people walk up and down the road shooting air and paintballs into random directions with no mask on. To top it off when we went to play in the woods field there were people walking around on the field WHILE THE GAME WAS GOING ON with their masks off. I'm not talking about 50-100 feet, I'm talking 5-10 feet. And if you think thats bad the referees which were roughly 30 feet away were watching them play.. with no mask on. I said don't you think they should put there masks on and the referee yelled once for them to put there masks on but never did anything about it as they continued to be maskless.
I expect this kind of behavior from newbies but defiantly not the regulars and most importantly the referees who were the most unmotivated referees I have ever seen.
On the brighter side the speedball field was properly maintained and ran like it should of been. I only found 3 staff members that were helpful, the young man who ran our speedball games (not the one who left us and went to KFC), Fran?(I believe thats her name) and the other man in the shop that was helping her.

I WILL NOT be coming back here again or any other time in the future. This field is far from being safe in my eyes along with this being one of the worst, if not the worst paintball experiences I have ever had.

If you do decide to go please use caution.
