Palm Beach Golf Course is an enjoyable par-3 course that offers a round that is as good as a championship course. It is one of the top-rated par-3 courses in the country. The innovative Paspalum turf that is used throughout the course is both drought and saltwater-tolerant, guaranteeing lush green conditions no matter what. The course has a rolling terrain, offering curves and elevations that provide scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Almost every hole on the golf course enjoys beautiful scenery but being sandwiched between the ocean and the Intracoastal, there are treacherous breezes that can affect your game. The layout starts on the beach and then moves along the Intracoastal. The sandy dunes on the beach provide the course with some interesting challenges. It is an excellent place to hone your short game skills.

Fun Course

Great wee course to challenge your ball striking skills. It was windy and brisk, but we had the course to ourselves. You needed to ride the wind or stay under it so you needed both shots. Greens and fairways in excellent shape.

Beautiful course, a pleasure to play

Course right between the Intercoastal and the ocean with lakes as well. Lots of nice views. Play is recreational and slow. Use of seaside grass makes the course conditions possible but makes the greens very slow.

Inside staff had difficulty with the GolfNow transaction, outside staff was great.

Overated restaurant upstairs but no easy place to get a quick drink or snack.

Excellent par-3 course with great views

Excellent course for practicing short irons and for short game. Great ocean front views. Course layout good; some are uphill and some downhill. Route A1A is a scenic route. There is a nice restaurant above the pro shop. I didn’t eat there.

Great course.....!!

This course is one of the best around.....even though it’s a par 3 facility. I gave it 3 stars for course conditions and value because I been playing there this year about once a week. Everytime I’m there there’s usually a major maintenance project going on. One week it was punching and sanding greens. The maintenance guy was literally following me around the front 9 as he had already punched and sanded the greens. Another week was a major tree trimming project in which they had bucket trucks literally on the course blocking several holes at a time. Yesterday they were tearing up the middle set of tee boxes. This was on every hole. The frustrating part is that non of these major work projects are never mentioned on Golf Now or when you check in at the pro shop.....you don’t know until you’re on the course after paying a FULL Price Greens Fee and having to play partial holes. It’s a great course and a challenge under normal conditions. Thank you for allowing me to voice my concerns.

First timer

My wife and I, amateurs, played this course for first time and we’re very pleased. The view was amazing and course layout was super and challenging. Our only disappointment was the repairing of the tees which occurs when upgrades are beneficial. Complements to entire staff, very helpful and courteous. Looking forward to playing there again.

Absolutely AWESOME

First time here, had the first Tee time (7:10am )

It was a beautiful morning and just got better as we played.Front nine is mostly played by the inter coastal water, somewhat tricky maybe challenging is a better word, BUT then came the back nine and in over 50 years of playing this game I truly can say I had my breath taken away,

Each hole seemed more beautiful, more breathtaking and more challenging than the last.The wind off the Atlantic Ocean was blowing hard and you had to really be careful of club selection. It was a fantastic experience!!!

Fun and fast

Well maintained. Quite playable yet offers several challenging shots. Greens present many slopes but could use a slightly closer cut. Highly recommend.
