Type Public/Municipal
Par 54
Length 2572 yards
Slope N/A
Rating N/A

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.

Great time in under 3 hours

We drive up from Parkland (about 1 hr) 3-4 times per year. We always have a great time and the course has always been in excellent shape. Sometimes, like this time, the greens are slow. Also, this was the 1st time in many years that it was not windy when we played here. Occasionally, during the season, the pace of play is slow but there are worse places to wait to hit. We always walk and bring our own pushcarts, though they have a lot to rent. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Beautiful scenery and enjoyable golf can be expected.

Hidden gem....

This awesome 18 hole, Par 3 course is a MUST play for anyone in the area. It is a great value for the views alone. Wether you are a beginner or scratch golfer, the course is a good test for golfers of all skill levels. Amazing views of the Intercoastal and Atlantic Ocean, very friendly staff, and overall good course conditions call to play this course if you are visiting the area, or live nearby. I highly recommend this course!

LOVE THIS COURSE

It is a true par 3 course. It is well maintained, sometimes challenging for ME, and beautiful views over the ocean. We usually eat at the restaurant but didn't do this visit, but good food there. A perfect few hours in West Palm!!

Beautiful little Par 3

This is a wonderful little par 3 course. It’s easy to see why golf digest ranked this one of the top par 3 courses in the country. The course is very well-maintained, and the staff is very friendly. There is a terrific little restaurant above the pro shop. This place has it all!

The best par 3 course I've ever played!

What a great layout. Undulating greens, elevation changes, plenty of room on the greens to land your tee shot, magnificent condition. The soft ocean breeze made it very comfortable. Don't forget to take your camera for some unbelievable pictures.

Great Par 3 course with awesome views

Paspalum turf, elevation changes, and great views of the Atlantic and intracoastal Waterway. We played 18 in just over 2 hours. My wife loved the course as it was much easier for her as a beginner. For skilled players, it’s a good test for your iron play and there was a good breeze off the ocean that had to be factored in. The greens are quite undulated making putting a challenge. It’s a good course for a quick round with nice conditions and views. We will definitely be playing again soon.

Beautiful views and challenging holes

The course is in the best shape due to limited play and it’s been maintained nicely. Always a challenge with tight fairways, sand, and water. The views are spectacular and the on site restaurant is excellent.

Beautiful course, excellent par 3

This is a gem of a course sandwiched between the Intercoastal water way and the ocean. You can't beat the views. But it is also a great par 3. Each hole is unique and you use a wider variety of clubs than a typical par 3. It can be challenging even though you aren't pulling out your driver on every hole.

Nestled between the Atlantic ocean and the intracoastal, your bad shots are softened by the beautiful vistas.

We play here whenever we are in the area.

Annual Tradition

We come to West Palm Beach for spring training every year, but always take a day off from baseball to play the Palm Beach Par 3. It’s a fantastic layout, a wonderful staff, spectacular dining experience... doesn’t get any better than this.

One of my favorite Par 3 courses in Florida.

My son and I have been playing here since he was old enough to swing a club. Beautiful course with the ocean on one side and the intercostal on the other. Love that we can play with my father in law and son having a course that challenges all ages. Clubhouse staff is great and do yourself a favor and enjoy the restaurant upstairs over looking the course after your game.

Very fun course

Very good opportunity to practice mid and short irons. The scenery is lovely, especially on the holes with ocean views, and layout is well-done. The staff is friendly and helpful. The onsite restaurant, Al Fresco, is outstanding for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We play this course about once a month and have always had a very good experience.
