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.

Palm Beach Par 3

My husband and I enjoyed our round of golf today at this course. It was crowded but the pace of play was good. This course is so well located with views of Intercostal Waterway on front 9 and lovely ocean views on back 9. The course allows you to focus on your short game in a lovely location. I would play here again on a future trip to this area.

Not worth the $$$$$

Fun, short par 3 executive course you need to play at least once but not worth the money they charge. You can play a regular 18 hole course for the same price.
But like the person said, " this is Palm Beach you know" & like Steve Martin has said - "well, excuuuse me."

Love the holes along the Intracoastal and the ocean. My guests enjoy the views as a bonus to a fun golf outing.

Play on the ocean

This par 3 is located between the ocean and intercoastal. Beautiful views. Challenging holes. Great please to work on your irom game and have a great lunch. Depending on your tee selection you can hit a fairwood to wedge. The greens are quit slow, not a place to work on your putting. That is the only drawback when playing the beautifully located Par 3.

A beautiful little par 3 course along the coast in Palm Beach

What a fun, quick round of golf! 18 beautiful, fun par 3 holes running beside the Atlantic Ocean beach and the Intracoastal. I played the longest tees. Holes ranged from 65 yards to 190 yards, most in the 120 to 140 range. Conditions were very good. But the type of grass on the greens is unfamiliar to me and I struggled to get the speed right.. Very grainy and on the slow side. I am a 13 handicap and shot 7 over, so I guess it is pretty easy (or I had a good day.). My wife is a beginner and she loved it. No hole was too long or too hard for her. Played in under 2.5 hours, even after letting a couple of faster groups play through. Afterwards, we had a very nice lunch at the restaurant upstairs from the pro shop. Al Fresco I think the name was. It is a pretty fancy place, actually, with excellent service. I think most of the folks having lunch came just for the restaurant. It was a little expensive for a relatively simple lunch ($58) but we sat outside looking over the course and the ocean, with a nice breeze, so it was very enjoyable.

Wonderful Quick Walk

I squeezed a quick 18 holes in on a early November morning...I think I teed off at 7:40 and was done around 9:30 (probably taking my time too). Its a great place to play and not take anything too serious. I played the middle tees and never hit anything more than a 9 iron. Great views, especially when you get to 13 tee box. Okay conditions, but you're there mostly for the views. Would recommend!

Nice course and restaurant

Very well maintained par 3 course. This course is usually windy as it’s situated between the ocean and IC waterway. Can be challenging with narrow fairways but very pretty.
Good food at Al Fresco restaurant as well!
