Red Reef Park Executive Course is located between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. It is an executive, nine-hole layout that offers holes ranging in length from 54 yards to 227 yards. Opened in 1957, the golf course has a classic design. In 2001, the tees, fairways, and greens, were converted to the more environmentally friendly Seashore Paspalum, which also provides excellent putting surfaces. Long hitters will be out of luck here but there are plenty of opportunities for short game practice. The golf course begins with the Intracoastal Waterway as your backdrop and you finish on the scenic dunes of Red Reef. Mature trees frame many of the holes. It is geared more towards beginning to intermediate players but it is great for a quick round for more advanced players.

Easy but fun. Great for beginners or for those that want to play a quick round. Course was in super condition with the greens just a little slow. Wonderful ocean views.

Great little 9 hole executive on the ocean in Boca Raton. Other than 8th green, course was in very good condition. I highly recommend this for a quick round.

Once the staff knew we purchased our golf from Golfnow.com, they were rude and dismissive. Both attendants at the pro shop. Also, there was no clear sign at the parking for Red Reef stating if you are golfing, the parking is payed for from the golf shop. We went ahead a prepaid and then found out. They were rude about that as well and stated they have problems all the time with Golfnow.com

Never again.

Felt like we were playing in the Caribbean with water being on the first six holes and the Atlantic ocean on the last three holes.

Spoke to John who said green fees are $25.00 for 9 holes but another $9.00 to go around twice, i.e. 18 holes. $34.00 plus tax, for a little public course, is pretty expensive.<br/> Great location, fun course anyway.
