Southwinds Golf Course
Situated just minutes from the Gold Coast beaches in the heart of Boca Raton, Southwinds Golf Course enjoys warm ocean breezes and lush vegetation. Water is a prominent presence throughout the course. Water hazards come into play on 16 holes. There are also mature trees throughout that will play a deciding role in shaping your shots. The golf course offers some enjoyably difficult holes but overall the challenges are manageable. Each hole is unique offering everything from opportunities to "grip it and rip it" and others that are defined by trees and lakes. The golf course finishes with one of its many water holes but on this par 4, you have to hit over water twice. In addition to the golf course, Southwinds also offers a driving range a putting green with a practice bunker.

Only played nine holes while here on vacation. The course is a typical Florida course, but it’s on the shorter side. Good course conditions.
Thank you so much for stopping by on your vacation. We hope that next time you're in the area you will have time to play all 18.
Finally got to play here
I've heard nothing but good things about Southwinds and finally got to play it myself. As everyone knows it is definitely on the short side but that was by no means made it easy. A straight tee shot will leave you with a PW or SW into the greens. The greens were just punched so they did run a bit slow. The force carry or lay up holes were the best on the course that provided the most challenge. Pace of lay became extremely slow on the back 9 even for a Saturday afternoon round, Would of liked to of seen a Ranger out and about get on the group in front of us that were maybe a little to wasted and were just hacking up the course. The bar had 2 dollar draft beers which is always a plus. Will be back soon!
We're glad to hear that we were able to live up to the "hype." Thanks so much for coming out to play and for leaving such a great review. We very much look forward to seeing you again soon.
1st time here. Greens were nice. Recently aerated, but almost fully healed. Bah had a few bumps, but thats fine. Greens rolled good.
Tee boxes were in good shape.
Only thing I am not fond of was the layout. Its "open", but weird. Course is somewhat barren. Not many trees. 16 with the driving range net there was ugly.
Would I go back.....on a $17 hot deal yes! Doubt I ever would pay a penny more.
We played the tips (6000 yards)....dont be fooled by the length or lack-of, it is a hard course that demands accuracy.
Lots of forced carries over water will reward you with short wedges to the green. Lay up and its 165+ yards to the green.
You hit the nail on the head... we're not the longest course in town, but you must think your way around to post a good score. Our only suggestion would be to check pbcgolf.com when booking so you can avoid paying any booking fees; during the summer months our rates are extremely affordable. Thanks again and we will see you again soon.
A truly enjoyable golf course!
This is a great little course. It has a fun layout. Great condition of greens, bunkers and tees. Not long but still challenging as you truly have to position your ball in the right place to go to the green.
I always come out smiling. Probably one of the best values in South Florida.
What a fantastic review! You hit the nail right on the head with everything you've said and we can't thank you enough for your continued support!
I Love Southwinds!
Longer than an Executive Course but shorter than many Championship Courses. Like the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, sometimes that's just right!
Good and Caring Staff at Bag Drop, Office, and Lounge Area.
Course Conditions are often a step ahead of other courses in the area.
I played 3 consecutive days last week with this being my 3rd and last for a couple of days. Being a bit tired from the 2 previous days playing longer Championship Courses made playing here on the 3rd day the obvious choice.
I will continue to play here regularly.
Recently played a round at Southwinds. Interesting and challenging layout.
Some holes require a planned layup or a long carry!
Southwinds may not be the longest golf course in Palm Beach County, but it sure will make you think the whole way around. Turing your brain off for even one shot can cost you. Having said that, if you play the course properly, you can really go low.
Nothing special. Conditions are never really optimal. This is a county course and plays like one. Older slower paced crowd. That said for the money it’s not a bad place to practice. Scoring doesn’t really matter after your ball hits a tree root in the fairway and bounces wherever. It’s also short and an easy walk.
Michael, we appreciate you leaving a review. While we may not be the longest track around, we pride ourselves on delivering the best conditions possible, and we find your tip about it being an easy walk a good one. We hope to see you again soon!
Excellent course and layout. Friendly staff. A few tough holes, particularly the 18th, but it's all good.
Wow, thanks for the five-star review! Hopefully the 18th didn't cost you too many strokes and you figured out how to play it for next time. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Topn10 in area
I like this course. Good layout, challenging yet not extreme. Good condition overall. Always enjoy playing here. One of the better courses in the area. Well worth playing.
Course is always in good shape. Love the layout.
Except for the 30 mph winds, it was a beautiful day.
We'll do our best to get the winds turned down during your next round. ;) Thanks for the review!
Nice Course - Great Value
Good course management is a must. Greens in great condition.
Bingo! While Southwinds isn't the longest course in town, it will make you think all the way around ... and the greens are always solid. Thanks for the review!
For the price this is an excellent course. The greens were outstanding.
That's what we love to hear! Thank you for making the journey up from Deerfield to check us out.
Southwinds great Golf
Any day out on the course is a great day South winds is an excellent day course to enjoy an outing
Thanks so much for coming out and for the five-star review!
Not a bad course.
This is not a bad course for what I paid. The course is shot compare to other courses ( 5,900 yards). It is challenging with water on every hole except one. I would play there more often if it was not to far from my house (50 minutes).
You hit the nail on the head. Southwinds isn't the longest course in town, but it will make you think all the way around and the greens are always solid. Thanks for making the close to an hour drive to spend the day with us. If we could move the course closer to you we would! ;)
Very good for the price
Playing from the good, was a good challenge. Green in good condition
We're glad to hear you found the course to be in good shape and that you enjoyed your day with us. Come back and see us again soon!
Rained Out after the 14th
Fun course for practicing. It is short but by no means easy. Enjoyed it. If it didn't rain I would have enjoyed it more.
As you said, we're not the longest track in town but we will make you think all the way around. We will do the anti-rain dance next time we see you on the tee sheet!
