Boca Raton Municipal Golf Course boasts a championship course as well as a nine-hole Executive Course. The Championship Course is challenging but playable thanks to four sets of diverse tees. The rolling landscape is dotted with lakes and mature trees that provide challenges throughout. The fairways are wide but they are bordered by a thick cut of rough and strategically placed bunkers surround the fast greens. There are also a few holes that feature hidden water hazards for added difficulty. The layout offers a number of tricky holes but overall it is a very player-friendly golf course. For less experienced players or for those looking for a quick round, the Executive Course is an excellent option that can be played in less than 90 minutes and there is also a driving range and putting and chipping greens.

Easy, grip-and-rip track was in splendid overall shape as I zipped through the front nine, thanks to a pair of twosomes polite enough to allow me to play through. On the back nine, I joined a very pleasant couple from Sweden and the good times kept rolling as fast as the greens. As usual for morning weekday rounds in the summer, there was no beverage cart, but the homey snack bar served up a very tasty chicken salad sandwich. Pro shop staff, cart attendant and starter were cordial and efficient. The $28 fee was worth the price. Hot Deals under $20 would be absolute steal for a fun, municipal course that, unfortunately, will be going under the development knife in about a year.

The course is in excellent shape especially around the greens. Layout was simple and easy to get around. Only downside was one of the rangers. He was extremely rude. He even rudely told my partner “don’t walk away when i’m talking to you” as my friend proceeded to use his range finder to accelerate our pace of play. Other than that i would play this course again.

This is a well-maintained municipal course and is in excellent condition. It is not well run. While there is a posted pace of play policy, management acknowledges that they don't enforce it. That made for a painfully slow round. Not the first time. At a time when golf is badmouthed for being an all-day event, this course is part of the problem.

Course will close next year but you wouldn't know it.

For the money, it beats any other course around.

Fairways and greens are great. They let a couple of singles out behind our foursome, they should couple them up as we felt we had to let them play through.

Even our spouses loved the course !!

Been to this course many times. Had some irregularities with Tee time. Received multiple confirmations for different Tee times. Pro-shop staff were very slow checking people in. We waited 20 minutes with no one on the first Tee while starter fumbled. 6 holes in, Ranger told us we were 3 holes behind. Explained there were 3 holes open when we started. He seemed confused and this continued every few holes until we finished in 4 hrs 10 minutes including a stop for sandwiches at turn and Ranger holding us up repeatedly. Never pushed by a group behind us. Clueless Ranger diminished round. Pleasant predictable course, staff needs new blood.
