Type Public/Municipal
Delray Beach Golf Club is the championship sister course to the executive Lakeview Golf Club, which is located less than a mile away. It is also less than three miles from downtown Delray Beach. Opened in 1926, Donald Ross designed the layout and over the years, touring professionals on their way to Miami have made it a habit to stop and play the classic design. Its still-growing popularity is a testament to the quality of the round. It provides a quick round that can be played in just over 4 hours but it still offers enough challenges for low handicappers. There is very little water coming into play but with the strategic bunkering that is abundant throughout the course, water features will hardly be missed. The club also has a reputation for being one of the most well maintained public courses in the area as well.

The course is layed out extremely well. Wide fairways allow you to keep the ball in play. Fairways are in average shape but allowing to "roll ball" helps. Greens roll well but are spotty with weeds. Extremely good deal for price.

Not in good condition

Overall disappointing condition. If the city would allocate more funds for the maintenance of this course it would be a pleasure to return over and over again to play. Maybe less funds for the tennis center downtown and a little more for the golf course.

Keep It In The Middle

Once a Donald Ross nine-holer, this rugged throwback track expanded to 18 holes in 1950 and has since become an afterthought to nearby, better-conditioned courses. With dark clouds hovering, throughout, my playing partner and I sped through a pleasant round trying to avoid rain and a brutal rough framing fairways that were in fair condition. The greens had recently been sanded, but unexpectedly ran fast and true. Bunkers were hickory hard. While the front nine played a bit tougher than the Ross back nine, the overall design was not too challenging, unless the tee shot found the rough. A new course super is working hard to restore course conditions. There was no beverage cart service. Pro shop and cart attendant were polite and attentive. A cozy bar provided a nice refuge from deluge that hit the course as we finished. The $14 hot deal was worth the price, but would not play if fee were more than $20.

Can’t beat $10.00 on GolfNow.com

Can not argue with a $10.00 price for 18 holes with cart! However, bar was slow to get beers and a cooler. Also, no beverage girl on the course. Further, there was NO WATER at any of the holes! But, at the 2 bathrooms, you could get water at a fountain.

Yes! I would definitely play this course again! Can’t beat $10.00 on Golf Now!

Never again

Have played this course many time and have generally been pleased , but this trip was somewhat awful

Got off to an ok start and we were keeping up pace of play pretty , the group behind us never waited long but seeing them in the pro shop on check in I could tell they were regulars / member type and on leagues at this course and I guess they felt they were privileged and should not have to wait at all so they must have called a buddy that works there and had him come out a basically yell at us and I mean yell , not polite at all.

If this is the way the staff treats paying patrons I won’t no part of this course.

Not only that there were many tee boxes in very rough shape that were almost all sand.

So that being said take your chances that you aren’t in front of the privileged.

With so may golf course in the area you would think they should be trying to get repeat players not run them off
