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.

I booked the tee time the day before we played and it looked wide open with 4 consecutive available tee times on GolfNow. There was no indication that there is a women’s league that plays every Thursday morning. The pace was quite slow with 2-3 foursomes waiting on several holes. Not sure why it shows such great availability on golfnow. Was not very enjoyable.

Played there before and must say the course is in better condition than past years. A wide range of tee-off boxes for different skill levels. Starters are great and friendly. Cannot say the same for the staff at the pro shop. They did not know how to handle booking from Golf Now and seem not appreciative of our business.

Will go again but not because of the pro shop staff.

Thank you for the review, we appreciate the feedback regarding the course and any pro shop issues. Sometimes there is issues deciphering GolfNow trade times from regular GolfNow tee times. We apologize if you felt like your business was not appreciated as this is not the case. Thank you for coming out and we hope to see you again in the near future.

Course was in great shape, got it as a hot deal, worth the money, may not be worth the non hot deal price. Play with 3 long time friends that haven't seen in awhile, had great time reminiscing about old times. Still finished in 3 hours 45 minutes. teed of at 11:22.
