Park Ridge Golf Course
Park Ridge Golf Course transformed what was formerly the site of the Lantana Landfill into a popular municipal course. Construction began on this unique undertaking in 2004 and the end result was certified by Audubon International as a Cooperative Sanctuary. The course climbs up to 85 feet, making it one of the highest golf courses in the county. It has a links-style layout that rolls across a variety of elevation changes, offering plenty of stunning views along the way. Such a contoured and hilly course is a rare occurrence in Florida. The golf course provides a challenge with some very tricky par 3s, several blind shots due to the rolling terrain, and strategically placed traps throughout but there are no water hazards except for one lateral hazard. There is also thick rough framing many of the holes.

Nice public course
Course is in good condition. Greens are pretty fast.
The course is challenging, with trouble on virtually every hole. In most cases it's tall grass that frames the fairway.
Okeeheelee is probably a better value- more scenic, more forgiving, and about the same or less cost.
This is the only course in S. Florida with hills and the managers are doing a great job keeping the course up with all of the winter play. There is plenty of staff and they are very friendly and courteous. You will not find another course like this in South Florida.
(even though I did not play very well).
We played the 9 for 9 special.
This gem has a terrific layout, with a number of blind shots and pretty narrow fairways in spots. The greens were pretty quick and the fairways were in good shape. It was a breezy day, which certainly affected shot selection, but kept the temperature quite pleasant for August in South FL. The staff is certifiably nice; I can't wait to return.
We love to hear about people taking advantage of our $9 for 9 special on weekday afternoons. We hope you get the chance to return for another nine soon (we'll do our best to get you on the side you haven't played yet!).
Fun Day at Park Ridge
Fun course to play with vey nice greens, wide fairways, and some elevation. Shot placement is key.........
Great course for the money
Great afternoon special 9 holes $9.00 dollars and includes the cart. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Hats off to Ben. I highly recommend playing this course. Beautiful
Thanks for taking advantage of our $9 nine-hole tee time special. We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself and we hope to see you again very soon.
Elevations, in Florida?
Great course! Challenging elevation changes with greens in great shape! It was an enjoyable round on a great course. Highly recommend.
We can't thank you enough for recommending Park Ridge!
Greens are a bit bumpy and the grass around the greens are not well kept. Burn patches and a few dirt patches too close to the greens. Great layout, not your typical flat Florida golf course. Very friendly staff.
Thanks for coming out to play and for taking the time to leave a review. Due to the timing of your review, we have to think you played very close to the completion of our aerification process, and for that we apologize. We very much hope that you will come back for another visit soon as the course has already healed beautifully. Until then, keep 'em in the short stuff.
Humidity was brutal, but that's S. FL in July. Course was fun to play but it was nice to have one of the regulars along due to a large number of tee shots being blind due to the hills. Greens were in good shape and the speed was very consistent over the whole course. Very unusual course for S. FL in regard to all the hills and varying elevations.. Watch out for the rough because it is.
Thanks for coming out to play. Our elevation changes really are unique for the area and with all of the rain lately, the rough really is ... well, rough. Good tip on avoiding it. Hope to see you for another round in the near future.
The only course, locally, where there are hills. Makes the course different and interesting.
You hit the nail on the head. Since we are built on a retired landfill, there are a number of holes that feature elevation changes of up to 40 ft., which is truly unique for this area. Thanks for the review and we hope to see you again soon.
Not your typical Florida course
I've played Park Ridge a few times and always find it a challenge. The elevations are not typical of Florida, and even the par 3's present a challenge with uphill blind shots and extreme descending greens.
Thank you for the review. We are built on a retired landfill and that provides the unique elevation changes you mentioned... Number 11 and 14 are straight down the hill while 16 goes right back up it. Thanks again and we hope to see you again.
Like No Other
This course was absolutely gorgeous. The fairways greens, everything was in amazing shape. Appreciate the lightning detector which slowed the round by about 30 minutes, but better safe than sorry!. The staff is always friendly, and the course is just breathtaking. Elevation like no other place in South Florida!
We can't thank you enough for coming out to play and for the five-star review. We're glad that you were able to finish your round after the short lightning delay, but, as you said, better safe than sorry! We hope to see you for another round soon.
Always a Unique Experience
Always enjoy this course for a change of pace and a different layout than we see on all the other courses here. After all the rain, rough was thick and made it hard to find and advance ball. Considering all the rain, it was in very good shape.
We have received a tremendous amount of rain over the past month and are thrilled to hear you found the course to be in great shape. Last summer we completed a large drainage project and reviews like this help us know that our hard work is paying off. We hope to see you again soon.
Fun at a course under repair
Could only play the front nine. Even these greens were being aerated. Had to stay on cart path. Still had a great time.
We appreciate you coming out and taking advantage of our aerification rates. With all the rain we have received, the greens have healed nicely and are back to their normal selves. C'mon back soon!
Played 5 holes before the lightning and rain and the sirens ended play. Four pars and one bogey... first time breaking twenty. Still waiting to hear from GolfNow on your newest rain out policy
Big congrats on breaking twenty! Joking aside, we hope you are able to return to experience the rest of our course when a bit drier weather finally arrives. We appreciate the five-star review.
Nice place to have fun
The course was really fun to play, on the back nine I hooked up with two great women. The tips made you focus off the tee and added distance to the course, which increased the players fun factor.
It's definitely not a short golf course when played all the way back, but it sure does add to the elevation changes on holes like 11 and 12. We very much appreciate you giving us five stars!
TAKE OUT THE HILLS AND IT STINKS
No character to this course. Its like a house with an awesome kitchen but crummy layout. The course has revelation, which is NOT seen in South Florida - but the layout is not good. Been to this course about 3 times and doubt I would go back. Elevation is "cool", but novelty wears off quickly.
The course was in horrible shape. Tee boxes are in bad shape. Lots of crabgrass and divots. Fairways were in good shape. Greens were not cut and also had crabgrass.
Would rather go to Atlantic National / Lacuna right down the street from this course.
We're very sorry that you feel that way about our layout. We can honestly say, that is not something we hear very often as our layout is one of the most unique - and enjoyed - layouts in the area. We're made up of six par 3s, six par 4s and six par 5s combined with elevation changes that are unmatched in the area. We appreciate you coming to play and for taking the time to fill out a review.
