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.

I have played this course several times and it has never been in such great shape.

Great conditions from tee to green.

We also played in 4 hours being a foursome which on Sunday is great.

Truly enjoyable and very unique.

I have played Park Ridge several times recently and I really enjoy it every time. It is very challenging but very fair with a great layout that is completely different from any other golf course in the region. The course is much drier since they did a renovation on their drainage system last year. They have recently cut back much of the thick vegetation along side the fairways which makes finding miss hit shots easier. If I have any complaints it would be the Course was extremely slow that day and no ranger was there but it was extremely windy which likely caused the slow pace.

4 of us played and had trouble right from the start with the guys who take your bags for the cart. The people I was playing with arrived before us and they were rude to themas well. The front nine lacks any imagination and is just back and forth golf with the other fairway hitting into you and vise versa. The 8th hole is a disaster. We had 16 people on the hole or waiting to play it. It took about 40 minutes to play that one hole. The woman who was supposed to be moving things along did nothing to help.

The back nine was much better. The layout was interesting and was fun to play.. They need to train their help not to be rude as we had trouble with another helper outback. The back nine is the only reason I would consider this course again.

First time playing this course in two years. Drainage has been added, but still would not play it in wet weather based on past history.

Management has tamed the tiger. The Bush is getting trimmed back, hills have been planted with grass instead of the wild growth of yesterday. I am sure that this facilitated smoother play and less ball hawking. The greens were very fast, but true, fairways were well trimmed and the sand well stocked.

All in all a great experience. Being surrounded by hills is a unique experience in South Florida. Do not miss this course.

I have played this course several times in the last few weeks. It is just a great layout with terrain and elevation unlike any other course in the area. There are several holes with picturesque views you would not expect in south Florida. The driving range is excellent with thick grass similar to the fairways. Being a county run course they do a great job with course maintenance. The staff is friendly and professional. I highly recommend playing this golf course.

We appreciate the feedback and have made this a focal point. We do our best, but have asked our staff to be on the lookout and we've added new cart signs asking golfers to repair their ball marks. Because, hey, no one wants to putt on the moon... We have already seen a drastic improvement and the greens are rolling great.
