Rating 73.2
Type Municipal
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.

Great day

(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.

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.

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.
