About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6519
Slope 129
Rating 71.5
Type Public
Formerly known as Grand Lacuna Golf Club, this par-71 championship course now goes by the name Atlantic National Golf Club. Designed in the late 1980s by Joe Lee, the course was designated one of the 50 best public courses in Florida. The challenging layout has plenty of variety that will require all different types of shots. Golfers will find that they need to use every club in their bag. Water hazards come into play on several holes but the strategically placed bunkers that lurk along the greensides and fairways are particularly tricky. There are some tough holes but it is an accommodating layout for all skill levels, especially since it has four diverse sets of tees. In addition to the golf course, Atlantic National offers a grass driving range, two putting greens, and a chipping area with a practice bunker.

Finally Dry and Ready to Play at top Shape again!

I play this course about once a month and it is always in great shape, love this place. Greens are rolling fast and true in great condition. Fairways and tee boxes are great. You cant beat the course conditions for the price. There is some course maintainance going on at one par three (#8) currently but other then that its ready to play. Great practice facilities and the food is good to. Only drawback is if we get some consistent rain, 5-6 fairways get water logged and really soft but they are all good as of today.

Slow Play

Course of Play was good for the Front 9, with at least a hole between groups probably 8-10 minutes between groups, however during the transition to the back 9, the course of play slowed to the point where on Hole 12-14 your could see 5 groups over two holes. Had to wait 15 minutes for four other groups on Hole 14 (three on the actual hole). Player's Assistant was well you're 7 minutes ahead, but he couldn't explain why he had to pass three other groups on a Par 4 to chat with us about pace of play. During the hotter times of the day these courses need to stack groups 12-15minutes apart, to alleviate groups jamming up.

Thank you Timothy7748939 for the GREAT review! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a few comments about your recent experience at Atlantic National Golf Club. We do operate at Nine minute tee time intervals which does allow for a smoother pace of play. Your round happened to be on a typical Saturday morning, when the golf course is engrossed with other players. If you're not waiting on the group ahead of you, you've fallen out of position. We can understand that waiting for the group ahead of you is unpleasant in the summer with elevated temperatures. However, it's part of this beautiful game. We look forward to your next visit to our facility!

Fun Course in O.K. Condition - Good Value

This was my first time playing Atlantic National. I was able to get a great deal on GolfNow.com.

All the people I met and encountered at the golf course were very polite and nice.

I really like their range (plenty of grass area to hit from and in very good condition).

The GPS in the carts was very nice especially for someone like myself who has never played the course before. I really like how the GPS give a "fly over" of each hole when you pull up to the tee box.

For the money this was a very good course. Not an extremely difficult layout but was fun and challenging. Greens had just been sanded (the sand was not watered into the greens) so the greens were EXTREMELY slow. I was not told of the sanding of the greens until I got to the first green and saw it had just been sanded. I wish I would have been told by the pro shop so I would have known what to expect.

Several of the tee boxes were in very poor condition (little grass to hit off of, but lots of sand). It seemed as though half the tee boxes were nice and half were very poor.

I don't know why, but on many of the holes it smelled as though sewage was in the ponds or canals. I could not figure out why, but many of the holes really had an awful stench to them.

Overall, I liked the course and the value you get for the price you pay.

Thank you RETTJ for the Good Review! We thank you for taking the time to leave us some comments about your experience. Upon reading your comments, you played on an afternoon where we performed common maintenance practice of topdressing the greens and applying fertilizer to some "hot spots" around the course. We look forward to your next visit to Atlantic National Golf Club!

Wet weather

rain

Began raining at my tee time. Rained for 45-50 minutes. Closed course due to standing water on course which tells me that they take pride in the conditions on the course.

Enjoyable Day

Have played this course for many years from back when it was Grand Lacuna to Atlantic National now. Very playable layout that depending on the tees can make for very challenging to relatively tame. Since it was bought out they renovated the course and it is in excellent condition which makes for good golf. Played on a hot day but pace was great and after the first tee we didn't have to wait but for a few shots here and there. Will definitely be back again.

A new favorite course

First time I got to play here and it's already one of my favorites. From the friendly greeting at the pro shop to Bruce the starter guiding you and all the staff helping along the way it was a great experience. The course was in great shape even after all the rain, GPS cart were helpful and the round went at a nice pace. The layout was challenging and gave you an opportunity to use all clubs from the blue tees. I will definitely play here again. Soon. Like this Sunday!
