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.

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.

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!

This round was the most frustrating round that I have played this year. There was a consistent wait before nearly every shot to the point that the round was unplayable. A member of the foursome that I was playing in called for a ranger. When the ranger came out and saw the group in front of us he laughed and said good luck.

For the money this was a great course. Not an extremely difficult layout but was fun and challenging. Greens were in good shape, rolled well, and had moderate speed.

I would recommend and I will return.

Played solo at the 7 am time, so can't comment on pace of play, after a heavy night of rain. The course was in good shape except for the bunkers which they were tending to on my way around. Mostly wide open with trouble visible from the tee. Longish par 3's for an infrequent golfer. A good mix of target golf and grip & rip. Will probably play there again this vacation.
