Rating 60.9

Located in western Lake Worth, Poinciana Country Club is one of several great short courses that south Florida has to offer. At just over 4,000 yards, it is a quick and challenging test of your target golf skills. The greens are small with large breaks and there are swaying palms lining the fairways. The layout consists of par 3s that range from 103 to 172 yards and par 4s that are approximately 300 yards. There are strategically placed hazards throughout the golf course that offer good short game practice for more advanced players. Poinciana Country Club can conveniently be played in less than four hours. The golf course is still gentle enough for beginners though. It is popular amongst locals but still a well kept secret from the rest of south Florida.

Greens are amazing

The greens roll straight or turn when they should. While not fast, they are easy to adjust to and provide consistent putting throughout the 18 holes.

Best Greens in South Florida

Seriously, the greens are better than Jacaranda West, roll straight, and make playing here so much fun. A super course for working on your short game with some short par 5s in play.

Great Value; Nice Greens

If you are a 15-25 handi-cap you must play this course! Super greens to practice your short game and the new owners are amazing! The course layout is pretty easy, but the greens are well enough protected to challenge even a good golfer. If you focus on tee to green you will really enjoy this course!

Ridiculous experience

We went to play this course early this morning and were denied access even though we had already paid through golf now . They were hostile and vulgar. Nobody at the course had any idea why they were treating us this way . Police got involved because of their hostility towards us and sided with us. The police even went as far as to advise the owner to seek another career. I would suggest you never play this course and advise your friends to avoid it as well. There are so many courses in south Florida there is no reason to support this type of establishment.

Ridiculous Experience

After arriving to our tee time on time and paid for, we were denied access to the course saying there was no room. Cops eventually showed up and noticed no one had teed off in 30 minutes. They simply denied us the service we paid for.

great for short game

Can see owners are trying hard to bring this course back, was in pretty good shape as of date we played, Hope they keep up the progress. They need to work on traps, more sand would be big improvement. Played it in March of 2018 and course was pretty beat up. Much better than then. great place to bring newbie golfer, or for intermediate to work on short game, worth the price they charge, Greens are pretty guarded by bunkers. So approach shots are tricky.

Fun course

This is a nice short course but you have to place some of your shots to avoid water hazards and traps. Good value for what we paid. Would definitely play there again.
