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.

Went back to Poinciana in Lake Worth and was happy to see that the course was vastly improved since last May when it needed work. Good course for the amateur.

Older course, not in good shape, had rangers but they didn't do anything, got the oldest cart they had I think. Had to be 15 years old or more, broken windshield. They hadn't mowed the course in 4 to 7 days or more at least I think. Not worth the money to play there. I won't be back.

We arrived at the course 15 minutes before our golf now booking and although there was no one anywhere in sight on the course we were told to wait for another twosome who had also booked online.They arrived (a nice husband and wife) and we began our round which can only be described as extremely slow and our usual two and a half hour round was stretched into four hours.During the round we encountered no other players in front of us or behind us.I believe we were made to wait because of our discount rate and the courses lack of business.Very disappointing.

I played this course through a golf discount membership. I was early for my tee time and was told I needed to wait until my tee time. No problem there, despite sitting and observing that 0 golfers teed off in the 25 minutes that I waited. At the appointmented tee time my husband and I and a third person who joined us went to the tee box. The woman who checked us in ran over and started screaming that we couldn’t tee off yet as we had to wait for her paying customers. We paid but not directly to the course. She was rude and made the experience at the course uncomfortable.

The course was not well maintained. If the course is using third party booking agents due to poor attendance, some thought should be given to how they treat customers. I wouldn’t play the course again even if it truly was free.

Finally returned to Poinciana after about 6 months, due to dislike for the shape of the greens at that time. Must say it is much improved since last April. The course is somewhat challenging and layed out nicely. The greens are back to normal, so putting was a pleasure. It was worth the wait and we would definitely return.

A good course for the money, given that we got a good rate through golfnow.com. We played on the first afternoon that brought temperatures below 80° and in Florida that's a great golf day! We had a good time and were able to take our time because there were a few players on the course. Sorry to say, a few greens need some serious work. A couple Tee-boxes were hard to find, probably due to a recent hurricane blowing some of the signs around. The bunkers and some of the water hazards made a few holes very challenging. However generally fairways made the course very forgiving. We would definitely play Poinciana again.
