About

Par 72
Length 6673
Slope 137
Rating 73.4
Type Public/Municipal
Okeeheelee Golf Course offers 27 holes of championship golf. The name is Seminole for 'quiet waters,' an appropriate name since the course's secluded parkland setting overlooks the sparkling waters of Clear Lake. The holes are divided into three nine-hole courses that provide three different 18-hole combinations. Named after the wildlife that can be seen throughout the golf course, the Osprey, Heron, and Eagle nines all offer unique scenery and challenges. The Eagle/Osprey combination will test your target golf skills. The elevated greens are framed with strategically placed bunkers and deep rough and tall stands of trees line the fairways. There is no shortage of water on the course either. In addition to the three courses, Okeeheelee G.C. offers a driving range and a large putting green as well as chipping, pitching, and bunker practice areas.

A fun 9 on Osprey

We rode 9 on a typically hot South FL morning. We had a foursome of slow players ahead of us but they eventually let us play through. The course is beautiful, with some interesting undulations, a variety of lengths/hole designs, and quick greens. There are some narrow spots in fairways so watch out. All staff members were friendly and helpful. We look forward to next time.

We're so happy you stopped by! As a 27-hole facility, you'll have to come back for another round or two so you can get the full effect of everything Okeeheelee has to offer. Thanks for choosing to play with us and for sharing your experience publicly.

Very nice course

Great layout. Very pretty surroundings.

Will play there again. Great deal on Golf Now.

Needs better dining facility, and $2.50 WAY too much for cup of coffee.

Florida seasonal golf

The greens were aerated 5/31/18 and were rough and slow. Fairways and traps were good.

Aerification is a necessary evil this time of year in South Florida. We hope you have the chance to return once they've healed so you can get the full Okeeheelee experience.

The course is in decent shape but the greens were punched somewhat recently and they were a little bumpy.

Worth The Trip

Course is almost an hour from my house in south Broward but worth the trip. Love courses like this and Osprey Point where there aren't beat up condos surrounding it. Can't rate the greens since they had been aerated not long ago so they were a little bumpy with some rough patches, especially hole #2 on Eagle, short par 3. Overall layout is fantastic. Some short easy par 4's mixed in with some tough ones. Bev cart girl was very friendly. Great value for the money. Will go back when greens have come back in totally.

It's time for your next round, the greens are back! Thanks for taking the trip up from Broward. Since you mentioned that you also play Osprey Point (another member of the Palm Beach County Golf group) we'd suggest you look into our Frequent Player Card program. The FPC card will save you some money, which hopefully makes the drive a little easier to swallow. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great course except for the greens

Booked this course through Golf Now. Very nice course that we enjoyed playing. When we arrived at the course we were informed the greens were aerated but still in good shape. The trip to the course was 35-40 minutes and we didn't want to look for another course so we decided to play. Well the greens were in terrible shape. Most of them looked like sand greens I used to play as a kid. Normally Golf Now informs me if green aeration is underway. Either the course management or Golf Now dropped the ball in this case. This course is comprised of 3 nine hole layouts. Why not rotate aeration and leave one nine hole layout open for players?

Hello and thank you for the review. We at the golf course always notify GolfNow when we are doing any maintenance at all and very much apologize that you were blind sided by punched greens. Please send us an email at Golf@pbcgov.org so we can learn a little bit more about your experience in hopes of avoiding this issue in the future. Again, we do our best to notify every single golfer when we have aerated the greens. We hope you will return in a week or two so you can get the fully Okeeheelee experience.

Okeeheelee Golf

My wife and I really like Okeeheelee, since it offers a variety of wildlife and is manicured fairly well for a publicly-owned course. The three nines offer a variety of types of holes with varying degrees of difficulty. A variety of tee locations allows for all levels of golfer to have a fun or a challenging experience. We play here often. On this occasion we used a GolfNow Hot Deal, which seemed very reasonable in price. Unfortunately, after six holes we were called off the course for lightning. When I asked for a rain check in the pro shop I was told that since I paid GolfNow I needed to contact them. I've tried calling the 800-594-9280 number, but the recorded message plays and the number hangs up. We seem to have no recourse and feel that we received shabby treatment in this situation.

Just to follow up with you, we reached out to GolfNow and we understand they were able to get in touch with you and provide you with a partial return as well as a dozen TaylorMade golf balls. We're thrilled to hear they were able to resolve this and we thank you once again for coming to play.

We're sorry to hear about your inconvenience and for any confusion. The pro shop was correct in telling you that you would have to contact GolfNow directly to get a refund in this scenario as GolfNow is a third party partner of ours and the "Hot Deals" are sold directly by GolfNow. We have reached out to our GolfNow rep. and they will be reaching out to get this resolved for you. Thanks for your continued support and for the four star review.
