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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello, we are a bit troubled by your comments about our staff and would like to learn more about your experience at Okeeheelee Golf Course.

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.


Commented on 04/27/2018

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.
