Rating 73.2
Type Public
With a name meaning 'quiet waters' in the Seminole language, Okeeheelee Golf Course is situated amidst lush, rolling hills that overlook the sparkling waters of Clear Lake. There are 27 championship holes that are divided into three nines and can be played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Osprey, Heron, and Eagle nines are named after the various wildlife that can be seen throughout. Each golf course offers a different set of challenges and scenery. Okeeheelee's Osprey/Heron Course features a variety of elevation changes. There are scenic views from the elevated greens but don't become too distracted since there are many elements to contend with including towering trees, strategically placed bunkers, and deep rough lining the fairways. There are also plenty of water hazards coming into play.

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.
