A couple of the prior reviews were obviously about a different course. This is one of the finest courses in South Florida. , a real hidden gem tucked in the southwest corner of West Palm Beach. This is a private golf club with no housing, no tee times and sub-4 hour rounds. This course is in beautiful condition and the greens are near perfect. Friendly staff and finest practice facility I’ve ever seen in Florida. If you’re looking to join a course in this area, you must give this place serious cobsideration

"This course had no fairways. All grasses except for the greens were dead."

Used to love playing and was looking forward to the round. Didn't know that banyon was closing this month and being done over by jack Nicholas. They killed all grass except on greens. Was like hitting off of pavement. Some of our foursome aimed for traps rather than non existent fairway.

New management planning resort facilities. Pro shop in trailer while clubhouse under renovation. Course seem to be a mix of Bermuda and northern grasses. They have daily times on Lastminute golfer.com that can be a good value; otherwise is expensive. Fairways and greens in good shape.

One of my favorite courses to play in S, Florida. This private Joe Lee designed layout is truly unique to Palm Beach county. You will not see any homes as you play this superbly conditioned layout. Also, none of the holes parallel each other. Lots of natural foliage adds to the golfing experience.
