Rating 72.8
Type Public
West Palm Beach Golf Course has hosted a variety of tournaments since opening in 1947, some that have included famous players such as Arnold Palmer. This historic course stands out from all of the area's public courses. Unlike Florida's many flat courses, West Palm Beach has an undulating terrain that provides interesting elevation changes. The course features elevated tees and greens and rarely is there a flat lie. The rolling hills are covered with native vegetation, palm trees, and mature pines and oaks. There is also no water to be found on the golf course, another rare occurrence in this area. In 2009, the course underwent a major renovation that made it environmentally friendly. There is also a full grass driving range and large practice area that overlook West Palm Beach Golf Course.

horrible course

I have never played on a course in such terrible condition since I've been playing golf. There was dead wood, branches and piles of leaves everywhere. The carts were not functioning properly and we had to have both carts replaced during play, and one cart (the replacement) had a velcro part that would not hold up its rain cover for our clubs. There was sand and weeds on the fairways. The grass had not been cut so you could distinguish fairway from rough. Ball washers had no water in them. I got the impression this course is about to be sold and will close soon, so it is not being maintained. What a waste of money and time!

West Palm Beach Golf Club

At one time this was one of the nicest courses in West Palm Beach. I have been playing here for 40 years. For what reason I dont know, but it has slowly gone down hill. There was debris everywhere, overgrowth, and where they replaced the trees with sand years ago is a snaggle of weeds and the fairways a mess. I am very disappointed with how it looks. Like so many other courses in Palm Beach County that look like they are going to sell out to a contractor that will replace it with condos.

Fallen Giant

Once a tour stop and the course of my youth, terminated it's golf commission and was left to rot by non golfing city politicians. Tragic!

Playing in Iraq

I have been playing here occasionally for 20 years. the staff is very nice. The City has decided to destroy the course by neglect and sell it to a developer. Its a disaster. Even with all the rain you have a hard time finding a piece of grass to hit off. Stay away.

Sold!!

From what I understand the golf course has been sold or leased to a new company. Hopefully they will restore the course back to its old glory days. It is a very nice track. As of now the course is in poor condition.

Used to be a great course. Redone by Mark McCumber and now its a mess

Course is in the process of being redone again. The day we played yhe course was in terrible shape. Hope they can redo it and make it a great course again. The course was a tour stop back in the day and maybe they can get it back to its early success.
