Rating 72.6
Type Public
Situated on what used to be farmland and later used for shellrock mining, Osprey Point Golf Club is hardly recognizable from its former landscape. The Parks and Rec Department of Palm Beach County took the abandoned land in South County Regional Park that was completely overgrown and turned it into Florida's first Audubon International Classic Signature Golf Course. To achieve this designation, the department instituted several environmental protection practices, increased the acres of natural habitat, and converted to more environmentally friendly grass on the tees, greens, and fairways. The golf course offers 27 holes that are played in three different combinations. The Falcon/Raven Course is one of the combinations. It has a rolling landscape that is enhanced by native vegetation and a playable quality thanks to five sets of tees.

Amazing

Only played nine holes (Falcon), and it was amazing. Very nice layout with excellent course conditions. The wildlife is incrediabke, and there are no houses on the course. Please do yourself a favor and play here, especially if you’re on vacation.

We'd suggest you take your own advice and return to check out the other two nine hole courses! Thanks so much for the great review.

First Time at Course

First time playing there and this course was very very nice even the pouring rain for two holes!! There is one warning though, if you do not have somewhat control of the golf ball you may want to bring a lot of extra balls. I think two of the other guys in my foursome lost somewhere around 3 to 4 dozen balls.

Thanks for checking us out! It sounds like a few players in your group got a good look at some of the natural wetland areas that run through and around the course. The fairways are wide, but if you spray it a bit you surely will find trouble. We're glad you enjoyed your experience and hope that you will join us again during your next trip down from New York.

Pace of play

It was a busy day at the course so the pace was slow. Usually the pace is on track. Over all the course was great as usual.

Hello and thank you for playing Osprey Point. We are a busy 27-hole facility, but have 18 holes currently closed for aerfiication so we apologize if the pace of play was a bit slower than usual. Our goal is to provide the best conditions possible so rather than having the third nine open with freshly punched greens, we are letting them heal so they match the quality of the other greens. We hope you understand. Keep 'em in the short stuff!

GOOD COURSE

Course is laid out well. Played Raven & Falcon. Hawk was closed, but is my personal favorite. Raven tees, fairways and greens were good. Hawk tee boxes & greens were recently aerated. Fairways were in good shape. Would definitely go back......at the right cost. Wish the parking lot wasn't so far from the temporary clubhouse and also the cart barn. Hate leaving my clubs out of my sight.

Thank you so much for the review. Once the construction of the clubhouse is complete, there will be a few more parking spots added that are closer to both the clubhouse and the bag drop. Hopefully these will do the trick and you won't have to lose sight of your sticks. We appreciate you coming out to play and hope to see you again soon.

Can't believe it is county-owned

We played the 9 for 9 special on Falcon just after noon (in July in South FL). Apparently there are lots of other crazy people because the course was quite busy, even on a stiflingly hot weekday. The course is gorgeous--natural with no encroaching houses or condos. The Paspalum greens roll great and the fairways are in wonderful shape. We'll be back!

Like this course - well maintained

Well maintained course. Greens, fairways, traps were all in good shape. Friendly staff all around. Good to know they are remodeling clubhouse and building a restaurant. Much needed and will enhance this course.

That's right -- we're expanding our clubhouse and adding a restaurant. We expect both to be open in 2019 and we can't wait!

First Time Playing

A Real Gem!

First time playing here, and couldn’t have been more delighted! I was paired up with another group and they were excellent to play with. The course was a little wet but nothing that was out the ordinary. The tee boxes were great, the fairways plush and the greens although they had been punched maybe about a month ago were fine. I would highly recommend this course. The price was a steal!

Osprey

Played Falcon-Raven. Falcon should be tip top in a week or so. Greens still a tad sow due to punching and seeding. Still rolled ok. Ravens greens were much quicker. Overall course is in great condition. Good challenge and can’t beat the price for a course surrounded only by nature, no urban sprawl. Highly recommend this course. Looking forward to coming back and getting on the hawk soon.

We very much appreciate the five-star review! As you mentioned in your review, there is not a single home on the property and we border the Everglades in West Boca, so there is no shortage of wildlife. We look forward to your return, but want to let you know that Hawk will be closed until at least August 1 due to aerification, so you'll want to give that nine a little time to get the full experience. Cheers!

Fun time

Went with a friend to play a game. They set us up with a third guy who was very friendly so it was all good. The first nine holes was great! Tee boxes and greens were nice and smooth. The second nine was not as good. Course was not back to par after airating it and being closed for a month. Greens had no true line you could aim on. Usually not a problem at this course, don't know what happened this time. They are redueing the proshop and making a bigger eating area. Should be really nice when finished.

First and foremost, thanks for coming out to play. As you noted in your review, we did have that nine closed for maintenance and in another week or so, it will be back to its normal self. Aerification is a necessary evil - especially here in sunny South Florida. We hope that you will return soon so we can have the chance to turn your four-star review into a five star.

Another great round

Osprey Point is a great Palm Beach County recreation facility. It is 3 nine hole layouts that allow the course to decide which two make an 18 hole round. Played Falcon/Raven today. Hawk closed this month for summer maintenance- Falcon was closed last month. Great time again. Course conditions were good on Falcon, the punch work was still growing in and greens were a bit slower. Raven was untouched so greens were great. Course congratulations were wonderful. Playing in an area without housing everywhere- priceless. Great value and conditions.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We decided to close one of our nine-hole courses each month over the summer to do maintenance in hopes of being able to provide the best conditions possible for 18 holes all summer long. We look forward to your return. Keep 'em in the short stuff!
