Located in South County Regional Park, Osprey Point Golf Club offers the first course in Florida to be designated as an Audubon International Classic Signature Golf Course. You would never be able to tell from looking at it now, but the site was farmland before it was used for shellrock mining and then abandoned. The landscape had been overgrown but the Parks and Rec Department of Palm Beach County transformed it into a lush and scenic course. The golf course is a 27-hole layout that can be played in three different 18-hole combinations. All of the tees, greens, and fairways feature environmentally friendly Seashore Paspalum. The Hawk/Falcom combination has a gently rolling landscape enhanced with native vegetation. The elevation changes are subtle but they still provide a few tricky lies.

9:33 tee time started at 10:10. 27 hole Course and rain from previous day had 9 holes closed which caused delayed start times. Best course we played during the vacation! Pace was good after we started. My only regret is that I can’t play it again tomorrow!

We appreciate your understanding on the delayed start. We got an unprecendented amount of rain in the month of May and we did our very best to still provide the best golfing experience possible to each of our guests. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Boca is known for incredible private clubs, but Osprey is a public course that give you the conditions of a private club. My favorite course in south FL. Just love not seeing homes and run down condos surrounding a golf course. Fairways and areas around greens are immaculate. If you don't put it out of play, you are guaranteed a nice lie. I get the Frequent Players Card and this is the best course on there. I wish it was more reasonable during the winter months for us locals, but I will play it as much as possible spring/summer/fall.

Hard to find a public course in excellent condition. This is it. Also scoreable due to lack of greenside bunkers. The greens make up for that

Every time I am in Boca I make sure my visit includes at least one round at Osprey. The course is beautiful, well maintained and always a challenge. You cannot go wrong. Staff is helpful and rangers don’t interfere but provide assistance as needed.

This course is designed and groomed for seniors and short, accurate hitters. The fairways are mowed like greens and the greens are like pool tables. No collars, second cut, rough, etc. Lots of sand and spoil. Leave the driver at home. Weird 27 hole layout with random 9's paired at the turn. Fun, above average muni course that you would expect in "Boca".

Thanks for making the trip up from Ft. Lauderdale. We offer five tee box selections with our longest 18-hole combination measures more than 6,700 yards. Your tip about the looming danger is spot on... You definitely need to know where to hit it. Hopefully you were impressed enough to make the trip back soon!

This course is the best in south Florida for what they charge. It’s in excellent condition from tees to greens. Bring extra balls, if you can’t hit fairways you will be loosing balls.

We're willing to bet by the number of exclamation points used, this review was written just off of the 18th green by a first-time visitor to Osprey Point. A common theme for those expecting a typical municipal golf course -- Osprey Point is far from that. We appreciate the excellent review.

Thanks for the five-star review. With five tee box options, golfers of any level can find a length they are comfortable with. Our longest combination from the tips is 6,700+ yards. We hope to see you again on your next trip down from Canada!
