Palm Beach Golf Course is an enjoyable par-3 course that offers a round that is as good as a championship course. It is one of the top-rated par-3 courses in the country. The innovative Paspalum turf that is used throughout the course is both drought and saltwater-tolerant, guaranteeing lush green conditions no matter what. The course has a rolling terrain, offering curves and elevations that provide scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. Almost every hole on the golf course enjoys beautiful scenery but being sandwiched between the ocean and the Intracoastal, there are treacherous breezes that can affect your game. The layout starts on the beach and then moves along the Intracoastal. The sandy dunes on the beach provide the course with some interesting challenges. It is an excellent place to hone your short game skills.

Beautiful setting for a quick round of par 3 golf. Located between the Ocean and Intercoastal, it is a relaxing and fun course. The staff, especially Patrick, the starter, are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it.

Great Par 3

Avid 4x+ per week golfer, first time playing this course. It's definitely gorgeous. Being on the island, incredible views and beautiful palms around is a treat. Totally a walkable course and recommended if you have a pushcart. I took a cart but probably won't if I go back.

The cart guy is a bit of a dick and absolutely should be wearing a mask our of respect for the guests even if "the state said he doesn't have to" but everything else was nice. From an actual playing conditions point of view, this place is super well maintained but I did expect the greens to run faster. If they ran about 25% faster, I'd certainly come here more often for the iron play.

No driver needed. Biggest club I used all day was a 5i to reach the green on hole 3 and 4. Otherwise 7i was the biggest needed all day. This can be a great course to play with a single wedge too - get around with just a PW and a putter. You're not going to reach all the greens that way, but you'd get a ton of practice with that wedge.
