Situated just minutes from the Gold Coast beaches in the heart of Boca Raton, Southwinds Golf Course enjoys warm ocean breezes and lush vegetation. Water is a prominent presence throughout the course. Water hazards come into play on 16 holes. There are also mature trees throughout that will play a deciding role in shaping your shots. The golf course offers some enjoyably difficult holes but overall the challenges are manageable. Each hole is unique offering everything from opportunities to "grip it and rip it" and others that are defined by trees and lakes. The golf course finishes with one of its many water holes but on this par 4, you have to hit over water twice. In addition to the golf course, Southwinds also offers a driving range a putting green with a practice bunker.

Nice course; friendly staff

We’d only played here once before and left wondering why we don’t play here more often. We enjoyed our round a lot; course is in very good shape and pace of play not too slow.. There are plenty of water hazards and sand traps to make the course challenging. Staff was pleasant.

DISRESPECTFUL & RUDE EMPLOYEES

The course was nice and in good shape and enjoyed playing there with some friends. The Staff at this golf course is very disrespectful and puts little value in the entertainment and service of their customers. As I showed up the cart guy said I should have booked a tee time if I wanted to play the course even though there was barely anyone on it. Staff was reluctant to sell me range balls and made excuses about how the machine didn’t work before eventually caving in. Cart guy refused to send me off to the first tee for 20 minutes despite there being nobody on it, and when I told him that his response was “go find something else to do”. When I was on the 18th hole on my second hit that same cart guy told me I had to immediately leave the course and put the cart in as the sun was going down (still 45 mins before sunset) I responded by telling him that I was playing for my personal all time record (which I was). He responded by telling me “I don’t care about your record”. The staff there was so unfriendly, selfish, and impatient that they couldn’t wait the 2 minutes for me to finish the last hole and instead took great pride in putting a dent in my day. I will not be returning to this course and recommend that everyone stays away from a terrible group of people.

Southwinds a revisit

This course is very close to my house and was my home course for many years.
Had not played there in 5 years, as I have been playing more executive courses as my distance isn’t what it used to be.
What a pleasant surprise. Like seen an old dear friend after a long time.
Totally enjoyed the round. The course is in great shape and while my distance was not as long as it it used to be
I was more accurate in more in the fairway than I used to be.
Scored 96 used to score in the eighties. Even had a whole in one there.
It was a total pleasure.

Aeration

Greens were impossible to get a good line n then putt with all the hole from aeration that was recently done . I play here quite often and love the course it offers me a challenge to my level of play . I will be back .

It was quite slow playing which made the heat of the day more difficult to deal with.
