Rating 72.3

There are three different championship nines at Westchester Golf & Country Club: the Blue, Red, and Gold. There is also an 18-hole, par-3 course that is great for a practice round. All designed by Karl Litten, the courses are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Red/Blue combination is covered with lush vegetation that is unique to southern Florida. The golf course has a classic layout that offers something for both low and high handicappers. There is plenty of water coming into play on all three courses, typical of a traditional Florida golf course. All three nines present a different set of challenges, which provide almost endless options for players. To make the club even more appealing, Westchester Golf & Country Club sits just minutes away from the beach.

Greens are disappointing

Have played there several times. Most of time the greens are two slow. Sometimes the pace can be a little slow. Considered joining with a friend but have reconsidered. For the price there are better courses

Worst course in Palm Beach County

1) Course is in poor condition. Fairways are dirt in many places, greens in terrible shape (fungus, sand, bumpy and just gif awful(

2) Staff rudest in any industry I’ve ever encountered. I submitted an email request to see if grace would be extended for single carts to golfers with health conditions. Alex responded by saying that if I don’t like it I can play elsewhere, Westchester will have no problem recovering the money my group isn’t spending by charging an extra $10 to those who want to ride alone and ended the email with stay cool Fonzie ayyyeeeee. Alex also sent this email after 9pm at night... who does this? I have this in writing!

As an avid golfer that plays multiple rounds a week, Osprey Point, Park Ridge, Atlantis, Atlantic National, and even courses like Okeheelee and Boca Muni are in way better shape and don’t have staffs that are equipped with the customer service skills.

Westchester- do better, literally with everything.

Horrible horrible horrible

From course conditions to the most unprofessional staff you’ll ever deal with, this course is the worst value for the money in palm beach county.

Fairways and greens are as well manicured as an abandoned property in some places and overall they are poor throughout. What’s the point of having 27 holes if you can’t even manage 9 of them. Putting on these greens resembles playing Plinko on the Price is Right.

Do yourself a favor, go to Osprey point, park ridge, Atlantis, Atlantic National or even Boca Muni- they are in WAY BETTER SHAPE.

The staff is amongst the rudest I’ve dealt with in any industry. When I asked via email about being able to ride in a single cart without Paying an additional fee due to a health condition, Alex, sent a snarky email back saying they would not extend any grace and if I don’t like it I can play elsewhere because they will have no issue recovering the money my group isn’t spending at Westchester by charging an extra fee to those who want to ride alone. He ended the email with stay cool fonzie ayyyyeeee ...and sent it after 9pm... who does this?

There is also a severe lack of following CDC Covid 19 safety recommendations including: staff not wearing masks in the pro shop, carts not sanitized between rounds and the extra charge to ride by yourself even though Covid numbers are exploding in palm beach.

As a local avid golfer that plays multiple rounds per week,, this is the last course I would play in the Broward, palm beach area.

DOES NOT COVER THIS COURSE

Westchester does not take reservations through GolfNow. If you book this course through this site, Westchester will not have your reservation and they will have to reschedule your tee time. DO NOT book this course, you won’t be able to play when you arrive at the course.

Pleasant experience till the end of round

Have played the course many times and its only an 8 minute drive from my house. The tee time was for 12:10 and there was no starter to tell anybody which 9 you were supposed to play. So my playing partner and decided to choose the 9 with the least amount of people. Still no direction when we finished our first 9 and when we arrived at the 1st tee or our tenth hole it was a parking lot. So we skipped the first 2 holes and when we finished the 9th we started back to complete 1 and 2 and then we basically chastised by the starter who wanted our names and tee time. I never seen a course charge extra for taking a single cart during covid

Ned to update website regarding greens

Course played well staff were helpful and friendly. The only downside was that they had sanded the greens and they were all over the place. Once settled in and rolling again I would give it 5 stars

For the negative reviewers of this course

First of all, the course is in great shape, greens were aerated during Covid-19 shut down And are rolling well. This course has 3 nines so it doesn’t get the wear and tear of an 18 hole course.
Staff are great, I play here all the time, nothing but courteous and friendly.

So negative reviewers, please don’t come back and play this course. It’ll make it much easier for me to get an early tee time.
Thanks in advance

Horrible staff

Came to play a round late in the day. When paying for my round the guy at the desk was pretty rude, asked him how his day was and he just ignored me. Fine, whatever, when returning our carts the lady with curly brown hair, pale skin, thick build scolded us for taking too long. We were a foursome and had let a twosome play through already. Big tried to walk away and she kept chirping me. Calle dme a liar as I was walking away. Guy came out and did nothing, so if you wanted to be treated like a criminal then this is the place. Absolutely awful people with no regard for being polite. Apparently that is not something they train their staff on. Not a great course for the price.. not well maintained, rude from every aspect of the course. So many other beautiful courses in the area. Spend your money elsewhere.

Disappointed

This used to be a favorite of mine. Unfortunately, this course has gone downhill in conditions and management of play. We were stuck behind a group that was three holes behind the nearest group and the round was unbearable!
