No water hazards on this course, but lots of waste bunkers. The fairways are more like hard pan. Traps and Greens were very good.

I played this course a few times. I am a senior playing from the white tee boxes. I found the course very fair. This course for a public course getting a lot of play has been in decent shape. The prices are reasonable I would recommend to average players

In this golf course it is no waterhazarts. In the sides of fairway it is some places white wasteland, so it is netter to play with yellow or orange balls. You can find them must more easier. It is a typical tourist course. The price was not bad, in december under 30 dollars per round. It is not a very... More

Thank you for taking time play the historic West Palm Beach Golf Course. We must admit we are very busy during the season since we are an affordable public golf course that golfers enjoy playing. We are unique since we have no water hazards but our naturally native waste areas can be a challenge for those who find them! We... More

I have played a lot of golf in the area. I recently played here. The club house is small and looks like a temporary trailer. I needed golf balls. The lady there said they were competitively priced. The Bridgestone e6 were about 32 a dozen which is high. The tee times ran about 15 minutes behind. One I teed off... More

West palm is one of my favorite public courses in the area. It was no water. But lots of waste sand. It is always in pretty good shape all around. Did notice some greens run at much different speeds. Always well priced. Everyone is very nice and friendly.

I have played here for years but they literally took out all of the trees and replaced them with sand. In windy conditions you need to wear goggles so that the sand doesn't blow in your eyes. The clubhouse has been deemed unfit so they are going to have to rebuild it. It is a great place with a historic... More

This course was full of waste areas, they call them traps, but not. The course didn't have any character nor aesteics. The good thing was it did move well, played in less than 4 hours.

Thank you for playing West Palm Beach Municpal Golf Course. The golf course was restored in 2009 to play more like the renowned architect Dick Wilson intended when it was designed in 1947. The restoration returned it to a "links" style course with some broad native/natural waste areas very similar to Pinehurst #2 that just hosted the US Open. We... More

Course was nice to play, not much water but sand enough. Almost as a dessert course. But fairways dry, greens also but some faster than others. Good overall experience but clubhouse was out of use and so facilities were not up to the standards. Pace of play a bit over 4 ½ hrs. Course is recommendable but be aware that... More

This was the first course I played in Florida for many years. I played 9 holes one day to miss the rain and 18 the next. Course employees were very helpful and the cost at $45 was very reasonable. There is lots of sand on the course, but the sand is well kept and if you have any skill with... More
