Delray Beach Golf Club is the championship sister course to the executive Lakeview Golf Club, which is located less than a mile away. It is also less than three miles from downtown Delray Beach. Opened in 1926, Donald Ross designed the layout and over the years, touring professionals on their way to Miami have made it a habit to stop and play the classic design. Its still-growing popularity is a testament to the quality of the round. It provides a quick round that can be played in just over 4 hours but it still offers enough challenges for low handicappers. There is very little water coming into play but with the strategic bunkering that is abundant throughout the course, water features will hardly be missed. The club also has a reputation for being one of the most well maintained public courses in the area as well.

My group plays 3 times a week year round having gained acess to many private and semi private courses in addition to the publicly open courses the pace of play on this course is ridiculously slow....4 1/2 hours for 18 holes this time....last time it was 5 1/2. The staff could care less....

the pro in the pro shop is an jerk.....We will not be playing here again save your money and enjoy golf someplace else.

Golfnow informed us of aeration going on. We were not informed that the back nine hole were closed. They were sending groups out as they came in, the pace was horrible. We requested a rain check due to hideous slow play after nine, it was denied. The ladies behind the counter said, it’s not raining and were very short. Very disappointed.

Was a little disappointed in the course condition. Lots of bare areas in the fairways, tee boxes kind of beat up and putting was difficult due to uneven playing surface. Staff is friendly and they will supply a ice cooler when purchasing beer in the clubhouse.

This is a well designed fun Donald Ross layout that is the only course close in Delray for those of us living East of the Inland Waterway. The interesting layout, improved greens and convenience keep us coming back despite mediocre fairways and slow weekend/holiday pace of play.
